A U.S. Air Force Officer Trainee is demanding that he not be forced to recite an oath that contains “so help me God” during  his graduation ceremony tomorrow.

Attorneys with the American Humanist Association’s Appignani Humanist Legal Center, working with the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers, have sent a letter to administrators at Maxwell AFB in Alabama outlining the reasons a forced statement of god-belief is not constitutional, including numerous court cases upholding the right of those who object to oaths with religious language to take a secular version instead.
