Well, we know who should be pulling full duty on Christmas
(Fox News) The commander of the Guantanamo Bay naval base decided Wednesday to move Nativity scenes from two dining halls following complaints that the decorations improperly promoted Christianity.
Both Nativity scenes will be moved to the courtyard of the base chapel, said Kelly Wirfel, a spokeswoman for Capt. John Nettleton, commander of the base in southeastern Cuba.
The displays were set up by foreign contractors who manage the two dining facilities and were “not intended to endorse any religion,” Wirfel said in response to concerns raised by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.
Showing religion on government grounds (remember, government grounds are owned by We The People) is not an endorsement per the 1st Amendment. But, Scrooges want to be Scrooges. 18 troops anonymously complained to the MRFF, and supposedly
Eleven of those who complained are Protestant or Roman Catholic and the rest are Muslim, Jewish, agnostic or atheist, he said.
Most likely those “eleven” were brought up as Protestant and Catholic, and have switched to atheism, though they do not want to say it. Now, will these 18 whiners who want to screw it up for everyone else as they think only of themselves be skipping the special Christmas day meal, along with all the extras, presents, and everything that goes with the Christmas celebration? Who wants to bet the answer is “no”?
The senders (of the email to the MRFF) said they put up with a great deal of hardship in their jobs, including having bodily fluids hurled at them by prisoners, and should not be made uncomfortable on their time off.
Oh, no, made to feel “uncomfortable”. How horrible for them. So, again, they ruin it for everyone else.
