A coalition of a who’s who of civil rights and religious freedom organizations is posing a question to cadets at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs to expose the institution’s violation of religious rights.
The new billboard by the Restore Military Religious Freedom Coalition simply asks: “Are you free to say so help me God? They did.”
The message on the billboard, which has been posted near the entrance to the academy, is emblazoned on an image of the faces of Mount Rushmore.
The coalition includes the American Family Association, American Values, Alliance Defending Freedom, Center for Military Readiness, Center for Security Policy, Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, Concerned women for America, Family Research Council, Family PAC Federal, Freedom Alliance, Freedom X, Heritage Foundation, International Conference of Evangelical Chaplain Endorsers, Judicial Watch, Liberty Center for Law and Policy, Liberty Counsel, Liberty Institute, Media Research Center, Military-Veterans Advocacy, Ohio Faith and Freedom Coalition, Patriotic Veterans, Stand Up America, Thomas More Law Center, The Oak Initiative and Traditional Values Coalition, which collectively represent tens of millions of Americans.
The billboard comes in response to a recent attack on the freedoms of religion and speech at the academy.
The message references the removal of “so help me God” from the official cadet handbook and the recent censorship of a Bible verse from a cadet’s personal whiteboard.
