Air Force Academy vs. The Constitution

Earlier this month, an Air Force Academy cadet was forced to remove a Bible verse on his personal white board after the Military Religious Freedom Foundation claimed offense.

“I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ live in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” – Galatians 2:20

MRFF President Michael “Mikey” Weinstein, self proclaimed “undisputed leader of the national movement to restore the obliterated all separating church and state” in the military, described the student’s white board quoting of scripture as pouring “fundamentalist Christian gasoline on an already raging out-of-control conflagration of fundamentalist Christian tyranny, exceptionalism, and supremacy.”

The Air Force Academy complied with Weinstein’s demands, having the scripture removed. But that’s not enough — Weinstein is demanding that not only should the cadet be punished, but that their entire chain of command should be as well.

At least a dozen cadets responded in support of religious freedom, posting Bible verses on their personal white boards. Please join me and thousands of others in standing with our cadets for their right to express their religious beliefs without fear of persecution.

No one, especially those who volunteer to risk their lives to defend our freedoms, should be denied their constitutional rights and religious freedoms. Groups like the Military Religious Freedom Foundation are seeking to silence those who profess their faith, stripping them of their religious liberties in the name of political correctness.

Our Constitution protects the free exercise of religion. Yet that doesn’t seem to be enough for some groups.

Can our service men and women count on you to help stand up for their Constitutional rights? Forward this to your friends and family and ask them to stand with us to help protect the rights of those who sacrifice so much.

The Air Force Academy is violating the religious freedom of cadets by forcing them to erase Bible verses from their personal white boards. No one, especially someone who is tasked with defending our freedoms, should be denied their constitutional rights and religious freedoms. Contact the Air Force Academy Commandant and tell him that the religious liberties of our service men and women should be protected! Go to for more information.
