Daniel Blomberg, with The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, told Fox News he was glad to see the Dept. of Defense issue a clarification, but expressed alarm at the Air Force statement. “The Air Force spokesman’s statement sounds like the government can ban servicemen and women from talking to one another about their faith,” he said. “And that couldn’t be more wrong. The Air Force must follow the Department of Defense’s example to immediately correct its statement to avoid chilling Airmen and women’s religious liberty.”
