Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

An open Bible placed at a Peterson Air Force Base major's workstation has drawn demands for its removal from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.

In response, Peterson officials removed the Bible and now are conducting a review of whether allowing it was a reasonable accommodation of the officer's religious beliefs or whether it violates the separation of church and state.

MRFF Demand Letter to Colonel Feltman


STATEMENT BY
MRFF's FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT
MICHAEL L. "MIKEY" WEINSTEIN, ESQ.

"The 310th 'Space' Wing is NOT called the 310th 'Space For My Personal Proselytizing Christian Bible Shrine' Wing for a damn good reason."

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

"The 310th 'Space' Wing is NOT called the 310th 'Space For My Personal Proselytizing Christian Bible Shrine' Wing for a damn good reason. Major Steve Lewis has created an around-the-clock Christian Bible Shrine on his official USAF workstation desk that has been in prominent static display for YEARS. The pages in his open bible on his USAF desk never change, ever. Thus, it is obviously there as a religious display to promote to others his Christian faith. This sectarian display is a disastrous travesty which completely serves all too well as an absolute textbook violation of Air Force Instruction 1-1, Section 2.12 as well as the No Establishment Clause and No Religious Test Clause of the United States Constitution. MRFF is very pleased that, pursuant to MRFF's specific demand, this bible has expeditiously been removed from Major Lewis' desk pending the the ongoing Commander Directed Investigation which MRFF also demanded. In my nearly 12 minute call with the 310th Wing Commander, Colonel Feltman, yesterday, he promised me that he would be open and fair in all of his dealings on this matter with MRFF and its 33 clients at Peterson AFB and Schriever AFB. We will hold him to his word. So far, MRFF has been impressed with his honesty and responsiveness."

Air Force Officer Under Investigation After Years of Keeping an Open, Highlighted Bible on His Desk

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

If a lance corporal was said to be out of line for putting unlabeled Bible verses all over her workspace, then surely having an open, highlighted Bible at your desk is even worse.

That's what Major Steve Lewis at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs has done for the past several years, and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation is now trying to put a stop to it.

Air Force officer faces investigation over Bible on his desk

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation is demanding an Air Force major be "aggressively punished" for having an open Bible on his desk at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colo.

"It [the Bible] is very obviously a statement of Christian preference, Christian primacy," MRFF founder Mikey Weinstein told me. "Had that been the Book of Satan or the Koran there would be blood in the freaking streets."
