Veteran Assaulted For Using "GOD" in Speech


Oscar Rodriguez is a decorated Air Force veteran with over thirty years of military service.

Air Force Master Sergeant Charles Roberson has previously heard Rodriguez deliver a touching patriotic flag-folding speech at a retirement ceremony and requested that Rodriguez deliver the exact same speech at different retirement ceremony at Travis Air Force base.

However when Rodriguez began to deliver his speech for the second time, it was not well received to say the least.

The second Rodriguez used the term "God" in his speech he was brutally carried off by servicemen present during the ceremony and was even kicked off the military base!

Rodriguez was quoted saying,

"It was one of the most humiliating experiences of my life. I have given more than three decades of service to our military and made many sacrifices for my country. To have the Air Force assault me and drag me out of a retirement ceremony simply because my speech included the word 'God' is something I never expected from our military".

This is unconscionable behavior on behalf of the Air Force. I suppose if this was a Muslim they would have done nothing. It seem
Christians are under attack from the most unlikely of places. Let’s call this one friendly fire. What happened to freedom of religion
and freedom of speech? Next thing you know the Air Force will be taking God out of the Pledge of Allegiance.
