American Muslim yesterday reported on objections that have been raised to the invitation extended by the Chaplain's Office at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point to retired Lt. Gen. William "Jerry" Boykin to speak at the Academy's Feb. 8 National Prayer Breakfast. Boykin has a long record of anti-Muslim statements. Both the Military Religious Freedom Foundation and VoteVets have written officials urging that the invitation be retracted. According to Thursday's Washington Post, a West Point spokesperson has reacted to the criticism, saying: "The National Prayer Breakfast Service will be pluralistic with Christians, Jewish, and Muslim cadets participating. We are comfortable and confident that what retired Lt. Gen. Boykin will share about prayer, soldier care and selfless service, will be in keeping with the broad range of ideas normally considered by our cadets." God and Country blog also has a report on the controversy.
