A group advocating the separation of church and state is trying to send a message to President Obama about religion in the military ahead of the president’s June 2 commencement address at the Air Force Academy.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation has erected a billboard behind the graduation stage and is planning to fly an aerial banner during the ceremony. The billboard reads, “Welcome Mr. President To Our AF Academy. Why is Jesus Commander In Chief Here?”
Mikey Weinstein, who founded the group, said religion has no place in the armed forces.
