US Air Force admits to quietly changing a regulation that now requires all personnel to swear an oath to God -- Airmen denied reenlistment for practicing constitutional rights

The Air Force said it cannot change its AFI to make "so help me God" optional unless Congress changes the statute mandating it.

Miller pointed out that Article VI of the Constitution prohibits requiring religious tests to hold an office or public trust.

"Forcing [the airman] to swear to a supreme being as a condition of his reenlistment is tantamount to a 'religious test' and is therefore violative of this constitutional provision as well," Miller said
