The Weinsteins Are The Air Force Academy Abusers

Mr. Michael Weinstein, we who represent the majority of USAFA graduates cannot help but notice what an evil pestilence you and your family have been to the legacy of our once proud Air Force Academy institution.
The simple truth of the matter is that there has never even been documented one single case of religious abuse at our Academy coming from Christians. The only abusers are you and your family and you target only Christians. Your Academy graduate children are all liars in one way or another. Your daughter-in-law Amanda and sons Casey and Curtis cannot prove they sufferred any prejudice at all. Nor can your son in law Mark. Nor can you. Either can anyone else there.
Noone has suffered except for Christians and at the hands of the Christian-hating Weinsteins and your MRFF henchmen. And you all are very good at hurting the followers of Jesus Christ at USAFA. Its’ a Weinstein family business and ‘tradition’. Which makes you all alot of money. Blood money. You all get your 30 pieces of silver just like Judas did. Makes you ‘heroes’ in the minds of America-hating liberals who stand for everything Jesus and our Air Force Academy fight against.
What is known is that your Academy graduate children have all joined you in attacking Christians at the Academy. Over and over again. Why you and your children hate the followers of Jesus Christ is not known. But your family’s actions of attack against Christians and only Christians is well known. And to think that your wife Bonnie and Amanda and your son in law were all raised as Christians makes the picture pretty clear. The one thing they all have in common is you, Michael Weinstein. Yes you Mr. Atheist with the big mouth. Know how much you are hated Michael Weinstein.
We pray for Jesus Christ to put a swift end to the Christian hate spree of you, your evil children and wife and the MRFF.
And don’t even think of replying. Your e-mails will all be rejected. Everyone knows how you and your anti-Christian MRFF cohorts gang up on anyone who writes in to express their love of our Savior. Or they’re oppostion to you. Just more Weinstein family and MRFF abuse of Christians. It’s the only thing you’re about.
May your remaining days on Earth be few and painful Michael Weinstein. May your time burning in hell be eternal.

> Dear Akademygrads4jesus –

> In addition to using a pseudonym, you refer to Nino Baldacci in your alleged email address. Of course, we both know Nino to be a beloved character from the annals of USAFA history. But were he a real person, he would no doubt object to your implicating him in your nasty, vile and ignorant missive, and I’ve no doubt that he would find it as offensive as I do.
>
> It is a vast understatement to call your email a ‘target rich environment’ for rebuke from a fellow USAFA graduate and Christian. There are so many things wrong with it that I’ll enumerate my response so we can see how many despicable and abhorrent items I can find (sort of like “Where’s Waldo?” but in this case more like “Where’s the Douchebag?”).
>
> 1 – The anonymous attack – As already mentioned, you have elected not to reveal who you are, which I find interesting and questionable. Interesting, because you seem proud of your opinions yet unwilling to attach your name. Questionable, because you imply that you are a group of at least 24 grads (based on the class years for which you claim representation) – but given your unwillingness to be recognized as individuals, it leads me to believe that you’ve merely pulled class numbers out of a hat (by the way, thanks so much for not grabbing 1985 – my classmates and I appreciate being excluded from your bigotry). In any case, you certainly don’t “represent the majority of USAFA graduates” as you claim – only a small minority of similarly small-minded misanthropes
>
> 2 – The bogus email – Similar to item 1, you choose to lurk behind a bogus email address. The fact that you say, “don’t even think about replying. Your emails will all be rejected” is disingenuous and misleading to those who will read your email at the MRFF website (where it is common practice to redact names and addresses). They will not know that you are being cowardly. Of course emails won’t go through – it’s a bogus email address behind which you hide. Again, makes me wonder why you are not willing to identify yourself and take pride in your work. You’ll note that I have included my real name below – I’ve no problem with other people knowing what I believe and the principles for which I stand. You, on the other hand, are spineless.
>
> 3 – The veiled threats – It is patently offensive and disgusting that you make specific reference, by name and multiple times, to members of Mikey’s family. Your intent is transparent – you mean for it to be threatening, as if to say, “I know you who are.” That you would stoop to such a level only confirms that you are without honor. And yet you claim to have graduated from the same institution that I did? Goes to show that some of the jetsam does manage to avoid being weeded out during those four years.
>
> 4 – The judgmental threats – You said, “May your remaining days on Earth be few and painful Michael Weinstein. May your time burning in hell be eternal.” Got it, you think you know the mind of God. Trust me, you don’t. So if you think you are hearing His voice please seek competent medical help immediately. Or if you are just feeling self-righteous, then I’d suggest you turn to Scripture for guidance. Matthew 7:1-3 would be a great place to start – “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?”
>
> 5 –The specious claim – You said, “The simple truth of the matter is that there has never even been documented one single case of religious abuse at our Academy coming from Christians.” Utter nonsense. My guess is that you don’t consider the numerous documented and verified cases of inappropriate Christian proselytizing at USAFA to be ‘abuse’ because you think such actions are dandy. Of course, you are on the wrong side of the US Constitution, along with your Dominionist cohorts who seek to imbue your sectarian beliefs into our military.
>
> 6 – Another specious claim – You also claim that Mikey and those of us who support the efforts of MRFF are Christian-haters. Not so. The vast majority of Christians in America are wonderful, kind, tolerant people… why would anyone hate such a person? On the other hand, those who dwell in the small, dark corner of Christendom inhabited by you and your Dominionist cronies are absolutely the so-called Christians that we actively oppose. Not because you claim to be Christians, but because you are intolerant, judgmental, dangerous and a very real threat to the Constitutional freedom of all military members.
>
> 7 – Yet another specious claim – You refer to Mikey as an atheist. On the one hand, I look forward to a day when people like you don’t feel comfortable to use that label as a pejorative label. Some of the most honorable people that I know do not profess a belief in God – and it’s not for me or you to judge them for their beliefs, we should be busy enough keeping our own lives in order. And after reading too many hateful emails from purported “Christians” the likes of you, I cringe at the thought that anyone would ever mistake you and I for being of like mind. If that were to happen, I’d rather be assumed an atheist. Nonetheless, Mikey considers himself agnostic and I understand that he regularly prays in accordance with the Jewish traditions by which he was raised. MRFF is not neither an ‘atheistic’ organization nor even anti-anything; we are pro-Constitution. If our efforts to oppose the misguided efforts by Dominionists to propagate inappropriate sectarian beliefs in our military rankles you and makes you feel we are atheistic or anti-Christian… that’s just tough.
>
> In my opinion, the sole redeeming value of your vile note is that it reveals to the world the true colors of detestable Dominionists such as you, and it also serves to strengthen the resolve of Christians like me to oppose your bigotry and intolerance.
>
>
> Normally, I close my correspondence by thanking the writer for his note and with a salutation of ‘Peace’, but I can’t do that in good conscience with you. Rather, I believe that I will go take a shower and try to wash off the stench of your revolting, contemptible email.

Dear “akademygrads” (or the troll who is pretending to be),

It is certainly appropriate that you use (email address withheld) as your email, this might indicate you probably didn’t graduate after all! Maybe you are a group of washouts? Have you seen Neno lately?

While somewhat a waste of bandwidth to reply, with your seething hatred blinding your eyes, let’s just point out a few things. You clearly lied when you took your oath (again, assuming you did) since you are a complete failure to support lawful orders and the Constitution of the United States. But, that is what Liars4Jesus do, isn’t it? You have adopted the idea of the wedge theory to disenfranchise anyone other than your particular flavor of Jesus loving “true patriots”. Your pathetic cries about being persecuted are wailed just because you think you are above the Laws of the United States.

You are clueless about the political and social antagonism that you cause when you proclaim (wrongly and without support) that America’s Armed Forces are airmen, sailors and soldiers for Christ. You aren’t any such thing. Never have been, and without changing the Constitution, never will be.

If the spelling, sentence structure and complete lack of knowledge of our founding father’s principles of worldly gentlemanly behavior are as indicated in your rabid rant – you are indeed doomed to forever aimlessly wander the trash bins of the Academy, in jealous misery of far more civil and enlightened officers. I still think you are a troll.

“Where the preamble declares, that coercion is a departure from the plan of the holy author of our religion, an amendment was proposed by inserting “Jesus Christ,” so that it would read “A departure from the plan of Jesus Christ, the holy author of our religion;” the insertion was rejected by the great majority, in proof that they meant to comprehend, within the mantle of its protection, the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and Mohammedan, the Hindoo and Infidel of every denomination.

In a sense, thank you for your letter. It gave me pause to do some more reading about the brilliance of the beginning of our country.

Alleged USAFA grad: You speak for the “majority” of us? Show me the stats, the way you expect others to show evidence.

Here’s the more disturbing trend I see in my alma mater, though: USAFA will apparently tolerate unchecked religious fundamentalism, as well as cheating, drug use, rape, and underage drinking. Maybe I was paying too much attention to my studies and training, but it seems to me that some egregious stuff has mushroomed, and at the same time as the evangelical imperium. You who claim the moral high ground, what good are you doing? None that I can see. You are doing harm, primarily by adding an unnecessary division within our incoming officer corps.

Nowhere in the Constitution is “God” mentioned. If you want to be an officer, you must swear an oath to the Constitution. If you want to be clergy, you may swear your oath to whatever conception of God is true to you. If the two oaths are in conflict, you need to choose, and sooner rather than later. There’s a reason Jesus distinguished between religious and secular obligations.

To you Onward Christian Cadets: Ditch the self-righteousness. Seriously, give it up. A very great lot of us are quite upset with what you’re doing to our Academy, and we outrank you by leagues. We will be your commanders. Sure, some commanders might be the likes of you–best of luck and figure it out. If it’s me, you’ll have to effectively hide your evangelism, else I lower the full weight of the First Amendment upon you. I rather expect you’ll mask your Constitutional subversion, keep quiet, and lie in the name of your own so-called truths, and the apostolic mission be damned. I’ve seen it, you hypocrites. Eagles thrive alone; hyenas need a pack.

Pick your path–God and Jesus, or America and all of its citizens. You self-righteous Dominionists have forced the choice. Not all Christians, myself included, ascribe to your idea of enforced religious orthodoxy. In fact, I am sad to note, as a USAF colonel and a PhD in history, that the most destructive wars in history have been started by your sort–the Self-Righteous No Matter What.

Fine, start your war. Just don’t expect approval or forgiveness here on earth, or in Heaven. Go ahead and wage war against people you think are “unsaved” or less “worthy.” Hey, it’s been a long while since Westphalia–let’s make this one a 50-years war, instead of a mere 30! Plenty of martyrs to be made! Go ahead and launch your Crusade. I only hope one of you has an inkling of what happened during the last one. But sadly, I doubt it.

This is the Word of King James’ Crappy Translators, Amen.

My name is Rick Baker. I’m a former Air Force Officer and rescue helicopter pilot having served two combat tours of duty in Vietnam. I am also an MRFF Volunteer.

I am writing today because I am shocked and disappointed in your recent e-mail to Mr. Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation which I had the displeasure of reviewing.

I always thought that a good Christian, like any other person of integrity, would have their own house in order before criticizing that of another person.

Yet you, like some other overbearing religious bigots, have undertaken a scathing critique of Mr. Weinstein and his family which, you have never met, yet condemn with the same vehemence as that directed at Mr. Weinstein.

The truth is that you are, in fact, the epitome of that which you accuse Mr. Weinstein; lying , abuse and prejudice.

Whether or not you allow this communication to be read it stands as an accurate portrayal of your actions. In addition, it is my feeling that your imprecatory prayers to harm an innocent family speaks volumes about your true nature and the hypocrisy of your false religious practice.

In reply to your imprecations re: Mikey W.

Nice screed posted to Mikey W. I have a feeling you already know that your views may not actually represent anything like a majority of USAFA’s graduates. I am only guessing, of course, though I am a graduate myself and remain in touch with many of my classmates, many of them Christian. One of my closest friends and classmates is a minister, just back from Uganda where his congregation sponsors a Ugandan school. That Christian minister certainly would not condone the email you wrote to Mikey W, or endorse the positions you claim as representing USAFA’s graduates. The Academy and our USAF have failed because Christ is under attack at these institutions and Mikey W is the demon in charge? Our football coach should lead prayers to Jesus as a hedge against rape or drug abuse? Or, taking the position further, you clearly believe that our military must believe in Jesus, or at least acknowledge His authority, to win wars!

Read C.S. Lewis. You’re are giving Mikey W way too much credit for thwarting God’s will. God can take care of His business without your help or Mikey’s.

Since you reference Nino Balduchi in your cyber-address, I’d expect you to be old enough to know that one’s own views or opinions should never be attributed without confirmation to the majority population. I suspect that grads4jesus represents mostly an echo chamber. Shout in a canyon long enough and the only voice you’ll hear is your own.

So here’s a countervailing voice. Among many ironies raised in your missive is this, that Mikey fights every day for people just like you, to voice opinions of all sorts. We are all entitled to opinions– but we are not to be taken seriously by distorting facts or offering prayers of damnation. Factually, you assert a basis for authority in our military that has never existed, and should not. The US Air Force is not Jesus’ Air Force, and should not be. Our Founding Fathers were for the most part Deists; many doubted Jesus’ divinity. Evangelics always quote the Declaration of Independence for its general reference to a Creator– as applicable to the Iroquois constitution as to our own. But the Declaration of Independence is not the founding document for the nation’s authority. That document is the US Constitution in which, significantly, there is no mention of Jesus or God. The Founders of course were clearly divided on many, many religious issues which is why the basis of the nation’s authority was formalized in its opening words; “We the People” are the only authority about which The Founders could agree. Puritans wanted a theocracy; others rejected that idea. Many modern evangelics want to pick an choose documents or Founding Fathers to make the claim that our nation, and be extension our men in arms, are divinely obliged and subordinate to Jesus’s will and favor. Some retreat to a general appeal for a special Jewish/Christian heritage. Left out are the Greeks, Romans, and the writings coming out of the Enlightenment.

Of course, those persons wanting to claim Christ as a basis for national destiny or authority have to either ignore or expunge a lot of factual statements from Founding Fathers that contradict that narrative. In Texas, a recent non-elected board responsible for making recommendations for high-school textbooks demanded that Thomas Jefferson be excised from those texts– just downright irritating to have a Founding Father who openly disparaged the notion of Christ’s divinity, let along any special place for Christianity as the basis for Constitutional authority.

Thomas Jefferson is hard to get around, of course, and so is often reviled. Harder to revile is the author of “Common Sense”, Thomas Paine, who famously rejected any religious basis for Truth or authority of any kind. Paine actually reviled the idea of divinity or virgin births, or hell or heaven. Interestingly, Paine did not reject the idea of a creating God; he did entirely discredit the several claims of Christ’s birth, divinity, etc along with a general critique of any appeal to Faith as a basis for Authority. See his “Faith and Reason”. John Adams is associated with treaties that contain contradictory language regarding religion’s role in society, though most scholars point out that his ratification, with virtually the entire US Senate, of the language ( drafted by a clergyman ) in the Treaty of Tripoli is a later and more explicit rejection of any claim for “any” Christian basis for Constitutional authorities (plural) than the generic invocation of Trinity and Divinity that open the Treaty of Paris with Adams’ and Franklin’s signatures. George Washington’s Masonic associations are generally swept under a revisionist rug.

There is a middle ground in this discussion. Historians can certainly find that Jewish/Christian thought permeates our society, but that does not in any way make Christ a basis of right or might in our nation’s government OR in its military. We the people decide when to take arms, and against whom. It ought to be evident that God is invoked on both sides of every trench. Every politician in two World Wars claimed God’s authority. Our own claim to His favor should have dimmed with our experience in SEA and now in the MidEast.

Of course, your reply would undoubtedly be that our failures in war, ethics, or football, apparently, reflect a lack of submission to Jesus’s will. We didn’t believe hard enough. We didn’t put Christ at the center of all our own mortal deliberations and are not constant in invoking Jesus’s guidance and authority. This posture is not only arrogant, but dangerous. Any person who claims that a belief in Jesus is obligatory for conducting national affairs, including warfare, is advocating a dangerous and obviously theocratic position. That is the logic of ISIS and similar ilk in Yemen or Iran. It is not America’s way and never has been.

What is not contested by any grad I know is that Christianity is protected in this country, as it should be, but is NOT privileged or elevated over any other faith, creed, belief, or no-belief.

Sorry, in America there ain’t nobody special.

Now, this note will end by offering a contrast between your note to Mikey and mine to you. Your screed relies almost entirely on personal insult and character-attack, spiced with prayers promising death and damnation. To contrast, I haven’t evoked a single adjective against you personally. I haven’t said a single thing about you, personally, or anyone in association with your views. There is no argument ad hominem in this note; I haven’t resorted to calumny of you or any other believer. I have critiqued the ideas espoused, not the person offering those notions. But I am astounded that any person calling himself a Christian is not self-aware enough to realize that there is nothing Christ-like evinced in a letter like the one you sent to Mikey W.

BTW, I am not afraid to sign my emails. This is from—-

    Wow, first time I’ve seen “VR” stand for “viciously racist.”
