What's Wrong With This Picture?

If you look closely at the picture above, you will note that all the Marines pictured are bowing their heads. That's because they're praying.

This incident took place at a recent ceremony honoring the birthday of the Corps, and it has the ACLU up in arms. "These are federal employees," says Lucius Traveler, a spokesman for the ACLU, "on federal property and on federal time. For them to pray is clearly an establishment of religion, and we must nip this in the bud immediately."

When asked about the ACLU's charges, Colonel Jack Fessender, speaking for the Commandant of the Marine Corps said (cleaned up a bit), "Screw the ACLU." GOD bless our warriors, send the ACLU to France.

What's wrong with the picture? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

Please pray for our soldiers:

"LORD, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need. I ask this in the name of Jesus, our LORD and Savior. Amen."
Of all the gifts you could give a Marine, GI, sailor, airman, and others deployed in harm's way....

...prayer is the very best one.
