Putting God’s name on the motto of a government-funded institution is deeply offensive to nonbelievers, those who believe in many gods, those who believe in the Goddess, those who refer to their deity or deities by another name and, frankly, anyone else who appreciates church-state separation.
It seems there is no limit to the minute, inane issues that get the Religious Right all hot and bothered.
On Feb. 6, 36 members of Congress -- including Congressional Prayer Caucus Co-chair Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) -- sent a letter to Air Force Chief of Staff General Norton Schwartz in protest of the removal of "God" from the Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office (RCO) logo.
In their letter, Forbes and his allies said “The action taken by the RCO suggests that all references to God, regardless of their context, must be removed from the military. We ask that you reverse this perplexing decision.”
Who's force is it any way it don't belong to any one mythical being but the people of the state.
I sincerely hope the religious dominionists get swarmed by small annoyances like this. From all sides and persistently.
