We need your help in calling on the Air Force to reverse its decision to remove a Latin reference to "God" from a logo after an atheist group complained.
But after the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers complained, the line was rewritten in Latin to read, "Doing Miracles with Other People's Money."

“Doing Miracles with Other Peoples Money.”
The Air Force seems to be going to hell in a handcart, I’m sad to say.
- Put out my hand, and touched the face of Obama.
What will a godless military do while at war?
Since they caved to atheists who apparently have more power than God, let the AF depend on the atheists for miracles and protection. We’ll see how long that lasts.
Signed the TAKE ACTION NOW at bottom of link. Thank you for posting this and may God protect them
The poem, High Flight, has over the years become a mantra to pilots.
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long delirious, burning blue,
I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew -
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face

Now, in the case of the prohibition on Chaplains, they are attacking another prong of that Amendment--freedom of speech.
Then, there is this removing the word God from the patch.
Enough already! During the Revolutionary Period, the pulpit in America was resounding with the ideas of liberty, motivating "the People" to assert their Creator-endowed rights, and to reject the ideas of tyranny, no matter how they were cloaked.
They have been late to the battle of late, but now, they have been awakened.
In this particular case, the assault has come on just one doctrinal belief of one major faith group. Rest assured, though, that people of faith from all sects will be able to discern that if the assault can be framed as "women's health and contraception" today, it can be against any number of deeply-held beliefs and practices tomorrow.
James Madison declared: "Although all men are born free, slavery has been the general lot of the human race. Ignorantthey have been cheated; asleepthey have been surprised; dividedthe yoke has been forced upon them. But what is the lesson? ... the people ought to be enlightened, to be awakened, to be united, that after establishing a government, they should watch over it ... It is universally admitted that a well-instructed people alone can be permanently free."
Did they get the Judaean rebel from "The Life of Brian" (Romanes eunt domus!) to write the Latin?
Okay, this is just wrong on so many levels.
... a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you, you will experience an epiphany ... and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama - Barack Obama Lebanon, New Hampshire.

Thank you, CitizenM.
