AIR OVER THE VA HOSPITAL IN
MANCHESTER. A GROUP CALLED THE MILITARY
RELIGIOUS FREEDOM FOUNDATION H
FILED A LAWSUIT TO HAVE THIS
BIBLE REMOVED FROM A POW-MIA
TABLE IN THE BUILDING’S LOBBY.>>RIGHT NOW, THE V.A. IS A
TRAIN WRECK OF
UNCONSTITUTIONALITY AS THEY
ELEVATE CHRISTIANITY TO THE
SUPREME POSITION OF DOMINANCE
DIRECT VIOLATION OF THE U.S. CONSTITUTION. IT’S SHAMEFUL, IT’S DISGRACEFUL. ANDY: THE CONTROVERSY STARTED IN
JANUARY, WHEN THE MRFF AND THE
V.A. AGREED TO REMOVE THE BIBLE
FROM THE TABLE. IT WAS PLACED IN A NEARBY
CABINET. ABOUT TWO MONTHS LATER, IT WAS
PUT BACK ON THE TABLE IN A
PLEXI-GLASS CASE. VETERAN PAUL MARTIN’S GROUP, T
NORTHEAST POW-MIA NETWORK, GOT
THE WORLD WAR II ERA BIBLE FOR

STATEMENT CALLING THE LAWSUIT
NOTHING MORE THAN AN ATTEMPT TO
FORCE THE A – FORCE V.A. INTO
CENSORING A SHOW OF RESPECT FOR
AMERICA’S TRW MIA COMMUNITY. THEY SAID, MAKE NO MISTAKE, V.A. WILL NOT BE BULLIED ON THIS
ISSUE. MANY VETERANS VISITING THE
DISPLAY HAD STRONG FEELINGS ON
THE ISSUE.>>IT’S A SPIRITUAL ITEM THAT
MANY OF US VETERANS LOOK TO FOR
SUPPORT. I THINK IT WOULD BE A SHAME AND
A SIN TO REMOVE IT.>>I FEEL THIS IS A SACRED PLACE
AND IT SHOULD BE RESPECTED. THE BIBLE IS PART OF THE
RECKONING THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE
LEFT BEHIND. ANDY: LAWYERS FOR THE V.A. WILL
BE GIVEN A CHANCE TO RESPOND. NO COURT DATES HAVE BEEN
