US Rep. John Culberson (R-TX) has taken a personal crusade against the Obama administration to the next level, having alleged that the government is preventing military funerals from mentioning the word "God."
"A Texas lawmaker is calling for a Congressional investigation of the Houston National Cemetery after he went undercover and determined that cemetery officials are still preventing Christian prayers at the funerals of military veterans.
"'The Obama administration continues to try to prevent the word "God" from being used at the funerals of our heroes,” said. Rep. John Culberson (R-TX). 'It’s unacceptable and I’m going to put a stop to it as fast as humanly possible.'
"Culberson told Fox News Radio he attended a burial service at the cemetery under cover on July 8 where he said volunteer members of the honor guard from the Veterans of Foreign Wars were prohibited from using any references to God."
That's super creepy. Some dude is sneaking into military funerals and then politicizing them? Uh, doesn't he realize he sounds completely and utterly batshit crazy?
His allegation lacks, unfortunately, any basis in fact whatsoever. While it is true that some military funerals do not mention God, that is because that's the family's wish. After all, not every soldier is Christian or even religious. What, does Culberson want to mandate Christian services for military personnel?
Motherfucker needs to stop sneaking into people's funerals and leave their final arrangements alone.
