Air Force Dishonorably Discharges God (Again)
h/t Washington Post
The rules governing the Air Force’s enlistment and re-elistmenet oaths used to include a note stating that “Airmen may omit the words ‘so help me God,’ if desired for personal reasons.” That exception quietly disappeared in October 2013, after which the Air Force required the inclusion of the full oath for any enlistment or reenlistment.
So it was cool to omit the words, and then that got changed back in gawd-damned 2013 after the Air Force faced pressure to change the policy from the American Humanist Association, which threatened to sue them on behalf of an airman who was not allowed to reenlist because he would not say the phrase.
So a good old-fashioned lawsuit forced the change back. Is there anything more American than suing for your rights?
Because everyone knows that taking away rights from oppressed minorities is the job of Chief Justice John Roberts, not the Air Force.
Why can’t we have a congressional investigation into this?
Paging Darrell Issa - maybe you put your spotlight-loving ratfvcking assface to good use and begin to make up for years of being a top-rated acting
shiitmuffin and tell us how the rule was "quietly changed."
