(CNSNews.com) – As President Barack Obama’s nominee for Air Force secretary, Deborah Lee James, testifies before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday, senators need to confirm if she is committed to protecting the religious liberty of members of the Air Force, many of whom are facing religious persecution by their own commanders, said Lt. Gen. (Ret.) William G. “Jerry” Boykin, the executive vice president of the Family Research Council (FRC).
“My biggest concern is where she stands on religious liberty in the military because the Air Force has a particularly egregious problem right now,” Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Boykin told CNSNews.com.
