"[T]he Air Force is developing a culture that is hostile towards religion"

The letter from 66 Republican members of Congress referenced a series of cases where they claim the Air Force “succumbed” to demands from outside groups.

Among the incidents:

A decision to remove a Latin reference to “God” from a logo/motto for the Rapid Capabilities Office
A decision to stop requiring staff to check for Bibles in Air Force Inn rooms
The removal of a document from a distance-learning course for Squadron Officer School that suggested chapel attendance is a sign of strong leadership
The suspension of an ethics course because the material included Bible passages
