NO WAY SHOULD THE CROSSES BE REMOVED! IF MR OBAMA WANTS NO CROSSES, TELL HIM TO MOVE TO ANOTHER COUNTRY. THIS COUNTRY IS ONE NATION UNDER GOD AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE.
This idea was introduced by a Republican, by the way!! Check the facts!!!
Obama will not move to another country to be with his buddies in Muslim land. This Manchurian Candidate is out to destroy everything America stands for, that's why the communists, socialists, ultra-liberals, nazis, fascists, pacifists, totalitatarians, Big Government, Globalists, etc chose him. Take your pick it is the same old pick!! I despise the people who voted for Obama more than I despise Obama. I can't wait for the 2016 election and get rid of Obama. His legacy is zilch, nada.

Kathy...I could care less what letter you put beside your name. This isn't about politics. This is a spiritual matter and should be judged on those merits." You can change the name of a rose but there ain't nothin' you can do about the smell"!
Kathy Mayo then he should be voted out, he must be an Obama k---a--! Get rid of him and send Obama with him.
Philip Tropea Well, I'm reading that he is planning on changing everything so he will run again and then there will be no more elections, he will be the DICTATOR!! I keep praying that it won't be true!!
Sorry buddy, you are wrong. I was there when the order came down and it was during Clinton's reign of terror. I was the one who had to go make the chapel on base neutral. Seems YOU need to check the facts and stop listening to Rachel Madcow.
Why don't you just cut to the chase and tell us who the Republican was Kathy.
Kathy Mayo Who cares? Republicans can be bought off if Democrats offer enough. Let me quote Hillary Clinton, "What does it matter?" If the Dems could care less about four American lives, why should a bought off Repub care about crosses?
Kathy Mayo , Please bring on the facts, I would be most interested seeing that myself. Why would any Republican be interested doing such a thing as that in the first place. I agree with Eddie Reynolds, he is absolutely right it's not about politics, it's a spirtual matter and should be judge by it's merits.
Philip Tropea , He's finished after this last term in office. Didn't anyone take heed and pay attention about the movie that was out during the election month... Obama's America 2012. Maybe you can rent the movie, this way you can see what the ordeal is truly about until the end of 2016.
the biggest Problem actually two of the biggest problems are 1. these Libtards try to make think that they are bigger than they really are, there was an old poster that was given to me when I was a teenager many moons ago, it read like this "If you can't befuddle them with brillance, baffle them with bullshit" and that Ladies and gentlemen is waht they are trying to do to the nation, and 2. we have all of these "immigrants" that come over to our country (which if fine I can understand that)...

The Communist population of Russia during the Bolshevik Revolution was far less than 10%. The reason we have our freedoms is because our forefathers had the gumption to stand up against tyraany. Most Americans do not even know that their freedoms are in greater peril from Obama than the Imperial Japanese Navy of 1941!
Jerry Levon Ogles, calm down. We have a black president. You are OK. And Larry Ingram - your folks were immigrants too. American isn't equivalent to Christian. Find something to do with your time.
At last someone with basic common sense.
You make me sick
we have never had a person come from another country an pretend to be born here, an start taking over our country, where the hell is our protection, men an women sign up to go fight for other countries, but won't stand up an fight for our own, I don't mean to disrespect any an all service men an women that have already fought an many died for us, I'm talking about now, HERE. i know i'm going to get a lot of flak from this,
What the freakin hell are you speaking about Julie?? Yes, America is equivalent to us CHRISTians!! 52 members, out of 55, that wrote the Constitution were active CHRISTian members of their CHRISTian chuches. The Constitution was based on the Living Word of God!!
Lori Stephens ... apart from the bits where they privatly wrote it wasn't,and guarenteed their allies it wasn't, and created an amendment to garentee freedom of RELIGION, not christianity. Your idea of the founding fathers is mostly innacurate.
WE MUST TAKE A STAND AGAINST THIS AND STOP THESE ANTI CHRISTIANS. LET OUR VOICES BE HEARD.
You voices are heard TOO OFTEN.
Dale Knipple Funny how it's the liberals always fucking whining and moaning about shit they don't like. I only hear Christian responses, not statements...your side whines too damned much and that's the problem. Why don't you all just shut the hell up and deal with your own problems instead of trying to make them everyone elses?
Dale Knipple What kind of a dopey remark is that?????
hey sherry, i see you have a vulger mouth, if you dont repent, GOD will get you for what you have put on here, a true CHRISTIAN will never shup up, do you know why? because jesus told us to go out into the whole world, and to preach the GOSPEL, and that is what we are going to do, till JESUS calls us home, [SO GET USED TO IT BUDDY, and i HOPE, AND PREY that you get to know him as your LORD, AND SAVIOR before it is too late.
dont profess to be a CHRISTIAN but I still say'HELL NO"-leave thing the way they are.Dont try to fix something thats not broke....
I'm sure Dale has never served his country, and it is quite easy to make nasty remarks online.
Crosses are seen all over Arlington National Cemetery. Will our government take them all away?
Dale Knipple may you wake to a army ranger standing over your bed
Dale Knipple if You don't lik eit go To another country WE don't care what You think
Dale, move to China! You won't last 2 days, so get out!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bill ONeill ha ha It is dopey.
No absolutely NOT. North American is 80% christian and christians build our two coutries and its our history.
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.
--Leslie <;)))>< Fish.
Well said, Leslie! Well Said.
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.
The original Zoroastrian Fire Wheel sat upright and pointed to the right. The Nazi swastika stood on its corner and pointed to the left. Small difference, yes, but noticeable.
Leave it to a Bard to have the right words. Go Leslie!
lets desecrate the the first amendment now.
WHAT!?!? Wow we have to stop this freak!!!!
I cant find a way to share this.
I think I shred in the step before this
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...

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 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.
Jeff Fite, Believe me... their not worth it, their nothening but loser's. Actually I can't wait until judgement day arrives, I only wish I could see them burning in hell and hearing them screaming.
James Taylor, You are sooooo RIGHT... I'll give that a second AMEN!!!
Laura Austin Hey Laura, please don't forget that it is God's will that none should perish, but that all should inherit the Kingdom of God. It makes the Lord unhappy when his creation turns from Him and they will suffer for eternity. He would rather they accept Him and His love and gifts. He would NOT rejoice in their writhing in hell.
I was in the military for 6 years. I was not a Christian then, but never complained about the chapels or chaplains. This is a country founded on Judo-Christian beliefs, but we have in our Bill of Rights a sentence that states we have the freedom of religion, and no atheist or muslim, or crazed with power President can take that away. We will stand up for our rights, Christians have the same rights as any other religion!
why would an atheist care if a chapel had a religious symbol or not? they would not be there.
why would a Muslim care if a chapel had a cross.
it is not a place of worship for them all they need is a direction to face.
It actually is. Chapels on military posts are used by every religious group on post for any need they may have as well as FRG meetings and solider briefings.
then removal should include all religious symbols of any faith.
I agree, and although I've never seen a Star of David or Pentacle, or any other religious symbol on any military building (aside from a cross), if I did I would be concerned about how other people feel walking into those spaces.
This doesn't really make sense to me. As a military BRAT of an Air Force chaplain I am well aware that religious neutral symbols are displayed at all times in the chapels except for when a specific religious service is in progress. E.g. Christian and Catholic crosses are hidden behind a partition curtain unless a Protestant or Catholic service is in progress. So, what exactly is the problem with having crosses in the chapels? They are usually not on full display anyway, or at least according to military regulations they are not supposed to be.
Maybe people are not obeying the regulations?
Or there could have been an incident with a group of 'Christians' being mean to the other religions.
I believe that the crosses should remain in the chapels. Obama once again tries to downplay christian symbols. It makes me believe more and more that he really is a muslim man. All he really is accomplishing is angering the very people he should be working with in Congress and alienating conservative christian community. He should be working with all sides to come up with a solution to the problem but he usually reacts instead of compromising.
