Academy chapel to add outdoor circle to worship areas

The Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs sits in the foothills of the Rockies, a beautiful area. The Chapel is a great building and a tourist attraction.

Take a look at this article on the US Airforce Academy: Earth based religions get a Circle at the US Airforce Academy in Colorado.
What is most interesting are the the comments below the article on the US Airforce site. I am pleased to see how many military men & women chimed in with support. It was inspiring to see those in the military, who may disagree with or disapprove of paganism as a valid religious path, supporting the rights of others to worship in their own ways. But then these are the folks who put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms so it shouldn't surprise any of us that they would "get it". Of course there are a few radical Christians who find the whole thing offensive. Patience wins out. Be sure to click on the related stories link and read the comments there as well.
