Air Force Academy Says Religious Climate Improving
Academy superintendent Michael Gould says the changes are the result of a topdown campaign to foster respect and accommodate even nonbelievers.
A task force concluded in 2005 there was no overt discrimination by evangelicals but said the academy didn't accommodate the religious needs of some cadets and staff.
Mikey Weinstein, a vocal critic of the school, agrees things have improved.
His Military Religious Freedom Foundation has fewer than 10 active cases of cadets or staff with complaints about religion, down from a high of more than 70 in 2005-2006.
