Colonel Stacy Jo Huser, Commander of the 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming, removed the Bible from a POW-MIA table and replaced it with a generic “book of faith,” according to Fox News. Colonel Huser told Fox that the Bible was removed to insure “the religious and non-religious feel included and cared for.” She made the decision following complaints from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. (Why isn’t there a Freedom From Bogus Anti-Religious Groups Foundation?). MRFF’s head, Mikey Weinstein, wrote in the Huffingandpuffington Post that he is dedicated to fighting “virulent religious oppression” of the sort carried out by “incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces.”
Gangs of fundamentalist Christian monster terrorists forcing a weaponized and twisted version of their religion upon their helpless subordinates? Well, that seems like a purely rational statement of facts, doesn’t it?
The table traditionally included a Holy Bible to represent “faith in a higher power and the pledge to our country, founded as one nation under God,” according to Todd Starnes of Fox News. Starnes said that Huser told him the Bible will be replaced with “a book of faith” containing spiritual writings and prayers from the five Department of Defense Chaplain-appointed groups and a sixth set of blank pages “to represent those who find solace by other means.”
Sometimes, those blank pages speak to me, move me to tears. They are so (blanking) beautiful.
Huser averred: “Taking care of our Airmen is a top priority for the 90th Missile Wing and its leaders. To drive that point home, one of our focus areas on F.E. Warren Air Force Base is increasing the sense of belonging for all our Airmen; a large part of that effort is ensuring the religious and non-religious feel included and cared for. No matter an Airman’s religious or non-religious beliefs, it is crucial for all to know we are an equally valued part of the same team vital to our mission’s success.”
“Virulent religious oppression,” carried out by “gangs” of “monsters” who “terrorize” their fellow Americans by forcing a “weaponized and twisted” version of their religion upon the “helpless?”
Sounds more like radicalized Islam to me.
It was once said that “Nothing Can Stop the U.S. Air Force.” A handful of bigoted clowns from a third-rate anti-Christian organization just proved that statement false.
