Connor Calls on Graham to Restore Shaw AFB Nativity Scene
Statement of Bill Connor
Republican Candidate for US Senate
Orangeburg, SC- “I am very concerned about the Air Force’s decision to remove the Nativity scene at Shaw Air Force base for two Constitutional reasons.
The first is the obvious example of ‘religious viewpoint discrimination.’ Growing up on military bases and during my active duty career,I know firsthand just how much of a family’s surroundings are determined by regulations. Those rules are designed to promote a proper military culture not to force a political agenda. The regulation sited in this case is:
Air Force instruction 1.1 section 2.11. ‘Government Neutrality Regarding Religion. Leaders at all levels must balance Constitutional protections for an individual’s free exercise of religion or other personal beliefs and the Constitutional prohibition against governmental establishment of religion.‘
The obligation to ensure that military families serving and working have religious expression rights falls to the members of the House and Senate not Pentagon bureaucracy or even, for that matter, the President.
I would like to know where Senator Graham stands on this issue. On this issue involving the military, freedom, the Constitution and his home state, his uncharacteristic silence is puzzling.
Maybe Senator Graham should spend less time criticizing the Egyptian military’s supposed violation of Egyptian constitutional freedoms and a little more time making sure that the American military and their families, for which he has real oversight responsibility, can exercise US Constitutional freedoms.
As a constitutional conservative, a combat veteran, and a South Carolinian, I am asking Senator Graham to take action to restore the Nativity scene at Shaw Air Force Base. Senator, you have the power and responsibility to make this right. It’s time to act.
