Wacky position

Your position on Major Gen Olson is an embarassment and a prime example of how delusional and baseless your standards are.  Have you not heard of free speech and freedom of religion?
Why would anyone give money to this cause?

Hi (name withheld),

We’re not opposed to freedom of religion. In fact, our position is the only one that truly understands and respects it for everyone. The Constitution of the United States requires that the *GOVERNMENT* (an involuntary tax-funded entity we all pay for) shows religious neutrality in all circumstances. The government has rules and regulations, as well as a history of court rulings, which uphold this principle when it comes to the conduct of government employees. Perhaps you don’t understand the legal intricacies of government neutrality, or perhaps you don’t think it’s a serious matter, but those of us (both non-religious and our religious allies) who have the knowledge, the moral consistency, and the courage will fight against the slightest hint of theocracy wherever it rears its ugly head.

Similarly, freedom of speech does NOT confer a right to be given government resources to make that speech. Nobody has a right to be given a government microphone to speak from. Nobody has a right to be given a government uniform to inflate their own importance and authority. Nobody has a right to speak *on behalf of* the United States government on religious matters.

Regards,

Hi (name withheld),

Fortunately, a lot of people understand freedom of speech and freedom of religion better than you do. As a result, so many of them support us for protecting those very freedoms from people like you and Major General Olson, who violated not only the law but Air Force regulations.

Look into it.  You might find yourself feeling a bit foolish.

Best,

Mike Farrell

    Answer: because this organization is the only one that works exclusively to protect our service men and women from having their superiors, who have a huge amount of power over them in terms of assignments, schooling, leave (vacation), performance reports, promotions, and everything else from imposing THEIR beliefs onto those subordinates, and punishing the subordinates if they don’t follow the superior’s beliefs.
