Focus on the Family Questions Air Force Religion Guidelines

By  | 

Focus on the Family is asking its supporters to ask President Bush to revise new religious tolerance guidelines issued by the Air Force.

The conservative Christian group says on its Citizen Link Web site to ask Bush to restore the right to religious expression in the Air Force.

On Monday the Air Force issued guidelines discouraging public prayer at official functions and urging commanders to be sensitive about personal expressions of religious faith.

The guidelines were drawn up after allegations that evangelical Christians wield so much influence at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs that religious harassment became pervasive.
