A national group that monitors the separation of church and state says it may sue the Air Force Academy.

The group, americans United for Separation of Church and State, claims the academy allows evangelical Christians to harass cadets who do not share their faith.

The group says it conducted a two-month investigation that included contacting about 15 cadets and staff, and has sent a report to Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld.

An academy spokesman declined comment. Air Force spokeswoman Lieutenant Colonel Amy Rogerson said today the report had not yet been received and she could not comment on its contents.

She said the Air Force has confidence in steps taken by the academy to address the problem of religious intolerance.
