Air Force Suspends Ethics Class after Complaint

"Christian Just War Theory", a Christian-themed ethics class taught by chaplains for over 20 years, has been discontinued by the US Air Force.

The class was suspended after the Military Religious Freedom Foundation filed a law suit on behalf of Protestant and Catholic students and instructors who found the material violated church-state separation.
