Dear (name withheld),
 
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation is an American non-profit constitutional rights organization (composed of 80% Christians) dedicated solely to ensuing the rights of military members, veterans & civilian employees to American Constitution freedom of religion are respected & protected. We currently represent over 56,000 (96% of whom are Christians) men & women who have requested our assistance.
 
Despite your erroneous exclamations, there is no uniformity in American Christianity. There are more than 2,000 vastly different USA varieties according to the World Christian Encyclopedia. The US Defense Department publishes an official list of recognized religions for the military alone that currently includes 221 different belief groups.
 
Our many Christian clients do not want someone else’s version of Christianity imposed upon them in the military workplace interfering with their military mission & duties. Our few non-Christian clients do not any version of Christianity imposed upon them.
 
The US Constitution prohibits our government or its representatives (which includes the military) from endorsing or promoting a religion. The military mission is to defend our nation against its enemies – not endorse or promote a religion. The military sworn service oath is to bear true faith & allegiance to the US Constitution – not to a religion. Military chapels are available for those who chose to worship & chaplains are available for those who seek spiritual support.
 
Your diabolical diatribe brings to mind the wise words from a elder Christian clergy: “Respect someone who speaks about God (preaching & teaching) or someone who speaks to God (praying & praising), but not someone who speaks for God because only God can do that.”
 
Most Sincerely,
Brigadier General John Compere, US Army (Retired)

You have apparently misunderstood the situation. We have nothing against born-again Christian soldiers.

I’m not sure what makes you think such a thing. We are certainly not anti-Christian. In fact upwards of 95%

of those associated with the MRFF are Christians.

We support all members of the armed forces and go to great lengths to ensure that they are free to believe as

they choose. That’s the American way.

The problem with having a Bible on a table dedicated to honoring servicemen and women who have perished

or were or are being held prisoner somewhere is that not all of them are Christians. These servicemen and woman
have all forms of belief, as is their right, so including a religious artifact like a Bible on the table is just as wrong
as would be putting a Koran on the table. I’m not sure how you’d feel about the Koran or the Book of Mormon
being put on the table instead of the Bible, but we would object to it because the government should not be in
the business of promoting one faith or belief system over others.

I hope that helps you better understand the situation and eases your mind.

Best,

Mike Farrell

Dear (name withheld),
 If anyone has an incorrect name, it is you. Chastity means self-restraint. You might try living up to the name. I was taught to never fight crazy with crazy. However, I have learned that trying to rationalize with crazy using good old fashioned common sense can also be a waste of time. I’m going to give it a try with you. Please prove me wrong.
 During my years of service to this country, I have walked by many Fallen Comrade tables which include the Bible, generally found in military dining facilities. Each time I passed by I thought, ” What about all of those non-Christians who paid the ultimate sacrifice for this country? Don’t they/I count?” The military functions on a team concept which includes working with and looking out for one another regardless of religious beliefs, race, political affiliation, gender, or sexual orientation. The mission is what matters. So, having something that is symbolic for one religion is divisive to that team concept.
 If you still don’t get it, ask yourself this question, “What would Jesus do?” If all Christians would actually follow what Jesus said, there would be no hate and Christians would stop telling anyone who listens what God wants. It is time to get on your knees and beg forgiveness for the hateful email you sent to Mr. Weinstein, an ethical man who served his country honorably while on active duty and still does by standing up for ALL in the military. Oh, and remove the I SUPPORT OUR TROOPS sticker from the back of your truck. You don’t support all of our troops.
Excelsior!
