Tell your congressional representatives to stand up to Panetta

Urge your elected officials to stop making excuses, take charge and aggressively put an end to President Obama and Panetta's domestic war against our faith.
June 19, 2012

There was a time in our history when military leaders were men…real men. They stood their ground against all enemies, foreign and domestic. That was until President Obama put Leon Panetta in charge of the Department of Defense. Now the nation's top military leader's uniform comes with a large yellow streak down its back.

According to OneNewsNow and other national reports, Bibles can no longer be emblazoned with the official insignia of the different branches of the U.S. military.

LifeWay Christian Resources spokesman Marty King says the military branches have revoked their prior authorization to use the official service emblems on the Soldier's Bible, Sailor's Bible, Marine's Bible and Airman's Bible. King says permission to use the insignia was granted in 2003.

That permission was withdrawn last year because the Military Religious Freedom Foundation threatened to sue if the military didn't cower to their demands.

The Bibles were sold at no cost to the government and service members voluntarily purchased them. At no point were military members coerced or encouraged by their superiors to buy the books. They were simply for sale in the military exchange stores.

TAKE ACTION

Your U.S. Representative and Senators need to step up and fight the war on religious freedom in the military. It's obviously clear Secretary Panetta doesn't have the stomach for it.

Urge them to quit making excuses, take charge, and aggressively put an end to President Obama and Panetta's domestic war against our faith.
