    links to a report about illegal religious proseltizing at the Air Force Academy. Shows what happens when we let the nose of that born-again camel into the tent. Very sad and troubling.

    Apparently the secularists feel that the Air Force is the best place to attack the military for having morals. I guess I might be offended if I worked or attended school there.

    Having morals? The issue is one of illegal activity.

    In mrsx defense, it would be uncomfortable to say the least to have a Professor tell you that everybody in the class should be a Christian by the end of the year.

    I don't see anything wrong here. It's no different than the Jehova Witnesses knocking on your door wanting to talk with you about God. Their intentions are the same. "Proselytizing". As a matter of fact, the Bible commands Christians to go forth and spread the word of God, and that's why the Jehovas do it.

    If you're warming up to be another liberal shit bag Christian basher, try harder. This was lame.

    I gotta disagree PR. There is a huge difference in that if a JW knocks on your door and you don't want to listen to what they have to say, you can simply close the door in their face. At the academy, there are allegations of coercion and reprisal aimed at those who would close the door if they had a choice. It sounds widespread enough to be considered institutionally sanctioned. I know you have no problem with what is going on because they happen to be slinging what you believe in, but imagine your dismay if the majority of the staff were Muslim and they were employing these tactics to spread Islam instead of Christianity.

    BTW, your use of the word force instead of forth is a highly enlightening Freudian slip.

    I for one do not have all the facts...I will defer judgement...however this does smack of the "Tail Hook" controversy the media forced down our throats...As for the Captain... former Missle Officer turned pastor...who seems to be the front person in this attack...well she seems to be more concerned about her transfer from a cushy job more than the charges she put forward...just food for thought! :huh: :blah2:
