A giant cross was placed on the new Pagan altar at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs in what was characterized by Military Religious Freedom Foundation‘s Mikey Weinstein as

nothing short of a despicable, cold and calculated hate crime of the most serious magnitude.

The circle of stones set aside for Pagan worship came about through the efforts of Tech. Sgt. Brandon Longcrier with the support of Academy chaplains and received a lot of press–because well, it shows the Air Force is tolerant and accepting. In theory. By the brass.

The Air Force Academy has worship areas set aside for other faiths. How long before this sort impunity and disrespect spill sover into acts against Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and Jews there?

Weinstein–who has been in touch with Academy superintendent Lt. Gen. Michael Gould–says

MRFF has been advised that official investigations are underway to try to ascertain who committed this act of religious hatred, and precautions are being put in place to ensure that the chances of something like this happening again are very small…It is MRFF’s reasonable expectation that every person who lives and/or works at the Air Force Academy will be swiftly debriefed as to (1) the specifics of what has, sadly, just transpired, and, (2) that there exists an absolute ‘zero tolerance’ policy for such disgraceful and cowardly acts of religious ambush.

Those who placed the cross are probably going to feel repercussions from a Higher Source.  Jesus preached tolerance and um, there is that presky Threefold Law…
