Since Obama became President, the military has been waging war on Christianity and now its even thinking of taking God out of the Air Force oath.
The Air Force Academy is considering dropping the phrase so help me God from its honor oath after the Military Religious Freedom Foundation filed a complaint.(Check picture of praying military on link below)
The Academys Honor Review Committee met Wednesday to review the oath in response to the MRFF complaint, said Public Affairs Director Maj. Brus Vidal.
They considered a range of options and some of those options will be presented to Academy leaders and, ultimately, the Academy Superintendent for a decision, he said.
The current version of the Academys oath reads:We will not lie, steal or cheat nor tolerate among us anyone who does. Furthermore, I resolve to do my duty and live honorably, so help me God.
Last week the Colorado Springs Independent newspaper published a photograph of a poster at the academy which included the oath. The newspaper then forwarded the photo to MRFF President Mikey Weinstein.
Weinstein, a frequent critic of Christianity in the armed forces, wrote a letter to Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson. Weinstein said she responded 68 minutes later.
The Prep School poster has been taken down, she wrote in an email reply posted by the Independent.We are assessing the situation and have many mission elements, to include Prep School leadership, the Honor Review Committee and other entities on base, working to put together a way ahead that is respectful to all perspectives.
While the poster has been removed, the phrase so help me God remains as part of the oath. Vidal told the Air Force Times they could either make no change, make the God part optional or strike the entire oath.
We value an inclusive environment that promotes dignity and respect for all, Vidal told the newspaper.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council and a Marine Corps veteran, told Fox News its not about accommodating those who dont believe in God.
That already exists, he said.No one is forced to say this. This is about imposing an atheistic view on everyone so there can be no recognition of God.
We live in a country where the majority is discriminated again on behalf of a minority and if Christians dont speak up about it, were going to continue to be marginalized. http://www.rightwingnews.com/military/obamas-...

We need an anti-Christian President. The Bible-thumping slope-skulls have held back progress long enough.
