Four years ago, the situation regarding religious freedom at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs could only be described as grim.
An air of evangelical Christianity permeated the facility. Cadets were encouraged to see films like "The Passion of the Christ." During a training session for cadets, an Aca demy chaplain urged evangelicals to convert their classmates to their brand of Christianity. He told cadets that those not "born again will burn in the fires of hell." Non-Christian cadets complained of harassment and intolerance.
