Religious freedoms

I am appalled by your stance and intolerance of the bible.  Your organization needs to study the first amendment fully. Your persecution of Major Steve Lewis is ridiculous.  He was not preaching the bible. Just because he had a bible on his desk does not mean he was preaching the bible. Whether you like it or not, this country was founded on Judeo Christian values. God is mentioned in our constitution.  The first amendment prohibits establishing a state sponsored religion, it prohibits impeding the free excercise of religion. Your group is violating the free excercise of religion.

Response from MRFF Advisory Board Member Mike Farrell


Hi (name withheld),

Sorry you’re appalled, but if you’ll read the law and military regulations you’ll understand that Major Lewis’ Biblical demonstration was inappropriate.

We know about the founding of the nation, thanks, and support the Constitution. We have no quarrel with religion, have nothing against the Bible and have no problem with religious belief when expressed properly. However, the separation of church and state, established by our nation’s founders, is the best way to protect everyone’s right to the belief system of her or his choice.


Mike Farrell
