Rep. Louie Gohmert went on Fox News and accused President Obama of a pattern of discrimination against Christians, particularly in the military, but many of his examples were false, distorted or incomplete.
Here are just a few of the claims Gohmert made about the Obama administration:
He talked about “continued reports” of “crosses being removed from [military] chapels.” The military has a longstanding policy against permanent religious symbols being attached to military chapels. During the Bush administration, for example, the Army in 2008 removed three crosses from a chapel in Kosovo.Gohmert said that “it’s considered an act of hostility if you give somebody a Bible on their death bed or mention God” at the Walter Reed military hospital. He’s referring to a poorly worded hospital memo that sought to address patient complaints about proselytizing. The memo was quickly rescinded and never enforced.
