USAF Major General In Hot Water For Publicly Acknowledging God

Capture (16)

During a recent National Day of Prayer speech, U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Craig Olson expressed the influence he believes God has had in his life and over his career. In addition to merely sustaining him through many dangerous missions, he gave God credit for his professional successes:

He put me in charge of failing programs worth billions of dollars. I have no ability to do that, no training to do that. God did that. He sent me to Iraq to negotiate foreign military sales deals through an Arabic interpreter. I have no ability to do that. I was not trained to do that. God did all of that.

  1. A group calling for action against someone is often just a group looking for headlines. I’m close to being an atheist and i wouldn’t ask for this General to get grief from anyone about his speech.

    If he made a call out to non-believers or tried to exclude people based on belief I’d be concerned. Nothing I’ve read makes me worry about MGen Olson.

    This leaves little question that Satan is in charge of this government.
    My career as a US Navy officer is similar to MGEN Olson. I enlisted as a seaman recruit in 1946 and retired as a LCDR in 1972. -RLPartridge, LCDR, USNR (retired)
