NEWS FLASH! RELIGIOUS BIAS ON CAMPUS! | 2005-05-07

Air Force Academy Wrestles with Alleged Religious Bias was the headline this week. Do you think that ole Bob's message is starting to get across?

Well, no.

You see, there is Christian bias at the Air Force Academy. It is so bad that a group called Americans United for Separation of Church and State has gotten involved.

The Left has groups to combat even the most imaginary of problems. We have trouble even recognizing really big problems. As G.K. Chesterton said, "Men can always be blind to a thing so long as it is big enough." This article provides a case in point.

The "religious climate" at the Academy includes "allegations of anti-Semitism, favoritism for born-again Christian cadets and conversion attempts by evangelicals on the Colorado Springs campus."

Do you think that there is anti-white bias at the Academy? Do you think non-whites are favored over whites? Do you think the professors there promote leftist nonsense in class?

The article states that the Pentagon is taking these allegations "very seriously."

Do you think the Pentagon would ever even consider our complaints, except as perhaps signs of sedition?
