What's Wrong With This Picture?

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

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."

We need to make people aware of this so they can know how ridiculous the ACLU is for trying to remove GOD from everything and every place in America.

May God Bless America...One Nation Under GOD!

What's wrong with the picture?


  1. Okay, this is infuriating. I love the Colonel's response but seriously, can't the ACLU find something better to do. They are not Federal employees. They are soldiers. I have two children in the military and what the heck are they fighting for.... oh yeah the right for the ACLU to infringe upon their right to pray. Seriously?

    Now that you have my blood boiling, I need a diet coke to calm down.

    Thank you for sharing.

  2. Nothing is wrong with the picture it is the ACLU that has the problem!!! Pray On!!!

    Thank you for sharing.
    God is so Good!

  3. This picture makes me smile! The ACLU won't be happy until they are running this country....so sad!!

  4. It is absolutely crazy the way the ACLU acts. God bless the troops and I hope they keep on praying!
    Hugs, Rhondi

  5. I be for throwing a few ACLU lawyers on the battle field - hmmm...wonder if they would be seeking a little help from on high?

    I'm with Debbie- pray on!:)

    Thanks for sharing this, Lois. We need to keep the ACLU's agenda in the light so it can be defeated.

  6. Hi Lois! This makes me so angry! We have to keep reminding ourselves... GOD IS IN CONTROL! These heros are fighting for our country and they need to pray and be close to the Lord. This is still a great country founded on God. God bless our troops!! Want you to know I am praying for your family! Have a great day!

  7. Praise the Lord. I love htis picture and I am very proud of our men. They know where their help comes from.

  8. Wow, that was so good... and SO TRUE! thanks for sharing.

  9. Hi Lois,
    I agree totally,There is nothing wrong with this picture, I am so proud of the Colonel for responding to the ACLU, and I am proud of you for bringing this to our attention. That is one great looking group of guys, I am so proud of our Military, I guess once it gets in your blood it is there forever.
    Thank you for sharing, I will get the seed in the mail before the week is out .

  10. This is one of the things that truly saddens me about the school system here in the UK Lois, in order to be 'neutral' and 'all-inclusive' religious assembly and daily prayers are rare, and traditional 'religious studies' are replaced with 'social studies, or morals and ethics.' It seems that it is something happening everywhere.

  11. Amen to that! Enjoyed browsing your blog!
    I'm from PA - What part of PA are you from by chance?

  12. I have yet to understand how the simple, private peaceful act of offering a pray is so offensive to someone. America has to always find something to be outraged over. It's a little old. I don't think it would be wise for anyone to mess with a Marine.

    People need to be less bigoted and find some class.

    Thanks for stopping by today. I enjoyed hearing from you. God bless you. ((((big hug)))) I did very well with Marthary experiement today. i timed myself. 20 minutes of Marth and 20 minutes of Mary. So much got done. I got a lot of pictures hung up and the pots and pans cabinet cleaned out and sorted nicely. Now if it will just stay that way!!

  13. I found your blog via a comment you left on another! :)
    My family lives in Wilkes-Barre - so that's not too far away!

  14. What ever happened to 'God Bless America' and 'In God we Trust'? The ACLU needs to step back. I don't think they have a right to tell our marines anything. I am not going to tolerate any one trying to take away my right to pray or anyone elses. I am sending a big salute, a prayer, and a hug to our marines ♥

  15. I am spitting nickles here! That is insane. Don't even get me started. Thanks for posting this so people can see how insane the ACLU is. God bless our military and keep them safe.

    (Now... I think I'll spend a little time looking around your blog a bit!!!)

  17. This just gets me so worked up. It is no wonder our nation is in such a mess...and I love my country, don't get me wrong. This is just like the Miss USA contestant being slammed for giving her honest answer re: Gay marriage. We need to wake up and make a stand, don't we?


  18. Amen sister. God is who has brought so many of our soldiers home safe.
    They would lock me up before they stop me.

  19. I love this! Beautiful to see those who sacrifice their lives praying to the one who was also sacrificed. Shame on the ACLU for taking that God given right away!

  20. The ACLU should be ashamed...

    God Bless America...Land that I love...


  21. What a beautiful picture! It is a blessing to have soldiers who have the moral courage to do what is right and honourable.


  22. Don't believe the lies of Snopes and the rest of the liberal media. I am real and I am running for President. FACT.
