An Obama Nation: US Air Force Drops ‘So Help Me God’ From Oaths

Given all that has happened and continues to happen under the Obama Administration, I do not believe that this was a simple “editorial oversight” for a minute. We cannot expect God to keep His hand of protection upon a nation when the nation wants nothing to do with God …

Job 20:4-5, “Surely you know how it has been from of old, ever since mankind was placed on the earth, that the mirth of the wicked is brief, the joy of the godless lasts but a moment.”

By Todd Starnes, Fox News – “The Air Force Academy has admitted they removed the phrase ‘so help me God’ from three oaths in the 2012 edition of their official cadet handbook, Fox News has learned.

The revelation came after more than two dozen members of Congress sent a letter to Academy Supt. Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson demanding that she explain why the phrase was removed.

The lawmakers contend the 2012 edition of the Contrails Cadet Handbook excludes the phrase ‘so help me God’ in the Cadet’s Oath of allegiance, the Oath of Office for Officers and the Oath of Enlistment.

‘The Constitution does not require that this phrase be scrubbed from the oath,’ read the letter drafted by Rep. Jim Bridenstein (R-Okla.) and signed by 28 lawmakers. ‘The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the establishment of religion’ however, the inclusion of the phrase ‘so help me God’ in an oath of service does not rise to this level.’

Bridenstein said ‘editing the oath for all Academy students is extreme and unnecessary, and does a disservice to the countless individuals who wish to include the phrase as a solemn reminder that they are pledging their fidelity to God and country.’

Air Force Academy spokesman Maj. Brus Vidal told me the omission was a simple mistake.

‘It was an editorial oversight,’ he said. ‘We learned within the last few weeks there was a problem.’

Vidal said there was no reasoning behind the omission and there was no forethought.

‘Whoever was doing the editing didn’t catch it,’ he said.

He said next year’s edition of the Contrails Cadet Handbook will be revised and will include the phrase ‘so help me God.’

Last month, the Air Force Academy was embroiled in another controversy involving ‘so help me God’ after they decided to make it an optional part of the Honor Oath.” Read more.

    This rumor that has been going around that Obama is a communist seems to be more than just a wild rumor, or a “conspiracy theory”. You’ll know them by their deeds.
