Hooray for tolerance in the military

The Air Force Academy in Colorado, known for its past discrimination against non-evangelical Christians, has added a worship space for Wiccans and other "Earth-based sprituality groups". (I'm assuming this means most neopagan groups, but I understand how tricky nomenclature can get.)

This is really good news. Traditionally, the military has been very good about respecting the beliefs of all of its members, but there have been issues in the past with neopagans, ranging from headstone markers to attempts to get an official neopagan chaplain. This is a good step forward. Thank you, Air Force.
