America already is suffering because we have turned our eyes and ear away from the word of God. There is only for who died for us and that is the only Son of God, Jesus. I want to be in His favor.

This is a - well, an UNTRUTH. One family asked the VA at one cemetery not to bring religion into their loved one's funeral, but someone did it anyway. The family complained and the head guy instructed volunteers to mention god only if they knew the family's religious preference. PERIOD. But I suppose there is more to this silly petition than that, isn't there?

It's silly because it's meaningless and because it isn't freedom at all. The FAMILY of the deceased was exercising THEIR freedom NOT to participate in some enforced religious ceremony with which they clearly did not agree. Their freedom to honor their dead in a way consistent with their beliefs was ignored and suppressed. Don't be disingenuous. This is about religious people forcing their beliefs on others who do not share those beliefs. This petition basically honors the theocratic...

This petition basically honors the theocratic tradition of 'if you don't believe this crap, shut up or else.' I guess that's not really silly, is it? It's TYRANNICAL.

Our religious freedom was guaranteed in the Constitution! Why now, during Obama's watch, are our freedoms becoming fewer? Can't people see, he is not an American, and wants to take away our freedoms; so, he can be dictator? Thus the political correctness campaign by him and his anti-American followers!

The LACK of religion has already started the destruction of this world. You can see that happening already. How many millions of innocent babes have been murdered inside their mother's womb & we call it choice? How many children roam the streets and join gangs because there is no family structure at home? No father and mom working three jobs to make ends meet. How many children have been sexually abused by leaders, teachers, coaches, priests, next door neighbors, family members? How many...

I don't know what is going on here at this site. Most of the info posted here is not true. The VA is not, can not, will not ban the word god from military funerals. Where do you get your information? Also, the pentagon is not going to court marshall over christian faith. And for your info, bibles are still given out at boot camps in all branches of military service. Why do you want to start drama where there is none. But don't take my word on this. Call your local American Legion or...

They need a good laugh too! :-) I am no longer going to subscribe to this site. Its nothing but a hate site based on bad information. Bye!

Anybody really doubt we are experiencing a COMMUNIST COUP in America? We have no rights at all in America, not even the right of due process, and we might be killed simply on the president's signature without charge or warrant. Now, the military speaks of prosecuting chaplains for evangelism or sharing the Holy Bible. How much more can we take before we decide to LIVE FREE or DIE TRYING!

2007 policy that prohibits volunteer honor guards from reading recitations — including religious ones — in their funeral rituals, unless families specifically request them. The key words are "Volunteer" such as VFW and Am Legion and "unless the families request them. Active duty Honor Guards seldom speak at funerals. It really is about what the families want. If a family specifically says they do not want God mentioned, the volunteers should honor the request.
