Dying on D-Day so that men are free to enter the women's showers?


The D-Day Normandy invasion was 72 years ago today. The citizen soldiers who stormed Omaha beach and the other landing sites were fighting for freedom to overthrow tyranny. They knew that many would not live past the day, but they bravely wade ashore through deadly machine-gun fire. They faced death knowing they would leave behind a country that stood for their Judeo-Christian values.

President Franklin Roosevelt announced the attack to the nation via a prayer he read over the radio. This is a prayer that if it was cited over a public school intercom today, would get the student condemned if not expelled. The same school that would allow men to enter the showers of female students. Is this what the D-Day heroes died for?

Roosevelt began his prayer: "Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity. Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith." [italics added]

Other extracts:

"Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom. 

"And for us at home - fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers of brave men overseas - whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them - help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice."

"With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

"Thy will be done, Almighty God.

"Amen."

Who are the unholy forces today? Are they the mothers and fathers who want to preserve the privacy and dignity of their daughters to not share shower facilities with men? Are the unholy forces those who want to preserve the values taught by the Bible? Are the unholy forces those who advocate for the superiority of the traditional family for raising children?

There are 9,387 American soldiers buried in the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial. I can guarantee you that none of these men died for a country now led by "the schemings of unworthy men".
