CSIndy – AFA’s Gould refers to Sikhs as going to ‘mosque’

Selected Article Excerpts:

  • Gen. Mike Gould, superintendent of the Air Force Academy, is again stirring the religious waters by referring to Sikhs as Muslims. During a briefing of faculty, staff and cadets today, Gould mentioned the shooting in Oak Creek, Wisc., where six people were killed as having taken place at “a Sikh Mosque.”
  • Sikhs are not Muslims, Mikey Weinstein says most emphatically. Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, says he has been contacted by 19 faculty, staff and cadets at the academy about Gould’s gaff. “They’re pretty horrified,” he says.
  • He says he contacted the academy’s public affairs department so someone could point out Gould’s error to him before further briefings were held and was asked by a public information officer, referring to Sikhs, “They’re Hindus, right?” 
  • “This is just unbelievable,” Weinstein says. “It shows the lack of intelligence, lack of broad cultural diversity, the lack of understanding when you have this idiot leading the academy.”
