"God" incorrect?

"Allah" too?  No.  That would be freedom of religion

The U.S. Air Force directed a military base to remove a video tribute to First Sergeants because it mentioned the word ‘God’ and might be offensive to atheists or Muslims.

The tribute was created by a chaplain at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. The chaplain wrote a poem titled, “God Created A First Sergeant.” It was later adapted into a video with a narration.

The video was modeled after the Dodge Ram Super Bowl commercial titled, “God Created A Farmer.”

“On the eighth day, God looked down on His creation and said, ‘I need someone who will take care of the Airmen,’” the tribute read. “So God created a First Sergeant.”

Chaplain leadership at the base signed off on the project as well as other base officials and earlier this week the video was posted on YouTube. But it was soon taken down after other officers objected.

“Proliferation of religion is not allowed in the Air Force or military,” wrote the chief of the Air Force News Service Division in an email I obtained. “How would an Agnostic, Atheist or Muslim serving in the military take this video?”

An Air Force spokesperson told Fox News the video was removed for a legal review.

A source with knowledge of the incident tells me that the video was made to simply honor First Sergeants. The chaplain had written the poem several months ago and it was recently turned into a multimedia presentation.

The video said G-d, not Jesus. So why would the Muslims have a problem with that? The armed services in the USA are becoming atheist as the Russian military is becoming more Christian. Flip Flop time. The pos Obama is the center of angst in this country and the cause of all this Godless b.s.

The armed services should be neither theist or atheist - which is to say religious attitudes are not relevant to the function of the US military, even if they are in muslim and communist countries.

Part of the Muslim-in-Chief's plan when being elected POTUS was to feminize and weaken the US military by filling it with gays, females, and handcuffing it with politically correct rules. It's working just fine.

There are hundreds-of-millions of people around the world who are both mystified and horrified at what the weak, gullible, and quite dumb people of America are allowing to happen to their country.

I would imagine that an agnostic wouldn't care, an atheist would consider it a waste of time, and a muslim would have no problem with it.
So, can it go back up now?

A godless armed service has a more likely hood of firing on their own citizens.
