In his blog, "The Barr Code," Barr states that the AFA's installation of a pagan worship circle is "truly hilarious." He goes on to state, "[I]f I were in the Air Force and was being commanded by an officer who practices hedonism as a religion (another part of the definition of “pagan”), and who dances around a circle of stones in the woods carrying a lighted candle, I would be more than a little worried about following him into battle."
That rant inspired commenter "Sean Burke" to quip, "As opposed to a belief that a great man in the sky produced a human son through virgin birth who can be consumed every seven days in the form of wafers and wine? The fact I voted for you in 2008 now embarrasses me."
According to Sgt. Brandon Longcrier, who heads a pagan group on the AFA campus, the blog post has created quite a stir locally. There are well over 200 comments on the blog post.
