Dear Mr. Weinstein,

I see that you and the MRFF are now taking the case of the whiney young woman from the Fort Lewis Army base in Tacoma.

I see that she’s a jew (of course) claiming that other jews (of course) are being a little mean to her. Oh what a terrible shame.

She’s married to a jew (of course) and now you, also a jew (of course), are supposedly fighting the Army to protect her?

From what? Other jews?

It is not the job of our nation’s Army to have to waste its valuable time protecting jews from other jews.

You and your MRFF are always on the prowl to attack Christians who don’t measure up to the MRFF’s jew-inspired ideals.

You, a jew, attack peace loving Christians all the time. You have done this for years now. (of course).

Christians don’t attack other Christians.

But jews attack other jews? OF COURSE!

Why don’t you jews get your own jew houses in proper order before wasting the Army’s time trying to resolve your endless jew squabbling?

You all had no trouble working together to crucify our Lord and Savior but you can’t fix a little jew argument among yourselves at Fort Lewis?

Mr, Weinstein it’s called Fort Lewis not ‘Fort Jewish.’ It’s about America and not about jews!

The Army has more important things to do than waste its time on your jew internal affairs. Send her back to Israel. Send you back to hell.

Mikey,

What a charming post.  (name withheld) out does herself with this tacky bit of anti-common sense.  An obviously self-professed Christian -after all,  you snarky Jews killed her Jesus.  But I wonder where she went to Sunday school? A true Christian understands that Jesus lived to teach love and tolerance, and died on that cross as a definitive act of obedience, service and salvation.  But that’s the Catholic in me riffing on catechesis learned as a child, (name withheld) must have sent her Sundays learning to hate others.

Here I am, a God Fearing gentile, loving and defending my Jewish brothers… Sr. Catherine Agnes would be proud!

Hello (name withheld),

We get so many crackpot messages from bigots with fake names and fake addresses I really have no idea if (email withheld) is actually a real address belonging to a real, if benighted, person or if the sender is simply another coward needing to vent her or his spleen but doesn’t have the guts to be straight up about it.

As you might imagine, it’s really boring reading the awful garbage some of these cowardly fools, most of whom, like you, falsely claim to be Christians, put out. Figuring out a way to respond to them, especially when they’ve used a fake address and won’t see what I’ve written, is kind of a chore.

But let me take the chance you’re actually who you say you are and try to fashion a response in the hope that some good can come from a serious exchange. If, that is, you’re willing to engage in a serious exchange. Most bigots aren’t.

First off, how does the woman you refer to, a married woman who had the courage to speak up and object when subjected to inappropriate behavior, qualify as “whiney”? Standing up for oneself is a courageous thing to do, isn’t it? Especially, I would think, when the person crossing the line is what some see as a religious leader.

What’s your actual complaint about her, other than that she is Jewish, which seems to be your real gripe?

In your circles, do you consider sexual harassers or sexual abusers “a little mean”? How would you suggest Christian women respond if a religious leader of their faith was sexually inappropriate? Or is sex between religious leaders and married members of the flock an acceptable practice in your particular sect?

It’s hard, I must say, to figure out what troubles you most. From the revolting repetition of anti-Jewish sentiment throughout this hateful message, I suspect it’s simply the existence of Jewish people, or perhaps the existence of Judaism itself, that is a problem for you. That, however, is something you’re just going to have to find a way to deal with in this life. As it is, the antipathy you’ve chosen to indulge yourself in is clearly curdling your poor, pathetic soul.

I wonder, given your apparent loathing of all things Jewish, how you square yourself with the fact that the one you refer to as your “Lord and Savior” was a Jew. He certainly had skin darker than you probably favor and had features common to the people of Abraham. Is that something you’ve managed to somehow overlook or ignore?

As regards your objection to the thoughtful and patriotic work of the MRFF, our dedication to protecting the freedom of religion of the men and women of our armed forces, it seems clear your primary problem is not our work but the name of our founder, a name that suggests his heritage. It’s a shame, I must say, that your moral blindness refuses to allow you to recognize goodness and decency if it doesn’t come in a package you find acceptable.

Your message was revolting and stupid, but no one has to be satisfied with living an empty, hate-filled, stupid life, so please feel free to write again, drop the facade and we can talk.

By the way, the one thing you said that made me laugh out loud was “Christians don’t attach other Christians.” Have you been reading the papers lately?

Bye now.

Ms. (name withheld),

Your abhorrent & acrimonious anti-Semitic attack on the American wife of an American soldier (both of whom are Jewish), a fellow American (our Founder & President Mikey Weinstein) because he was born of a Jewish mother (like Jesus) & all fellow Americans who are Jewish (like Jesus, all of his disciples & the biblical authors) reflects only on yourself & reveals a repugnant religious racist incapable of communication in a moral or meaningful manner.

Your clueless comments about the Military Religious Freedom Foundation are also revealing. It is an American constitutional rights organization (composed of over 80% Christians) that has represented over 65,000 military men & women of all faiths & beliefs (with Christians composing 95%). The Foundation has been officially nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize 7 times for its pro bono advocacy for American military members.

It is a sad commentary on our country when a hate-filled hypocrite like you spews sick sectarian slurs against other human beings because they are Jewish. You are obviously ignorant of biblical teaching that there is no difference between Jew & Gentile for we are all one (Romans 10:12, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Galatians 3:28). History confirms Christianity is a branch off the ancient tree of Judaism & there would be no Christianity without the Jewish faith, culture & people.

If you are capable, reflect on these telling truths –

“Hate ultimately harms only the hater.” – SOCRATES (Legendary Philosopher)

“Hate corrodes the container it is carried in.” – GEORGE H.W. BUSH (American President, military hero & Christian gentleman)

You can be discerning, but not condemning. Christ said so. You are being very bad in his eyes. You shouldn’t be disparaging like that. You are supposed to love. Check out that massive log in your eye. You need to try harder to be like him since you chose to follow him.

As Christopher Hitchens, one of my favorite humans of all time, said: “There are all kinds of stupid people that annoy me most, but what annoys me the most is a lazy argument.”

Be gone with you.

Dear (name withheld) –

I am writing in response to your August 6, 2019 email to Mikey Weinstein and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (“MRFF”).

The mission of MRFF is to protect the right of every soldier, sailor, airman, Marine, cadet, and veteran to freely exercise the religion of their choice (or to not practice any religion at all).  This includes protecting the same rights for the family members of our service members.

Your blatant anti-Semitism is appalling.  You claim that it is “not the job” of the Army to “waste its valuable time protecting jews [sic] from other jews [sic].”  Not only does this imply that protecting Christians from people of other faiths would not be a waste of time, it ignores the fact that it is a chaplain’s job to counsel service members and their families and to keep those communications confidential.  The actions of the Rabbi in this case resulted in preventing a family from practicing their religion in their community.  You either have no knowledge of the role of a chaplain or you simply don’t care about the spiritual needs of Jewish service members.  Thus, you are either ignorant or an asshole…I’m guessing you are both.

MRFF protects the Constitutional rights of ALL of our service members because they sacrifice so much to protect our rights.  Their families also make significant sacrifices and deserve similar protection.  Your rights have been defended by people of ALL faiths, as well as those who practice no faith.  How dare you make assumptions about which of those service members deserve the same rights you have?!  While you are writing emails proving that you are no true Christian, the Jewish service members you insult are making sacrifices you cannot fathom.

Blessed be,

Tobanna Barker

  1. Grey One talks sass

    Letter writer needs to study up on their vocabulary. They missed the lesson which covered such gems as consent, regulation, trust, and honor.

    I know, I know… these words are for the advanced class but how will we be best if we do not stretch our minds? Hmmm?

    “It is not the job of our nation’s Army to have to waste its valuable time protecting jews from other jews.”

    Oh, but it is the job of our nation’s Army to advance the interests of Christianity, is that it?

    As for

    “Christians don’t attack other Christians.”

    How about Christian Nazi Germany’s invasion of Christian Poland? And Christian Czechoslovakia? And Christian France? And Christian Hungary? And Christian Holland? And Christian Belgium? And Christian Norway? And Christian Denmark? And its attempted invasion of Christian Britain?

    And Christian Austria-Hungary and Christian Germany’s war with Christian Britain, Christian France, Christian Italy and Christian Russia in World War I (I don’t list the United States; though it had a majority-Christian population, it does not have a state religion lkke the others).

    And Christian Finland against Christian Russia?

    And Christian Norway against Christian Sweden?

    And what about Christian England and Christian France’s wars just since the 11th century?

    And the Christian Fascists and Christian Republicans in the Spanish Civil War?

    With this last, all I have to do is name the locale: Northern Ireland.

    But I could go on, and on, and on, and on…

    To paraphrase H.L. Mencken, no one ever went broke underestimating the desire and capacity of one bunch of Christians for attempting to seize the land and possessions of another group of Christians.

    I guess the letter writer hates Jesus because he is a Jew. That is why she is so disgusting.
