Michael Weinstein of Military Religious Freedom Foundation looks set to be suing the Department of Defense “to make sure Defense treats religion neutrally, and that religious proselytizing is barred at all levels of the chain of command.” He evidently sued before, but the suit was thrown out “on a technicality” according to Mr. Weinstein.
Anyway, this article features an odd quote from the AF TJAG…
We believe academy officials performed properly and that this litigation is one important step in the direction in judicial recognition of that,” said Maj. Gen. Jack Rives, Air Force judge advocate general.
Odd because the quote purports to be the military “lauding” the dismissal of Mr. Weinstein’s case.
Whatever. I’m in favor of his stated purpose, but not sure the suit will get any traction.
