sincerely

I sincerely hope the next administration kicks you out of your position and title so hard you feel it for the rest of your life.
Your anti Christian drivel is the afront to the nostrils of millions of Americans.  Shame on you,  you nasty man.
Enjoy your last 2 years in this position.  I have a feeling when we are free of Obama in 2016 a lot of the dirt will be wiped off when he goes.
And thank God for it.  It can’t come soon enough.
Very sincerely

Dear  (name withheld),

It’s stunning, I must say, to read such a misbegotten message from who can spell, use punctuation correctly and, while being decidedly critical,

refuses to stoop to the level of vulgarity and obscenity that adorn most of the messages we receive from those who dislike what they perceive
as our work. You do fall, unless I am misreading, into familiar political territory, but that is, of course, your right.

As regards the sum and substance of your message, you are operating from a number of false assumptions. Let me explain:

First, neither Mr. Weinstein nor the MRFF has any “position and title” in association with the Obama Administration. Given that fact, no matter the tone

or the party next in the White House, our work will continue.

Secnd, the MRFF is not a political organization and has no political role. We are made up of people of many different faiths and varying political viewpoints.

Third, there is nothing remotely “anti Christian” associated with the work of either Mr. Weinstein or the MRFF. The work we do is to protect the

right of the men and women in our military forces to their freedom of choice as regards belief. Because that protection includes warding off the

efforts of a certain fundamentalist, dominionist sect of Christianity to force itself into a position of dominance in the U.S. military, many assume,

as you appear to, that our opposition to the efforts of this totalitarian sect means that we oppose Christianity. Nothing could be further from the

truth. In fact, over 90% of our members/supporters are Christian, some of them clergy.

Fourth, there is no need for Mr. Weinstein or anyone associated with the MRFF to feel shame for protecting the constitutional rights of our service-

women and men. If fact we take pride in it.

If you’d like more information, I should say correct information that comes without the hysterical slant applied by the would-be-dominant-dominionists

and their ilk, I’ll be happy to oblige.

For now, the only shame attached to anyone is that which associates itself with “nasty” messages based on ignorance.

My best to you.

Mike Farrell

(MRFF Board of Advisors)


Oh, ,(name withheld),
We get a good chuckle when anyone writes to us stating that Mikey has a title and position with President Obama concerning religious tolerance in our military. There is no such office (title and position) created by the White House and Mikey has never received a paycheck. You’ve been lied to.
The last time Mikey ever held a ‘title and position’ by a President was  working for over three years in, and for, the West Wing of the Reagan Administration as legal counsel in the White House. In his final position there, Mikey was named the Committee Management Officer of the much-publicized Iran-Contra Investigation in his capacity as Assistant General Counsel of The White House Office of Administration, Executive Office of the President of the United States.
I see that you don’t know that 75% percent of the Board, Advisory Board, volunteers and supporters with MRFF are Christians and 96% of our 40,600+ soldier clients (1 can represent 50 and 1 represents 100) are Christians. We fight for the rights of Christians more than anyone else but you won’t hear that because that wouldn’t rile you up to the point of attacking us.
The only ‘title and position’ we fight for is the First Amendment to the Constitution:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment (Establishment Clause) of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise (Free Exercise Clause) thereof . . . “(1st Amendment)
 
The Establishment Clause comes before the Free Exercise Clause for a reason; the Free Exercise Clause is subservient to the Establishment Clause – not the other way around as some Christians would like it to be.
The Supreme Court heard the Lemon v. Kurtzman case in 1971 and ruled in favor of the Establishment Clause.
Subsequent to this decision, the Supreme Court has applied a three-pronged test to determine whether government action comports with the Establishment Clause, known as the Lemon Test.
 
The Parker v. Levy case, decided on June 19, 1974, defined under the Uniform Code of Military Justice that “the military constitutes a specialized community governed by a separate discipline from that of the civilian…”

The rules that apply to the military do not apply to you or other Christians as civilians.

Our soldiers take the oath of enlistment to uphold the Constitution – not the Bible.
Our military is secular and must remain that way. Any person, who wants to defend our country against all enemies foreign and domestic, is free to do so regardless of their religious beliefs or non-belief in a deity.
We are constantly labeled as “atheists”, “liberals” and “left wing” which are lies. We are apolitical.
We are neither anti-God nor anti-Christian. Mikey is NOT an atheist but Jewish and prays 3 times a day to the same Father we do. Another lie you’ve been told.
What we do fight against are the Dominionist Christians (google it) that have hijacked our military – all the way to the Pentagon – who believe that we are a Christian military, all of our wars are Crusades (Bush let that one slip) and that they must cleanse the world of all Christians that are ‘not the right kind’ or not ‘Christian enough’, non-Christians and non-believers, so that Jesus can come back and rule for 1,000 years. This is pre-millennialism and throws out the book of Revelations that states that Jesus will come back with His heavenly army, subdue the earth and THEN rule for 1,000.
I doubt you will be in Bonnie Weinstein’s next book edition of the hate mail and death threats that Mikey and MRFF receive because you can at least spell correctly. But, I can guarantee you that your email will go out in a world-wide email blast from MRFF because we send everyone one of them out. We have liaisons on almost every base and volunteers and supporters around the globe. You will be famous.
You are following liars. They have been told the truth but refuse to acknowledge it.

You shall not spread a false report. You shall not join hands with a wicked man to be a malicious witness. (Exodus 23:1)

A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who breathes out lies will perish. (Proverbs 19:9)

You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him.When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44)

I suggest you dig a little deeper into our website and find out the truth about Mikey and MRFF by starting with the ‘About’ section.

I will pray for your eyes to be opened and that you no longer follow those that are deceitful.

Good Afternoon, (name withheld) –
Thanks for writing to the MRFF.  Mikey Weinstein has read your note and asked if I would be interested in responding to you.  I’m a Christian and USAF veteran who supports the MRFF in a volunteer capacity.  I’d like to take a moment to do two things.  First, to clear up a misconception that you apparently hold… and second, to describe what the MRFF actually is all about (and by extension, why it is that I can be both a Christian and an MRFF supporter).
First, to your misconception — you seem to think that Mikey specifically, or MRFF generally, has some official role within the current Administration. This is not the case.  MRFF was founded by Mikey about ten years ago (which was actually during the presidency of George W Bush).  We are an independent, pro-Constitution group that advocates for the right to religious freedom of all members of the US armed forces. Nether Mikey nor anyone else associated with the MRFF has any sort of position within President Obama’s administration, so when he is not longer President after 2016 there will be no direct impact on the MRFF.
Second, as to what MRFF is really about —   we are dedicated to ensuring that all members of the United States Armed Forces fully receive the Constitutional guarantees of religious freedom to which they and all Americans are entitled by virtue of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. The key words in that mission statement are ALL MEMBERS.  That means that we support the rights of Christians to hold Christian beliefs… and Jews to hold Jewish beliefs… and Muslims to hold Muslim beliefs… and for military members to hold any other conceivable religious belief (including the right to unbelief).  And that also means that we oppose efforts by any particular group, even if it happens to be my fellow Christians, to seek prominence or favoritism for any particular sectarian belief.
So if you’ve read about some of the choice words that Mikey has had for the small segment of Christians who seek to give their version of Christianity dominance and dominion over the US military, don’t be confused — he is not talking about all Christians.  He is only talking about the Dominionists who would trample the Constitutional rights of military members who don’t believe as they believe… and he is entirely justified in doing so because that sort of sectarian agenda has no place in the US military.
On the other hand, if you are like me and you cherish your Christian faith, yet at the same time understand that America is a pluralistic society composed of good, honorable people of many religious beliefs (including non-belief)… and if you agree that all citizens are entitled to the same degree of religious freedom… and if you further agree that US military members are included among those citizens with a right to that degree of freedom… then don’t fret, Mikey is not talking about you or me.  And as a Christian, I think it is important that to provide correction to fellow Christians who would disrespect the rights of others in such a way — that is why I support the efforts of MRFF.
Thanks again for writing.
Peace,
Mike Challman
Christian, AF veteran, MRFF supporter

From what I read Mikey is very ANTI Christian .. not at all freedom of religion but freedom from religion.

  “Where do you read this stuff on Mikey? Give me names and links.”

It doesn’t matter what fine words you use.  It matters what you do and Mikey has not proven himself to act as a Christian but Anti Christian and not so much freedom of relgion of as freedom from Christianity in every possible form.

  “You are not only demeaning and judging Mikey but also we Christians that work for him. We are not anti-Christian ‘in every possible form’ but support          freedom of         religion according to the proper place, manner and time in the military UNDER THE CONSTITUTION, case law and military law.”

I pray God repays Mikey and all who support him according to your works.

 

“Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.” Romans 13:1-2

 

We are obeying God by forcing our military to follow our Constitutional Laws. You, on the other hand, are not.

 

Jesus said “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.” Matthew 7:1-2

 

“But I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the Day of Judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” Matthew 12:36-37

 

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray FOR (not against) those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.  If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that?  And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? (Matthew 5:43-48)

 

Jesus left His criteria for who is going to heaven and who is going to hell in Matthew 25:31-46. I suggest you read it before passing YOUR judgment on to others ever again.

 

It looks like you’re the one that is in a whole heap of trouble at the Judgment Seat of Christ.

 

I was wrong on you spelling correctly.


 

I’m quite comfortable on where I stand with God and we’ll see what God has to say about people who upheld and supported lawbreakers like Hitler and Stalin and Obama at the judgment seat of Christ.  We already know our own forefathers stood against the tyranny of Britain and God blessed them for it.

2 Tim 4:14   Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:

That is all I am praying.  That every work performed that brings evil to Christians God will repay you according to it.

LOL you’re concerned with spelling?  You’ll be concerned with much more than that unless you repent before that judgment seat.  Look around for me on that day.  I will be there watching.

As far as judging Christians?  1 Cor 5:12
For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge?

We are specifically to judge those who call themselves Christian but do not protect or uphold the words in the Bible they profess to believe.  No those people are called the dogs, the concision, the mutilation, the cutting or tearing away.  Those are the people who have a form of godliness, but deny the power thereof: from such turn away.  2 Timothy 3:5

As I turn away from you now and have no further correspondance with you.  But I will begin praying about this as I have said.

I pity you.

Hi (name withheld),

Actually, Mr. Weinstein is not broadly anti-Christian but is rather limited to attempting the correcting of the many outlandish activities of some Dominant Christian groups which are currently infiltrating the Armed Forces and sounding very much like the Christians of the Inquisition.

Under law, Christians, like other social organizations and religions  may not use their influence to condemn or influence other beliefs, including Atheism.

Freedom of religion is very important and even more vital in the armed forces where some attempts have been made to form international religious based armies.. MRFF (Military Religious Freedom Foundation) is dedicated to keeping the armed forces religion neutral and out of the influence of   Dominionists who would take over civil government, void the US Constitution and install Dominion Christian  men into all political American offices.
The separation of church and state is vital to the survival of the American Democracy. One has only to remember the Irish government of the 1800’s, the Italian government under Mussolini, and the German government under Hitler to understand the full danger of mixing religion with politics.

Even today, in some African Nations which have been overtaken by Christian groups, atrocities in the name of God are common. Many of these horrors, including burning at he stake for heresy,  are taking place this very day.

Please understand that Mr. Weinstein is on the side of the oppressed and not the oppressor.

Thank you for your concern.

    This person seem to be a real piece of work. How is the next administration going to do anything to Mikey? He does not work for the government in any capacity. The government does not have the authority to shut down a private non-profit organization except in rare, extreme circumstances that do not apply here. Therefore, the government does not have the authority to “kick [Mikey] out of [his] position”, or relieve him of his “title” of President of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.

    Add to that I have not seem Mikey or anyone associated with the MRFF write anything that is “anti-Christian”. But then, the ramblings of this guy would also be “[an] afront to the nostrils of millions of Americans.” He also presents himself as a rather “nasty man” as well.

    Mikey, thank you for the work that you do for our service men and women. Thank you for representing them and giving them a voice to those in power when they cannot represent themselves. Thank you for standing up to the extreme right wing that wants to control our military.

    Mark Sebree
