Persecution: The Air Force Just Banned The Bible In This Memorial

No Honor Allowed for POW/MIA Display

The Missing Man Table is a semi-official place of honor in some dining facilities of the U.S. armed forces in memory of fallen, missing, or imprisoned military service-members. The table serves as the focal point of ceremonial remembrance, originally growing out of US concern for the Vietnam War POW/MIA issue.

The display consists of a small table with a white table cloth, an inverted glass, a plate with a lemon and salt, a single rose, and a yellow ribbon. To a few, the most offensive part of the display is the Bible.

Patrick Air Force Base

The missing man table had been a prominent fixture in the dining facility for years until last week, when the commanders decided that the presence of the Bible was too controversial and had it removed. Base officials informed Fox News’s Todd Starnes that the display was removed because of the Bible. The Holy Bible was seen as a distraction to the purpose of honoring POWs/MIAs. They felt it was proper to replace the place of honor and remembrance with a POW/MIA flag.

When the base leadership received some negative press and pressure, the commanders relented: “After consultation with several relevant organizations, we now intend to re-introduce the POW/MIA table in a manner inclusive of all POWs/MIAs as well as Americans everywhere.”  All that gibberish means they are not going to include the Bible.

Air Force leading the way

While addressing the House Armed Services committee, Air Force Chief of staff Gen. Mark Welsh insisted that there was no war on religious liberty on the service. He complained that “the single biggest frustration I’ve had in this job is the perception that somehow there is religious persecution inside the United States Air Force.” Oh really! Representative John Fleming (R-La.) told Todd Starnes that the “Air Force seems to be the worst offender when it comes to attacks on religious liberty.”

Gen. Welsh is working hard to be Obama’s next choice for Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Good General failed to remember what happened to General Merrill McPeak.

  1. Put the Bible back where it belongs, it was there for many years way before these un-Godly people were even born. I wish these people in the AF base leadership stop kissing Obozo's behind, Good men died and shed their blood for our liberties and freedom of religion and these atheist un-Godly people are taking that away from Christians in the Military who still believe in God's Holy Book.

    Dr. Peter Hammond breaks down Muslims %s in various countries, his research shows that:
    1 When a country has 1.8% and fewer Muslims, they behave and get the media to characterize them as a “Religion of Peace.”
    2 When a country has between 2 and 5%, they will start to reach into disaffected groups and recruit criminals in government.
    3 When a country has at least 10% of a population, Muslims will start demanding things like Muslim food preparation regulations being established and Sharia law to rule themselves. Countries like France, Sweden, and Switzerland are experiencing these demands now.
    4 When a country has up to 15%, muslims start riots to demand special treatment from their host country.
    5 When a country has reached 20%, they start to kill people and burn Christian churches and Jewish synagogues. They will kill dogs as well.
    6 After a country’s Muslim population reaches 40%, that country is effectively dead. Bosnia, Chad, and Lebanon are prime examples. These countries experience widespread massacres, endless terror attacks, and a constant state of war.
    7 Life in countries with Muslim populations above 40%, such as Albania (70%), Malayia (77.5%), and on up to Afghanistan–which is 100% Muslim–is hell on earth. The radical Muslims who run these countries hate, and want to murder, anyone who is not a radical Muslim, non radical muslims do nothing to stop the chaos, this proves that all islamists are nothing more than murdering animals. Merely being a non radical Muslim is not enough to ward off these demons that see themselves as Allah’s emissaries commissioned to bring about the fiery end of the world. America is not now in an irreversible position regarding our Muslim population, but our built-in protections for minorities and minority ideas could be our Achilles Heel. The faster islam is wiped off this earth, the better for all human society. THIS “RELIGION OF PEACE” IS JUST GARBAGE!!)
    Is it a good thing to be afflicted with Islamophobia? Get the new book from Walid Shoebat, The Case FOR ISLAMOPHOBIA: Jihad by the Word; America’s Final Warning.
