No religious bias found at the U-S Air Force Academy.

By June 24, 2005

USA (MNN)–The United States Air Force Academy wrapped up its probe into religious intolerance by evangelical Christians.

According to the Associated Press, the Pentagon investigated complaints that Christians at the academy bullied those of other faiths, but found no overt discrimination.

They did, however, cite a degree of “insensitivity,” and noted that the academy failed to accommodate the diverse religious needs of cadets and staff.

The report, in effect, chided the school for its religious tone. The case came to light when cadets complained of pressure to attend chapel and join prayer groups.

Academy leaders and the Air Force will be clarifying policies on religious expression. The Air Force also formed a task force to address the religious climate at the academy.

Pray that the testimonies of believers on campus will remain strong.
