FEATURED INBOX POST: “M. Wienstien,” with responses

Dear Military Religious Freedom Foundation,

Mikey Wienstien is an enemy to American people. I will die for Jesus Christ and fight for Jesus Christ. I fought for this country for freedom. Not for people like Mikey to steal it. Mikey will fall like the coward him and his family is. If he thinks he’s gonna win then he will soon be crushed like the Nazi regime he supports. He is the same as a child rapist or adolf Hitler. You will never take god from us. This country was founded on it. Watch as you fail.

Dear (name withheld),

A funny thing happens when you mix arrogance with ignorance in bigots of all stripes, including raging Anti-Semites like yourself, they project themselves, their ignorance along with their own evil tendencies, on those they choose to harass or harangue. In your case you are clearly a Nazi-loving Anti-Semite who no doubt wishes Hitler had been successful in wiping the Jewish race off the face of the earth, and yet you call Mr. Weinstein a Nazi. Of course this surprises no one, because Anti-Semites, the morons they are, refer to Jews as Nazis all the time, often even stooping to blame the Jews themselves for the Holocaust. It’s just all a piece of the curse of their and your stupidity. Secondly, you equate Mr. Weinstein’s efforts to protect the religious liberties of honorable service members with that of rape; the irony is rich here because Fundamentalist/Dominionist Christians like you get off on engaging in the spiritual rape of others. People like you brought us the Crusades (which resulted in the genocide of whole communities of Jews), the Inquisition, endless Pogroms and ultimately, the Holocaust. It was radical, Fundamentalist Christians like you who taught the world to hate the Jews – even today the radical Islamic terrorists use the same Anti-Semitic canards and materials originally written by Christians like you.

Sir, it is you who are the defender of rapists – spiritual and religious rapists. You are the Hitler/Nazi sympathizer. You are the raging bigot, the Anti-Semite, and the ignorant ass fool who only knows how to project his own idiotic hatreds on those whom he has been taught to hate. So enjoy being ignorant, because that is all you’re going to know for the rest of your life.

And with that I am done with you. You’re not worth wasting another minute on. So go piss off you dickless coward.

Dear (name withheld):

When you send an email to [email protected], Mikey, Blake, the Board, the Advisory Board, volunteers and supporters are able to see it.

I am on the Advisory Board and an ordained minister in the Assemblies of God. I am going to show you more respect than you did to Mikey or deserve and respond to you the way a Christian responds to “the least of these.”

I hope to clear up to you the erroneous facts of what MRRF really does and is.

Mikey is the face of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) but 75% of the rest of us are Christians. If MRFF was anti-Christian in any way, we would have left a long time ago. Your words are libelous.

MRFF currently has over 34,000 soldier clients (1 represents over 100), from all branches of the military here and abroad; 96% of them mainline Christians and yes – some are Chaplains.

MRFF does not act on its own but at the request of soldiers’ complaints of the blatant disregard and trampling of the Constitution and the Military Code of Justice; blurring the lines between the separation of church and state. Every complaint is vetted by Mikey who was a JAG lawyer at the Air Force Academy for 10 years; worked in the West Wing under Ronald Reagan; and held positions in private practice. If you have a problem with what MRFF does, I suggest you take out your anger on the soldiers and tell them to let the military roll over their Constitutional rights and ignore military law.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof . . . “(1st Amendment)

“. . . no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.” (Article VI, Section III)

Our military is a government entity and must remain secular. Any person that wants to don the uniform of a branch of our military is free to do so with the express admonition from the Constitution to not exalt one religion over another.

We are not trying to rid our military of Christianity. What we are trying to stop is an extreme form of Christianity that believes they are the only true form of it and all other mainline Christians are not of the “right kind” or “born-again” and are going to hell. They are attempting to turn our soldiers into “Warriors for Christ” and that every war is a Crusade. They teach that they are to cleanse the world of all the wrong kind of Christians, those of other religions and those not practicing any faith, in order for Jesus to come back and reign for 1,000 years. This thinking throws out the entire book of Revelations where Jesus comes back with His ‘heavenly army” to conquer the world. Jesus never asked for an army on earth. He said “Blessed are the peacekeepers” not “Blessed are the warmongers.”

This extreme form of Dominionist/Fundamental/Evangelical Christianity is relentless in its in-your-face religious proselytizing to other soldiers by the military personnel all the way up to the Commander. They have usurped the office of the Chaplains. They have harassed, beaten, withheld advancements and drummed soldiers out of the military on trumped up charges, all in the name of Jesus. They believe in cleansing the military of all of those that do not believe in the sect they do.

US Army chaplain MAJ James Linzey, who, in a 1999 video, described mainstream Protestant churches as “demonic, dastardly creatures from the pit of hell “that should be “stomped out.”

Are you of this belief? If so, you have placed yourself above Jesus as God, judge and executioner.

I suggest you go to our website, click on “About” and then scroll down to “Foundation Voices.” It will be a real eye opener when you see the distinguished military personnel, politicians, a Noble Peace Prize winner, religious leaders and those from other walks of life.

And, btw, MRFF has been nominated for the Noble Peace prize 5 times, including this year.

I hope I have cleared up some of the distortions and lies that have been fed to you.

I will pray for you Carlos.

Dear (name withheld),

Mr. Weinstein has allowed me to respond, since he is busy protecting the religious rights of people in our military, including (and mostly) those who, like you, believe in Jesus Christ. Your email is pretty clear: You’ve been lied to. If, today, you were in the military, you’d find that your religious rights were being protected by Mikey, so that if, for example, your commander made it clear to you that you have to change your religious views to match his, whatever his were, or you would be in for serious trouble, Mikey is the one who would step in there and block that trouble. Likewise, while Mikey would fight for your rights, he wouldn’t allow you to push your religion on the next guy or gal. Their rights deserve equal protection.

Now, I don’t know who lied to you, but you are welcome to check the internet, read the articles and reports, and especially what Mikey, himself, says, rather than just believing the lying words that liars try to put in his mouth. You can also read letters from Christians whose rights he’s protected. There are quite a lot of them.

I am sorry you’ve been lied to, and I’m sorry whoever did it got you so riled up against Mikey. He is more honest and righteous than many, and he has the courage to actually stand up for others. I hope you will find and see the truth for yourself. When you do, you will be welcome to join us, as we risk all we can to protect Christians and others in the military who find themselves under threat for not being “the right kind of Christian.”

Dear (name withheld),

You may die for Jesus Christ if that is your choice. You may fight for Jesus Christ if that is your choice. If you have fought for this country and for freedom, that also was your choice. However, your message tells me that you have chosen to not understand anything about Mikey Weinstein and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. If you choose to lash out from a position of ignorance, you defile the God and the country to which you claim to be devoted. You see, the entire purpose of the work of Mikey Weinstein and the MRFF is to protect the right of all the members of our military to be free to accept the religious belieft – or non-belief – of their choice.

You are tragically mistaken in your belief that Mr. Weinstein is opposed to your religion or is trying to “take god from” you. He wants you to be free to have whatever belief system you choose, just as he wants every other person in the military to have that same freedom. What he and we oppose is having one particular religious belief forced on members of the military in violation of the law.

It’s really as simple as that. However, some of your co-religionists have twisted the facts and confused people like you into becoming so frightened and angered that they issue horrifying, anti-Christian statements like yours. It is a tragedy that you would so debase yourself and your god in such a way.

I hope you will take the time to think, perhaps to pray, and to actually look at the mission statement of the MRFF so you may come to your senses. Once you do, I suggest you do two things: 1) consider asking Jesus to forgive you for so traducing his teaching; 2) send an apology to Mr. Weinstein for this grotesque message.

Dear (name withheld),

I have not witnessed a more ignorant piece of garbage than your E-Mail to Mr. Weinstein.

Your misguided and overbearing religious beliefs have caused you to become as bad, if not worse, than the Taliban (Muslim Extremists in case you didn’t know.)

The real enemies of the American people are the ignorant and the uneducated. Judging by your lack of correct grammar usage and sentence syntax I would place you somewhere between drooling idiot and moron.

You are far more like Hitler and his Nazis than Mr. Weinstein could ever be seeing as six million of his people were slaughtered in the Holocaust.

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that each and every member of the armed forces receives the religious freedom guaranteed by the US Constitution. The US Government is forbidden by law from promoting or favoring one religion over another or religion over non-religion. Those in the military who illegally proselytize extreme Christianity will find Mr. Weinstein a formidable opponent.

Nobody took God from you. You scared him away with your brand of thinking. And if you fought for America it must have been in the Cub Scouts.

May I recommend that you seek mental help and try once again to be a rational human being?

Not only are you idiots the same as the revolutionary guard in Iran. I already told you you are just like Hitler trying to get rid of Christians I will make sure the vets who fought with me , unlike you, how you are trying to become the Nazi regime you resemble. You are a disgrace to America and those who actually fought for it, unlike you. You might want to think twice because you are going to be know by what you do. I’ll make sure to tell the vets what you are about. Unlike you I actually fought for freedom. You sit in your lil chair and get fat on doughnuts and soda. Believe me the ones who fight for this country really know you are the taliban, you are osama. You are doing what they did only in America. You are a true American enemy and coward. What you say has no merit because I know what I did for this country Dick. I kept your lil fat mouth safe. You are all words. But I will let my vets know who you are. Have fun being a coward. Dick lol

Dear (name withheld),

I am a former Air Force Officer and Rescue Pilot having served two combat tours in Viet Nam. I don’t need your uneducated mouth to remind me of the losers in our military. You are one.

However, thank you for your service to our country.

Ooo viet man so you lost the war. I see why your mad. Well I would run circles around you in your prime. I know and talk to real viet nam vets who have actually used their weapons. You can’t be mad cuz you lost the war, politics lost that war and that’s why you listen to Mikey like a puppet. I would net my life that the vets I have and still do talk to have done more in one tour then you have in your whole career beside you was an officer , you did nothing. Lol ok not funny but coming from some one like you it is. Look just admit you are a puppet of politics. The same kind that blamed you for losing the war. By the way if I was you I wouldn’t be so proud cuz you really didn’t come close to what I did

Dear (name withheld),

Thanks for your response.

I’d rather be a puppet of politics than a puppet of religion.

It wouldn’t take much effort on your part to check out our web site which has a lot of information and a number of letters like yours that we receive. Who knows maybe that info will change your mind.

Our helicopter in Vietnam was not armed and we had only side arms and not very good ones. But we made do and I completed over 600 rescue missions and just under a hundred insertion missions in two tours. Got shot down twice and suffered shrapnel wounds and carry a few pieces around as souvenirs.

Did you get wounded?

    Unfortunately what I have to say concerning MRFF is not good. I just read an article about your organization and a Chaplain in Alaska who wrote a column called There are no atheist in Foxholes. First I am not a practicing Christian, I believe people have the right to express their opinions without fear from any group, including yours. Unfortunately your organization goes above and beyond what is necessary to spread your views. The Air force removed the column but that was not enough for you and your organization, now you are calling for him to be reprimanded, to be punished, that is wrong and it is not the first time your organization has resorted to tactics like this. Your wanting to punish someone for being opinionated is hate and deserves to be looked at by other watch dog groups like the SPLC and maybe even the ACLU. When someone puts on that uniform such as I we did not give up our rights as American Citizens, we still have those rights protected under the First Amendment. I am in the process of getting together with other Veterans, including Atheist to come together and protect the rights of all our servicemen and women to stop people like you from punishing those in the military with calls of punishment for expressing their views.
