    I'm seriously disappointed in you today:

    "The Air Force Academy, in a time when our country has to borrow much of what they spend, will now waste money to provide, get this, a pagan 'worship circle'. Excuse me while I hurl."

    Do you object to the Air Force chapel building, what about the synogogue on base? I would hope that someone as religious as yourself, would not want the government obstructing anyone from practicing freely. If they don't allow pagan open spaces they don't need to allow chapels either would they? If money is your only concern, I'd imagine an outdoor pagan circle wouldn't have a lot of construction costs.

    "Oh, I almost forgot, the "special" area for Cadet weirdos is under heavy surveillance, someone might do something awful to their little pagan circle, like place a cross nearby. Oh my, that would be just awful."

    How loudly would you you howl if the Air Force allowed Cadets to "defile" the base chapel with pagan iconography?

    And bigdawg hates certain minorities, some of which are troops, so he hates our troops.

    I do agree with SW in the religion thing. One of the foundations of our country is an equality before the law. That really shouldn't be a "left or right" thing.

    Sir Didymus,

    I'm sure you are aware, but I thought I would mention the "Equality before the law" is the motto of our great state.

    I love the "Vindication" motivational poster at the top of your post Sam. I saw one once that had a picture of our current POTUS that read "Incompetence - Sometimes you CAN judge a book by its cover."

    Personally I have no problem with people practicing their religion while they are attending a military academy. However, I reject the premise that the government must provide "space" or "sanctuary" for the practice of this or any worship. I understand it is provided as a nicety, but there is no end to the gods that man will worship, hence you cannot possibly accomodate the people who worship braided hair and backwards walking dogs. What should be done is to allow the cadets, staff, etc to attend a worship service of their choice within the local community.
