Dear (name withheld),

As one who was born, raised, educated & church certified to teach biblical history as an American Christian, I know & appreciate that Christianity is just a branch off of the ancient tree of Judaism, Jesus & his disciples were Jewish, the biblical writers were Jewish, & there would be no Christianity without the Jewish faith, culture & people. Christianity teaches God created all human beings equal & it was very good (Genesis 1:27&31), the 2nd greatest Commandant is to love one’s neighbor (Mark 12:31, Luke 10:27), & there is no difference between Jew & Gentile (Romans 10:12, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Galatians #:28).
 
Your ignorant & intolerant anti-Semitic version of Christianity makes a mockery of all biblical instruction, moral teaching & common decency. It is a very sad commentary on Christianity when a hate-filled person like you, who claims to be Christian, hypocritically hurls non-Christian hate at fellow human beings. It is the reason so many rational people reject regressive radical fundamentalist Christianity today. Your diabolical diatribe reflects only on yourself & no one else. It confirms the self-evident truth bigoted believers use religion to spread their hatred whereas benevolent believers use religion to spread their goodness.
 
Consider this worldly wisdom:
 
Renaissance Philosopher MACHIAVELLI wrote in “Exhortation to Penitence” that those who cannot avoid being hostile to their neighbors are ungrateful to God.
 
Enlightenment Philosopher ROUSSEAU penned “God makes all things good; man meddles with them and they become evil.
 
Christian Philosopher PASCAL observed “Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.”
 
Cowboy Philosopher WILL ROGERS lamented “There is no argument in this world that carries the hatred that a religious belief one does.”
 
American poet laureate WALT WHITMAN’s legendary line was addressed to a religious outcast “Not till the sun excludes you do I exclude you.”
 
American writer, poet & 3 time Pulitzer Prize Winner CARL SANDBURG proclaimed
 
There is only one man in the world and his name is All Men.
There is only one woman in the world and her name is All Women.
There is only one child in the world and the child’s name is All Children.”

Dear (name withheld),

I don’t know where you get your information but wherever you get it it is full of lies, omissions and distortions.

 

What they fail to tell you is that not all Christians are treated equally in the military. Instead, they make it seem as if all Christians are being persecuted to further an agenda that does not include your faith.

 

US Army chaplain MAJ James Linzey, who, in a 1999 video spoke the following:

“Remember, the demons believe in Jesus Christ. They believe in the truth — see that’s Jesus Christ — and they tremble. And so the demons inside these greedy world bankers are trembling that Americans would come to find the truth about what they’re all about. They are as scared as little tiny mice running up and down the curtains in the cathedrals. Now, they’re in the cathedrals. They’re in the churches. They’re controlling pulpits. That’s how mainstream Protestantism has declined. Because they invaded the churches, and the mainstream Protestant churches stopped hearing the truth. So they want to squelch the truth by taking over the church. Now, this is not in my notes, but I was inspired by God because these are demonic, dastardly creatures from the pit of hell, and we need to stomp them out.”

Contrary to what you may have been told we are neither an atheist organization nor are we anti-Christian. Mikey is Jewish (and prays to the same Father we do 3 times a day) and 80% of the Board, Advisory Board, volunteers and supporters (300 in total) of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) are Christians. In fact, 96% of our 50,200+ soldier clients are mainline Christians and we fight for them more than any other belief or non-belief.

 

We are not trying to rid our military of Christianity. What we are trying to stop is an extreme form of Christianity that believes they are the only true form of it and all other mainline Christians are not the “right kind” or “born-again” and are going to hell. They are attempting to turn our soldiers into “Warriors for Christ” and that every war is a “Crusade.”

 

This includes you going to hell as a mainline Catholic.

 

The fundamental, Dominionist Puritans died out centuries ago but fast forward to today and we see this same type of thinking by the “born-again” sect of Christianity.  The Puritans have been resurrected in our military! This extreme form of Dominionist/Fundamental/Evangelical Christianity is relentless in its in-your-face religious proselytizing to other soldiers by the military personnel all the way up to the Commander. They have usurped the office of the Chaplains. They have harassed, beaten, withheld advancements and drummed soldiers out of the military on trumped up charges, all in the name of Jesus. They believe in cleansing the military of all of those who do not believe in the sect they do.

 

As stated above – 96% of our 50,200+ clients are mainline Christians who are suffering at the hands of these modern day Puritans. We are an agent in holding our military to the Constitution and the Military Code of Justice and stopping our military bases from being turned into a church that practices only one sect of Christianity.

 

Our name reflects our mission: The Military Religious Freedom Foundation.

 

We are defenders of the Constitution (Separation of Church and State), Supreme Court rulings and the UCMJ.

 

“…but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” (Article I, III)

 

This means that from the President to Congress to the military – no one’s job is based on their religion.

religion.

 

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion (Establishment Clause), or prohibiting the free exercise thereof (Free Exercise Clause).”(First Amendment)

 

The Establishment Clause means that you cannot favor one religion over another even though it is in the majority. This clause respects the RIGHTS of all religions. Our military is SECULAR and there are people of other faiths that don the uniform that love this country.

 

The Free Exercise Clause (which is subservient to the Establishment Clause) means that our soldiers are free to exercise any religion they want or no religion at all but cannot elevate one God above others.

“Because religious belief, or non-belief, is such an important part of every person’s life, freedom of religion affects every individual. Religious institutions that use government power in support of themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths, or of no faith, undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of an established religion tends to make the clergy unresponsive to their own people, and leads to corruption within religion itself. Erecting the “wall of separation between church and state,” therefore, is absolutely essential in a free society.” Thomas Jefferson, to the Virginia Baptists (1808) ME 16:320.

This is his second known use of the term “wall of separation,” here quoting his own use in the Danbury Baptist letter.

 

This wording of the original was several times upheld by the Supreme Court as an accurate description of the Establishment Clause.

 

“Jefferson’s concept of “separation of church and state” first became a part of Establishment Clause jurisprudence in Reynolds v. U.S., 98 U.S. 145 (1878). In that case, the court examined the history of religious liberty in the US, determining that while the constitution guarantees religious freedom, “The word ‘religion’ is not defined in the Constitution. We must go elsewhere, therefore, to ascertain its meaning and nowhere more appropriately, we think, than to the history of the times in the midst of which the provision was adopted.” The court found that the leaders in advocating and formulating the constitutional guarantee of religious liberty were James Madison and Thomas Jefferson. Quoting the “separation” paragraph from Jefferson’s letter to the Danbury Baptists, the court concluded that, “coming as this does from an acknowledged leader of the advocates of the measure, it may be accepted almost as an authoritative declaration of the scope and effect of the amendment thus secured.

 

In 1878 “separation of church and state” became part of the Establishment Clause by law.

 

The Supreme Court heard the Lemon v. Kurtzman case in 1971 and ruled in favor of the Establishment Clause.

 

Subsequent to this decision, the Supreme Court has applied a three-pronged test to determine whether government action comports with the Establishment Clause, known as the Lemon Test:

 

Government action violates the Establishment Clause unless it:
1. has a significant secular (i.e., non-religious) purpose,
2. does not have the primary effect of advancing or inhibiting religion
3. does not foster excessive entanglement between government and religion

 

Parker v. Levy.

“This Court has long recognized that the military is, by necessity, a specialized society separate from civilian society… While the members of the military are not excluded from the protection granted by the First Amendment, the different character of the military community and of the military mission requires a different application of those protections. … The fundamental necessity for obedience, and the consequent necessity for imposition of discipline, may render permissible within the military that which would be constitutionally impermissible outside it… Speech [in any form] that is protected in the civil population may nonetheless undermine the effectiveness of response to command.  If it does, it is constitutionally unprotected.” (Emphasis added) Parker v. Levy, 417 U.S. 733, 1974

 

To entangle the military with religion is a violation of the Constitution, Reynolds v. U.S., Lemon v. Kurtzman, the Lemon Test and Parker v. Levy.

 

The above laws are deliberately ignored and omitted from any correspondence in order to ask for donations to fight against us.

 

We are being falsely used and accused and so is anyone who believes the lies they read in order to line their own pockets.

As a Christian, you should know that you will be held accountable for attacking Mikey’s Jewishness.

“And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Genesis 12:3

You have also denigrated black people.

“For God so loved the world…” John 3:16

“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Mark 12:30-31

“But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” Matthew 12:36-37

 

Remember, Jesus was born, raised, preached and died a Jew and He will hold you accountable for what you wrote here.

 

You should have researched us before you sent this email instead of having blind faith in lies told against us for monetary gain.

Dear Joan,

I didn’t meant the all Jews were evil and by the way mikey is ashkanazi jew and the ancestors these so called Jews were not real Hebrews and they were actually a central Asian Turkish tribe called the Khazars  who converted to judaism and 85 percent of modern Jews in the U.S and in Europe are descendant of the khazars and just google the khazar theory and I wanna apologize for what I say  , I was just mad on how he attack Christians in the documentary I was watching on YouTube and i hope ya a bless day

Where did you hear that Mikey is an Ashkenazi Jew?
 
Unknown to you, Mikey lost a lot of relatives in Dachau, Treblinka and Auschwitz. 
 
Some of his relatives who lived through the holocaust gave video documentation of the horrors of it to Steven Spielberg who wrote Schindler’s List.
 
“Ashkenazim originated from the Jews who settled along the Rhine River, in Western Germany and Northern France.”
 
Not from the Khazar “theory.” There may have been some Khazar’s that accepted the Jewish faith but that doesn’t make all of the Ashkenazi Jews Khazars.
 
True Ashkenazi Jews are determined by blood tests. 
 
My DNA test showed I have Ashkenazi in my family tree – with 50 living relatives – but I am a Christian (retired Pastor).
 
I also have 45 living Native Americans in my family tree.
 
Mikey does not attack all Christians. If we thought so we Christians would leave MRFF en masse. It’s an extreme sect of Christianity that believes they alone have the true God and all others are faux-Christians.
 
You have a blessed day, too.
Joan Slish

Response by MRFF Supporter Mike Challman

Good Day,  (name withheld) –

Mikey Weinstein has read your email (as he does all emails to the MRFF), and has asked me respond. I’m a lifelong, committed, active Christian; USAF veteran; and graduate of the USAF Academy (Class of ’85)… as well as a staunch supporter of the MRFF.
I have to say, you have me wondering about what exactly comprises your “Christian faith”, as your nasty comments about Mikey, Jewish people, and black people are in no way consistent with the Christian principles by which I live as a Catholic Christian.  Nonetheless, I’m willing to overlook that and make an effort to provide accurate information about the mission and purpose of the MRFF.
Specifically, our mission and purpose is dedicated to ensuring that all members of the United States Armed Forces fully receive the Constitutional guarantees of religious freedom to which they and all Americans are entitled by virtue of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.  As such, our support extends to ALL military members, including Christians. Further, this means our organizational focus is on that particular area, and not what is happening in other countries. For what it’s worth, we are as appalled as you whenever any group of people is terrorized anywhere in the world.  As an organization, our mission is very specific.
As a Christian myself, I can assure you that the MRFF is not anti-Christian.  We do not take a position on any particular religious belief or non-belief.  Rather, we quite appropriately challenge the actions of military leaders and organizations when they conflict with the Constitutional rights and protections of military members. We don’t challenge anyone’s BELIEFS… only their ACTIONS.  Unfortunately, it is too often the case that our fellow Christians are the ones who act inappropriately. It seems to me that some folks wrongly believe that the U.S. government should be an explicitly Christian institution, and that the U.S. military should be an explicitly Christian force… more so, they seem to believe (wrongly again) that it is their God-given right to promote their particular dogma anytime, anywhere, to anyone.  As a Christian myself, I can appreciate the passion of their beliefs, but I strongly disagree with the notion that any single religion, even Christianity, should be given preference or prominence in our government and our military.  It runs counter to the ideals on which our nation was founded, and more importantly it runs counter to the US Constitution.  Such efforts are dangerous to the liberty and religious freedom of all military members… especially the roughly 35% who are NOT Christians (which is something like half-a-million patriots).
Rest assured, if inappropriate actions are taken on behalf of ANY religious belief or non-belief, the response of the MRFF is the same every time.
Every military member, including every leader, has the right to believe as he wishes and to worship as he wishes.  But no leader has a right to proselytize to a captive audience that does not stand on equal ground with him — it’s an unfair burden to put on subordinates, and it is entirely inappropriate.  That is the heart of the MRFF mission – to ensure that inappropriate proselytizing of ANY specific doctrine, dogma, or belief (including non-belief) does not occur in the U.S. military. Your assertion that MRFF is “anti-Christian’ is simply wrong.  We are neither anti-Christian nor anti-religion — we are pro-Constitution.
I’d be happy to continue a dialogue with you, if you have any comments based on what I’ve shared here and if you can do so in a more appropriate and respectful manner.
.
Peace,
Mike Challman
Christian, USAF Veteran, MRFF Supporter

Dear (name withheld),

Do you really exist?

Reading this message makes it clear that you’re actually part of a conspiracy against Christianity. You’re one of a group of low-lifes who hate Jesus and think his followers are idiots and are trying to destroy them by painting them as ignorant, narrow-minded, semi-literate bigots, anti-Semites and racists.

I think it’s a nefarious scheme that is absurd on its face because everyone knows that real Christians, true followers of Jesus, are kind, thoughtful, non-judgmental, merciful and loving people who would never be capable of the bilious garbage you’ve trundled out here.

I will admit it’s a somewhat clever scheme, if fiendish and repulsive, but it won’t work, Omar, or whatever your real name is. Too many people know what true Christianity is and they won’t be fooled by someone making such a pathetic and obviously false attempt to undermine it.

Nice try, whoever-you-are, but you don’t pass the smell test. You REALLY don’t pass the smell test. I’d suggest a shower, a purge, and maybe an enema. Then perhaps, once you’ve at least attempted to clean yourself out, try to find an honest pursuit.

Good luck.

    “I don’t like how your stupid Jewish dickhead leader name mikey Weinstein be insulting my Christian faith and especially our Christian catholic soldiers of the U.S army and your organization is anti-Christian and ya guys never talk on how cruel Islam is to Christians in the Middle East and ya Jews are a cancer to the world and your puppets ( black People) believe all of the lies ya be saying about Christianity.”

    Amazing how some Christians still believe that Jews are cancer or trying to take over the world. That person doesn’t need Jews, Muslims or other groups to insult Christians when the Christians do an excellent job of insulting themselves. Finally, the person forgot how cruel Christians are throughout the centuries.

    Dear Joan, if you have Ashkenazi Jewish blood in you then you are not Christian, you are a Messianic Jew then if you have truly accepted Christ as your personal Lord and Savior!

  3. G

    JR, the Nazis would not care less about who is an Askenazi Jew and a Messianic Jew. The Jews would still get scapegoated whether they were Askenazi, Messianic, Orthodox, Reformed, etc.
