Freedom

At least you can not stop people from praying. People wonder why this world has gotten worse. Groups like yours are the reason. The military fights for our freedom. You guys are trying your best to take it away. Good try. You will never stop people from praying. You will NEVER kill Christianity. All you are is a ridiculous nuisance. Thank you for making the faith of the true Christian that much stronger.

It is apparent from your angry attack you have been misinformed. No one is trying to “stop people from praying.”
 
Please be advised the US Constitution, American law & US Armed Forces regulations prohibit our secular military, as part of our secular government, from promoting or endorsing a religion except in military chapels & military chaplain channels (e.g. military chaplain Facebook pages). Military chaplains may not proselytize their version of religion on official military channels (e.g. commander, unit or installation Facebook pages) which are strictly secular by law & regulation. Military chaplains are fully advised & well aware of this legal restriction. That is why the unlawful practice was stopped by the military itself after complaints from military personnel, including many Christians. Military chaplains have to obey laws & regulations just like other military personnel.

I am a Christian and a friend of Mikey Weinstein and the MRFF.  They are trying to protect “all” faiths in the military.  It is doing a disservice to all Christians when an overzealous commander forces or commands his/her subordinates to attend a Christian event or watch an overly Christian film.  You are right, we always have the freedom of prayer and as such, we should pray for our Christian and non-Christian brothers and sisters in the military.  We cannot proselytize or force our beliefs on others anymore than they can force theirs on us.  Our Constitution protects all citizens in this respect.  So keep on praying and know there are many other Christians doing the same.

God Bless

    Nobody has taken away any of my freedoms. I can still practice my religion freely in the military and get the full support of my command. Nobody is removing chaplains content from the chaplain’s pages on Facebook or even on the internal networks. Everything is still accessible and open. What matters is that *every* faith has the same opportunities and nobody is forcing one belief or practice on another. MRFF is doing a fantastic job of protecting ALL of our practices equally!
