The crosses should not be removed. This country was founded on God and the military defends this country. Military Christian chaplins wear the cross on their lapels to identify them as such. Military chapels have always displayed the cross. Soldiers far from home and in harms way need and pray to God. Prayer is big before deployments and during them. God is comfort to our Soldiers. If the nonbelievers and the atheists don't want the crosses, tough luck! Maybe they need God in their lives.

This article refers to the army regulations (although the link given doesn't work so I can not verify). According to the article (once again, unsubstantiated) it is against regulations to have any religious symbol permanently affixed to the structure. So (if the article is correct) they were in violation of army reg's having it in the first place. Perhaps if you have one of your old manuals you may be able to verify or debunk that claim. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1111/69039.html

The Christians are offended by Obama removing Christian crosses from military chapels or graves is a slap in the face of the Christian. We are offended by this disregard for what we believe.

Don't remove crosses -- just add everybody else's religious symbols. The First Amendment means that no religion shall be given special treatment; whatever is allowed or forbidden to any one of them must be equally allowed or forbidden to all of them, no exceptions.

I'm not sure it's possible to add *everybody* else's religious symbols; there are a lot of small subsects in there, and you run out of space. But I'd be willing to give it a try by saying that anyone who wanted their symbol included could submit a form with the symbol drawn on it, and it would be added to the wall of them or something.

It's just another place in our lives that the government has no right to interfere. Honestly, I could care less if I offend a Muslim or anyone from another religion! If someone died defending our country give the person his/her dignity and leave their grave as a personal space for the family and friends to visit. If they or their family choose to display a cross it is nobody's business. This is only one reason why our boarders should have been closed years ago. These people come here and...

These people come here and think they can make demands on us. Many of us have families that have lived, served, and paid taxes here for many years. How dare anybody think otherwise...we have to take a stand and draw the line somewhere to stop these self-serving, self-centered zealots! If they want to display a star of David or any other religious sign I don't see Christians stopping them...again, how dare they feel they have the right...especially our POTUS who has never proven he is a citizen with anything other than a fake birth certificate! This boils my blood.

Sooo, when the next president comes into office and we are attacked, what do you think goes on then? The military has to be built up again. And how does that happen? By spending tons of money.obama has wasted more money and put us in more of a deficit in 4 years than Bush did in 8. I guess ignorance is bliss considering you're such a dumbass! Oh, I doubt you were able to figure it out on your own, but the president who left us so vulnerable was Clinton. He knew the country was going to be hit and did nothing. Can you say USS Cole? Can you? I truly think stupid people should not be allowed to live. I say this because they make life so much harder for everyone else. That cannot be disputed.

Janet Clayton: it is a fact that more people are on gov't welfare. That has even been said by your liberal media. More people are receiving food stamps than ever before. If you are going to run for president, then you take your responsibilities as serious as you possibly can. You live, breathe, eat and shit our problems. Therefore, more could have been done in the four short years you mentioned than was actually done. If you can't do it and you know it, then stay off the damn ballot. Of course common sense eludes liberals.

If you are so blind that you can’t see that Obama want’s to BANKRUPT THE COUNTRY and take us down the path to Socialism then I truly feel sorry for you.

I personally would like to see my kids enjoy the same FREEDOMS that I HAD. I used the word had because I believe they are dwindling.

Last December on a cold winter day, I along with thousands Americans volunteered to lay wreaths on the graves of our fallen soldiers. There were several graves without crosses and we did not place wreaths on them. We respected their rights. If someone is offended by crosses on military installations, then am I to assume they are offended...

Christian Americans the Supreme Being is not a Christian. He is for all religion background. Also we do have the LBGT community and the Supreme Being also made them too.

I don’t support what Obama did to the Christians, because if he will do this to you, who else will he do it too? USA is not a Judeo/Christian nation it states that in the 1st Amendment “congress shall not make no laws respecting of a religion” meaning congress will not make any laws based on a religion and to many politicians believes we need to change this country into where religion people can judge others and the laws should be based on the Judeo/Christian religion. I am sorry this is not what this country was founded for. Anyways Jesus did say didn’t he? you are to pray in private and you are not suppose to judge others and that you are suppose to love your neighbor as thyself. Please follow Jesus words and please stop preaching to others. Your bible laws are for Christians only they are not for non Christians.

Peace to all
