I nearly destroyed my television set. Right now, I want to destroy a television network. Fuck everything about this.
Watch this report about Barbara Morris’ church-driven memorial to the troops.
[UPDATE: Channel 14 did the right thing and re-edited the story without this cross, and the reporter apologized. Barbara promised to remove Pat’s cross from future displays. No word on whether she’ll check the religious preference of the rest of the heroes she’s honoring, or why she included Pat Tillman – who wasn’t stationed at Fort Bragg.]
Cornerstone United Methodist Church not only got Pat Tillman’s rank wrong, but they put his fucking name on a fucking cross. But then some asshole at Channel 14 recognized Pat Tillman’s name, and did an extreme closeup (seen above).
CALL THEM NOW – 919 882 4040. Demand an apology and the footage removed.
I had trouble getting in touch with anyone from Cornerstone United Methodist Church. Perhaps you will have better luck – their contact information is available.
FYI: there are politicians out there trying to make christian prayer an official part of every military funeral for veterans from my home state – Texas.
I haven’t been this angry in a very long time. If I die – don’t let this happen to me. Use any non-violent means necessary to prevent this. Spread this message any and every way possible NOW.
