Shutdown via Republicans or Democrats, the real "bucks stop here" person is president Obama himself.
He is the one in charge!
The military authorities have closed all chapels and in affect keeping Catholics from attending Holy Mass.
The military doesn't act without higher authority.....yes Mr. Obama's administration, but the direction is from MR.OBAMA!
The word is out "make things has hard as possible!", for veterans, elderly, Social Security recipients. This administration even has the gull to deny death benefits for our son's and daughters who have given their lives for our government representative and elected president so they can play political power games.
They are now closing all military chapels and arresting priests hired to support the spiritual needs of the soldiers.
And especially Catholics who have an obligation to attend mass on Sundays.
It's getting more and more obvious and "in-your-face" that our government is loosing touch with the people.
...and more and more obvious that this president has no shame when taking aware our religious freedom
