So basically as a Jew you are acting like Hitler….hating Christians. How ironic! Yet Jesus loves you even still.

It is apparent from your acrimonious anti-Semitic, anti-American & anti-Christian attack on a fellow American you do not even know because he was born of a Jewish mother (like Jesus) that you are incapable of communicating in a moral or meaningful manner.
 
1 John 2:9-11 tells us anyone who claims to be in the light but hates her brother is still in the darkness…she does not know where she is going, because the darkness has blinded her. It is recommended you read & reflect on this scripture, discard your darkness & locate a little light. Also, even Jesus separated religion & government (Matthew 22:21; Mark 12:17).

What’s clear here is that you read a tract from Mr. Donohue that has made the rounds and given a number of people a lot of bad information. Donohue has caused a storm of angry and ill-informed condemnation to come our way. I have to say, though, that few of them stooped as low as you did with the Hitler remark. I don’t know if you comprehend how vile such a reference is to someone who lost people in the Holocaust. I hope you will read the below information, consider it and send an apology to Mr. Weinstein

 

You see, Mr. Donohue is wrong. He said, that Mikey Weinstein is an “anti-Christian activist.” And apparently you believed it. It is a lie. An ugly lie. He said a bunch of other things that are not true. Let me explain the facts to you.

 

We agree that military personnel have every right to pray. We have no objection to prayer. We object to inappropriate proselytizing. You see, chaplains have a face book page whereon they can do all the praying and lecturing and teaching and enlightening they’d like. But that’s a separate page from that of the unit leader or commanding officer. The commander’s page may not be used to promote one particular belief system over others because doing so amounts to government endorsement of a particular faith and violates the separation of church and state.

 

The speeches were simply in the wrong place. Some complaints came to us, so we contacted the authorities at the base. They in turn looked at it, saw what was wrong and removed the speeches. No harm, no foul. I don’t know if the speeches were placed on the chaplain’s page where they belonged. I hope  they were.

 

And I hope this helps you better understand what damage lies do.
