Walter Reed backtracks on Bible ban

"Walter Reed National Military Medical Center is backtracking on an order that banned family members from bringing Bibles and other religious materials to injured soldiers," reports The Washington Examiner in this story.

A spokeswoman for the hospital told the newspaper that the policy was "written incorrectly," according to the story.

However, the Family Research Council, a Christian organization, has filed a Freedom of Information Act request to gain access to documents related to this policy.
