    The leader of a church-state separatist group says that there’s a “revolt” underway at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., after officials there removed a Bible verse from a white board outside a cadet’s bedroom door following complaints that its presence was offensive. Cadets angry over the Air Force Academy’s removal of the verse have since begun posting scripture from the Bible and the Koran on their whiteboards in solidarity, said Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. “The Air Force Academy has a revolt on their hands. What are they going to do?” Weinstein...

    When former Air Force Academy cadet Eric Thomas faced a disciplinary board in August 2012, a special agent with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations said he would come to explain how Thomas worked dozens of cases as a confidential informant and had been of great service to the Air Force. The agent never showed up, and Thomas was expelled from the academy eight months later. On Friday, an active-duty member of the Air Force Academy with direct knowledge of the case said the agent, Brandon Enos, did not show up because he was told not to by the...

    The U.S. Air Force reportedly had cadets snitch on one another in an effort to root out rule-breaking. (U.S. Air Force Photo by Mike Kaplan/Released) The United States Air Force reportedly has created a “secret system” of informants at its academy in Colorado Springs to snitch on fellow cadets who break the rules, in an attempt to curb drug abuse and combat sexual assault. While those who join the Air Force pledge never to lie, cheat or steal, or "tolerate among us anyone who does,” the service allegedly urged informants to deceive classmates, professors and commanders while gathering information to...

    Gay rights advocates are demanding Air Force Academy officials explain why they hired a controversial anti-gay author as part of their ethics program, saying his views are offensive and potentially destructive. It’s the latest controversy for academy officials who for years have fought to clean up their image as a haven for Christian fundamentalists. Advocates say it also raises questions about how seriously officials are working to end lingering discrimination against gay cadets. Mike Rosebush, who now works as a research analyst for the academy’s Center of Character and Leadership Development, was hired by the academy in 2009, before the...

According to Randy Sharp, director of special projects for the American Family Association, while there has been a major turnaround among the companies, there have been some holdouts."One particularly is GAP, which owns the GAP stores and Old Navy stores all across the nation," he...

The Alaska Democrat, in a statement, says he wants to work with the Obama administration to ensure individuals aren't unfairly penalized if technical issues continue with the online insurance marketplaces. Spokeswoman Heather Handyside says Begich wants to see how things with the site play out over the next several weeks and consider what makes sense. Glitches have plagued the site since open enrollment began Oct. 1. The law requires most Americans have insurance starting next year or face fines....

    The U.S. Army has appeared to do an about-face on some derogatory information recently released about the Christian conservative American Family Association (AFA). Fox News reported that in early October dozens of active duty and reserve Army troops were informed during a briefing at Camp Shelby in Mississippi that the respected pro-family organization should be classified as a hate group. According to Fox, during a slide presentation at the briefing the AFA was listed “alongside domestic hate groups like the Ku Klux Klan, Neo-Nazis, the Black Panthers, and the Nation of Islam.” But after the story about the misinformation gained...

There were 74 judges, including three Supreme Court justices, on the ballot Tuesday. Only the Supreme Court justices, however, came anywhere close to being removed from the bench.

    A spokesman for the American Family Association says a Republican homosexual activist group doesn't belong at a popular conservative political conference in February. The homosexual activist group GOProud, an offshoot of the Log Cabin Republicans, boasts on its website that it will be a co-sponsor of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington on February 18-20. Jimmy LaSalvia, executive director of GOProud, says taking part in CPAC "is one of the most important things [GOProud] will do all year," and affords the homosexual activist group "an incredible opportunity to deliver [its] message." GOProud advocates same-sex "marriage," a repeal of...

    Stockholm-area police arrested nine left-wing activists on Wednesday in connection with a string of disturbances in the southern suburb of Fittja in Botkyrka. For several nights earlier in the week, Fittja Centrum was plagued by several car fires and other acts of vandalism. Police who responded to the violence were then met with a barrage of stones when arriving on the scene. But when police responded to calls about continued unrest in the predominantly immigrant area on Wednesday night, they recognized a 20-year-old woman who is wanted on suspicion of rioting from an earlier case. Police then tracked her to...

    Please help us get this information into the hands of as many people as possible by forwarding it to your entire e-mail list of family and friends. God returns to the Capitol Visitors Center Congressman says YOU and your AFA made the difference! October 6, 2009 When the $621 million Capitol Visitors Center opened last year, somebody was conspicuously absent at the opening ceremony: God. Virtually all references to the role that faith in God played in the founding and development of the United States had been scrubbed from displays. The secular fundamentalists who designed the exhibits even mistakenly said...

    As we enter the eighth month of our punk presidency, the left’s desperation to enact the slow but sure evolution to statist health care favored in reality by Barack Obama has reached a fever pitch. Not coincidentally, boycott fever seems to be sweeping the nation. Two of them, assisted heavily by establishment media coverage, are quite visible. One that is perhaps as effective is largely unrecognized in elite circles. Finally, the most effective one may be a totally unorganized refusal to buy largely lurking behind the scenes. First, there is the situation with Whole Foods Market Inc. (WFMI). In an...

    A Tale of Two Bunnies by: Malcolm A. Kline, August 03, 2009 We have long wondered precisely what post-graduate activity women’s studies courses prepare young women for. The Bunny Ranch has given us an answer. “Last year a 22-year-old Californian going by the pseudonym Natalie Dylan decided that a fun thesis for her master’s degree would be the following experiment: Auction her virginity to the highest bidder,” Ed Vitagliano reports in the August 2009 issue of the AFA Journal. “Dylan had already earned her bachelor’s degree in women’s studies and, in September 2008, while working in preparation for entering a...

    Amsterdam, Netherlands, Aug 4, 2009 / 03:07 am (CNA).- The Amsterdam offices of an organizer for the upcoming World Congress of Families were defaced with paint and vandalized with obscenities and anti-Christian slogans last Thursday, prompting the pro-family conference’s leaders to pledge they will not be intimidated by “radical opposition.” The World Congress of Families V (WCF V) is to take place in Amsterdam on August 10-12 at the RAI Centre. In its pamphlet for the event, the Congress describes itself as the world’s largest gathering of pro-family leaders and grass-roots activists. It bills the event as “the most exciting...
