First it’s the Boy Scouts, and now it’s Christians at Air Force Academies. The U.S. Air Force is now warning Christian Cadets that they need to tone down their faith and keep it private.
A survey taken by the academy revealed that non-Christians felt offended and coerced by Christians who are open about their faith. When I hear this, I immediately think the people who are offended by Christians are very intolerant people and need to get over their dislike of Christians. The Air Force sees it differently. They’re answer to this survey is to send the Christians to tolerance training. It seems the Christians need to learn how to be more tolerant of people who are offended by their faith and their presence at the school.
The chaplain at the academy even went so far as to tell the students they could no longer have Bible studies in the dorms! When a school starts telling students they can no longer read their Bibles because it will offend someone, it’s a scary time in America.
An invite to “The Passion of the Christ” was an example given by one of the offended non-Christians. When the Passion began showing in theaters near the academy a group of Christians invited this person to go see a movie. She said being invited made her feel coerced.
Let’s look at this another way. If someone invited me to go see Fahrenheit 911, I wouldn’t want to go and I would tell them so, but I wouldn’t feel I was being coerced because they invited me. Now, if they twisted my arm behind my back and forced me to go, then I could say they coerced me.
Discrimination of this sort only gets worse unless people speak up and shine a light on it. Christians need to wake up! If we remain silent as they take away our freedoms and rights, it will only get worse.
Homosexuals make up 1% of the population, and their cause is being discussed across the country. Legislation is being passed to protect their civil rights. Christians are a majority in this country, and our civil rights and freedoms are never discussed. In fact they’re being systematically attacked and taken away. The difference is, we don’t fight for our rights and promote our cause. That has to change.
