From the Chicago Sun-Times:

Critics see religious bias in Air Force Academy
by Robert Weller

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 that religious harassment has become pervasive.

There have been 55 complaints of religious discrimination at the academy in the last 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.

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

Critics of the academy say the sometimes-public endorsement of Christianity by high-ranking staff has contributed to a climate of fear. They also say leaders are desperate to avoid the sort of uproar that came with a 2003 scandal.

The American Inquisition has initiated a hostile takeover of the Air Force Academy. Not that that's a hard thing to do, seeing as how the AFA is in Colorado Springs, which also hosts SpongeDob StickyPants World Headquarters.

You know, I would've thought that turning our military into an arm of the American Inquisition's jihad against all things non-Christian would be the LAST thing we want.
