Houston VA Forbids Prayer at Veterans' Funerals!

   

Friend,

Can you believe it?

"They've told the VFW and the American Legion that they cannot have prayer during the burial services of our veterans, unless the family requests it in writing and submits the prayer for pre-approval." — Liberty Institute General Counsel, Jeff Mateer

This will not be tolerated!

The VFW has joined with other patriotic veterans’ groups and the Liberty Institute to file suit against the VA and the Director of Houston National Cemetery for Religious Hostility. Read the full story.

VFW needs you to get the facts and then take action to let the Department of Veterans Affairs and its Director of the Houston National Cemetery, Arleen Ocasio, know we won’t stand for their disrespectful and intrusive actions!

We need you to:

1. Watch this video to learn what’s at stake.

2. Listen to VFW’s Jerry Newberry break down the facts with leaders from the Liberty Institute and incoming District 4 Commander, Inge Conley.

3. Sign the Liberty Institute’s petition to protest this outrage.

Please forward this email and spread the word on Facebook and your entire social network! We need as many patriots as possible to join us in this battle. Thank you.

 

“Generations of patriotic Americans have fought, bled and died to help defend the U.S. Constitution—that great document provides and guarantees fundamental rights of religious expression and freedom of speech. Those basic tenets are clearly being violated at the cemetery and that simply cannot be tolerated."

— Richard L. Eubank, VFW National Commander
