MILITARY PULLS ITS INSIGNIAS FROM BIBLES

In 2003, B&H Publishing, a division of LifeWay Christian Resources, was given authorization to use the official seals of the U.S. military branches on a line of Bibles.

WND has reported: The Pentagon has revoked permission for a Christian ministry to produce Bibles for different branches of the military, marked with those insignias, after an anti-Christian group called them a threat to national security.

No government funds were used in the production of the Bibles, which contained devotional material unique to each service branch in much the same way they are tailored to other groups such as teens or children.

Nowhere in the Bibles did they state that they were endorsed by any government entity or military branch.

Despite this, last year the Military Religious Freedom Foundation sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta demanding the military rescind its authorization to use the service emblems, saying it was a violation of church and state separation.

The request by the group was subsequently granted.

“DoD regularly allows vendors to use branch insignia for other books, for paintings and other items,” the group said.

“From General George Washington until today, military personnel have taken counsel, received comfort, and been encouraged by biblical texts,” said Col. Ron Crews, executive director for the Chaplain Alliance. “These Bibles cost the Department of Defense nothing, and their presence is legally legitimate; therefore, no reason exists for the DoD to retreat in the face of the small anti-religious group that demanded removal of the Bibles.”

The group said the decision is another attempt by the DoD to create a “religion free” zone in the military and is calling on Congress to investigate the issue.

    This is yet another sad day in America, when minority beliefs are allowed to rule.

    You said it, Mark! That’s because Satan is still working his black magic… and he will continue to do so until the end. It’s all in the Bible… And I sincerely pray that these non-believers open their eyes before it’s too late!!!
