BANNED IN MILITARY!!!

Do the Bible and nuclear military training mix? Some U.S. Air Force members and their supporters say “no way.”

Following debate, the Air Force has suspended a course that was taught by chaplains for more than 20 years after complaints that class material included Biblical passages. CNN reports:

The course, entitled, “Christian Just War Theory,” used passages from both the New and Old Testaments to make the case to missile launch officers that going to war can be a moral choice. The Christian Post sheds more light on the course’s controversial contents:

A PowerPoint presentation obtained from the course referenced scripture verses such as Hebrews 11 to show that people of faith can and have engaged in war, in a section entitled “War and Faith.” The section also cited biblical figures including Abraham, Samson and David as religious figures that fought wars in a righteous manner…

The course also taught ethical principles such as a “win at all costs will cost you.“ A nuclear ethics section encouraged trainees to consider the deadly power of nuclear weapons and ask such questions as ”Can you imagine a set of circumstances that would warrant a nuclear launch from the U.S. knowing that it would kill thousands of non-combatants?”
