“GOD” NOW MISSING IN USAF OATH
Wait, God is no longer the co-pilot out there in Colorado Springs? That’s what one aggressive watchdog wants to know.
“The U.S. Air Force Academy has removed the words ‘So help me God’ from some written materials, including the oath administered to USAF inductees based upon the objections of a single atheist,” says Tom Fitton, director of Judicial Watch.
The watchdog group has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Defense Department to obtain the official records showing what - or who - is behind the decision.
“Unilaterally removing ‘so help me God’ from Air Force Academy materials is at odds with our nation’s history, the rule of law, and the fundamental values of the American people,” Mr. Fitton observes. “We want to get to the bottom of this controversy and it is a shame we had to go to court to try to get past the Pentagon’s stonewall.”
