In the midst of a furor over the removal a Bible verse from a cadets white board, the Air Force Academy now claims that it was done ‘voluntarily’ and only because the cadet was in a leadership position. Here’s the story from the Blaze:

Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Michelle D. Johnson said in a statement provided to TheBlaze that she is “pleased” with the way cadets at the academy have “raised and discussed a recent concern” over the issue, going on to offer the school’s account of what unfolded.

“A religious scripture was displayed outside a dormitory room belonging to a cadet who held a leadership position in the squadron,” Johnson said. …

Rather than an attack on religious adherence, Johnson explained that the verse was removed after considering the cadet’s leadership role at the academy. She also indicated that the move was voluntarily made by the cadet following discussion over the issue. …

he superintendent said that the situation provided a learning opportunity for cadets at the Air Force Academy and added that the key to solving and exploring complex issues like this is being able to openly discuss and analyze them when they arise.

Johnson said that she is proud that cadets at the academy have been exploring how to balance religious freedom with “caring leadership that inspires all subordinates.”

Response: One thing for sure, this is not the response that Mikey Weinstein and his anti-Christian organization- ‘Military Religious Freedom’ is pushing for. Furthermore, the Superintendent not only doesn’t mention Weinstein’s group but seems to be tolerant and even pleased with the way the cadets have responded to the controversial situation. Either that or Gen. Johnson is a master of how to react under pressure.               *Top
