But this is apparently too much for some atheist at Patrick Air Force Base, who complained that the inclusion of the Bible offended him. Instead of telling the offended party to get over it, base commanders decided to remove the entire Missing Man Table, including the Bible. The press statement about the decision said the Bible was causing “controversy and division,” and declared that a new display would be set up in an “inclusive” manner. Statements about inclusion don’t make sense when a traditional memorial honoring POWs and MIAs is taken down because of one person’s compliant, especially when the objection is to the Bible that represents the faith of thousands of Americans who never returned from battle.
Of course, the Chief of Staff denies that the Air Force will no longer stand up for religious liberty, but retired Army Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin is closer to the truth when he said, “They buckle to an extreme minority group every time, and constitutionally, they are simply wrong.” Christians had better wake up and realize that our faith is under attack and it’s up to us to defend it.
