Please remember that America is not a Democracy. The United States of America was founded as a Constitutional Republic and that is what we need to get back to.

Please remember that America is not a Democracy. The United States of America was founded as a Constitutional Republic and that is what we need to get back to.
In a Democracy the majority rules. In a Democracy the people vote for those they feel will give them the most rights and freedoms allowed by the government. Democracy “allows” eligible citizens to participate either directly or through elected representatives. Our Forefathers were well aware that throughout history every Democracy has eventually failed. So they gave us a Constitutional Republic instead.
A Constitutional Republic is a state where the officials are elected as representatives of the people, and must govern according to existing Constitutional Law that limits the government's power over citizens. In a Constitutional Republic the people vote for those they believe will protect and defend the rights given to them by God and their Constitution.

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...

How many teenage pregnancies because being a virgin is considered uncool? Divorces. cheating, drinking, stealing, etc. Need I go on?

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.

The fool hath said there is no God! I find it so ridiculious that when people are in trouble they cry out "God help me". Amazing isn't it that this country was a wonderful, flourishing land when God was in control-you don't have to believe in our God, just leave ours alone. Jesus Christ is Lord now and will be forever!

God bless you Linda....I believe the same way. Put God back at the head of the American family... government...schools... and any other office of authority. " God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble...." Psalm 46: 1

This country is founded on the freedoms. Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom for the pursuit of happiness, etc. Most of the laws came out of the Bible, God's Word-God's instructional book. He loves us so much that he made these laws (Ten Commandments) to save us a lot of grief in our lives. He promised to give us the desires of heart. God knows our every thought and motive and he just wants us to love Him and make Him the one and only that we worship and praise. He made us...

He loves us so much that he made these laws (Ten Commandments) to save us a lot of grief in our lives. He promised to give us the desires of heart. God knows our every thought and motive and he just wants us to love Him and make Him the one and only that we worship and praise. He made us to converse with him and talk to us and when we are in trouble or confused and our friends all leave us, He promises never to leave or forsake us. He sent his son, Jesus, to die on a cross, to take our place for all our sins and die so that we don't have to die and that we can have eternal life. He is in Heaven right now preparing a place for us. If you just read the Bible with an open heart, you will realize how much he loves us. He even loves all these people that are against us and want to take our beliefs out of the public eye. I think they are afraid of him and do not see his love for us.

Charles Kevlin = Saying a prayer or reading a scripture at a funeral is NOT forcing anything on you or any one else. If you find it objectionable then leave or just don't go at all! Why is it that if Dems don't like something it has to be banned. If conservatives don't like something, we just dont go or listen....... But like the other lady, I will pray for your soul.
