Specifically, the letter blasts the Air Force for removing religious references in missile training, removing Bibles from Air Force Inn checklists, and barring commanders from telling airmen about chaplain Corps programs. The letter states:
"When our sons and daughters join the military, they are not signing away their First Amendment right to religious liberty. Unfortunately, it seems that some parts of the military are intent on prohibiting religious expressions rather than protecting it."
He is concerned that the Air Force always seems ready to cave in to the demands of anti-Christian activist Mikey Weinstein.
"I think he has way more influence in the Air Force than is necessary," Lee decides. "Certainly when he has threatened suit, the Air Force seems to have jumped very quickly. His organization claims to be concerned about religious liberty, but I personally interpret their actions as trying to denigrate religious liberty rather than celebrate it. So, yes -- he's very much involved."
The former Army chaplain concludes that creating an atmosphere in which one is not allowed to have a Bible on his or her desk or to invite someone to a home Bible study is not the environment America's Founding Fathers envisioned for the military.
