Bibles

Mr. Weinstein,
Congratulations on your success in removing bibles from a VA medical center . That should teach a lesson to those brave veterans who probably have lost limbs or have some sort of illness resulting from defending your right to take away the only thing that gave them hope and will to survive .
Did you fight the Sikh’s in their use of turbans in the army?
I think you just like to fight Christians. They are easy to fight and get donors to contribute to Military Religious Freedom Foundation. It just shows your fear of muslims and Sikhs , difficulty in succeeding in its removal , being ok with it ,  just not a money maker or all of the various possibilities mentioned. You religious freedom fighters in general doesn’t have any principal. The only thing you do is fight the easy fight and your sole purpose is to make money. You are a disgrace and if you have any license to operate that so-called foundation of yours it should be pulled. You should be exposed for your hypocrisy. I will expose your double standard.
You have no right to inflict additional pain on our brave veterans. Shame on you.

…hey there, sport, we actually have 6 Sikh MRFF clients and we also represent a little in excess of 17% of all Muslims in the U.S. military….we have over 48,700 tota active duty armed forces and veteran clients and about 96% are practicing Christians…..as to the rest of what you attempt feebly to say, well, it’s just SO ignorant that I don’t have the time to mentor you into understanding…perhaps try to audit a local high school civics class if you can find one?…..Mikey W.

The MRFF represents veterans who request that their American constitutional freedom from religion imposed by the government or its representatives be recognized & respected.
 
Attached is an informative summary of the facts, history & law applicable to the Constitution, any religion & our veterans. Hopefully, you will find it informative.
 
Sincerely,

At least you address me with respect not your guy Mikey who sent me  an email full of disrespect.
Sir my problem with atheist groups like yours, American Humanist, Freedom From Religion and others like you is that you guys don’t go after Muslims which in particular bring even more substantial religious intrusion in public domain and amazingly paid by the taxpayers. You can go about your business which brings sadness to our great veterans as you wish but apply this wicked principal equally. Have you ever filed a complaint against the Muslims? If so send me verifiable examples.

Please understand we oppose the unconstitutional imposition of “ANY” religion on our military & veterans by the government or its representatives and will represent military members or veterans who complain of any religion imposition. However, our experience substantiates that fundamentalist Christians are the primary perpetrators. Their obsessive self-righteousness to publicly force their private religious beliefs on others is a persistent problem that continues to plague our military, veterans & nation. Such disrespect for the right of fellow Americans to determine & enjoy their own religious or non-religious beliefs (a basic right these religionists defiantly demand for themselves) is the height of human hypocrisy & violates all moral teaching (think “The Golden Rule”).

No sir you are wrong. The Muslims apply it more aggressively, fundamentally , and substantially. Why is it that you have any tolerance for them at all? Is it Military Religious Freedom or Military Christian only Freedom?
I have a few guesses:
a) you are scared of them
b) they are not money makers for you like Christians because apparently you don’t go after the others , so principal is not in play.
c) you are ok with them and consider them another lefty group
or a combination of all 3.
I will complain to the same army captain. They should not adhere to hypocrites.

We can rationally explain in plain language for you & provide you with facts, history & law regarding the constitution, any religion & our veterans, but we cannot comprehend it for you. You will have to do that for yourself. Happy Trails.

    Secularism is for grownups.

    Notice the e-mailer complains twice about how Muslims allegedly “bring even more substantial religious intrusion in public domain and amazingly paid by the taxpayers,” but offers NO examples?.

    “that should teach a lesson to those brave veterans who probably have lost limbs or have some sort of illness resulting from defending your right to take away the only thing that gave them hope and will to survive.”

    Yeah, and many people lost their faith, their religion, and their belief in God after going through a war. Their attitude is how can there be a God that care after what they went through?

    “That should teach a lesson to those brave veterans who probably have lost limbs or have some sort of illness resulting from defending your right to take away the only thing that gave them hope and will to survive.” Unspoken assumptions: “ALL those veterans are Christian, and the Bible is the “ONLY thing that gave them hope and will to survive” and “removing the Bible from a display in the public area of a government facility totally removes the Bible from the lives of everyone who visits that facility.”

    So, letter writer – who is it exactly that is implementing a campaign to overtake all forms of governance here in the USA? Who has a well defined agenda (cough Seven Mountains) that is easily Googled?

    Dominionists who are also called Christian Supremacists? Whodathunk!!!!!1!1!1!1!

    Hello my fellow MRFF commenters. Hope all is well with you.

    It appears to me the new crop of letter writers challenge the good manners of everyone. This one demands respect but does nothing to earn it.

    Anyway – I just wanted you to know I keep you in my thoughts even if I’m not out on the interwebz a lot right now. Peace.
