Military Religious Freedom Foundation president Mikey Weinstein is demanding that the Air Force punish an overseas commander for telling an official interviewer last month that Christ “is my guide and affects all of my decisions.”
Lt. Colonel Michael Kersten, 39th Medical Support Squadron Commander of the Incirlik Air Base in Turkey, was responding to a question about his biggest inspiration for the “Meet your leadership” section on the installation’s website. Kersten explained that, in his estimation, Jesus “teaches to do all things as unto the Lord and I believe this is synonymous with integrity first and excellence in all we do.”
At one time faith was an major part of military life with chaplains going along with the troops and now with the willing cooperation of this administration christian religion is under attack.
