Air Strikes on Bible, Courtesy of USAF!


 As the year unwinds and we look back, there’s been some good news but a lot more bad news. Some items have left loose ends. 

“The single biggest frustration I’ve had in this job is the perception that somehow there is religious persecution inside the United States Air Force,” the general told lawmakers. “It is not true.”

  • Gen Mark A. Welsh III CSAF.jpg
  • Thus spake USAF Chief of Staff Mark Welsh, earlier this year. Yet he lied.  

Rewind to March this year. 

The following is the Air Force’s explanation of what happened:

“The 45th Space Wing deeply desires to honor America’s Prisoners and War (POW) and Missing in Action (MIA) personnel.

Unfortunately, the Bible’s presence or absence on the table at the Riverside Dining Facility ignited controversy and division, distracting from the table’s primary purpose of honoring POWs/MIAs.

Oh yeah? Who complained? The ACLU, who hardly even qualify as American? Some uptight little pinko?

Does General Welsh also plan to remove ‘offensive’ signs from the dollars with which he’s paid his large salary?

Acceptable? To a tiny trouble-making minority? Not, we know, to the families of the Missing Men!

Each item is an integral part of the Missing Man Table & Honors Ceremony, according to the National League of Families of American Prisoners and Missing in Southeast Asia“The Bible represents the strength gained through faith in our country, founded as one nation under God, to sustain those lost from our midst,” the official ceremony document states.

But what do Mark ‘Appeasement’ Welsh’s flunkeys have to say?

After consultation with several relevant organizations, we now intend to re-introduce the POW/MIA table in a manner inclusive of all POWs/MIAs as well as Americans everywhere.”  http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2014/03/31/air-force-removes-bible-from-pow-mia-display/

SO what’s happened since the shameful removal of that Bible in March?

I can find no update – any readers know?
