Revised Air Force Religion Policy
- "Jesus" Still Prohibited

The United States Air Force has released interim revised guidelines for religious expression. Some praise the revised policy while others recognize that the "inclusive" policy still forbids prayers that mention "Jesus" specifically.

"They want prayers, but no religious beliefs. Huh? Non-religious prayers?" was Navy chaplain Lt. Gordon Klingenschmitt's response. "These new guidelines are a sham, they're deceptive, they're not new at all, and they still prohibit prayers 'in Jesus name' and authorize commanders to exclude chaplains who pray 'in Jesus name' solely based on the content of their prayers."

Air Force still no-Jesus zone? - New guidelines have some Christians cheering, but others say chaplain-prayer muzzle remains
