“The Pentagon has… confirm(ed) that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: ‘Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense... Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis’…Check out the virulence on show at Weinstein's own Huffington Post blog:
The statement… follows a Breitbart report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith…
Weinstein, the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, says Christians, including chaplains, sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military are guilty of ‘treason,’ and of committing an act of ‘spiritual rape’ as serious a crime as ‘sexual assault.’ He also asserted that Christians sharing their faith in the military are ‘enemies of the Constitution’…
So President Barack Obama’s civilian appointees… are confirming that the military will make it a crime… for those in uniform to share their faith. This would include chaplains… whose duty since the founding of the U.S. military under George Washington is to teach their faith and to minister to the spiritual needs of troops who come to them for counsel, instruction, or comfort.”
"Let me tell you of monsters and monstrous wrongs. And let me tell you what these bloody monsters thrive on. I founded the civil rights fighting organization the Military Religious Freedom Foundation to do one thing: fight those monsters who would tear down the Constitutionally-mandated wall separating church and state...
Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation's armed forces. Oh my, my, my, how 'Papa's got a brand new bag.'
These days, when ANYone attempts to bravely stand up against virulent religious oppression, these monstrosities cry out alligator tears in overflowing torrents and scream that it is, in fact, THEY who are the dispossessed, bereft and oppressed. C'mon, really, you pitiable unconstitutional carpetbaggers?
It would be like the utter folly of 1960's-era southern bigots howling like stuck pigs in protest that Rosa Parks' civil rights activism is 'abusing' them by destroying and disenfranchising their rights to sit in the front seat of buses in Montgomery, Alabama. Please, I beseech you! Let us call these ignoble actions what they are: the senseless and cowardly squallings of human monsters.
Queasy with the bright and promising lights of the cultural realities of the present day, those evil, fundamentalist Christian creatures and their spiritual heirs have taken refuge behind flimsy, well-worn, gauze-like euphemistic facades such as 'family values' and 'religious liberty'...
The basis of their ruinous unity is the bane of human existence and progress: horrific hatred and blinding bigotry. However, when the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and others correctly characterize them as 'hate groups,' they all too predictably raise a deafening hue and disingenuously bellow mournfully like the world class cowards they are...
Monsters abound... We MUST vigorously support the continuing efforts to expose pathologically anti-gay, Islamophobic, and rabidly intolerant agitators for what they are: die-hard enemies of the United States Constitution. Monsters, one and all. To do any less would be to roll out a red carpet to those who would usher in a blood-drenched, draconian era of persecutions, nationalistic militarism, and superstitious theocracy...
If these fundamentalist Christian monsters of human degradation, marginalization, humiliation and tyranny cannot broker or barter your acceptance of their putrid theology, then they crave for your universal silence in the face of their rapacious reign of theocratic terror. Indeed, they ceaselessly lust, ache, and pine for you to do absolutely nothing to thwart their oppression. Comply, my friends, and you, too, become as monstrously savage as are they. I beg you, do not feed these hideous monsters with your stoic lethargy, callousness and neutrality. Do not lubricate the path of their racism, bigotry, and prejudice. Doing so directly threatens the national security of our beautiful nation.
In the stirring words of Elie Wiesel, 'The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.'
Your indifference now to 'Papa's brand new bag' will surely reap the whirlwind as a consequence for the United States of America and its military defenders."
Is this someone you'd elect as a Guardian of our religious freedoms? He isn't, is he? He's off his trolley. And yet he has a top table position in the Pentagon. And other top table types are paying a lot more attention to him than they are to us or America's Christians.
I wonder why he was chosen to do what he does? I wonder why Barack Obama placed his faith in this foam-flecked nutcase?
'Michael L. (Mikey) Weinstein, Esq.' describes himself as an 'Attorney, Author, Civil Rights Activist, Founder and President of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation,' at the above blog.
He doesn't mention his Jewish ethnicity.
P.S. Nasty-looking f***er, isn't he?
