“One day, like it or not, every knee will bend and every head will bow to the King of Kings.” (with MRFF response)

I think Mr Weinstein is forgetting that the Dutch and English settlers who landed at what is now the coast of Massachusetts  in 1620 were seeking real religious freedom and that their faith was Christianity as one of the books they brought with them was the Geneva Bible.

When Mr. Weinstein says that the only religion military members should have is American patriotism he’s forgetting that I, by the Constitution have a right to choose my faith and my religious symbol and my religious scriptures.

And in those scriptures Christ warned all who follow him that they will be hated for his name sake.  Mr Weinstein’s quote that was read on “the Five” is absolute proof of his personal hatred for the very idea of Christ.  But one day, like it or not, every knee will bend and every head will bow to the King of Kings.

“Trust But Verify”


“Trust”??,

I’ll use this as your nom-de-plume since you could not be bothered with providing a name.  Simple and in your case comically hypocritical.

Mikey is forgetting nothing.  You on the other hand exhibit the selective amnesia necessary to spout a blatant lie and Christian Dominionist dogma.  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.  96% of MRFF’s clients are Christians as well.

Yes you do have a right to choose your religious faith/symbol/scriptures … and if you’re a member of the U.S. Military you take an oath to support and defend a Constitution that protects every citizen’s right to the same.  If you are unable to constrain your personal faith in support of your sworn duty to the U.S. Constitution and what it stands for (i.e. protecting every citizen’s rights not just your own), then you obviously lack the moral clarity and fortitude required by a Constitution that creates a secular representative democratic republic.

I defend both my Christian faith and my Constitution proudly and equally.  I don’t feel the need to defend one at the expense of the other.  To do so would be both weak willed and immoral.

Mikey’s statement regarding the American Flag/Constitution/Patriotism accurately reflects the moral pecking order between any citizen/soldier’s chosen religion and the U.S. Constitution…deal with it.

Peace be with you,

Andy Kasehagen
