Weighing in on Religion: The 2007 defense authorization bill, passed late before the Congressional recess and sent to the President on Oct. 5, has two directives related to religion, one to the Air Force and one to the Navy.

The Navy must “rescind” a recent religious ministry instruction and reinstate its older policy. Is it back to square one?
