Your claim that the leftist tyrants have set some sort of record for killing people is not backed up by history and some of the were monsters such as Stalin, Mao and several others. But compare Christianity spreading through Europe, the Americas, Africa, Asia, and you will have a hard time making your case. Then add their wars on top of that Christianity has not only killed far more but continues doing in the millions even today in our wars in the Middle East. Our military is way ahead of all the terrorist organizations put together. Remember that we created, financed, and armed the major terrorists organizations like Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and the latest, ISIS. The Muslims have done pretty good at killing themselves, and if you read your Old Testament, you will see that the Israelites did a good job of wiping out people, and leveling their cities, and salting their land in the name of their God. It will be a long time before anyone tops the three religions of the Book.
Do you think that claiming who started something and everyone else from blame that took part? Do you think the fact that Native Americans fought each other somehow makes our genocide of them okay. Remember our ancestors were the invaders with no legal, and no moral right to be here. Is the fact that other people did something evil excuses us from our own evil. Nor does one group have a monopoly on evil, it is spread through out our people. But the group with the most power in numbers, and wealth, can do the most harm with their evil. Nothing you say has justified anything you said. One part of a religion trying to force itself on others in our military is evil. After all most of the people complaining about it in our military are Christian themselves, not Atheist, or non-Christian So we are talking just about the extremist Christians.
Amazing how that that righteous morality did not stop the Genocide of the American Indians, the Slavery of Millions of Black Crow laws and the the fight against Equal Rights, the harassment of religious minorities for several centuries in our country. It did not stop mistreatment and beating of women or children, or incest, child prostitution, child porn, and still does not.
Amazing how hard it is to simply get the Air Force Academy to simply follow the law. I personally have been following the unfolding story since 2005 myself.
Thank goodness that the Air Force Academy is going back to follow Air Force regulations against showing favoritism or endorsement for one belief system over another. It has never been the military's reason for existence to enforce Christianity on its members and it should never be done. This was not done back in the Vietnam War and is only a development of the later take over of the Military Chaplin Corp by Evangelical groups. It is past time for the chaplains to reflect the actual make up of todays military.
Religious freedom is endangers whenever a government agency through its employees pushes one religion, or on denomination of a religion during government business. Freedom of religion requires that the government take a neutral stance on all religions. Our forefathers purposely did not mention Christianity in either the Declaration of Independence, nor in the Constitution.
They did not have a religious test for office holding, knowing full eel this might allow atheists, Pagans an even Muslims to hold office. As they stated they could not know what might be their religion of a future United States and there fore could not bind the country to any single region.
Freedom of religion includes the right to believe in no religion at all. Unfortunately we have a minority of Christian Domminonists that would like to end religious freedom in our country. They would like to be able to use the weapons of our military to wage a Christian war on non-Christians around the world. It is their rise in our military that has created most of the religious harassment that has developed in the military over the last 30 years. They have been the source of religious harassment in the Air Force Academy for several years, and still continue their war on everyone else.
You are very much incorrect, it is illegal for a government employee to push his religion on anyone while doing a government job. Why is it that only some Christians seem to think they have a right to shove their religion on everyone else. this as form of spiritual harassment and not only is done to non Christian people in the Air force but is even used against the Christian majority who do not do this to their fellows. Remember that most of the MRFF are themselves Christians and they are the one's complaining about threats like this. Most of the complaints from the Air Force Academy to MRFF have come from Christian cadets and Christian workers at the Air Force Academy. I am sorry but Christian bullies do not have any special right to break the law.
