—New example of anti-christian persecution.

By on

Amazing.... in several regards...

clearly the Jewish opposition is what is rabid and hateful.

It is interesting also in that it reveals the Jew's own prejudice, in claiming that a simple Bible verse was signs of FUNDAMENTALIST Christianity... really, HOW could the simple posting of a verse from the Bible-- the same Bible used by Catholics and Anglicans, lukewarm presbyterians and dead methodists and lutherans, Greek orthodox and Russian orthodox and the modern neutered community churches... this shows prejudice on the Jew's part ... he is merely an antichrist, but is not honest enough to say so.

It is also amazing he refers to the air force as a "virulently hyper-fundamentalist Christian institution" ... if this be so (which I highly doubt) then CLEARLY that should go as evidence to the fact that this is a Christian nation and that is how it is supposed to be...!

It would also be very interesting to see what other types of personal memos are ALLOWED on this board, which would show antichristian bias for a simple Bible verse--part of the U.S.'s heritage, is considered contraband...

this Jew is rabid and needs psychiatric observation and sedation if he thinks the cadet and his superior need to BE PUNISHED...! and such a rabid mentally deranged person should not have any power to intimidate ANYONE, let alone the US AIRFORCE... what are we, a bunch of panty-waist cowards...?  I guess if the queers have taken over, we are; what would that make us if a man who thinks he is a woman is more manly than we are...?

When will Christians stand up and do what is right...?

I also find it interesting that "blackboards" must be politically incorrect and "racist" whereas whiteboards are not.

It is sad that idiotic Americans actually think the military is "protecting our freedoms"...? (by starting wars overseas so the whole world hates us, then importing those hateful people into our lands and subsidizing them and paying them to breed, then restricting and outlawing our own freedoms... I must be missing something...  Our military USED to protect our freedoms when they defending OUR BORDERS, which are all but ignored, unless an American is trying to sneak out of the country with his own money, then all hell breaks loose.... but millions of foreigners can invade and also send billions of US dollars out of the country and it is no reason to raise an eyebrow... I once saw a well-worded bumper sticker, "If you can read this.. thank a teacher.  If you can read this in English, thank a soldier."  Sadly, now, neither teacher nor soldier can be thanked, because the schools have been as subverted even as has been immigration and the border).


One more point: Clearly, his choice of the Bible verse he wrote there was prophetic... it seems he has been crucified.  May God reward him for standing up for the only true God and the only true religion, Christianity, upon which our nation was founded--upon which all our sister nations have been founded--and may God reward all his false accusers... May God strike them blind and may God strike them with painful disease and lightning and tornadoes and "other acts of God," random violence and every other evil.... and if such Divine chastisement does not bring them or the others to repentance, then may God destroy them from off the face of the earth for their wickedness and cut off their memory from the land of the living.  If you are a true Christian, pray that prayer with me... if you cannot pray that prayer, then you do not hate evil, you are a friend of the world, and according to the Bible, an enemy of God.

Air Force Academy Removes Bible Verse From Cadet's Whiteboard

The Air Force Academy removed a Bible verse posted on a cadet's whiteboard after it determined the posting had offended other cadets, a spokesman for the academy said.

The cadet wrote the passage on the whiteboard posted outside his room. "I have been crucified with Christ therefore I no longer live, but Christ lives in me," the verse from Galatians read.

Mikey Weinstein, director of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, told me 29 cadets and four faculty and staff members contacted his organization to complain about the Christian passage.

"Had it been in his room - not a problem," Weinstein told me. "It's not about the belief. It's about the time, the place and the manner."

He said the Bible verse on the cadet's personal whiteboard created a hostile environment at the academy.

"It clearly elevated one religious faith (fundamentalist Christianity) over all others at an already virulently hyper-fundamentalist Christian institution," he said. "It massively poured fundamentalist Christian gasoline on an already raging out-of-control conflagration of fundamentalist Christian tyranny, exceptionalism and supremacy at USAFA."

Who knew that a Bible verse posted on a whiteboard could generate such outrage?

Weinstein said he immediately contacted the Air Force Academy and filed a complaint. Exactly two hours and nine minutes later, the Bible verse had been scrubbed from the cadet's whiteboard.

A spokesman for the AFA confirmed that the religious text was cleansed from the board.

"The whiteboards are for both official and personal use, but when a concern was raised we addressed it and the comment was taken down," Lt. Col. Brus Vidal told me in a written statement."

Weinstein told me the Air Force Academy did a good job in fixing the problem and credited Lt. Col. Denise Cooper.

"She immediately said this is wrong and will use it as a teachable moment," he said. 

The academy said the cadet would not be punished. 

"We don't see misconduct here but the division between your personal room and the hallway is a gray area," Vidal said.

Weinstein took umbrage with that comment and said the cadet must be punished.

"It's not a gray area, this is absolute misconduct," he said. "Not only should the cadet be punished but (also) his/her responsible USAFA cadet and officer chain of command that ignored this blatant and egregious violation of Air Force regulation 1-1 and the United States Constitution."

The 1-1 regulation Weinstein cited is an extensive document with a section on religious proselytizing and other religious matters.

An academy spokesman tells me the whiteboard Bible verse did not violate Air Force regulations.

Retired General Jerry Boykin, executive vice president of the Family Research Council told me he was outraged by the removal of the Bible verse.

"Once the academy allowed cadets to use these whiteboards for their personal use, censorship of religious commentary is unacceptable," Boykin told me. "Either the Air Force Academy is very confused about the Constitution of the United States or they don't really believe in the liberties that are provided by that document."

Boykin said the academy needs to take a few moments for some personal reflection.

"In essence, what they are doing is preparing young men and women to defend the Constitution while at the same time depriving these cadets of their own constitutional liberties," he charged.

Michael Berry, an attorney with Liberty Institute, told me it appears the Air Force Academy's decision is in violation of a new Pentagon regulation meant to protect religious liberty.

"If the cadet didn't violate any rules, then why was the quote removed?" Berry asked. "It appears that the Air Force now believes Bible verses are now a violation of AFI 1-1."

Berry said Liberty Institute, which specializes in religious liberty cases, stands ready to defend any cadet whose religious rights have been violated.
