As a Deacon in my church we demand that Michael Weinstein come and face our congregation of Bible believing Christians to defend his wicked life.

We are located in close proximity to a large military base and many of our congregants are military or have relatives serving.

Mr. Weinstein’s name consistently comes up as the chief provocateur and persecutor of those who follow the only True Savior, the only True Answer for mankind.

Jesus The Christ.

Mr. Weinstein is the Saul of Tarsus for the 21st century. But it is clear he will not change his evil ways in the service of Satan.

Mr. Weinstein serves the Evil One and thus shall reap what wickedness he sows. Jesus will see to it.

In the coming days Mr. Weinstein will receive an official demand notice to come to our church to defend his vile hatred of The Christ in the military services.

We cannot force Mr. Weinstein to come to our church to answer for his unbiblical ugliness as a human being.

But his cowardice in refusing this demand will tell the tale for all to see.

There is but One Way, Truth and Life.

And Mr. Weinstein’s wicked ways will deliver him into the waiting flames of hellfire forever.

Mr (name withheld) (if indeed that is your name and this is a real email address),

I am replying to this not in defense of Mikey or MRFF; but, rather to clarify a few points. First off I will commend you on proper spelling and syntax, you would be surprised as to how many Bible Believing Pastors, Deacons, Sunday School Teachers and Members have such atrocious grammar and spelling. Now your position is interesting in that you are accusing Mikey of “wicked ways that will deliver him into the waiting flames of hellfire forever”. Oh and you refer to him as “the Saul of Tarsus of the 21st Century”. Very interesting mixing of metaphors. But I am remiss let me qualify what I am going to say by introducing myself. You see my name is at the bottom of this email and I am not afraid to let you see that. I am a retired Army Chaplain Colonel, who happens to be endorsed by a group that accepts “non-denomination Pentecostal Charismatics” like me. I am born-again and spirit filled to boot. Having served this great country as both and Air Force Chaplain and an Army Chaplain. While in these roles I served forty-seven (47) month in combat in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I was wounded twice in the line of duty receiving two Purple Hearts and awarded two Bronze Stars one with a Combat V for Valor. All of these awards came while serving as a non-combatant minister for our troops, DoD Civilians, Third Country Nationals and Indigenous People. I have seen evil and have met death face-to-face, I know the smell of death and the hellfire, brimstone of horrifically evil people, and rest assured Mikey Weinstein is not even close to them. I have seen people strap bombs on a 10 year old mentally challenged boy who was told that the “American Soldiers, are giving out candy”, thankfully the remote detonation device failed. This is evil, sickening and perverse, what I described is definitely not Mikey.

So let me develop this a little further, while working in Washington DC as a Chaplain in several different assignments I was confronted by the “vile and Satan Incarnate” goings on of Mikey Weinstein. Needless to say when I was moved for my Final Military Assignment to New Mexico and realized I was in Mikey’s hometown, I had to draw conclusions through personal observations and I shocked a lot of people when they found out I had become friends with Mikey. I learned he is a believing Jew and ironically the overwhelming majority of his clients (and I believe the number of clients is quickly closing in on 65,000) are Christian. Yes you don’t hear about that as this does not fit your narrative. There are people in the military that are bent on a Constantine type of “Holy Brigades/Wings/Squadrons/Fleets” who are conquering in Jesus name. Mikey is the lone voice in the wilderness screaming out about messed up Theocracies. How would you feel if a Radical Christian started blowing up abortion clinics – oh wait, that has already happened. Or a misguided Jew decided to “fight back” and started blowing up Mosques, oh again that has happened too. What I am getting at is hate, the perception of “righteous” people using hate to justify their own actions.

Now let me wind this up. By putting Mikey in Satans Service and the modern day Saul of Tarsus you have created a judgement mark of your own. By hatefully “inviting” Mikey to address your church you have shown your own hate. How do you reconcile 1 John 4:20 with the hatred you emote? Or how about Matthew 7:1-5? Be very careful if you choose hate to send out your message, it will come back in equal measure.

Respectfully,

Quentin D Collins, US Army Chaplain (Colonel – Retired), PhD, CPC, ELI-MP

Hi (name withheld),

This is good. I’m impressed. At first I wasn’t sure what to think, so that’s a testament to how close you came to convincing me that you actually were one of these fire-breathing clowns who beat their chests and cry crocodile tears about their love for Jeeeesus! and scare the crap out of those who are silly enough – or I guess lost enough – to buy into their bullshit. But this is great!

You are a pro, no question.

I love the DEMAND thing! That’s wild. I’m sure there are some of these tin-pot blowhards who actually
think they can DEMAND that people do what they want. And your follow-up is fabulous! If the poor guy doesn’t show up he’s a coward, condemned to the “WAITING FLAMES OF HELLFIRE FOREVER!!” Oh, God, I love it! Do this pitch in the right place and you’ll have people hangin’ from the rafters, laughing their asses off. But even better, take it to a meetin’ hall and I’ll bet you could get a bunch of needy people to throw money at you.

No kidding. You could get people to put money in the basket with this hustle. You really ought to try. I was reading the other day about one of these Bozos who has his “flock” so whipped into shape they give him money to buy an airplane so he can get around faster to spread the WORD! Can you imagine?

I’m tellin’ ya’, you ought to think about it. You’re that good.

It’s a good touch, too, about “proximity to a large military base.” It gives the impression there are a bunch of hard-ass Christians, locked and loaded, just ready and willing to kill for THE LORD! Beautiful stuff, man. Beautiful!

You know what does really knock me out, though? You didn’t get directly into the antii-Semitic stuff. You were subtle, just used his name, which is perfect, and you compared him to Saul of Tarsus and called him a provocateur and persecutor. Powerful! And you didn’t have to openly sling the Jew stuff! Damn, man, you are one clever SOB.

Listen, let me know when you do this act at one of the clubs. I know a bunch of folks who can use a good laugh. And these days, we all need a good laugh.

There is but One Way, Truth and Life.

Don, you’re killin’ me!

Rational adults learn early in life to respect those who sincerely speak about deities (preaching) or those who humbly speak to deities (prayer), but never those who arrogantly attempt to speak for deities because mere mortals cannot & do not speak for immortal deities.

“Whoever images himself a favorite with God, holds other people with contempt. Whenever a man believes he has the exact truth from God, there is in that man no spirit of compromise.

Hi (name withheld),

My name is (name withheld) and I am a volunteer with the MRFF. I read your email. He definitely isn’t the person you think he is. I’ll just respond to each comment for efficacy.

As a Deacon in my church we demand that Michael Weinstein come and face our congregation of Bible believing Christians to defend his wicked life.

If I may, I would like to try to change your mind on Mikey.

Here is a small introduction:

As seen in Wikipedia: He is an attorney, businessman, and former Air Force officer. Weinstein graduated with honors from the United States Air Force Academy in 1977. He has stated that while at the Academy he encountered a string of incidents of psychological harassment, including notes emblazoned with swastikas and anti-Semitic slurs, death threats, and two violent incidents of hazing where he was ambushed, beaten, and, in one case, hospitalized.
Weinstein spent over three years working in the West Wing of the Reagan Administration as legal counsel in the White House. He began with an appointment to the Office of Budget Management and was soon named the Committee Management Officer of the Iran-Contra affair in his capacity as Assistant General Counsel of The White House Office of Administration, Executive Office of the President of the United States.

We are located in close proximity to a large military base and many of our congregants are military or have relatives serving. Mr. Weinstein’s name consistently comes up as the chief provocateur and persecutor of those who follow the only True Savior, the only True Answer for mankind. Jesus The Christ.

Well, his name may come up, but what you are hearing are lies. His main purpose is to ensure there is no persecution of others of other beliefs or even of the same beliefs as you hold. He is here to uphold freedom of religion, our first ammendement of the constitution, protecting people. That is a very moral deed. Freedom of religion mean that you can believe what you want. This has nothing to do with crushing your god, it has everything to do with protecting from fundamental bigotry that is sometimes received by those who subscribe to your faith. Even Christians are clients – most of the 65,000 clients of MRFF are Christian. You don’t know what you don’t know, but the military can be a brutal place regarding religious fundamentalism. It infriges on our rights as Americans.

Mr. Weinstein is the Saul of Tarsus for the 21st century. But it is clear he will not change his evil ways in the service of Satan.

That is a harsh thing to say about somebody you have never met. So you are accusing him of being evil – which goes beyond just average sin – and to take that a step further, you are accusing him of being on Satan’s team? That is just an awful thing to say!

This reminds me of a bible verse: “Suppose you see one of our people commit a sin that isn’t a deadly sin. You can pray, and that person will be given eternal life. But the sin must not be one that is deadly. Everything that is wrong is sin, but not all sings are deadly.” 1 John 5:16

Mr. Weinstein serves the Evil One and thus shall reap what wickedness he sows. Jesus will see to it.

You are condemning him. That is a wicked thing to do.

It reminds me of a few bible verses: “If you hate each other, you are murderers, and we know that murderers do not have eternal life. Children, you show love for others by truly helping them, and not merely by talking about it.” John 3:15

“My friends, don’t say cruel things about others! If you do, or if you condemn others, you are condemning God’s Law. And if you condemn the Law, you put yourself above the Law, and refuse to obey either it or God who gave it. God is our judge, and he can save or destroy us. What right do you have to condemn anyone?” James 3:11

“Do as God does. After all, you are his dear children. Let love be your guide. You are God’s people, so don’t let it be said that any of you are immoral or indecent or greedy. Don’t use dirty or foolish or filthy words. Instead, say how thankful you are. Being greedy, indecent or immoral is just another way of worshipping idols. You can be sure that people who behave in this way will never be part of the kingdom that belongs to Christ and to God.” Ephesians 5:1

In the coming days Mr. Weinstein will receive an official demand notice to come to our church to defend his vile hatred of The Christ in the military services.

No one cares.

We cannot force Mr. Weinstein to come to our church to answer for his unbiblical ugliness as a human being.

What a disgusting insult. So very hateful.

Which reminds me of a bible verse:
“Jesus then said: But the words that come out of your mouth come out of your heart. And they are what make you unfit to worship God. Out of your heart come evil thoughts, murder, vulgar deeds, stealing, telling lies, and insulting others. These are what make you unclean.” Matthew 15:16

But his cowardice in refusing this demand will tell the tale for all to see.

What tale? Him staying away from a complete asshole will tell a story? I hope so.

Which reminds me of yet another bible verse:
“But I promise you that if you are angry with someone, you will have to stand trial. If you call someone a fool, you will be taken to court. And if you say that someone is worthless you will be in danger of the fires of hell.” Matthew 5:22

There is but One Way, Truth and Life.

You are more than welcome to your belief, not fact, because the law of our land says you are free to have your spiritual beliefs. This applies to everyone. And you need to accept that some people reject your claim and accept other claims. It’s just the way it is. And you can’t force it on others. Not only is it not a nice thing to do, it’s is unlawful when it is done in government. The military is part of the government.

And Mr. Weinstein’s wicked ways will deliver him into the waiting flames of hellfire forever.

What a horrible and disgusting thing to say. You are judging his ways as wicked, and that is a lie. His ways are beautiful. Just ask these people:

Mr. Weinstein and MRFF,
I am a Catholic soldier in the U.S. Army. Throughout my career in the army, I have come up against difficulties when trying to practice my Catholic faith. On almost every occasion in which I have made a request for religious accommodation my request was ignored and, many times, treated disrespectfully by a corrupt and uninformed chain of command…he two Basic training experiences described above were proto-typical of my later life on active duty and in the guard, where terribly painful and degrading, fundamentalist Protestant ignorance, hostility and discrimination all bared their ugly heads, and continue to do so. It’s everywhere. Noone stands up to it for fear of being horribly victimized in retaliation as only the military can do. Please, Mr. Weinstein and MRFF, help me and help all the other Catholics who are facing this blatant prejudice and degradation.
(U.S. Army Soldier’s name, rank, MOS, military installation and location withheld)

Hello,
I’m currently deployed and proud to serve my country as a US Muslim Soldier. Sadly I’m facing a persistent harassment due my Muslim faith. Things are getting worse when Ramadan started. I do fast during the mission and I feel soldiers around me started to give me more tasks and been singled and labeled as a “ MUZIE “ I did follow the chain of command and verbally complaint but when yesterday one of the soldier assaulted me I no longer feel comfortable being around the team as I feel scared of my life.
I’m a translator and none of the team does speak a foreign language except a local contractor and myself.
Any reply will be highly appreciated.

So you are lying when you say his ways are wicked. They are extremely humanitarian.

Which reminds me of a bible verse:

“Stop lying and start telling each other the truth. Don’t get so angry that you sin. Don’t go to bed angry and don’t give the devil a chance. Stop all your dirty talk. Say the right thing at the right time and help others by what you say. Stop being bitter and angry and mad at others. Don’t yell at one another or curse each other or ever be rude. Instead, be kind and merciful, and forgive others, just as God forgave because of Christ.” Ephesians 4:25

It is worth mentioning the First Ammendment of the U.S. Constitution, which is central to Mikey’s hard work and good deeds:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. . . .”

The U.S. Supreme Court highlighted the phrase “wall of separation” in 1878 by declaring in Reynolds v. U.S. “that it may be accepted almost as an authoritative declaration of the scope and effect of the [first] amendment.”

A Time article written by James Lankford and Russell Moore sums it up nicely: “The First Amendment ensures both that the government does not show preference to a certain religion and that the government does not take away an individual’s ability to exercise religion. In other words, the church should not rule over the state, and the state cannot rule over the church. Religion is too important to be a government program or a political pageant.

“Thankfully, the Courts have affirmed this time and time again.
In 2014, the Supreme Court held in Town of Greece v. Galloway that “it is an elemental First Amendment principle that government may not coerce its citizens to support or participate in any religion or its exercise.”

Which leads me to a few bible verses:

“Obey the rulers who have authority over you. Only God can give these rulers in their places of power. People who oppose the authorities are opposing what God has done, and they will be punished. Rulers are a threat to evil people, not to good people. There is no need to be afraid of the authorities. Just do right and they will praise you for it. After all, they are God’s servants, and it is their duty to help you.” Romans 13:1

And lastly:

“Anyway, they are no more than false apostles and dishonest workers. They only pretend to be apostles of Christ. And it is no wonder. Even Satan tries to make himself look like an angel of light. So why does it seem strange for Satan’s servants to present to do what is right? Someday they will get exactly what they deserve.” Corinthians 11:13

“Some godless people have sneaked in among us and are saying, ‘God treats us much better than we deserve, and so it is all right to be immoral.’ But these people insult powers they don’t know anything about. They are like senseless animals that end up getting destroyed, because they live only by their feelings. Now they are in for real trouble. Because of this, they will be destroyed. These people are filthy minded, and by their shameful and selfish actions they spoil the meals you eat together. They are like wandering stars forever doomed to the darkest pits of hell.” Jude 10

    Many modern fundamental Christians think dying for a political country is dying for a Christian God. They’re just stupid.

  2. Richard English

    I forget who said it, but this is apropos here:

    If your religion is worth killing for, please start with yourself.

  3. sb

    Sounds like those religious “leaders” forgot to read Matthew 7:1, Luke 6:37, John 8:1, Romans 2:1, and maybe Ephesians 4:29. Then again, most so-called Christians cherry pick the Bible to suit their egos.

  4. Al Rosenthal

    This lunatic got something important all wrong. He professed his faith in “Jesus. The Christ.” Actually, the word Christ does not mean son of God. It means the Messiah, i.e., the Jewish Messiah. The real name of Jesus was Yeshua (Joshua). His followers called him Yeshua Hamashiach (Joshua the Messiah). The New Testament was written in Greek. Yeshua Hamashiach became “Jesus Christos.” The deacon is worshiping a Jewish preacher.

    Al,

    Very interesting information you posted. I started to think (of course I did because coffee) about all the myriad preachers of the evangelical sort who rail at the mysterious and nebulous cabals of the Jewish persuasion and yet worship the same by not understanding basic linguistics.

    Thank you for the grin this early morning. 🙂

  6. An Old Soldier

    I just read Mike Farrell’s reply to that guy and he said in part “I love the DEMAND thing! That’s wild. I’m sure there are some of these tin-pot blowhards who actually
    think they can DEMAND that people do what they want” Mister Farrell with all due respect isn’t that what you at the MRFF do on a daily basis DEMAND things instead of asking respectfully. Doesn’t that make you blowhards as well.

  7. Grey One talks sass

    Old Soldier,

    Because asking folks to stop blatantly breaking the law works so well.

    Spread the tactic to the police! Old Soldier has the answer!!! (Weapons grade snark).

    Nice try at equivalency. What’s next? Comparing bananas to missiles? Apples to stop signs?

    Fun game you’ve got there. I could play all day but my coffee is ready. You keep on being you Old Soldier. You’re adorable.

  8. Tom O

    “isn’t that what you at the MRFF do on a daily basis DEMAND things instead of asking respectfully”? The only things MRFF ever demands of theocrats is that they obey military regulations, federal laws, and the US constitution, which theocrats in the military violate frequently.
