The commander of Warren Air Force Base is refusing to back down after she surrendered to the demands of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation and removed a Bible from a POW-MIA table.
Col. Stacy Jo Huser, the 90th Missile Wing commander replaced the Bible with a generic "book of faith" to ensure "the religious and non-religious feel included and cared for."
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation had complained that the inclusion of God's Word was a violation of the U.S. Constitution.
The MRFF is easily triggered by public displays of Christianity on military installations.
The head of the foundation, Mikey Weinstein, wrote in the HuffPost that he is dedicated to fighting "virulent religious oppression" carried out by "incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation's armed forces."
First Liberty Institute, one of the nation's top religious liberty law firms, blasted the base commander's decision.
"The same Air Force that produced men like General Robbie Risner, who spent more than seven years as a POW in the infamous Hanoi Hilton, waving the white flag of surrender," attorney Mike Berry told "The Todd Starnes Radio Show." "Like the vast majority of American POWs, General Risner credited his survival to his faith in God and prayer. This latest display of capitulation by the Air Force is simply a slap in the face to the memory of General Risner and the many other brave American POWs."
As I mentioned on Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream, Weinstein once bragged during the Obama administration about having a hotline to the Pentagon. It's time for President Trump to disconnect the number.
