American Air Force Academy

Quickly, from the AP:

"Air Force Cadets See Religious Harassment"

Religious harassment in Colorado Springs? No. Come on.
AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. - Less than two years after it was plunged into a rape scandal, the Air Force Academy is scrambling to address complaints that evangelical Christians wield so much influence at the school that anti-Semitism and other forms of religious harassment have become pervasive.
Um, if Evanglical Christians wield so much power at a place that was "plunged into a rape scandal," then...what part did the Evangelical Christians play in that rape scandal?

"None. All the raping was done by cadets under the control of Satan."

Meaning?

"The ones who weren't born again."

Right.
There have been 55 complaints of religious discrimination at the academy in the past four years, including cases in which a Jewish cadet was told the Holocaust was revenge for the death of Jesus and another was called a Christ killer by a fellow cadet.
"Well, it was and he is."

Okay, Iceman.
The 4,300-student school recently started requiring staff members and cadets to take a 50-minute religious-tolerance class.
A 50-minute class to educate someone who's been steeped in hatred since the womb?

Good luck!
More than 90 percent of the cadets identify themselves as Christian. A cadet survey in 2003 found that half had heard religious slurs and jokes, and that many non-Christians believed Christians get special treatment.

"There were people walking up to someone and basically they would get in a conversation and it would end with, 'If you don't believe what I believe, you are going to hell,'" Vice Commandant Col. Debra Gray said.
"Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be" is such a good AC/DC song. Man.
Two of the nation's most influential evangelical Christian groups, Focus on the Family and New Life Church, are headquartered in nearby Colorado Springs.
You KNOW that James Dobson just LOVES his cadets. Bet he calls them, "Soldiers for Christ," or something like that.

"Onward Christian Air Force Cadets!"

Following the premise from yesterday's post, they'll just have to rename the place "The American Air Force Academy."

We'll open ours out by Edwards AFB.

More later...got a meeting in Burbank.

  • This hell place, where I'll go if I don't believe everything you say. Will there be cigs? 'Cos I don't mind not going to heaven, as long as they've got cigarettes in hell.
