6/26/14 COLORADO SPRINGS INDEPENDENT – AFA stirs more religion debate

Selected Article Excerpts:

  • We asked Mikey Weinstein, a 1977 academy grad who founded the MRFF, which is NOT anti-Christian, by the way, to respond to this, so he did, in usual Mikey style, calling the petition signers “blind sheep”:
  • The American Family Assn. (AFA) and the Family Research Council (FRC) yet once again immeasureably disgrace and wound our nation’s beautiful Constitution with the transparently bigoted and ignoble submission of their pitiful petition of fundamentalist Christian tyranny and oppression. They decry and scream like stuck pigs of nonexistent prejudice at the Academy against Chrstians. They lie, they cheat, they steal and they contort the truth as they always do. If they wish, let them gather millions of additional names of religious extremist bullies for their pathetic petition of shame. Indeed, it won’t make a lick of difference at all. As former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor once said, ‘In America, we don’t count heads before enforcing the First Amendment.’ Pursuant to that very same Constitution, it’s contruing Federal and State caselaw and the Pentagon’s own internal regulations, directives and instructions, publicly displaying a sectarian bible verse next to your cadet name, cadet rank and cadet squadron postion, in the busy thoroughfare of military working common areas such as the cadet dorms, is simply unconstitutional and wrong. In fact, it is blatantly illegal irrespective of how many Christian fundamentalist, blind sheep EVER sign any petition from hate groups like the AFA and FRC.”
