You Sir, Hate Christ Jesus !

Dear Mikey,

I pray this day, The Lord God expose you to the public for who and what you really are.

You hate Jesus Christ with a passion. For, your god is the devil. Jesus Christ is LORD forever.

Your sir, are a man FULL of hate. The Lord rebuke you this day.

Dear (name withheld),

The MRFF leaders and staff are awfully busy working to protect the religious freedom of the men and women in uniform, so I’m taking the liberty of responding to your message in their stead.

I hope you don’t mind, but I’m going to just quickly point out a couple of areas of confusion from which you seem to be suffering. After that I’ll just tag on another message from one of your Christian brethren in the hope it will help you understand just how mistaken you might be.

First, you need have no fear, God is doing a fine job of letting the public see the importance of Mikey and the MRFF and the work they are doing. Most of the public is not as confused as you are, but then most don’t get their information from the kind of biased sources you do. Mikey’s god is not the devil, nor is he full of hate. And he certainly doesn’t hate Jesus. Nor does anyone else associated with the MRFF, most of whom are Christians. But we don’t care what belief system someone subscribes to, just as long as they don’t attempt to force it on others.

As regards your wish (or was it a command?) that the Lord rebuke him, perhaps you’ll learn something on that score from one of your fellow believers who sent the below message:

Dear (name withheld),

I am a Christian (Episcopalian in fact) who fully supports Mikey’s and MRFF’s attempt to protect members of the U.S. Military from unconstitutional religious influence in relation to their training, assignment, advancement and retention. Your ridiculous accusation of hate so lovingly encased in the bile of your email says so very much about your particular beliefs as a self identifying Christian.

The language employed by Mikey in his writings is a forceful calling out of Christian Dominionists and Fundamentalists (which has proven to be exceedingly effective) intent on using the military as their personal playground for proselytizing to an audience controlled by the UCMJ and Lawful Orders from their commanders. Mikey’s and MRFF’s language is a conscious choice to use some of the same language many Christian Dominionst and Fundamentalists consistently deploy against many who happen to disagree with either their proselytized message or their perceived non-existent right to spread it in a strictly government controlled setting.

As a Christian supporter of MRFF, I truly enjoy efforts to proselytize to everyone here at MRFF. In this private setting, it is both appropriate and appreciated. I have the freedom (as do you) to demonstrably agree with your message, disagree with your message or totally ignore with no chance of repercussions. If on the other hand your proselytized message was being delivered to me in a government controlled situation where your official capacity was superior and mine subordinate, your message becomes immediately oppressive due to the loss of my freedoms as listed above.

Should fundamentalist of other religious faiths engage in the same type of activity within the U.S. Military, MRFF’s response will be exactly the same. You should also be aware that MRFF fully supports the military chaplaincy role in its passive (i.e. without proselytization) ministrations to the religious needs of all U.S. Service Members of any faith.

Peace be with you,
Andy Kasehagen

No (real) christian would work for such a cause. Many are christian by name only. You, sir, sound like a “token christian” for Mr. Weinstein’s efforts. The following is a small excerpt from the Wikipedia article:

Following the Fort Hood shooting, Weinstein suggested that proselytizing by “fundamentalist Christians” may have created a hostile environment that contributed to the psychological pressure on Major Nidal Malik Hasan. Hasan reportedly claimed that he had faced harassing insults related to his Arab ethnic background and Islamic faith.[13] In November 2009, the American Family Association issued the statement “No More Muslims in the US Military”, which explicitly stated that Muslim military enlistees be barred from military service in the United States armed forces on the grounds that “…just as Christians are taught to imitate the life of Christ, so Muslims are taught to imitate the Prophet in all things. Yesterday, Nidal Malik Hasan was simply being a good Muslim.” [14] MRFF founder and president Mikey Weinstein ‘s denunciation of the AFA position as “bigoted, racist, [and] vile” was featured prominently by Hatewatch, the official blog of the Southern Poverty Law Center civil rights organization.[15] Mainstream Jewish groups generally declined to comment on the shooting at Fort Hood.[16]

This excerpt from Wikipedia says alot about Mr. Weinstein. How can any man sympathize with Malik Hasan? Weinstien calls christian evangelism “spiritual rape” ! How vulgar!

Your family was not murdered, sir. Mr. Weinstein ( very subtly ) ACCUSES those “fundamentalist Christians” ! My next letter is going to the White House.

Dear (name withheld),

…and no real Christian makes a proclamation that is only left to the Lord. Your gutless attempt to proclaim yourself Christian above others is exactly the type Fundamentalist horse crap that Mikey’s use of traditional Christian Dominionist/Fundamentalist language has so effectively called out of the woodwork. You can’t stand the fact that someone would use the language you traditionally use for non-Christians or for those who are not the right kind of Christian.

Unlike a self-proclaimed Christian such as yourself, and yes I’m a self proclaim Christian as well since there are no other kind, I’ll leave the verdict of your proclaimed Christianity to who I believe in rather than to someone with such unmitigated gall and so very willing to usurp his authority.

Peace and luck be with you before Christ,
Andy

Dear Andy,

“luck” ?? What has luck to do with Christ? All I’m really saying, from one christian to another :

The Great Commission
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Follow man, or Christ. You choose. I did NOT say force people. Just give them a chance to hear the gospel. Not like some religions…. who cut your head off if you don’t convert. NO man can come to the Christ unless the Father drawn him. God must be in conversion or it’s false.

Have a good day.

Dear (name withheld),

You make the following attempt to be reasonable:
“I did NOT say force people. Just give them a chance to hear the gospel.”
…which MRFF has no problem with since opportunities to hear the gospel are clearly not limited to members of the U.S. Military at times when they are under control of the UCMJ and Lawful Orders.

But then you run off the rails:
“Not like some religions…. who cut your head off if you don’t convert.”

Taken together, your position clearly constitutes reductio ad absurdum (Reduction to absurdity; In logic, a method employed to disprove an argument by illustrating how it leads to an absurd consequence). Are you really implying proselytizing pursuant to The Great Commission should be allowed up to decapitation? Is that your acceptable level of force? This ridiculous reduction of your argument against Mikey and MRFF’s activities generates such questions.

As with all Christian Dominionist/Fundamentalist living under our representative democracy, you have constructed a ridiculously false dichotomy by selectively choosing among biblical instructions to support a non-existent right to proselytize under strictly controlled government settings such as the U.S. Military. Also from the Gospel of Matthew:

5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

Am I proud as a Christian that Judeo/Christian heritage and morality played a truly significant role in development of the U.S. Constitution & Bill of Rights? You better believe it. However, by adoption of the Constitution, we as a nation from that point forward agreed to be bound to each other under a democratic Man’s Law (as determined by our representative democratic processes) rather than a theocratic Divine Law (as interpreted by clerics or self-proclaimed believers). I defend both my Christian faith and my Constitution proudly and equally. I simply don’t feel compelled to defend one at the expense of the other like so many Dominionist and Fundamentalists do.

This is why I will continue to support MRFF’s efforts to keep the ridiculous false dichotomy (Follow Man or Christ) of Dominionists and Fundamentalists from adversely affecting a U.S. Military sworn to uphold our collective (all faiths) Constitution.

Andy
