A Bible on display at a Veterans Affairs medical center has sparked a lawsuit. Now, the veterans group that put it there is getting involved. The Bible, carried by a World War II Prisoner of War was added to the Missing Man Table at the hospital by the Northeast MIA/ POW Network. This May, however, James Chamberlain, a US Air Force Veteran filed a lawsuit saying including the Bible on the Missing Man Table violates the Constitution, the Associated Press reported. The First Amendment says “the government may not establish any religion. Nor can the government give favoritism to one religious belief at the expense of others,” the lawsuit reads, according to AP. In the lawsuit, Chamberlain says he is a “devout Christian” and argues that the table should be a memorial to all who served — no matter their beliefs. Chamberlain also says in the lawsuit that the original table tradition does not include a Bible as one of the items, AP reported.
