FOX News interviewee reports claims:
"A lot of the members are upset over this several reached out to me over the weekend and says hey we want to let you guys know what's happening because it's just not right. They believe this is an attempt to erase the Christian heritage of this organization."
One claim quote: "Chaplains told to stop using the name of Jesus in prayers."
Another statement, quote: "Jesus Christ" removed from newly revised Ritual and Missal books."
KETK called the DAR Headquarters in Washington D.C.. to get their response.
NSDAR representatives tell KETK,
It's completely false and they took the change to the NSDAR Ritual and Missal message in 2011 out of context.
The part of the message taken out of context reads:
"The Executive Officers believe that the new Ritual and Missal can be used by members of any faith, substituting words as they wish, changing prayers to suit the needs of the meeting in which they are being used."
The DAR tell KETK,
Each Chaplain and other officers are strongly encouraged to create their own prayers into which they may insert the name of Jesus Christ for appropriate occasion and audience.
