"When one proudly dons a U.S. Military uniform, there is only one religious symbol: the American flag. There is only one religious scripture: the American Constitution. Finally, there is only one religious faith: American patriotism."
MRFF Founder and President, Michael L. "Mikey" Weinstein

11/7/11 – First-Ever Americans United “Person of the Year Award” Goes to MRFF Founder and President Mikey Weinstein
At a luncheon today, Americans United will present awards to two people who have worked hard to preserve religious freedom for all.
Corwyn Schultz will receive AU’s Religious Liberty Award. As a high school senior last year, Corwyn had the courage to stand up to official, coercive forms of prayer at his graduation ceremony. A federal judge issued a temporary restraining order striking down the prayers, but unfortunately a higher court overturned it. The case, which is sponsored by Americans United, is ongoing.
Our second awardee is Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF). Mikey will receive AU’s Person of the Year Award, an honor we’ve never given before. He richly deserves it.
