Lt. General Kwast, 

It has now been 11 days since the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) was informed by your staff that it was “looking into the the matters” brought to it by MRFF of the false and fictitious story of the “Christian Flag” that was supposedly heroically “rescued” from an abandoned U.S. military chapel in the Korean DMZ. MRFF is representing 21 outraged USAF personnel under your direct command at Maxwell AFB (Gunter Annex), Montgomery, Alabama on this matter of flagrant unconstitutionality of Christian religious exceptionalism, triumphalism, dominance, primacy and supremacy.

And yet STILL, that “rescued Christian flag” remains completely intact and visible in that fraudulent exhibit and boosted/boasted on social media at the Air Force Enlisted Heritage Research Institute (AFEHRI) at Maxwell AFB (Gunter Annex).
( see screenshot taken earlier today below)
Lt. General Kwast, MRFF now DEMANDS that you IMMEDIATELY remove that “Christian flag” from that AFEHRI exhibit to maintain the status quo of Constitutionality while you allegedly spend the next days, weeks, months (and years?) “investigating” this unequivocally sordid matter of illicit church-state violation under your direct command.
Indeed, sir, every second you allow that “Christian flag” to remain publicly juxtaposed with that mannequin wearing the United States Air Force uniform, you are only MORE egregiously and disgracefully violating the No Establishment Clause of the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution as well settled U.S. Supreme Court caselaw and DoD/USAF Directives, Instructions and Regulations; especially Air Force Instruction 1-1, Section 2.12, which reads as follows:


“Balance of Free Exercise of Religion and Establishment Clause. Leaders at all levels must balance constitutional protections for their own free exercise of religion, including individual expressions of religious beliefs, and the constitutional prohibition against governmental establishment of religion. They must ensure their words and actions cannot reasonably be construed to be officially endorsing or disapproving of, or extending preferential treatment for any faith, belief, or absence of belief. “[emphasis added] 


Please advise MRFF just as soon as you have complied with this demand.
Thank you in advance for complying with your sworn oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Michael L. “Mikey” Weinstein, Esq.
Founder and President, Military Religious Freedom Foundation
