Our Founder & President Mikey Weinstein, a patriotic American, military veteran & USAF Academy honor graduate, speaks for the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. It is the only non-profit constitutional rights organization dedicated solely to defending the religious freedom of American military men & women to which they are entitled under the US Constitution & US Armed Forces regulations. For this pro-bono advocacy led by spokesman Mikey Weinstein, the Foundation has been officially nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize 7 times.
Also, Mikey Weinstein has spoken for approximately 72,000 military members, including several thousand USAF academy cadets, who requested their right to determine, practice and enjoy their religious or non-religious beliefs like all Americans be protected from self-righteous religionists who disrespect their right & impose uninvited & unwanted religious beliefs upon them in the military environment adversely affecting morale, efficiency & readiness.
Additionally, Mikey Weinstein speaks for countless patriotic Americans who respect our US Constitution, laws & military regulations & believe our military men & women deserve their protection. We regret you are not one of them.

Hi (name withheld),
Hope we never have to speak for you. But if you ever find yourself facing discrimination, or if you ever see
it impacting others, we’re ready to help.

Obama got the Nobel prize within weeks of taking office for doing nothing. 
You don’t speak for me either. 
You people need to learn about what separation of church and state meant and still should mean.

For your information, separation of church & state meant & still means the right to freedom of belief (religious or non-religious) guaranteed by the US Constitution for all Americans, including members of the military. It is our original American individual liberty.
For your enlightenment, attached is a copy of my article which will be published on the Military Religious Freedom Foundation website (militaryreligiousfreedom.com) for National Religious Freedom Day observed on January 16.

    If you think that there is, or should be, no separation of chuch and state, and that the purpose of the institutions of taxpayer-funded U.S. government, including the military, is to advance your religion, or anyone’s religion, then you obviously think that YOU speak for others who might write the six words you wrote to Mikey, and direct them at YOU.
