On this week’s edition of Washington Watch Weekly, Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS 1st ) joins FRC’s Tony Perkins to discuss the decision by the Department of Defense to withdraw its authorization for Bibles with military insignias.
Here are excerpts from Rep. Huelskamp’s interview:
The Department of Defense is more worried about the atheists than our real legitimate national security threats around this country
The separation of the military and government and [our Judeo-Christian heritage] will be a disaster… . It is just one of many attacks on faith coming out of this administration.
This does an incredible disservice to the men and women in the military… . It turns away something that can help men and women in the military.
Rep. Huelskamp also said that the ban comes at a time when extra spiritual help is needed to help deal with the high suicide rates in the military and the service members need our support.
