Navy Removes Nativity Displays From Guantanamo Bay After Troops Complain

The U.S. Navy announced Wednesday that it will remove two nativity displays from dining halls at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base after some troops complained the displays were exclusively Christian.

Capt. J.R. Nettleton, commanding officer for the Naval Station at Guantanamo Bay, said on Wednesday that he had decided to move the two nativity scenes from the base's dining halls to the courtyard of the base's chapel. Nettleton's decision comes after a day-long controversy when 18 service members at the base sent an email to the Military Religious Freedom Foundation regarding the nativity scenes.

"No one's ever complained to me about it. We've been doing it for 10 years," Nettleton told the Miami Herald, adding that he ultimately concluded the religious nature of the nativity scenes would be celebrated more appropriately in the base's chapel. ...

Good! Idols, likenesses, and images are not only unnecessary but strictly forbidden in the 2nd commandment for the worship of God and Christ. "Thou shalt not make unto thee ANY graven image or ANY LIKENESS...".

This was the position of the protestants, reformers, like Calvin, Knox, the Puritans of England and Pilgrims of America, who also did not bow the superstition of "Christmas" day, but in fact banned it and made it a "common market day".

Superstitious icons are a mark of false, not true, Christianity. Faith does not require sensual images or music to be active, for "faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the evidence of things NOT SEEN" (Heb. 11).

It's time to purge away the icons, manger scenes, decorated trees in Christian homes and churches, materialistic shopping greed, and light imagery--the Christianized paganism of the superstitious regard for Dec. 25th as being "Christ's birth" at the time of the pagan's festivals of the Winter Solstice (i.e. what the trees, decorations, lights, and gift giving really are a part of).

Christopher, there is a reason for that. look at the groups lobbying for these things and it becomes understandable.

Interesting these days how 18, or even 1 person can speak for thousands and millions. 18 can pull down a nativity scene, while 1000 others trying to retain it have no voice. One person can anonymously complain about "In God we trust" inscribed on a public square, while the 100's of thousands who want it to remain have no voice. An athiest high school girl sues for 100k for pain and suffering in a RI school because she was offended by a mural that mentioned God...she won, while the rest of the city's residents, along with a petition held no weight.
Talk about strength, and hatred even, when all it takes is a single person to take offense to Christ to enforce major change or be awarded piles of cash...

Since there was nothing displayed next to the nativities, I would consider the atheists' beliefs to be well represented. That just leaves Jews and muslims.....add a menora and a bomb, and all should be satisfied.

I wonder if athiest actually consider that their actions actually prove just how much they really do believe in God. After all if He truly doesn't exist why are they so hard at disproving His existence?

"after some troops complained the displays were exclusively Christian."

I wonder if these atheists would be happy if they knew that true Christians would be in agreement with them in the removal of the nativity icons.

As Mr Grey said "ignorance is bliss."

The atheist in his obsession to reject all things "religious" is actually in complete ignorance of true religion and faith.

' "We work to ensure that all service members are free to exercise their Constitutional right to practice their religion – in a manner that is respectful of other individuals' rights to follow their own belief systems; and in ways that are conducive to good order and discipline; and that do not detract from accomplishing the military mission."'

Does this mean that Mohammadans get to prey 5 times a day I think they would detract from the military mission.
