MRFF Condemns “Soldier Santa” and Military Base Calendar Getting Hanukkah Date Wrong

Mr. Weinstein, you are very cruel to have complained about the BIBLE VERSES on the dog tags.

You claim to want Religious Freedom for soldiers who fought in battle and yet you hurt the vary one’s that you claim to help.

Soldiers and their families are suffering and dying and you want to take their hope away from them? You don’t care about the soldiers, you are too blinded by hate to care. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Also you should remove the name Military Religious Freedom Foundation from your website and put I Could Care Less About The Suffering Soldiers And Their Families.

Dear, dear (name withheld),

“.. blinded by hate…”?

In your zealotry you are apparently so blinded by the need to find fault with the MRFF that you refuse to look at the facts of the situation in which you insist on inserting yourself and, I’m sorry to have to add, making a fool of yourself.

I’d explain the facts to you, as has been done before, but it apparently doesn’t pierce the armor you have wrapped around your brain. I do wish you’d get help.

Again, you have my sympathy.

Mike Farrell

Ms. (name withheld), your condemning communication would be more constructively directed toward those who disrespect & disregard our American laws rather than at those of us who respect & request compliance with them.
Military members may posses any belief & purchase any scripture they want, but a private commercial business is lawfully prohibited from knowingly & illegally profiting off of them by misrepresenting & mismanufacturing its souvenir merchandise as official government issue military identification tags in violation of its own licensing agreement with the Department of Defense & applicable regulatory laws.
That is, of course, why the military stopped it. It should surprise no one, including you, that Americans are required to comply with American law.

Mr. Weinstein, there is NOTHING WRONG with a santa dressed up in a military uniform holding a sign GOD BLESS AMERICA.

Response from MRFF Founder and President Mikey Weinstein

who;s trying to erase God, ma’am??….we;’re just following our wonderful Constitution…you see the USA is NOT a Christian nation….did you not learn that in high school??…did u go perhaps to college?….America is a secular democratic republic where Christianity has NO special place of privilege over ANY other faith or non-faith tradition….

Yes The United States is based on Christian and Judeo teachings.
We have The Constitutional Right to Pray and to do GOD’S WORK.
There is Nothing that you can do about it.
You are not.

Response from MRFF Founder and President Mikey Weinstein

Quite incorrect, my apparently educationally – challenged friend… There is MUCH we can do about it!!!… Which is why we sue those who violate the Constitution… And we expose them in the media… No need to thank us… We are just doing our jobs… 🙂

  1. Me

    Laws protect religioud freedom for all. Athiests, Islamics, Christians, and Jewish. Undermining one means undermining all. We need to respect the differences and uphold the rights for the individual.

    What you are trying to accomplish is a slippery slope.

  2. Grey One talks sass

    All slopes are slippery, could you be more specific?

    As I see the situation, there are a few people who are ruining everything for everyone. No, not the MRFF because in all of this they are the good people.

    A Christian Nationalist company was told the rules guiding the use of DOD Military logos which they ignored. A display on base incorporating Santa with a military uniform and a God Bless America sign sends the message to anyone not Christian or in the Military that they don’t matter.

    Ignoring the rights of the minority is indeed a slippery slope. Was that your intent? Or are you one of those people who approve of rule breaking as long as it benefits you, yourself Me?
