An artist whose painting was removed from an U.S. Air Force dining hall says the Pentagon is censoring Christian art.
Ron Dicianni's painting is called "Blessed are the Peacemakers" and references the scripture Matthew 5:9. It was part of a collection to honor the heroes who responded to the 9-11 terrorist attacks.
The painting was removed from Idaho's Mountain Home Air Force Base less than an hour after a complaint from Mikey Weinstein, the founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.
This is the same organization leader called religious proselytizing "a national security threat" in a private meeting with Pentagon officials last April.
The artist's son, Grant DiCianni, told Fox News, "On its face, this seems like nothing short of a clear anti-Christian agenda."
Grant DiCianni is also president of Tapestry Productions.
"It appears that the Air Force and the Pentagon have undertaken a dangerous war to rid the military of anything that points to Christ and that needs to be brought to light," he said.
