A Bible and Bible verse were removed from a POW/MIA display inside an Ohio Veteran’s Administration clinic after the notorious Military Religious Freedom Foundation complained.
The religious artifacts were part of a “Missing Man Table” recently erected by volunteers at an outpatient clinic in Akron.
MRFF founder Mikey Weinstein alleged the inclusion of the Bible was a violation of the U.S. Constitution. He said he intervened at the request of nearly a dozen, mostly Christian, military veterans who utilize the clinic.
However, clinic administrator Brian Reinhart said to his knowledge no one ever complained.
In other words, Mr. Weinstein’s allegations are a bit dubious.
Nevertheless, Reinhart relented and evicted God’s Word from the display.
“I just wanted to let you know that the Bible has been removed from our POW table and the Bible verse has been removed from the framed scripture,” Reinhart wrote in an email to Weinstein.
To say that Weinstein was giddy over the desecration of such a moving tribute would be an understatement.
