Lawmakers claim Air Force culture becoming ‘hostile towards religion’

June 24, 2012


Dozens of House lawmakers accused the U.S. Air Force this week of being “hostile towards religion,” citing a string of recent incidents they claim show the military is taking separation of church and state too far.

“Censorship is not required for compliance with the Constitution,” they wrote in a letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta.

The letter from 66 Republican members of Congress referenced a series of cases where they claim the Air Force “succumbed” to demands from outside groups.

Among the incidents:

  • A decision to remove a Latin reference to “God” from a logo/motto for the Rapid Capabilities Office
  • A decision to stop requiring staff to check for Bibles in Air Force Inn rooms
  • The removal of a document from a distance-learning course for Squadron Officer School that suggested chapel attendance is a sign of strong leadership
  • The suspension of an ethics course because the material included Bible passages
