Bibles Yanked From Military Exchange Store Shelves

The Department of Defense has removed all military edition Bibles from shelves of military exchange stores. They were told the Bibles were unconstitutional, and there were 200-thousand plaintiffs preparing a massive class action lawsuit if it wasn't yanked. The trouble wasn't with the written word, it was with how it was covered. The Bibles were emblazened with Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force emblems on their covers, to make soldiers more comfortable. The Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty says they removed the emblems and replaced them with generic insignias and got plain copies back into the military exchange stores for our soldiers.
