How about trying this one on for size? Here is the press release headline from Congressman Tim Huelskamp’s office this afternoon:

Obama Administration Denies Mass to Catholics

Apparently, a priest was denied access to a military chapel this weekend. Father Ray Leonard serves at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay in Georgia but because of the government shutdown, he wasn’t allowed to go to celebrate Mass this past weekend.

He is contracted by the Defense Department to meet the spiritual needs of Catholics, but not now. The chapel doors were locked and the sign said, “Shutdown: No Catholic service till further notice.”

sounds like government waste

Why should tax dollars be allocated the Department of "Defense" to pay for this kind of stuff in the first place? If military members on US soil want to attend religious services, then they should be allowed to go on leave, off the military base, just the same if they want to go to a bar, etc. This isn't like these military members are on their deathbeds in the middle of a battlefield.

The complaint is a bunch of b.s. I would one-up Obama and shut this stuff down permanently, not temporarily.
