Featured Inbox Posting From A Valued MRFF Supporter

Organized public prayer by the USAFA football team is both inappropriate and illegal.  This is not, however, what is most disturbing.

It is a given that military academies teach the cadets that their sworn duty is to uphold the Constitution.   This can be done essentially in two ways:         1) a mandatory course in civics;   2) by example.  Clearly, neither is being accomplished.  Rather, inconceivable as it may seem, the Academy’s leadership is, by failing its duty, promoting a violation of the Constitution and DOD regulations.

Hard as it apparently is for some to understand, a theocracy, Christian or otherwise, is not a democracy. If the Academy leadership does not understand this, how can we expect more of the cadets?

Religious beliefs are a private matter. Organized public demonstrations of religious fealty on the part of a military unit insult democracy and reveal that the leadership has failed its mission.

Heads must roll.
