FFRF removes prayer from U.S. Air Force plane (March 8, 2013)

The U.S. Air Force has removed a “Commando Prayer” from the side of a U.S. Air Force aircraft, due to action taken by the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

A concerned service member contacted FFRF about the prayer. FFRF responded by sending the commanding Colonel a Feb. 25 letter asking for the prayer’s removal:

“Service members have the constitutional right to decide how or whether to observe religious practices,” Seidel said. “While non-Christians and nonbelievers are fighting to protect the freedoms for all Americans, their freedoms are being trampled upon.”

In a March 8 email, the complainant informed FFRF that the U.S. Air Force removed offending prayer.
