Dear Military Religious Freedom Foundation,
These past several days I have followed the exchange between the Foundation and the United States Merchant Marine Academy Superintendent as reported in the media. I had initially wanted the mural, showing an enormous Jesus image, to be removed. This is still ultimately my wish. However with help from the Foundation to understand the situation and after further study, I understand why this compromise was accepted. I believe it was eminently wise and the right choice.
I hope any midshipman, faculty, staff or visitor understands that he or she may contact MRFF anytime they find themselves in the Elliot See Room of USMMA for a mandatory meeting and the curtains are open. I believe MRFF will immediately address and remedy this, just as the Foundation did this past week.
Congratulations on a job well done.
