Anti-Graham Group, Military Religious Freedom Foundation, Wants Symbol Removed From Army Hospital

Because it will embolden our enemies by making them think Christians are waging a war on Islam WTF?

The group managed to get the Army to dis-invite Evangelist Graham from the National Day of Prayer. I suppose they feel very emboldened now. Assmaggots
DENVER — A religious watchdog group says a cross and religious motto on the emblem of an Army hospital in Colorado violate the constitutional requirement for separation of church and state and should be removed.

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation asked the Army this week to change the emblem of Evans Army Community Hospital at Fort Carson, outside Colorado Springs.

The emblem says “Pro deo et humanitate” or “For God and humanity.”

Wollman said the cross, which has a pointed base, is both an emblem of mercy and a symbol dating to the Middle Ages, when pilgrims carried a cross with a spiked base to mark the site of a camp.

Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said that’s a reference to the Crusades and could embolden U.S. enemies who want to portray the war on terror as a Christian war on Islam.
Those sploding themselves, killing ours and coalition soldiers, killing other Muslims sure as hell are radical Muslims.

Screw them.
