A Republican lawmaker accused his Democratic colleagues of “denigrating and demonizing Christians” for seeking an amendment backing religious tolerance at the Air Force Academy. Rep. John Hostettler (R-Ind.) addressed the comments to Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) on the House floor Monday during a discussion of an amendment that would chastise the Colorado Springs school for “coercive and abusive religious proselytizing” and called for a congressional report within two months on a plan to improve religious tolerance on campus.
