FOX NEWS RADIO – Why does Air Force Academy encourage atheism, prosecute Christianity?

Selected Article Excerpts:

  • There appears to be a double-standard at the Air Force Academy.

    The Academy is defending its promotion of an atheist event just a week after a Christian cadet was pressured into removing a Bible verse from his personal white board because it allegedly offended non-Christian cadets.

    “Ask An Atheist Day” was sponsored by The Freethinkers Club, an Academy approved cadet club. The event was advertised all week on Academy bulletin screens and an official email sent to the Cadet Wing. An invitation was also issued by a cadet to the entire Cadet Wing assembly on Tuesday.
    As I reported last week, a cadet “voluntarily” removed a Bible verse he had written on a white board hanging outside his dorm room. “I have been crucified with Christ therefore I no longer live, but Christ lives in me,” the verse from Galatians 2:20 read.

    That verse led to a formal complaint from Mikey Weinstein, of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. Exactly two hours and nine minutes after the complaint was filed, the Bible verse was erased.

    Academy Superintendent Michelle Johnson said in a written statement about the incident that the verse was removed because there was a “potential perception” problem.

  • Even the perpetually offended Mikey Weinstein objected to the atheist event.

    “They are proselytizing for atheism,” Weinstein told the Gazette. “What if this was ask a Muslim day or ask an Evangelical Christian Day?”
