Earth religions get worship area at Air Force Academy

February 02, 2010

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. - The Air Force Academy in Colorado has set up an outdoor worship area for followers of Wicca, Druidism and other Earth-centered religions. A double circle of stones atop a hill on the campus near Colorado Springs has been designated for cadets and other service personnel in the area to practice Earth-centered faiths. The school also has worship facilities for Christians, Jews, Muslims and Buddhists. Academy superintendent Michael Gould has made religious tolerance a priority. It became a concern after a 2004 survey of cadets found instances of harassment.
