Billboard Of The Day

Via the Christianist site OneNewsNow:
A coalition of Christian organizations has posted a billboard supporting the religious freedom of Christian cadets. The Restore Military Religious Freedom Coalition sponsored the billboard near one of the entrances to the [Air Force] Academy which asks Air Force cadets "Are you free to say so help me God? They did," against a background of the four Presidents carved on Mount Rushmore. The sign's message relates to the removal of the phrase "so help me God" from the official cadet handbook as well as the recent removal of a Bible verse from a cadet's personal whiteboard outside his dorm room. Richard Thompson is president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, which is a member of the coalition. Thompson tells OneNewsNow: "What we have is endemic to the entire military community, not just the Air Force but the Army as well and the Navy, where I believe led by people in the White House, they've taken an anti-religious but particularly an anti-Christian viewpoint."
The top item on the website of the Restore Military Religious Freedom Coalition is the widely debunked claim by Air Force Master Sergeant Philip Monk, whose silly lie about having been punished for refusing to endorse gay marriage has been repeatedly parroted by Tony Perkins and by Fox News reporter Todd Starnes.
