Separation of church and state? Controversial?
You the devoted reader to the blog decide this for yourself.
"Lawsuit calls for POW Bible to be removed from VA hospital display"
"Manchester, N.H., May 8, 2019 / 08:00 pm (CNA).- A Bible once carried by a World War II prisoner of war is the center of a legal fight at a veterans’ medical center in New Hampshire."
Display in question at seen at the Manchester Veterans’ Administration Medical Center. Bible under glass at the center of the controversy. Demonstrates a favoritism of one religion over another?
"The Bible was part of a 'Missing Man' table display, honoring prisoners of war and missing soldiers, placed at the entrance of the Manchester Veterans’ Administration Medical Center. The bible was donated to the medical center by a 95 year old veteran and former POW to whom it belonged. The veteran had the Bible while he was a prisoner of war."
Yet one more "missing man" display to include a Holy Bible. As seen in the galley of the retired aircraft carrier USS Lexington moored as a museum, Corpus Christi, Texas, USA. A dinner table setting for Thanksgiving traditional and customary. In memory of those military men who did not "make it".
No disrespect or favoritism was meant and none should be taken. And shame on those that take offense foolishly so.
