Re: “'I'm done with him'

Pam Zubeck's article says it best "Leaders at the Air Force Academy seem to think that dealing with some complaints about religious bias isn't worth their time"

I absolutely agree that it AND ANYTHING PUT OUT BY WEINSTEIN is NOT worth the Academy's time. The United States Air Force Academy is there to do FAR MORE IMPORTANT THINGS LIKE PREPARING CADETS FOR THE HIGHEST COMMAND LEVELS OF THE AIR FORCE than even CONSIDERING cadet complaints about 'religious bias.'

And who am I? I am Retired Army Colonel Dave Hughes, who graduated in the Class of 1950 of West Point before I fought two wars as an Infantry Officer and many other military assignments, including teaching at USMA, before retiring in my home town of Colorado Springs before most of you were born.

Every Sunday for four years at USMA between 1946 and 1950 I as well as my 700 other classmates were MARCHED to Chapel for a Sunday service. It didn't hurt me OR my atheist classmates a bit. I was a Christian before I entered West Point, I was a Christian when I graduated, was Married in a Christian Wedding to my wife of 57 years, and buried her 3 months ago with a Christian Service. And her tombstone has on it a Canterbury Cross image, and mine, already done except for death date, has a Welsh Celtic Cross on it.

I am sick and tired of all you atheists, agnostics, witch, and earth worshippers trying to FORCE the AFA Command to follow YOUR dictates as to what is, or is not, 'religiously acceptable or 'religious biased.' Start your own Atheist Air Academy if you are so worried about what YOUR acceptable cadets believe or do not believe.

As far as I am concerned Mickey Weinstein is just as intolerant of ANYONE'S belief system other than HIS OWN, as any Jihaddist Imam is of ANY Infidel - which includes 99% of all Americans - including you.
