WASHINGTON POST / RELIGION NEWS SERVICE – MRFF Hate Mail from Self-described Christians

Selected article excerpts:

  • I’ve known Mikey Weinstein, a self-described agnostic, since the late 1990s. We both served as military JAG officers, Weinstein in the Air Force and I in the Navy. He served as a lawyer in President Reagan’s White House . . . I served as the U.S. Attorney in New Mexico for the George W. Bush administration.
  • Some target Weinstein as the founder of the Military Religious Rights Foundation. Its mission is to ensure that “. . .all members of the United States Armed Forces fully receive the Constitutional guarantees of religious freedom. . .”
  • Weinstein and I do not agree on many things, but we are still friends. While he focuses on the First Amendment’s prohibition on established religion, I focus on its guarantee of free religious exercise. I agree that our military members should not be forced to accept sectarian religious views, any more than they should be forced into voting for one political party.
  • The stench of hate mail I’ve read concerning the MRFF leads me to believe that many self -described Christians either do not know or reject biblical authority.
