Subject: Another Shock to the System Sent: Wed, 27 May 2009 9:48 pm This came from a friend of of a friend who taught at Mississippi State University (near Starkville) and at The University of Mississippi (Ole Miss). I wanted to give ya'll some disturbing information. I work with the Catch-A-Dream Foundation which provides hunting and fishing trips to childen with life-threatening illnesses? It is a great program needless to say. This past weekend we had our annual banquet/fundraiser event in Starkville. As part of the program, we had scheduled Sgt. 1st Class Greg Stube, a highly decorated U.S. Army Green Beret and inspirational speaker who was severely injured while deployed overseas and didn't have much of a chance for survival. Greg is stationed at Ft. Bragg and received permission from his commanding officer to come speak at our function. Everything was on go until President Obama made a policy that NO U.S. SERVICEMAN CAN SPEAK AT ANY FAITH-BASED PUBLIC EVENTS ANYMORE. Needless to say, Greg had to cancel his speaking event with us. Didn't know if anyone else was aware of this new policy. Wonder why this was not in the news, what other similar "changes" are coming in the future? Many items are not newsworthy. This, of course, is the new "transparency". Any confirmation of this? Gee, I was kinda hoping THAT might be provided by someone else -- if, of course, they had any info on this "new policy" one way or the other. The friend I know. Their (other) friend I do not? Anything else?
