Congressman Collins statement on the removal of the Bible

from “Missing Man Table” at Ohio VA clinic

WASHINGTON—Today, Congressman Doug Collins (R-Ga.) issued the following statement in response to the news that the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) coerced an Ohio VA clinic into removing a Bible from their “Missing Man Table” display, set up by volunteers at the clinic in honor of service members who were Prisoners of War/Missing in Action:

“As a Chaplain in the Air Force Reserve, I am appalled to see that an Ohio VA clinic caved to the now familiar antics of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. This organization has devoted itself to attacking Christians and undermining the religious freedoms guaranteed to our men and women in uniform by the Constitution. That Mikey Weinstein and his organization would call for a Bible to be removed from a POW display is not surprising, but it is another indication that this organization is blind to our country's founding principles. I call on the Akron VA clinic to immediately replace the Bible and Bible verse to the display.I will not stand by while the MRFF fights a misguided battle to erase religious values from public view.”
