Religion in the Air Force

Religious practices in the Air Force are
changing, apparently as a result of accusations of proselytizing in the
past.

Alan Cooperman reports in the Washington Post that religious practices are being curtailed in the Air Force and will likely be restricted in other services after a trial period.

The guidelines state that we must be able to stand together as Americans and as airmen (sic). Defense Secretary Rumsfeld, announcing the policy, noted that religious divisions are tearing many nations apart.

Interesting that religion is viewed as divisive rather than uniting. Given the charges of proselytizing at the Air Force Academy, it’s not difficult to see why.
