An activist group is taking aim at the U.S. Air Force Academy for allegedly favoring Christianity over other faiths, with plans to erect a billboard in Colorado Springs, Colorado, air a 15-second TV ad and hire a plane to run a banner in the skies that asks a controversial question about Jesus.

The campaign is being waged by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation — a group devoted to the separation of church and state — and it comes as President Barack Obama plans to visit the Air Force Academy on June 2 to speak at commencement, the Air Force Times reported.

“Welcome Mr. President To Our AF Academy,” the billboard reads. “Why is Jesus Commander In Chief Here?”

Military Religious Freedom Foundation president Mikey Weinstein said in a statement that the U.S. Air Force Academy has not been keeping the separation of church and state in check.

“The United States Air Force Academy’s adhering to the constitutionally guaranteed right of separation of church and state in the U.S. military is a train wreck,” he said.

Weinstein continued, “The Military Religious Freedom Foundation has been in literally countless fights with USAFA since February of 2004. MRFF currently represents 414 cadets, faculty and staff at USAFA, of which 372 are Protestant or Roman Catholic.”

Watch the TV spot below:

The billboard will be displayed from May 23-June 5. As for the airplane, it will show a message that reads, ”WHY IS JESUS COMMANDER IN CHIEF AT USAFA? MRFF.ORG” on May 31 and June 1 — and the 15-second TV spot will fun 1,322 times from May 27-June 2 on MSNBC, CNBC, CNN and Fox News, according to the statement.
