Basically a “Piss Off”

And BRAVO to them for sticking to their guns!

Air Force Will Not Remove Holiday Display

Travis Air Force Base has decided they will not remove or relocate a Nativity scene and a Menorah in spite of a threat from The Military Religious Freedom Foundation.

“While we appreciate the concerns raised by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, the Office of the Air Force Judge Advocate General, upon review, concluded the inclusion of a Wing Chaplain sponsored Nativity Scene and Menorah as part of a broader, secular holiday seasonal display does not violate the establishment clause of the United States Constitution,” read a statement provided to Fox News & Commentary.

The MRFF had threatened to sue Travis Air Force Base unless they removed or relocated the holiday display currently located on a major thoroughfare at the military installation.

Imagine that! Baby Jesus gets to hang around in a manger for Christmas.

The world will probably end.

    Dear ACLU oops, MRFF-go pound sand.

    I realize the military can’t do this but we need a little more Andrew Jackson on some of these issues. His comment after a Supreme Court decision didn’t go his way; “They made their decision, now let them enforce it.”

    I’m curious – whose religious freedom is the Military Religious Freedom Foundation supposed to be protecting?

    I’m with aelfheld. Who is MRFF protecting? Let me get this straight, the big bad military members who are trained to kill the bad guys need protection…from a baby, him mom and dad, a donkey, and some farm animals?

    Don’t forget the wise men, Deborah. I’ll bet they are the ones the MRFF are most afraid of.

    Honest to some arbitrarily named supreme being, there are too freaking many busybodies in this country now. They’re like a plague of mice. Can’t we send them all to Egypt? The Egyptians would know how to handle them. They’ve had experience with plagues of mice before.
