USAF Oath

Mikey Weinstein:

Good grief. I get it that you don’t believe in God. That is your right. But stop trying to inflict your views on the majority of Americans who do believe in Him. And back off of trying to mess with “so help me God” in the USAF oath.

I am an Air Force veteran and I resent your trying to do this!

Dear (name withheld),

You’re quite wrong in leaping to the assumption that we don’t believe in God. Most of the members/supporters of the MRFF are Christian, some are from other faiths and some are
non-believers. All are free to believe as they choose. What we are concerned about is
recognizing the right of all to their personal belief and honoring that. That’s why the
separation of church and state exists.

As you may know by now, the commanding officer of the Air Force Academy now recognizes
that correctness of our position and has issued an order to correct the situation. It might
also interest you to know the addition of the reference to God is relatively new, not a long-
standing tradition.

Best,

Mike Farrell
