Hi (name withheld),

You guessed wrong. What could give you such an idiotic idea? You may have been reading some of that crazy propaganda the zealots put out, but you’re apparently very confused.

If you have questions about what the MRFF does and what we stand for, the best way to get the right answer is to ask us.

Just for the record, what we’re trying to do is protect the American system.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Dear (name withheld),

Which Muslims are you referring to?  Have you received reports of Muslim leadership within the United States military attempting to use their authority to further their religion or to discriminate against non-Muslims?  If you have, please do tell me the specifics so we can investigate and do everything within our power to put a stop to it immediately.  We happily fight any instance of religious discrimination or abuse of authority to further a religious cause regardless of the philosophy of the perpetrator.  I have sincere doubts that you can name a single instance in which American Muslim military leaders are getting away with such crimes right now, but if you know of any I’m all ears.

Waiting with baited breath for your reply,

Blake A. Page

You pick up a lot of experiential knowledge just by talking to a million people and judging by your reply I think you know what I was talking about with my statement.  My question to you and the organization is what is the purpose of the mrff?  Is it to completely eliminate any talk of God or to put limits on it or what I don’t see how you do that?  I too am waiting with bb.

Dear (name withheld),

The mission of our organization is to enforce existing laws and regulations throughout our military regarding government neutrality regarding religion and individual free exercise.  What happens in other countries is not our foundation’s concern, except when it involves members of our military of course.  We have a narrow mission, and fighting injustice in Saudi Arabia or Pakistan is not on that list.  If you have issues with religious freedom in other countries, good.  I personally care deeply about those things as well, however as an organization we may focus or efforts on what we can change with what resources we have without becoming overextended.

I know obedience to the laws of the United States is unsavory for many dominionist Americans who prefer a Christian theocracy, but I don’t mind offending others in order to preserve the religious liberty guaranteed to us all, (Christian or otherwise) by the constitution.

MRFF is not afraid of Muslims. We treat our relationship with them based on need and in the context of good relationships with all races, religions and political bodies.

Much more can be accomplished when  communications aren’t interrupted by racial and political differences.

You may wish to try understanding other belief systems rather than use your faith as a weapon.
