Marine court-martialed over Bible verse & religious freedom

No Weapon Formed Shall Prosper
No Weapon Formed Shall Prosper

According to FoxNews.com and WashingtonPost:

A United States Marine was convicted at a court-martial for refusing to remove a Bible verse on her computer – a verse of Scripture the military determined “could easily be seen as contrary to good order and discipline.”

The plight of Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling seems unbelievable – a member of the Armed Forces criminally prosecuted for displaying a slightly altered passage of Scripture from the Old Testament: “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.”

According to court documents, the personalized scripture could “easily been seen as contrary to good order and discipline.”

Hmmm… I think that’s a stretch. She’s appealing the decision. Let’s hope her religious liberties are protected this time around.
