The Patriot Post® · Air Force Removes Nativity

The Air Force Academy has been the focus of some recent attention with its removal of “So help me God” from its official listing of military oaths. This week it’s Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina that’s having its own run-in with religious liberty.

The ironically named Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) pressured officials at Shaw to remove a Nativity scene after allegedly receiving some small number of complaints from offended Airmen. Paul Loebe of the MRFF wrote, “It was very sectarian in nature and a direct violation of the U.S. Constitution as well as a blatant violation of Air Force Instruction 1-1, Section 2.11.” Nothing could be further from the truth, but that’s what these leftists specialize in – obfuscating truth and spreading lies.

By the way, the MRFF is run by Mikey Weinstein and is causing all the trouble over the oaths. Evidently, the military fears Weinstein, and he needs only make a phone call to have religious liberty suppressed. Besides, it is the Christmasholiday winter solstice season in which certain displays of joy intolerance are attacked and banned by the Left.
