VA Officials Remove Bibles from POW/MIA Displays After Request to Include “The God Delusion”

In late February, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation reported that there was a POW/MIA memorial table at a VA clinic in Akron, Ohio that included a Bible. While the 11 MRFF members who raised the issue obviously had no problem honoring soldiers who were prisoners of war or missing in action, they didn’t understand why the government was promoting Christianity in the process.

It’s not like casualties of war are always Christian. This was just another way of perpetuating the false notion that there are no atheists in foxholes.

MRFF President Mikey Weinstein contacted the clinic on his clients’ behalf and was soon told the Bible was no longer part of the display.

Please Support the Work I Do Through This Site

Over the past couple of years, what began as a personal blog has turned into a hub with several contributors and multiple posts per day. As always, I’d like to continue expanding the reach of this site. That entails bringing on additional contributors with different voices, including more guest posts from people who can offer interesting and different perspectives, creating more YouTube videos, and making the podcasts sound more professional.

In order to facilitate all of this, I’ve created a page at Patreon. (You can now see on that page a list of things I’ve been able to do thanks to your contributions.)
