Michael Savage's hateful rant against
Mikey Weinstein and MRFF
On August 3rd, Michael Savage devoted four minutes
of rabid idiocy
to attacking Mikey Weinstein and his family.
Our decisive role exposing the "Jesus Loves Nukes" story has resulted
in an extraordinary
torrent of vicious threats and hate mail in this week alone.
Here are two examples of this recent influx of hate mail:
For a group that preaches tolerants in relegious freedom and
from relegion. I would have to say you people are the least tolerant,
in seeing other
peoples points of view."
"The Constitution: 'High-brow propaganda' for 'fools'"
"You've been so enamored by high-brow propaganda as to be motivated to
education out of the government."

"Mr. Weinstein and MRFF,
I am a Catholic soldier in the U.S. Army. Throughout my career in the army, I have come up against difficulties when trying to practice my Catholic faith. On almost every occasion in which I have made a request for religious accommodation my request was ignored and, many times, treated disrespectfully by a corrupt and uninformed chain of command. Moreover, the general mentality and approach taken by leadership in dealing with religion and requests for accommodation has ALWAYS been that "one size fits all". Unfortunately that "one size" has been a form of ‘fundamentalist', Protestant Christianity that shows disdain for any need to go somewhere to pray, to ‘attend' a Mass, or to ‘see' a priest, or to respect
events and encounters as ‘obligations'."

Save the Date: Mikey Weinstein to be first-ever
recipient of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State "Person of the Year" Award
"We've never named a 'Person of the Year' before, but I can't think of anyone more deserving than Mikey Weinstein,"
said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United. "Time and again, he has stuck his neck out to
defend the religious liberty rights of the men and women serving our country in the armed forces."

MRFF Needs Your Constant Vigilance to Uncover
Unconstitutional Religious Incursions in the Military
The constitutional violations occurring in our military are so numerous and widespread
that we can't possibly find all of them ourselves. MRFF counts on its supporters and volunteers --
the indispensable "eyes and ears" who alert us to everything from the most egregious of constitutional
violations to articles we might be interested in.
So, keep the emails coming, and never think that anything is too insignificant or assume
that we might already know about it. You never know -- you might have stumbled into the
of a story and not even realize it.
And don't forget that you can join the discussion by posting
your own comments on every story on our website!
