Bush Admin Bans Military Funeral Flag-Folding Ceremony

-- by Dave Johnson

The Bush Administration has banned the Memorial Honor Detail flag-folding ceremony because the following section:

In the eyes of a Hebrew citizen, represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon, and glorifies, in their eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Details at Words spoken in funeral flag-folding draw flap - Military Times.

Right-wingers are going nuts, some saying it's part of a government "War on God", but it's the Bush admin doing the banning ...

On this one I think the family's wishes should be honored.

I find something missing in the story. I am involved in veteran memorial services. The flag-folding is always a part of the service. However, the narrative is only done at the family's request.

So, who requested the narrative? And who complained?

Yes, the family's wishes should be honored, but they already are.

This is such an overreaction!
