    Looky looky what I found, it appears that Weinstein is lying again!

    That said, there is clearly more to the story.

    “The most obvious issue: It is unlikely the military fired Schoenfeld.

    It appears Schoenfeld was a contractor, likely for inGenesis, which provides contract dental services at Fort Meade. This means that if Schoenfeld was indeed “fired,” her employer inGenesis fired her, not the military. If that’s true, Weinstein is aiming at the wrong target — and he may even know it. Weinstein made a point of using the passive voice in the complaint to say “she was swiftly fired…”, coyly not saying who fired her, and he notably does not demand that the Air Force flight commander LtCol Dennis Holt re-hire her — which is likely outside his authority.

    Schoenfeld’s status as a contractor is also significant because except in specific circumstances, contractors don’t have access to the military’s Equal Opportunity system. So while she may have filed an EO complaint (presumably with the military, though the complaint doesn’t say), if her employer didn’t have a specific agreement in place, it would have been summarily dismissed for lack of purview. Weinstein alleges she was fired the very day she made the EO complaint.

    “Without intending to diminish the substance of Schoenfeld’s complaint, it appears (absent further information) that Weinstein isn’t being entirely forthright in his accusation that

    Ms. Schoenfeld’s basic Constitutional civil rights have been obliterated and ripped asunder.”

    Gee … looks like “Yeshua Warrior” is getting his (mis)information from a certain “Christian Safety Officer’s” blog. Might want to rethink that there, Bob.

    Ms. Schoenfeld absolutely does have access to the military’s Equal Opportunity system, and, in fact (something that you won’t find on that blog you’re getting your misinformation from), she has active complaints filed with both the EO and the IG.

    Dear Yeshua Warrior,

    My guess is that most of the blog followers from where you got your information want to rewrite the U.S. Constitution in order to officially make the USA a “Christian Nation”. Apparently they claim that Jesus wants this to happen. Look up “Dominionist” on Google. You will learn that high on the yield list is the Wikipedia article on “Dominion Theology.” Don’t be distracted by the various comparisons in the Wikipedia article on Dominion Theology, because the bottom line is that all Dominionists believe Jesus wants that Constitutional rewrite in order to officially make the USA a “Christian Nation”. Not mentioned in the Wikipedia article on Dominionism is that the Advance Guard for Dominionism are folks who have achieved the respectable status conveyed by the term, “Stealth Dominionist”, although the identity of those Advance Guard Warrior-members is of course a Closely-Guarded Stealthy Secret. The Stealth Dominionists are Dominionism’s True Front Line Warriors.

    As you can see from the excerpt and link below, the Stealth Dominionists face a Great Challenge to increase the Dominionist-favorable statistics in order to accomplish what they claim Jesus has instructed them to proselytize for, namely to gain enough new Dominionists in order to effect a rewrite of the U.S. Constitution leading to officially making the USA a “Christian Nation”. Lives have been dedicated to that cause.

    Here’s the excerpt and link:

    57% Of Republicans Say Dismantle Constitution And Make Christianity National Religion
    By: Keith Brekhus/Wednesday, February, 25th, 2015, 3:58 pm/Politicus

    http://www.politicususa.com/2015/02/25/57-republicans-dismantle-constitution-christianity-national-religion.html

    Excerpts: A Public Policy Polling (PPP) national survey conducted between February 20th and February 22nd of Republican voters, found that an astonishing 57 percent of Republicans want to dismantle the Constitution, and establish Christianity as the official national religion. Only 30 percent oppose making Christianity the national religion. Although the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment clearly states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,” GOP voters want to cast aside that provision and impose Christianity as the official American religion. While a number of red states have passed statutes forbidding the implementation of Islam-based sharia law in their states, Republicans apparently have no misgivings about turning the United States into a Christian theocracy. The poll’s crosstabs reveal that support for making Christianity the official religion is strongest among Mike Huckabee (94 percent), Rick Perry (83 percent), and Ben Carson (78 percent) supporters. Ben Carson is the preferred presidential candidate of those who want to impose Christianity on the nation with 24 percent support. Mike Huckabee and Scott Walker are tied for 2nd place at 16 percent. Scott Walker (35 percent) and Jeb Bush (22 percent) are the leading candidates among GOP voters who do not want to establish a national religion. . . . Republican voters seem all too eager to embrace Dominionist theology, even though doing so would violate the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Freedom of Religion is one of the bedrock principles established in our founding documents. Republican voters are gearing up to elect candidates who will undermine the First Amendment and take away our Freedom of Religion. Independents and Democrats must be prepared to stop any candidate who would dismantle the Establishment Clause, whether it be Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson or one of the other GOP presidential candidates.

    The easiest way to dismantle your conjecture about Ms. Schoenfeld’s situation is this: regardless of what you believe (notably with zero legitimate knowledge of the situation as am outside observer) the code of conduct for our military members does require them to behave in such a way that maintains good offer and discipline within the ranks. They cannot discriminate. They cannot use government authority to pick religious winners and losers.

    Your feelings about this don’t constitute facts. I know that’s hard for some to swallow. Don’t worry though, you’re not alone in your ignorance Jesus Warrior.

    Please forgive the typos above.

    Should read “…as an outside observer…” and “…good order and discipline…”

    Yeshua Warrior:

    If you had read the article either on Huffington Post or Daily KOS you would know that even if she was fired by a contractor it was at the request of the NCOIC of the section where she worked.
