THIS stunned me a little. The Army can’t send an Honor Guard to a church celebrating the Fourth of July anymore. Forbidden now, in a ceremony they’ve participated in for twenty years. If that’s the case, since the Fourth of July is a government celebration, should it even be allowed to be celebrated in a church? Think about it….
As the article says, the Army CAN march in a gay parade, but not stand at attention, with our flags, in a church celebrating what they call “God and Country.”
Of course, these days, everything is so upside down that, if we allow the soldiers in a church on duty, they’d have to be sent to a mosque, too. Not that any mosque would want an American color guard, I guess……….
This situation is packed with nuance…….Obviously, we don’t believe in State IN Church or Church IN State, but….this rang weird to me. Weird, also, that they could for 20 years, but now can’t.
How do you feel about this? Please read the short article (same link as above) for nuance that might help you in your decision making/comment. Thanks.
