Worship space for Wiccans

The U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado will set aside a worship space for followers of "Earth-centered" religions such as Wicca and Druidism.

A stone circle atop a hill on the base in Colorado Springs will likely be dedicated in a ceremony March 10, according to a news release.

The Air Force has been accused of allowing evangelical Christian officers to openly proselytize and pressure cadets of other faiths.

In 2005, the Air Force issued guidelines pledging to "accommodate free exercise of religion and other personal beliefs."
