Re: “'I'm done with him'

COL Hughes provides a great example of some very prevalent and powerful religious bigotry to be found among military leaders. Also see CH Druckenmiller and Klingenschmitt before him. This is the old guard of politically-aggressive Christians ready to put aside their professional duties in order to promote their personal religious agenda. They have no respect for our secular Constitution or for the cadets, airmen, officers, and civilians that don't share their Christian beliefs. He does not see patriots and servants to the nation, he chooses instead to discriminate on the basis of religious preference. New leaders who understand their professional military ethic should distance themselves from evangelical extremists like Hughes, especially Christians who are trying to do the right thing.
The Military Association of Atheists & Freethinkers (militaryatheists.org) has had some great successes in changing policy and programs with the USAF Academy. In order for us to know that Hughes is a dinosaur and not a senior statesman representing Academy leaders is for the Academy to continue to open themselves to equal rights and to denounce those who badly misrepresent the Academy and Air Force brand.
