Yet MORE Persecution of Christians!

Who would have guessed it!

The whole deal at the Air Force Academy?

Yep! It's us intolerant Lefties out to persecute the Christians again!

Here's what Dobson's group had to say about it, specifically:

Focus on the Family, an evangelical ministry in Colorado Springs that had called criticism of the academy unjustified, said in a statement, "We fervently hope that this ridiculous bias of a few against the religion of a majority - Christianity - will now cease."

And over there on that nifty new blog where the Red State Folk are trying to act like they're not loons, they've got this to say:

If you've been paying attention, you are aware that the Air Force Academy was under investigation for the insidious influence of James Dobson and other Christians groups near the AFA's campus. According to a complaint made by a lutheran chaplain at the AFA, students were being intolerant of other faiths. The investigation cleared the Academy.The lefty secularists have lost a fight. Good!

Yep. That's right. It's not that a Pentecostal chaplain was encroaching on the rights of cadets who had no power to object, or that a commander was forcing his cadets to swallow his own particular prejudices about which God and what religion was acceptable (not the Jewish God, and not the Catholic one, either, and heavens to Betsy not that Muslim fella!), and it surely isn't that religion per se was being forced on anyone -- oh no!

(Among the incidents highlighted in the report were fliers that advertised a screening of "The Passion of the Christ" at every seat in the dining hall, more than 250 people at the academy signing an annual Christmas message in the base newspaper that said that "Jesus Christ is the only real hope for the world" and an atheist student who was forbidden to organize a club for "Freethinkers." )

Pay no attention to these silly reports!

The point is, it is Christians (not atheists or Jews or anyone else) who are being persecuted here! Yes, persecuted!

Because if anyone -- ever! -- objects to ANYTHING a Christian does, EVER, then that Christian is being persecuted.

As much as though he and his wife and his sweet little twin toddlers were being devoured by hungry lions while the Romans threw ripe peaches and evil taunts at them. Just exactly that same way.

What don't you understand about this?
