OPINION: Leave POW remembrance tables alone

April 17, 2018

Last week, our law firm, First Liberty Institute, filed a lawsuit on behalf U.S. Air Force veteran Oscar Rodriguez. He was assaulted and forcibly removed from a fellow airman’s retirement ceremony by Air Force officials because his flag-folding speech contained the word “God.”

In response, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, a small, but vocal anti-religious liberty outfit, complained, “Allowing Rodriguez to yell like a fundamentalist Christian hurricane is the antithesis of good order and discipline.”

But the foul wind blows from the MRFF’s own cyclone. It recently complained to the U.S. Navy about a Bible and a “One Nation under God” placard placed on a POW/MIA table at the U.S. Naval Hospital in Okinawa, Japan.
