KOOL Question of the Day

The US Air Force has told a sergeant he will have to leave the military unless he agrees to take an oath with the phrase "so help me God," officials said Tuesday. 

The atheist airman was denied his request to re-enlist, last month, because of his refusal to swear to God. 

With the deadline for re-enlisting expiring in November, the technical sergeant at Creech Air Force base in Nevada -- whose name has not been released -- will be forced to sue the government in a federal court. 

In the past, an airman could opt for an alternative phrase and omit the words "so help me God," but the US Air Force changed its policy in October 2013. 

The other branches of the American military do not require the reference to God and make the phrase optional.

 

The "KOOL Question of the Day" is:

"Should the airman have to say "so help me God" to re-enlist?"

Yes

No
