VA Censoring Funeral prayers

Heard this on the Radio this morning. Apparently the VA has started telling Pastors that they can't use the Word 'God' or 'Jesus' in any prayers. It's Bull crap. Plain and Simple.

Sounds like it is the cemetery asking for the VA to do this. Article states it is at one cemetery in Houston, not everywhere.

Still sucks if your loved one is being buried there.

It's the VA. I can't find the article though.

Here's the radio show when they talked about it. I'm not a big fan of the radio show but it's on in the middle of the day so I occasionally listen to it in my truck. Jay Sekulow live.

I'm trying to find an article other then that.

And thier website is ACLJ.org. They are kind of the opposition to the ACLU. LIke I said, he bugs me a bit. Making a big deal out of stuff that is important but acting like it's the end of the world. You should have heard the guy during the Mosque thing. I just think it's crap. Even if it just one cemetery.

Edit: Found another article

Just another attempt to remove God from society.
