This Country is Doomed
This is totally crazy. I can’t believe that this once great country has sunk so low.
It cropped up in Texas but it apparently reflects the policy set by the Veteran’s Administration.
A school teacher thought it would be a good thing for her students to make Christmas cards for veterans in the VA hospital. The vets would appreciate them and it would be a good lesson for the kids. The plan was to hand deliver them. The VA nixed the idea.
An official with the VA later clarified the policy, which is in the Veterans Health Administration handbook, by stating the following:
“In order to be respectful of our Veterans religious beliefs, all donated holiday cards are reviewed by a multi-disciplinary team of staff led by Chaplaincy services and determined if they are appropriate (non-religious) to freely distribute to patients. After the review is complete, the holiday cards that reference religious and/or secular tones are then distributed by Chaplaincy Service on a one-on-one basis if the patient agrees to the religious reference in the holiday card donation. The holiday cards that do not contain religious and/or secular tones are distributed freely to patients across the Health Care System. We regret this process was not fully explained to this group and apologize for any misunderstanding.”

Why would the Veteran’s Administration do something as insidious as this? There was a time when people, especially children, were encouraged to do things that would make people feel better. That was especially so with our military heroes. No longer.
This is outrageous.
