Your Religious Freedom Mission

Dear Mikey,

How fast would a CHRISTIAN been brought to trial

after murdering 13 soldiers?????

Maj. Nidal Hasan

The Fort Hood shooting was a mass murder that took place on November 5, 2009 at Fort Hood near Killeen, Texas.

In the course of the shooting, Major Nidal Hasan, a Muslim, murdered 13 people and over 30 people were injured.

It is the worst shooting ever to take place on an American military base

It’s difficult to believe in your mission.

Dear (name withheld),

Your question is easily answered if you had bothered to spend more time with a little research and less time attempting to construct a Christian victimization meme.

Army Sergeant John M. Russell

On May 11, 2009, five United States military personnel were fatally shot at a military counseling clinic at Camp Liberty, Iraq by Army Sergeant John M. Russell. In the days before the killings, witnesses stated Russell had become distant and was having suicidal thoughts. Russell was charged with five counts of murder and one count of aggravated assault. Officials stated there was an argument at the Camp Liberty Combat Stress Center and Russell was being escorted back to his unit at Camp Stryker when he took an unsecured M16 rifle from his escort, drove back to the clinic, and opened fire on unarmed personnel.

An Army sergeant was sentenced Thursday (5/16/2013) to life in prison without parole for the 2009 killings of five fellow service members at a combat stress clinic in Iraq. A military judge, Army Col. David Conn, found Sgt. John Russell guilty of premeditated murder on Monday (5/13/2013) and imposed the sentence Thursday morning. and

(note: I could find no reference to a professed faith, or lack thereof, for Sgt. Russell. Based upon recent media standards, my logical assumption is that he is not a self-proclaimed Muslim.)

Maj. Nidal Hasan

The judge, Col. Tara Osborn, also reconsidered and again denied Hasan’s request to plead guilty in connection with the November 2009 attack on the Texas Army post. The judge set the next hearing for May 29, [2013] when Hasan is to enter a plea. Osborn said jury selection would not begin until all pretrial issues had been resolved, which would be May 30 at the earliest.

If you had taken the time to engage your brain between your uncontrollable attacks of ideological flatulence and incontinence, you could have answered this question yourself. Looks like a very similar time frame to me in these two particular cases. However, a rational individual (something I’m not accusing you of being) would also know that the time frame for any judicial action, civil or military, is extremely subjective due to an infinite number of circumstances.

As a Christian (Episcopalian in fact), I fully support 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. This includes all attempts at proselytizing any religious belief within the military structure. MRFF also 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.

Your belief in MRFF’s mission is every bit as relevant as your research capabilities. In other words, it’s meaningless.
