One of the first of many ironies one discovers when stepping across the line to swear an oath to uphold, defend and protect the Constitution, is exactly how many of those rights are given up in the process.
Have we become sick enough of the political correctness that has invaded our military by gutless paper pushers at the Pentagon?
It appears the United States Air Force has had a change of heart about banning the use of the phrase: “Have a blessed day.”
The controversy originated at Robins Air Force Base in Georgia when a visiting member of the military objected to a guard at the gate telling people as they were cleared for entry to “have a blessed day.” That individual took his complaint directly to Mikey Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, an atheist group, which then notified the base. Base leaders then told the gate guard to cease his greeting.
The American Family Association and others brought the matter to the public’s attention on Thursday.
Reports say the U.S. Air Force has now lifted the ban. Ron Crews of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty told Fox News this morning the USAF has issued a statement that says: “Upon further review and consultation, the Air Force determined use of the phrase ‘Have a blessed day’ as a greeting is consistent with Air Force standards and is not in violation of Air Force Instructions.”
