Re: Air Force Academy Builds Wiccan Shrine

by Jay Schalin

It may not be as outrageous as a Wiccan shrine at the Air Force Academy, but the University of North Carolina’s flagship campus recently decided to create a “meditation room” with a foot-washing basin for Muslim students. By itself, this action seems like no big deal; however, given that this is the same school that discontinued putting Christmas trees in its libraries three years ago because they were potentially “offensive” makes it a little troubling. When you throw in the 2002 controversy over Carolina requiring its incoming freshmen to read a version of the Koran that was scrubbed of its more alarming aspects less than a year after 9/11, it’s not hard to figure out which way the wind blows in Chapel Hill.
