Air Force FIRES BACK Against Charges on 2 Star General Using God in Speech

On May 7, Maj. Gen. Craig Olson stated at the congressionally supported National Day of Prayer Task Force that God guided and strengthened his career, and without God’s help, he wouldn’t have been able to fly aircraft or execute nuclear missions, Air Force Times reports.

According to a spokesman for the service, Lt. Col. Pete Hughes, Olson did not breach Instruction 1-1 dealing with the exercise of religion.

“His remarks were his own personal opinions and do not represent the views of the United States Air Force,” Hughes told Air Force Times.

That decision didn’t satisfy the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.

Commenting on the National Day of Prayer controversy, Rev. Franklin Graham, a prominent evangelical Christian leader, said in a Facebook post that “this group would’ve tried to court martial George Washington when he prayed at Valley Forge! Come on — whose civil liberties are really being infringed on here? They want to bully Christians into silence.”

I understand this will come as an embarrassment for a few who spoke out of their butts as though they were super informed and knowledgable. Your thoughts and comments, pls

I think Mr. Graham said it best. “this group would’ve tried to court martial George Washington when he prayed at Valley Forge! Come on — whose civil liberties are really being infringed on here? They want to bully Christians into silence.”

It's a rarity for any progressive to say they were wrong about anything.And radical atheists are about the worst for not backing down, when they're proven wrong.

Exactly! And yet some airhead ranted on and on about how unconstitutional his actions ere, even calling for apologies when proven wrong. Problem: HE was proven wrong. An apology? Nebba happen!

I did my own poll question on this subject around a week ago.

This Atheist 'Freedom Foundation' group calling for the two-star general to be court-martialed and "aggressively and very visibly brought to justice for his unforgivable crimes and transgressions." was some of the most over the top hysterical rhetoric I have seen in a while.

Good response. The Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. The athiests need to get over it!

I'm glad to see that some fringe Atheist 'Freedom Foundation' group can't bully the Air Force into Court Marshalling someone for practicing their free speech rights off base.

I'm kind of disappointed that the Air Force didn't respond with a barrage of 1,000 pound JDAMs on the MRFF's command post. That would've been an appropriate, cost-effective, civil response.
