Representative King was eloquent in denouncing this hateful policy. He said, "That [policy] means you can't bring in a Bible and read from it when you visit your son.... It means a priest that might be coming to visit someone on their death bed ... couldn't offer last Rites. This is the most outrageous affront."
The hospital then issued some stupid equivocations that made no sense and pretended to deny the policy. King said, "If there wasn't a policy, why is it being rescinded? There's no talking it away... The very existence of this, whether it's enforced or not, tells you what kind of a mindset is there." King said he's been alarmed at "a trend he's seen to scrub Christianity from the military-- most recently the decision to remove a cross from an Army chapel in northern Afghanistan.... We are seeing a shocking level of hostility towards religious faith, but beyond that -- we've also seen a militantly secular attitude of trying to sterilize the defence department of all references to faith." I'm glad we have some wonderful Congressmen like Steve King to speak out against Obama Administration outrages.
