DENVER (AP) -- A Bible verse on the door of an Air Force Academy cadet's dorm room has touched off a constitutional debate.
Mikey Weinstein, director of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said Wednesday that the message on a white board amounted to a cadet in a position of authority forcing an opinion on subordinates. Weinstein says he received complaints from cadets, and might file a lawsuit to ensure church-state separation on campus.
The academy says the issue was resolved earlier this week when cadets decided to erase the message.
But Mike Berry of the Liberty Institute says the right to post such messages is a matter of religious freedom. Berry's institute says it fights to defend religious liberty, and Berry says he plans to take up the matter with the academy.
