She and the article didn't address the retaliatory flurry of religious writings on hallway whiteboards, after the initial one was removed? That must mean something... She had better clarify what, though, or one must presume a two-faced tactic: one step back, ten steps forward for the Dominionists withing the USAFA.
When one appears to represent the government of the people of the United States of America, one must appear neutral with respect to religion, among other things. When one is in one's personal space, attire, and time allotment, one may do otherwise. The whiteboard, while being "personal" in the sense of assignment to one cadet, was not in a personal place. Rather, it was displayed in a nonpersonal space with the deliberate intention of influencing others. The one doing so used his governmental position to access that whiteboard and misused his government position in doing so.
The fact that this happened in a military setting makes it worse, as our military handles weapons capable of more destruction and murder than we can begin to imagine. Were enough cadets of like mind with the scripture writer to actually reach the highest echelons of power, and if any one of them happened to dream, one night, that Jesus came to him and said he was chosen and blessed to start Armageddon, who do you think he would call, next: the Commander in Chief to confirm the order, or his like-minded former USAFA classmates to help carry it out?
Let not such extremists garner power within our military by subtly bullying others into quietly going along with their religious domination. Let others feel strong and proud, now, so they can stand up and block the actions of a delusional religious extremist in their midst, if and when the time comes.
Maybe, now, the point will finally be clear to those in command. If not, I'm sure there's more where this came from.
And, for the clearest take on Mikey's stand, regarding the USAFA oath:
For those with a sense of truth and humor, here's a fresh take on Klingenschmitt, who is now running for political office: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNDnd4Ly2OU. Start at 11:16, to focus in on the portion exclusively about him. His lies and extremism are illustrated with his own words and actions, there. And he's the chaplain suing Mikey Weinstein.
@Anothergrad, your interpretation of Willoughby's email stands in stark contrast to the direct quote out of that very email by @aveteran. Why is that?
@Anothergrad, don't you remember the live nuclear warheads which were flown WITHOUT ORDERS from Minot AFB, ND, to Barksdale AFB, LA -- all the way across our nation?!
Google it. And, while you're at it, google the nuclear detonators which were "ACCIDENTLY" shipped TO TAIWON, Republic of CHINA, a year and a half earlier, and not discovered for TWO YEARS -- that is, the detonators were discovered six months after the live nukes were flown across country WITHOUT ORDERS.
Now, what were you saying about Obama? Oh, that's right: It's beside the point -- the point I was making. It was muddying the waters.
