General cites Bible comment as ‘real courage’

Given the current threats under a progressive administration in Washington on religious rights, especially for members of military, it took “real courage” for an admiral simply to say he gave a Bible to a hurting soldier and would do so again.

That’s according to Gen. Jerry Boykin, executive vice president of the Family Research Council, which was the target of a violent attack by a leftist last year.

Boykin was citing the bold statement by Coast Guard Rear Admiral William D. Lee  at Thursday’s National Day of Prayer event in Washington.

Lee recalled a recent meeting with a young soldier who had tried to kill himself but survived the gunshot to his own head.

Lee said he knew he needed to respond, and he gave the soldier a Bible.

“The lawyers tell me that if I do that, I’m crossing the line. I’m so glad I’ve crossed that line so many times,” said the admiral, who received a standing ovation.
