 Air Force sued over religious intolerance

A New Mexico man has sued the Air Force, claiming Air Force Academy senior officers and cadets illegally imposed Christianity on others at the school:
The suit was filed in federal court by Mikey Weinstein, an academy graduate and outspoken critic of the school's handling of religion.

Over the past decade or more, the suit claims, academy leaders have fostered an environment of religious intolerance at the Colorado school, in violation of the First Amendment.

Weinstein claims that evangelical Christians at the school have coerced attendance at religious services and prayers at official events, among other things.

"It's a shocking disgrace that I had to file this thing," Weinstein told The Associated Press.

This bullshit has been going on for a while. I guess all the promises and sensitivity training didn't do much.

Damn... I wish that I'd remember better, but had heard some more on this matter a week ago on NPR, and how the a General was quoted to have believed it is the Military's (Army's?) God given right to push the Christian Agenda... I'm paraphrasing of course, but that's the gist of it.

Down with those Non-Christians!!
