Arleen Ocasio(D) censors religion at VA Cemetary

Arleen Ocasio(D) censors religion at VA Cemetary in Houston Texas
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The fragment
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
...clearly is intended to protect religious liberty both by virtue of preventing law that would "prohibiting the free exercise" as well as preventing the Government from establishing a preferred religion.

So it is pretty difficult to post this without collapsing into a stream of 4 letter expletives directed at this sick sack of dog shi'ite from Chicago, who works for the government, and has decided to ban religion at a VA cemetary.
1) Director Ocasio and other Cemetery Officials instructed Veterans of Foreign Wars District 4 to remove prayers from its burial rituals and to no longer utter remarks when handling the discharged shell cases from the rifle salute to the family of deceased veterans.

2) Cemetery Officials instructed American Legion Post 586 to remove prayers from its burial rituals.

3) Director Ocasio told the National Memorial Ladies that it could no longer include “God Bless” in its condolence cards or speak a religious message to veterans’ families.

4) Director Ocascio shut down the Cemetery chapel; it is now a “meeting facility.”
Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) on Wednesday, June 29, sent a letter to the Department of Veterans Affairs
“I am deeply troubled by the allegations that were brought to my attention when I met with members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) in Houston,” said Poe. The director of the Houston National Cemetery, Arleen Ocasio, allegedly has engaged in aggressive hostile censorship of religion at the second largest cemetery for veterans in the United States.

“The First Amendment is a sacred right of all Americans, especially those who have honorably served — and given their lives — in the name of protecting the United States. Denying their families their constitutional right to the free exercise of religious freedom is disgraceful and shows blatant disrespect for America’s veterans. If these allegations are true, I formally call for the termination of Arleen Ocasio as the director the Houston National Cemetery. This display of authoritarian behavior and religious discrimination should not be tolerated.”
Our servicemen and women risk their lives, often sacrifice their lives, to protect a country that has to indulge scumbuckets like Arleen Ocasio(D). It only makes their sacrifice all the more profound and the burden upon us all to respect them all the more important.

As a vet, I demand to know why that tramp, Arleen Ocasio, remains in a position of authority at the Houston National Cemetery after her repeated assaults on the sensibilities and beliefs of deceased vets and their families and their clergy persons? Who the hell does this trollop think she is???? And why are my taxes supporting such a harlot who belongs more in a ring of prostitutes as she has prostituted herself to imbecility?

I wholeheartedly support Congressman Poe's comments regarding Ms. Ocasio. It is unconsciounable that Ms. Ocasio, in her position of authority at the Houston National Cemetery would even contemplate this. If true, she should be removed from this position.

If this is true, send this witch to the Middle East and see how she likes it there. She needs to be relieved of her "authority" and run out of town on a rail if these allegations are true about her. As a veteran, but not a Texan, I find her offensive.

She'll get hers. Do not mess with veterans. They already survived hell, and lived to tell about it. A dictatorial bint in Houston isn't going to make them blink.

What an insane collection of vulgar comments. If this is a sample of the rights thinking i know why this happened, if it did. Someone complain about a Muslim service and the use of Allah and Muhammed, etc.
Religious zealots are among the most dangerous people there are. They would sacrifice all of America in their mindless defense of their Bible or Quran.

"Religious zealots are among the most dangerous people there are." You are free today because of these "religious zealots." They aren't protesting this idiot's religion - they're protesting her trying to dictate theirs. Get a passport, go to the M/E and stay there. And, while you're there, try to buy a copy of the Constitution and read it on your daily serenity walk. But, don't come back.

I find it interesting - No, compellingly curious why she,Janet Napolitano, and Rachel Maddow all resemble each other. In fact, they look like they're attempting to resemble men. Can't figure out why. Oh, I know! This shared resemblance will help them go further in the Leader's "Govt". ALL HAIL OBAMA! (Please excuse me while I puke....)

May God bless and keep her because only he can save her now. And when time comes she gets to answer to Him and all the Veterans she's done wrong.
