    So what's the issue? This isn't new for the military. I'm not sure about the service academies. Aren't military chaplains equipped to perform services in most religions. Whether you agree with it or not; it is a constitutional right.

    Thats a big move for the Air Force Academy given their heavy fundamentalist Christian core. In the past they have been criticized for forcing cadets to profess Christian faith.

    We will have to see how cadets who use the pagan circle are treated

    Should the military be wasting money on religion of any kind?

    I always found it funny that the military employs chaplains. Thou shall not kill and all that.

    Nope, but then again neither should the government (ie prayer in Congress).
