Military Religious Freedom

What person cowering under the umbrella of “military” would call himself  “mikey” like a two-year old child? Or perhaps you haven’t yet reached the age of reason just yet which I think is six. Pretty low testosterone for an adult male I would say.
Don’t you ever think about eternity?  And the high degree of virtue in action and authentic worship of the Triune God it takes to get there?
It is one serious offense to ignore God and his commandments and quite another to try to stop well-intentioned moral people from doing what their hearts and minds tell them to do, especially on the Lord’s day.
I can only hope our Blessed Savior and his holy Mother can convince you to join the winning team before it is too late.
I will try to pray for you but it won’t be easy.   “Mikey”
ST. Michael, please protect our military.

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 or military religious channels. Military chaplains may not proselytize their religion version as official sponsored military religion on secular military channels. That is why the unlawful practice was stopped by the military itself after complaints from military members, including Christians.
 
Your self-righteous sermon was morally misdirected & would be more rationally redirected at those who disrespect & disregard our laws & regulations rather than at those of us who respect & request compliance with them.

It’s hard to get past the self-satisfied snottiness in your message to attempt a reply, but we try to respond to
all correspondence.
Noting your reference to “well-intentioned moral  people” and assuming you still manage to consider yourself one,
I’ll endeavor to address her.
The article that apparently brought out the most self-satisfied and condescending attributes of one who considers herself to be a member of “the winning team” contained at least one damnable lie and a lot of misinformation and mischaracterization.
If it interests you at all to hear the actual facts I’ll take the time to straightforwardly clarify things for you, but to quote you, “it won’t be easy.”
