Air Force Removes 'God' From Logo

(American Family Association) We need your help in calling on the Air Force to reverse its decision to remove a Latin reference to "God" from a logo after an atheist group complained.
Rep. Randy Forbes, (R-VA), said the Air Force removed the logo several weeks ago from the Rapid Capabilities Office. The patch included a line written in Latin that read, "Doing God's Work with Other People's Money."

But after the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers complained, the line was rewritten in Latin to read, "Doing Miracles with Other People's Money."

A bi-partisan group of 35 lawmakers sent a letter to Air Force Secretary Michael Donley and Air Force Chief of Staff Norton Schwartz expressing concern over the decision to remove the reference to God.

Forbes said the removal of "God" is a "bridge too far in terms of the rights of men and women who serve in our military and their ability to express their faith."

Unfortunately, under Secretary Donley, the Air Force is quickly becoming the military's leader in trampling religious symbols, emblems and freedoms from the armed services. Last year, the Air Force banned a class on the Christian-based "Just War Theory" because the class used verses from the Bible.

Send an email to Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley. Urge him to reverse the decision to alter the Rapid Capabilities Office logo.
