The United States Air Force loves to participate in patriotic celebrations, unless you are a Christian organization.
For over 40 years, a community in Idaho had secured a flyover for their annual “God and Country” festival, but the Air Force cancelled their participation this year due to the “focus on Christianity.” Apparently, the Air Force has a problem with people who celebrate our Judeo-Christian heritage while honoring America.
I guess they will be changing their oath of service soon. After all, it ends with the words, “SO HELP ME GOD.”
