  • National Guard won't allow its own troops to be honored at Vacation Bible School

    No worries though, they can participate in gay parades instead.

    Members of the Missouri National Guard were scheduled for a Thursday appearance (in a Humvee), but they failed to show up because, they said, federal regulations prevent military activities that could appear to endorse any religious or sectarian faction.

    Specifically, the military regulation states:

    “Army participation must not selectively benefit (or appear to benefit) any person, group, or corporation (whether profit or nonprofit); religion, sect, religious or sectarian group, or quasi-religious or ideological movement.”
    ...
    “We were told it was against military policy for National Guard troops to participate in Vacation Bible School,” the pastor told Fox News. “They said if the National Guard had assets on church property it would look like the National Guard is sponsoring the Baptist religion.”

    Interestingly, this June, the U.S. Department of Defense allowed an American military color guard to march in the annual gay pride parade in Washington, D.C.
    ...
    “I can tell you I’m ashamed and embarrassed right now,” one soldier told Fox.

    “We had a lot of disappointed kiddos because of the National Guard being unwilling to allow a Humvee and a few soldiers to spend an hour at a Baptist church,” another soldier said. “It makes me wonder what I’m actually fighting for.”
    Boy it sure is great Christians became so tolerant of opposing viewpoints.

      Strange, I thought I posted a request to fix the title.

          We were told it was against military policy
          By whom, I wonder? Shouldn't the title read "JAG, State, and other liberal infiltrators force National Guard troops to hunker down like robots against their consciences?

          Never collectivize when it comes time to assign blame. Keep asking questions till you find the errand boy who ordered it for the grocery clerks in question (PROTIP: journalists are probably not going to do this job for you at the moment.)

            One obvious problem is the Baptist Church theme “God’s Rescue Squad”. Any secular organization paid from public funds would be very stupid to endorse that sentiment even accidentally.

              No it wouldn't.

                Of course, since they still participated in the poz parade it doesn't seem to have been uniformly enforced. Imagine that.

                  I'm just surprised you neglected to tag this post with "Fred Phelps was right."
