‘God’ and ‘Jesus’ banned from US veterans’ funerals in Houston cemetery...

Using the names “God” and “Jesus” at veterans’ funerals has been banned in a cemetery in Houston, Texas, it has been revealed.

The decision prompted more than 1,000 demonstrators to converge on Houston National Cemetery on Independence Day to protest against the censorship of burial services.

And one veteran described the ban as “a slap in the face to every veteran who fought for our freedom.”


The suit accuses U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) officials and Houston National Cemetery director Arleen Ocasio of banning members of certain military groups from invoking the names “God” and “Jesus” at burials.

The lawsuit also claims the cemetery’s director said religious messages for funerals must be submitted to her for approval and that she rebranded the cemetery chapel a “meeting room”. Full story...
