Air Combat Command removes posters after complaints of sexism

Tuesday, February 28, 2017

Officials at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, have removed several posters after receiving complaints that the faith-based messages were sexist, according to the Air Force. 

Several posters at Air Combat Command headquarters had faith-based messages and only referred to male, not female, airmen, prompting complaints from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation and the National Organization for Women.

[...]

Earlier this month, the command received a complaint from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, but Singleton said the complaint focused on the religious nature of the posters.

“[The complaint] was dismissed because the display does not endorse, disapprove of, or extend preferential treatment for any faith, belief or absence of belief,” Singleton said.

However, the original MRFF complaint, and a Feb. 9 letter from Tobanna Barker, the foundation's legal affairs coordinator, did in fact address the posters' "message of male superiority." That message of male superiority was not only offensive, but violated Air Force regulations, Barker wrote. [...]

"...group of hysterical feminists who got their

Faith-based posters removed from Langley Air Force Base display
after feminist uproar

Tuesday, February 28, 2017

The Air Force has removed several “faith-based” posters from a display at Langley Air Force Base to appease a group of hysterical feminists who got their pantyhose in a twist over what they called “sexist, male-supremacist language.”

[...]

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation fired the first shot on the "faith-based" poster – demanding it be removed because it was an endorsement of religion.

"This message undoubtedly expresses a preference for airmen of religious faith over those who practice no religion," MRFF founder Mikey Weinstein wrote to General Carlisle. "It not only states that men cannot even LIVE without faith, it questions the loyalty, strength, and sacrifice of non-religious airmen by stating that only men of faith are willing to make necessary sacrifices, as well as that faith is "our only safety."

But the Air Force dismissed the MRFF's concerns -- and that's when the feminists got involved. [...]

Posters at Langley AFB
removed after objections

Monday, February 27, 2017

Posters at Air Combat Command headquarters at Langley Air Force Base that prompted complaints from The Military Religious Freedom Foundation and the National Organization for Women have been removed, the foundation's president said Monday.

Letters of protest from both organizations pointed to language on the posters that were taken from a 1955 Air Force manual that favored airmen of religious faith over those who don't practice religion, and were deemed sexist.

MRFF COVERED IN THE "OXYMORONICALLY" NAMED AMERICAN THINKER

RE: CHRISTIAN DISPLAY AT MARINE CORPS RECRUIT DEPOT SAN DIEGO (MCRD SD)

Firing the 'diversity'
bullet at the Marines

Tuesday, February 28, 2017

Dying in foreign lands in the service of a nation that enshrines freedom of religion in its Constitution doesn't cut any mustard with the irreligious left.

Alarmed by the presence of a crèche complete with three Wise Men last Christmas on the grounds of the U.S. Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has joined forces with the oxymoronically named Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) to put the camp's commanders in hot water.

Headed by Mikey Weinstein, the activist who breaks out in hives at any observance of Christianity at the nation's service academies, the MRFF on January 17 sent a letter asking Marine Brig. Gen. William Jurney – commander of the boot camp and the Western Recruiting Region – to agree to allow religious displays of other faiths to be erected near the crèche. [...]
