ACLU vs. US Marines

ACLU vs. US Marines

THIS NEEDS TO GO AROUND THE USA MANY TIMES SO KEEP IT GOING

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 Corps said (cleaned up a bit),

"Screw the ACLU." GOD Bless Our Warriors.

Send the ACLU to France!

They are, of course, all about the 1st amendment. So they are not going to stop talking. But I believe the best thing to do is let them dig holes. When they start talking about the rights of junior high students to be gay, this just alienates more middle-road Americans. They once restricted their activities to defending the rights of free speech, but extending their own mandate has lost them members, support, and influence. The more they talk, the more people roll their eyes and marginalize what they are saying. I love the Col's reaction! That's great!

this not right what they say. it not mean that most Honorable Marine Corps establish anything other than to establish that they are good and decent men and women who want, for one reason or nother, to our country and US Marines! ryo not say that aclu not have right to what they think. is free country neh and Marines go out and fight to keep country safe and ally and friend safe and yes, and victor chan know this is true too, to keep aclu safe too. these people have right to freedom of speech and freedom of expression because US Marine Corps is on the job neh! Marine should let aclu be, but aclu should let Marine Corps be too. and is very most serious matter. even so, aclu have right to say and think what they want. but only reason they have this right is because constitution is there to give to them and Marines and other service like Army and Navy and Air Force and Coast Guard and FBI and other group there to make sure they keep their rights. even so, what they say make ryo very much anger and this is ryo exercise his right to express self too. am most very grateful to group like US Marine Corps for what they do. am also very much grateful to good man like victor chan who is also US Marine. ryo stand up. put right hand over heart to give civilian salute to most very excellent US Marine, dear friend Victor chan! arigato goziemasu for your service to our country Sir!

Your friend,

LittleDragon

PS not one man or woman in this picture was given order to bow head and pray. they do because they citizen too who exercise their right to freedom of religion neh.

LD thank you

I know this country has free speech. Just makes me angry when a group like the ACLU tries to tell me, I have no right to pray. Who died and made them God, but how can this be when they are tring to preach to us that there is no God.

having been in the military and having been forced to attend services I did not wish to and having been punished because I would not declare myself a Catholic, Protestant, or Jew, I have some antipathy toward Group Think and being in a situation where I did not have religious freedom. Times have changed and so have I. Today I would not make it the issue I did then, and the military is much more flexible today than it was then as well. Nevertheless, when you are in a large group and everyone assumes you must bow your head, it is not a comfortable feeling for those who would rather not.

I also have been in the military.(severed in the pre-glock era) I was never force to pray, nor where any of my family and they have been serving since WWII and none of them where forced to choose any type of belief.
To bow youre head is a respect issue not a complaince issue. and at that time you have a choice, it is private thing. Why would they care unless someone made an issue of it.

I'm not attacking the poster of the article I'm expressing my view of the pic. as far as the ACLU they attack our constitution. And our rights as americans, to change it to meet their beliefs and there values for right or wrong.

schuyler san, wakatta

wakatta is simple nihongo word that mean, i get it. and really ryo does understand. it very difficult thing to be only one in group that not doing what rest of group doing. group think, wakatta. ryo is taught about same thing only is call, hive thinking in way in which little brother and self are taught neh. is like worker bee in hive. hive thinking can be powerful thing. can have powerful use, many use in fact. but can be most destructive thing too. if use proper it not kill will or idea of individuality neh. is something that is like rifle. is tool for certain use in certain type situation. but also, like rifle, it can kill. can be most very dangerous. is also like rifle in that should be use with care and aim correctly. rifle very dangerous thing, but is not bad thing. it depend on how is use neh.

your friend,

LittleDragon
PS ryo and schuyler san sometime disagree. sometime ryo feel schuyler san not take ryo serious or dismiss what ryo have to say out of hand because maybe think ryo is too young. people often mistake ryo both on internet and in life for to be person much younger that really is. ryo very small person. consider very small for age group. ryo 16 sai old come this thursday. ryo only five feet tall. and weigh only about 112 pound. it ryo way of speak and write that often confuse people about ryo real age and experience. ryo have difficult in language study and also in way speak as well as way right. perhap seem more childlike that is. but not make such mistake dozo. ryo have live for some sai in Israel and in the Philippines and also nihon, malaysia and singapore. although in these last three country for not so very long in each. in most case only few month, not sai like in Israel, live off and on for more than 4 sai and in Philippines for about 3 sai. not all at same time. was last in Philippines in 2005. was last in Israel in 2003, but have visit there several time since. younger brother ryu kun was born in Tel Aviv in Israel. ryo have seen many thing that most American boy or girl have never see. should ask greasypaws or charley9toe or victor chan or my pops, ironkoji on here about some thing here or there that ryo have see.

I don't bow my head

I have never been forced to attend a religious service in the military. Yes, the unit chaplain gives an invocation prior to military ceremonies, but that is tradition, just as it is tradition for a first sergeant to take the company guidon, give it to the outgoing commander, who gives it to the battalion commander, who gives it to the incoming commander, who returns it to the first sergeant in a company change of command ceremony. None of that is necessary, but the military relies heavily on tradition, and if the ACLU doesn't like it, too fucking bad. I refuse to bow to anyone, God included, and have never been reprimanded or admonished for it. I think the ACLU needs to spend more time fighting for the civil rights of the hunting dogs that PETA kills with poisoned meat in bird hunting areas. Just my thoughts.

I served in the U.S. Army in 1971&1972, I was the Chaplains asst. We had four Chaplains on our post, and four more on our sister post. Never once was anyone on post required to attend any service, nor was anyone compelled to pray or bow their heads. Chaplain asst. school was at Ft. Hamilton, in Brooklyn, N.Y. It was there as well as in Basic Training I learned we could not be compelled to attend church services. The ACLU, is doing everything in its' power to subvert this country and should be viewed as the enimy.
