MRFF CALLED OUT BY
Mikey Weinstein Strikes Again
Sour grapes abound as Constitutional advocacy
yields positive results
vs. Christian extremist dominance
Wednesday, August 13, 2014
Selected Article Excerpts:
- On these pages over the past several years, I have written numerous times about the mischief caused by Michael "Mikey the Whiner" Weinstein, Esq., the founder and president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation ("MRFF"), a decidedly anti-Christian group. While completely ignored by the Pentagon during the presidency of George W. Bush, he has been given an open door by Mr. Obama's civilian leaders at the Pentagon and sycophantic generals and admirals. You may recall that several years ago, Mikey Weinstein stated that U.S. troops who proselytize for their Christian faith are guilty of sedition and treason, and should be punished, by the hundreds if necessary, to stave off what he called a "tidal wave of [Christian] fundamentalists." Of course, there is a small, pesky issue raised by the First Amendment to the Constitution, but I digress.
- *Admiral Bianchi's directive came after MRFF filed a formal complaint over the placement of Bibles in the Navy hotel rooms. *
Of course, our Lord Jesus had a hard time getting a room at the inn, and now, His Holy Word will no longer be welcome either. It seems to me that if the MRFF doesn't want to see a Bible in the Navy hotel room, they can simply leave it in the drawer. In 2012, the U.S. Air Force tried to remove Bibles from its hotels and lodgings, but reversed its decision after great public outcry. If you wish to contact Admiral Bianchi, or his deputy, Michael Bockelman, to ask him to reinstate the Bibles in Navy hotel rooms, please call 1.757.631.3600 or 1.757.502.7496
MRFF ACTION ALERT: We ask all supporters of religious freedom in the military to call Admiral Bianchi at the above phone numbers to express our sincere thanks that he
continues to stand by the U.S. Constitution
*NOTE: In 2012 MRFF succeeded in forcing the DoD to remove official U.S. Military emblems from the Holman Military Bibles being sold in military base exchanges worldwide. However, for the past seven and a half years, MRFF has also been fighting for the removal of the Gideon Bibles from all service branches' installation Lodges. We have received literally hundreds of these specific complaints from MRFF clients every year about the unsolicited planting of these Gideon Bibles. Obviously, we believe strongly that MRFF's years of aggressive advocacy to remove these Gideon bibles from armed forces base lodges aided in the removal of these Bibles following the formal complaint about this particular Navy Lodge by the FRFF. We sincerely applaud the positive role played by our allies at the FFRF in the
fight for Constitutional compliance and religious freedom within the
United States Armed Forces*

"We would be just as angry if there was a Quran or a Torah or Richard Dawkins' 'The God Delusion,'" in the bedside tables of these Navy lodges, said Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.
