Obama Denies Flyover During Military Rally
I received this video the other day and I could not believe what I was watching... what I was hearing... President Obama denied a flyby during the 'God & Country Rally on July 7, 2009. This is the first time in 42 years a flyby was denied... Why you may ask.. Because of its Christian Nature.... Huh? Double Huh?
This is a rally that honors our military... This is a rally that honors the lives of the men and women who gave each and everyone of us the Freedom we enjoy today..... There were thousands of people attending this Military rally - Seventy (70) recruits were sworn in to fight for our country.. The attendees were looking forward to the flyby - it has been a tradition for 42 years...
The Official Pentagon Response was this:
"Air Force and DoD policy prohibit support for events which appear to endorse, selectively benefit, or favor any special interest group, religious or ideological movement." Again I must say "huh?" This is not a "religious" event - it's a "honoring event"..
What has changed to make this honorary event against Pentagon policy? A new President who at every opportunity denies anything religious.. Anything to do with Jesus.... With God... With Faith... Recently, President Obama was giving a speech at Georgetown University - before he spoke he covered the cross on the stage and a sacred sign for Jesus.... Why?
Here we have a President that refused to participate in the National Day of Prayer - Refused to allow the Government to participate in it but he would embrace and hold a large party and reception at the White House to celebrate Gay Pride Month this past June.... Huh?
What is most upsetting to me is this - Our Commander and Chief - the "Big Guy" of our country - the "Head" of our Military..... refuses to honor them..... I just cannot wrap my mind around that.. can you?
