‘So Help Me God’ and the Air Force

The phrase “so help me God” is once again under fire in the Air Force oaths. ABC News reports, “The Pentagon said [Wednesday] its General Counsel had determined that the Air Force cannot compel its airmen to include the phrase in its oaths. The Air Force says it will institute the change immediately, returning to a practice it had changed last year.” Michael Weinstein and his so-called “Military Religious Freedom Foundation” (MRFF) have fomented the issue. Weinstein, who was tapped by Obama earlier this year to “consult” with DoD on faith expression in the military, is little more than a proxy for the Obama regime, a surrogate doing the bidding of the most faith-intolerant administration in the history of our Republic. According to The Washington Post, Weinstein claimed that Christian “proselytizing” is a “national security threat,” adding, “What is happening is a spiritual rape. … It is sedition and treason. It should be punished.” This latest selective omission could well be part of an Obama administration effort to remove “so help me God” entirely from all military oaths.
