    I love it, we can undo every social experiment that Obama did. Mikey’s days are numbered and he knows it. The new Defense Secretary can just ignore Mikey or tell him to go to hell and there is nothing Mikey can do a thing about it. If I were Mikey I would tell him he needs to start looking for an apartment to rent, because his funds will dry up and he will not be able to afford his nice home any longer.

    Anti-Patriot,

    Basically, you are promoting intolerance and discrimination again, while President Obama worked to end it. How do you propose to treat the men and women in the military serving honorably when you enact your discriminatory policies against them? Completely ignore their service record and file trumped up charges against them? Keep in mind that they are under contract. They cannot legally just walk away from their military service.

    If the Secretary of Defense makes the mistake of telling the military to ignore Mikey and continue its oppressive, discriminatory. and/or proselytizing actions against service members, then Mikey has the right under the First Amendment to file a lawsuit against the military and the commanders who are showing their ignorance and intolerance. Which means that, despite your ignorance, there is something that Mikey can do, and he knows it.

    And what makes you think that “his funds will dry up”? People will still donate to his organization, just as they do now. And even if they didn’t, Mikey can still go back to practicing law, just as he was doing when circumstances caused him to start up the MRFF.

    We appreciate these radical religious right antagonists for publicizing & promoting the courageous & commendable work of the MRFF. It brings to mind this wise observation of progressive Christian theologian Bishop John Shelby Spong: “The way you really get to the public is by having the right enemies…the right enemies attacking you really do open up the possibilities.” BG John Compere, USA (Retired), MRFF Advisory Board Member

    Yeah AP and the USA will return to the good old days just before the Great Depression of 1929 where every American had two chickens in a pot and were able to go to college (not).

    Sorrey AP, but the gay and transgender genies are not going back into the bottle,

  5. American Patriot

    Gen. Compere,

    Progressive theologians are going to hell so I would not follow them unless you want to join them there yourself. Just a warning to you. They are heretics and know nothing of God or of His Son Jesus Christ or the way to salvation. The NT does say that there will be false teachers in the last days and they are part of that.

  6. American Patriot

    That is okay, we will legislate them back into the bottle, there are more of us than there are them. Over 80,000 evangelicals voted for Trump, and only 1% of the population is gay or transgender and we will be out there win as many as we can to Christ, whether in or out of the military. Non believers only want to populate hell while we want to depopulate hell.

    Oh yes Gen. “Maddog” Mattis. A hard core Marine.

  8. G

    I believe it will be the conservative theologians will be going to Hades because they don’t believe in the teaching of Christs which means that they are the false teachers.

    “That is okay, we will legislate them back into the bottle, there are more of us than there are them. Over 80,000 evangelicals voted for Trump, and only 1% of the population is gay or transgender and we will be out there win as many as we can to Christ, whether in or out of the military. Non believers only want to populate hell while we want to depopulate hell.”

    No, the federal judges will throw the legislation out of court saying that it is unconstitutional and Christians ilke you will be in hell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91DSNL1BEeY

    Where did you get this idea that non-believers want to populate hell considering the fact that many Christians want to send people to hell or threaten to send them to hell? Why not let God decide who goes to hell?

  9. American Patriot

    G,

    My place in heaven is secure according to the promises of Christ in His Word. Actually G, God sends no one to hell, we all choose where we want to go by either accepting Christ and His gift of salvation or by saying no it and living as they want to live. So, you will choose G, where you want to go, but Christ did say that the only way to heaven is through surrendering your life to Christ plain and simple. If you choose not to accept Him as your Lord and Savior, then He has no choice then but to judge you and sentence you to an eternity as Satan’s guest in hell.

    Actually, it is the conservative theologians who are obeying the teachings of Christ. We are confronting the sins of this world while liberal ones are closing their eyes and embracing the sins of this world, like abortion, homosexuality, etc.

  10. G

    AP, you don’t know if your place is secure in heaven. God sends no one to hell? Then why did he created it in the first place? As I have stated, God did not think this through about giving people free will despite the fact that he is all knowing and all powerful.

    Confronting the sins of the liberals theologians? Yeah, what about the sins being committed by the conservatives theologians like lying, cheating, murdering, adultery, child molesters, prostitution, etc. If Christ die for our sins, then he die for nothing.

  11. A

    I can see the appeal that Evangelical Christianity has the for the military.

    When Heaven and Hell are just a matter of having your opinions straight, you can order people who trust you to walk into machine gun fire, bomb civilian hospitals “by mistake”, and so on, and it doesn’t matter. There are no consequences. The people you kill get “what they deserve”. In fact, the more Christians you murder the better it is for everyone, right? They live for eternity in glory, right?

    That is not the kind of moral leadership I want, ever.

  12. A

    Also… A.P.:

    sorry, did I read that right?

    “80,000 evangelicals” is not a lot of people. You might have that wrong.

    I would also be very interested if you could share your thoughts on America’s many BLACK Christians that have traditionally voted for Democrats.

  13. American Patriot

    Black Christians have been deceived but they are coming around A.

  14. G

    Well, now many American Republicans are coming around to see how the Republican Party did not care for them and those white people who voted for Trump are in for a rude awakening and their prayers is not going to save them when they have no job, no roof over their heads, no retirement, etc. What are they going to say? My God My God, why did you abandon me?

  15. American Patriot

    G, you really make me laugh! There were more than white people that voted for Trump, more blacks and Hispanics voted for Trump than they did Romney, because they are finally wising up to how awful Obama was as president and never did a thing for them, in fact he divided the country more than before he became president and put more black people into poverty than before he took office.

  16. G

    No AP, it was the Republican Party that has divided the country than ever before and they have made it clear several times that they will not work with a Democratic president. It was the Republicans who have put more Americans into poverty because they have blocked every piece of legislation in putting America back to work.

    “Oh yes Gen. “Maddog” Mattis. A hard core Marine”

    He will need Congress to waive rules requiring defense secretaries to be civilians for seven or more years after leaving the military. The rules are in place to ensure civilian control over the U.S. armed forces. One senator stated that she will vote against giving him any kind of exemptions.

  18. American Patriot

    Oh wow, one senator, out of 100. Remember who controls the Senate and the House G, Republicans do and they will will waive the rule for Trump. Mattis is a civilian, he no longer wears a uniform.

  19. Angela Schweig

    AP-You sound like anything but a Christian. In fact, you’re a judgmental son of a bitch, aren’t you? They last time I checked only God can kill people, and only God decides who goes to Hell. I’m not even discussing your fucked-up relationship with God. But you have no grasp of First Amendment to the Constitution or the Uniform Code of Military Justice or the regulations particular to each branch of military service. So, start here: https://www.militaryreligiousfreedom.org/2016/09/our-constitution-any-religion-the-military/
    This is the information I was looking for and a lot more: https://www.militaryreligiousfreedom.org/2016/08/religion-6/
    Please read it carefully before you demonstrate being an historIcally illiterate asshole again
    Oh and BLESSED BE.

  20. American Patriot

    Angela,

    Last time I checked, people are killing people every day all around the world and it is not God who is doing it. God is not the one pulling the trigger on a gun or stabbing one with a knife, or dropping bombs on cities like in WWII.

  21. American Patriot

    Angela,

    Oh yes the New York Times, that fair and impartial newspaper who has also demonized Israel as well.

  22. Tom O

    AP is playing the old “if you can’t find something wrong with the message, attack the messenger” game that right-winger reality deniers fall back on so often.

  23. G

    Mattis is a civilian; however, he and Trump still have to follow the rules about waiting for seven years or more years before he can be confirmed for the post and the Democrats can use the filibuster in the House just like the Republicans did. Turnaround is fair play.

    Yeah AP, and what makes you think that Fox News is fair and balanced along with the rest of the corporation controlled media that spend more of its time demonizing Obama instead of doing their jobs like they are pay to do?

    Last time I check, we are still being taught in religious school about God sponsoring violence. God is indirectly pulling the trigger, stabbing someone with a knife, and dropping bombs because his followers are using his name to justified their actions. Furthermore, God created the human race so he needs to take responsibility for allowing people to have free will to kill.

  24. American Patriot

    God does not take responsibility for anything, He is God. You are just like the rest of liberals, let’s blame it on someone else instead of taking responsibility for your own sins and actions. When you stand before God one day G, you will have no excuses and no defense attorney to help you. He will replay your entire life in front of all to see, what will you have to say then????

    You would make a great Palestinian, let’s blame it on Israel, it is all their fault!

  25. American Patriot

    Angela,

    That bitch you are referring me to was my mother who died of a heart attack over 40 years ago, and she had more class than you ever will.

  26. Connie

    Oh my, Israel
    A star actor in a play
    Not of your making

    APs End Timey Review must happen! Won’t someone think of the profits?

  27. American Patriot

    Yes Connie, the end times will take place and it will all center around and in Israel, and no Christians will have nothing to do with it, for God is orchestrated the whole thing for His glory and His promises made to Israel 3,000 years ago.

  28. Connie

    Huh! It sounds like you know more than your God AP.

    Are you sure you worship the God which created you instead of the God you created?

    As it’s stated in the book Good Omens God’s ineffable plan is well, ineffable. Who are you to say you know better?

    What if your End Times Review and Olde Timey Talent Show is a test of how you’d treat “the least” of us? What if your God really doesn’t want you to destroy everything? Where are the verses telling you to do these things?

    Lots of ‘what if’. Wonder if you have an answer that doesn’t stroke your own ego…

  29. G

    “God does not take responsibility for anything, He is God. You are just like the rest of liberals, let’s blame it on someone else instead of taking responsibility for your own sins and actions. When you stand before God one day G, you will have no excuses and no defense attorney to help you. He will replay your entire life in front of all to see, what will you have to say then????”

    Well, I guess God is a liberal then since he won’t take responsibility for what he has done, so you conservatives have no right to tell the rest of us about responsibility. A lot of conservatives like those on Wall Street and in the Bush, Jr. Administration have not taken responsibility for what they have done to the world’s economy, the American economy and getting the USA involved in Iraq and have not confessed to their sins. And conservatives are great at blaming someone else for their mistakes like blaming government workers and labor workers. I wonder what the conservatives will say to God when he goes through their crimes and misdeeds especially Christian conservatives?
