Last week, on the heels of the release of the alarming statistics on religious harassment at the U.S. Air Force Academy, the Academy held a religious respect conference. Who wasn't invited to this religious respect conference?
The statistics on religious harassment, from the Academy's bi-annual "climate survey," were only made public after a demand from MRFF and a number of other organizations, both religious and secular, who signed onto MRFF's letter to the Secretary of Defense.
One of the most serious issues highlighted in MRFF's letter (an issue that would have been addressed at the Academy's religious respect conference if MRFF had been invited) is the problem of fundamentalist Christian ministries being given free reign over Academy cadets -- particularly a ministry called Cadets for Christ, described by the parents of several cadets recruited by this ministry as a "cult."
Under the influence of Cadets for Christ, one recent Academy graduate is now completely estranged from her family. Why? because they are Catholic, and therefore unsaved according to Cadets for Christ founders Don and Anna Warrick.
