7. "Some NON-religous cadets ... felt ostracized"?!?
Lessee if I understand this:
Air Force Academy = state
Team Jesus Christ = church
Wall of separation = null and void
Thus, American = Christian
non-Christian = non-religious
non-Christian = un-American -- ??

That's where this logic very quickly takes you.

Are there no Jews at the Air Force Academy? Unitarians? Hindus, Sikhs, or Buddhists? Do those in charge at the Academy consider these cadets NON-religious? Are they out of line if they complain about exclusion in this branch of "the state"? Does this affect their future in the military?

Inquiring minds want to know.
