From The Hill:
A group of lawmakers are expressing concern about Bibles that they say were removed from display at Veterans Affairs clinics.
The leaders of the Congressional Prayer Caucus — Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) and Rep. (R-Va.) — are demanding the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) replace Bibles they say were removed from displays at three clinics around the country.
“We request an explanation as to why the Bibles were removed from the three VA facilities,” Lankford, Forbes, and dozens of other lawmakers wrote Thursday in a letter to VA Secretary Robert McDonald.
The Bibles were part of the Missing Man Table displays, which honor members of the military who are missing in action. “One of the objects on the table is a Bible, meant to ‘represent the strength gained through faith to sustain us and those lost from our country, founded as one nation under God,” they wrote.
