This was all gone over by our founding fathers... yes it was Joycey But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods or no God. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg. -Thomas Jefferson, Notes on Virginia, 1782
Hey brian Thank you for your service and sacrifice and ignore ignorant trolls like americathebeautiful Most like the child that responded to you is not a wounded vet and in what way does your comment reflect socialism or communism?
This guy is a big part of what is wrong with America,,,, Marc_H Wrote: 2 mins ago (9:52 AM) well floodie that explains the Foot Hood Shooter.... If I could dismiss him as just an ignorant troll, it would be fine. I would think he just has the mentality of a child and is spouting nonsense he does not believe just to annoy people. but the problem is he actually believes the garbage he just wrote. His maturity level says making fun a posters chosen screen name is an adult way to discuss a topic. is that really the way mature American males are supposed to react? Then he brings up the FT hood shooter? Why? Would saying or NOT saying this oath when he commissioned have made a difference? the Islamic terrorist was a mass murderer who thinks it is ok to kill innocent unarmed men and women in cold blood but if he had said "so help me God" even though he didn't believe in God or the oath, then he wouldn't have shot those people. The complete and total inability of people like Marc to make an intelligent comment on a topic is a large symptom of what is wrong in this country. That complete and utter inability to have an intelligent discussion of the topics of the day is a much bigger problem then a couple of Airman not saying "so help me God" when they volunteer to serve their Country
The other branches already allowed the "so help me God" line not be used. Only the AF tried to mandate it and that was recently changed because they used to not require it
What is the point of swearing. If you cannot swear an oath on someone or something you base your entire world on ................ They do it swear based on something they put their entire world on. themselves What is the point ins wearing on something you do not believe in. If you are an atheist, saying "so help me God" adds about as much to the path as would saying "so help me rock" or "so help me unicorn"
1) this article is not about SOLDIERS 2) If the Airmen are people of faith, they still can say So Help Me God, so what is the problem?
I spent 21 years on active duty in the Army, 17 of which I was an Officer. I always said "so help me God" but it was NOT mandatory in the Army. If you think future generations are going to suffer because we allow Airman religious freedom the same way we allow Soldiers, Sailors and Marines religion freedom, then you are a big Gov Statist
Why couldn't he or she? You do believe in Freedom of Religion right?

Helps if I don't hit post comment to soon Dyadd, I think a per capita rebate for the damages inflicted by decades of very corrupt ineffective government would be more informative and attractive. Again you and I agree that if we cut Gov Spending enough we could start paying down the Debt and return to Americans a "per capita rebate for the damages inflicted by decades of very corrupt ineffective government" but the liberal mindset does not work that way. They would see a Romney or Koch brother getting the same rebate and a reduction in tax also and yell. They literally want to damage others who have much more than them rather than help themselves. Example, I know a nice school teacher in CA. She had her class of elementary kids write me letters about sacrifice while I was deployed to Iraq and send care packages. She leads her personal life in a conservative manner , is into raising sheep and is a good Christian who regularly attends church (You know I am not a Christian) But she LIKES big Gov. She wants more EPA, more education spending, more help for the poor etc. If you tell her that shutting down or limiting those big gov programs means she gets a few thousand from the Gov in a rebate or lower tax rate for herself she would say "NO keep those programs". I simply point out there are a lot of people like her. She cares about her country and is a good person, but she has a differing view of what is in the best interests of the country. I think she is wrong and tell her often with facts and logic and often humor but she has a differing opinion.
