Military Honor Guard Censorship

Military honor guardsman, Patrick Cubbage, often did his duty at funerals and presented the flag of our country to the family of a fallen soldier. This is a long-standing tradition in the larger military "family" and part of that tradition is that the presenter will say, "This flag is presented on behalf of a grateful nation and the United States Army as a token of appreciation for your loved one's honorable and faithful service." Depending on the religious preference of the family, he may also add, “God bless you and this family, and God bless the United States of America.” For doing this, Cubbage was fired.

The attitude that would fire Cubbage supposedly comes from the Establish Clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It says, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..."

So apparently, if one reads the Amendment, Cubbage was fired in 2003 because his words to a grieving family established by law a national religion. He's one powerful dude!
