There has been a wave of attacks against religious freedom inside the United States Military.
There was the Air Force officer who was forced to remove a Bible from his desk because it might offend someone. There is the military chaplain who was instructed to resign his commission if he refused to get on board with the abolition of the militarys Dont Ask, Dont Tell policy. Theres the 20-year-old ethics course that was eliminated in July 2011 because it referenced scripture. And there is the painting containing a verse from scripture that was removed from the Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho following a complaint by an anti-Christian religious freedom group.
Recently, the United States Air Force (USAF) Academy removed the words So help me God from some written materials, including the oath administered to USAF inductees, based upon the objections of a single atheist, we allege.
Judicial Watch initiated an investigation into this troubling decision. And on September 12, 2013, we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Defense to get our hands on records that could shed light on how and why this move was made.

Someone in life will always be offended. I;m offended everyday we have an idiot who reads thru a teleprompter in the White Hut.
Yep, add me to that list.
Same here. Makes me want to throw things... (stress reducer)
There is no such thing as the freedom FROM religion or to not be offended.
The downhill slide of this Nation is in direct proportion to its rejection of a Holy God.
From removing prayer from our Schools to removing life from the womb - the wanton embracing of perversion. We brought Spiritual Death upon ourselves.
And a People of this sort are ripe to accept any sort of deception that comes along. Look at what we have for a President today!
Yes, it is up to us to fix this. Those in DC will not.
Book says that if we repent & seek him, he will hear us and heal our nation. It is time.
