Jihad Squad's Hostile Takeover of Air Force Academy Continues

Well, today there are two stories about the continuing crisis at the Air Force Academy. Let's take them one at a time:

Failing Upward Trend Continues for Bush Flacks:

Lt. Gen. William Boykin, eat your heart out.

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (May 10) - The Pentagon said Monday it wants to promote a top commander at the Air Force Academy - a born-again Christian who has been the subject of complaints that he improperly mixes religion with education.

The announcement about Brig. Gen. Johnny Weida came one day before the scheduled arrival of a task force investigating allegations that cadets were pressured to attend religious services, public prayers were held before official events and Jewish cadets were harassed and insulted at the Colorado Springs school.

Man, promoted for being an intolerant blowhard and for encouraging the students who think like him to do the same. That must be nice.

FSU Football Coach Joins Jihad Squad:

My brother sent me this one: It appears that FSU Football Coach Bobby Bowden has weighed in on the matter of the Air Force Academy's growing intolerance for non-Christians.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Florida State football coach Bobby Bowden said Air Force coach Fisher DeBerry is fighting the government over the role of religion on his team.

Bowden brought up DeBerry while speaking to the Southern Colorado Fellowship of Christian Athletes on Sunday night.

Last season, DeBerry was asked to remove a banner from the locker room which displayed the "Competitor's Creed," including the lines "I am a Christian first and last ... I am a member of Team Jesus Christ."

"Fisher is fighting a heck of a battle over here at your academy (with) the U.S. government," Bowden was quoted as saying in the Gazette of Colorado Springs. "He's fighting a heck of a battle because he happens to be a Christian, and he wants his boys to be saved. I want my boys to be saved."

It's funny. Christians make up about 90% of this country's population, yet anytime there's a story about a law declaring Christians equal to God and non-Christians less than pond scum being blocked or some court upholding the freedom of religion clauses of the First Amendment, you get someone like Bowden whining about how Christians are being slaughtered in Satan's name. Weird.

"The problem with us Christians is we won't speak out," he said.

And yet, when non-Christians "speak out," guys like Bowden want to institute our own Kristallnacht...
