Active Duty Muslim U.S. Army Officer Outraged

Mr. Weinstien,

As an active duty Muslim U.S. Army Officer, I am outraged  that the U.S. Army would promote a story like this that would insinuate mind sets that Islam is a horrible religion and this woman was only saved because of her conversion to Christianity. While I am happy for her, the Article showed its biased opinion in its approach to Islam. – Active Duty Muslim U. S. Army Officer.

    Huh.

    Did we read the same article letter writer? Because from what I read I didn’t get the whole Islam is bad thing. Feeling defensive about how extremists in your faith treat females?

    The message I received loud and clear is Patriarchy is a system best left on the garbage heap of history. Swap out the location in the narrative for any Christian Nationalist compound and big bada boom, the story is universal.

    I know I sound like a broken record about climate change. This doesn’t mean I’m incorrect. Based on the challenges that face humanity it behooves us to utilize every idea that increases our chances of survival, no matter the genders source of those ideas.

    To achieve my goal of survival I suggest it is past time for the Children of Abraham to accept their holy books are ‘Stories which define them as a people’ and not literal divine law. Refusing to consider an idea because their reproductive parts are innies instead of outies seems to me to be self defeating.

    I read the letter Mikey wrote on behalf of MRFF clients. I must confess I didn’t catch the idea that the only reason the author of the story was rescued and assisted in her career was due to her conversion.

    When I know better I can do better.

    “Let me stress that neither MRFF nor our complainant clients on this matter have any issues with the female soldier who is the subject of this ‘news’ article.”

    You are assuming, Mikey, that this woman exists at all, and is not just a deliberately-conjured up figment of the poster’s imagination. The burden of proof is on that poster to produce said enlisted woman; failure to do so will be convincing evidence that his or her chronicle of this Muslim-turned-Christian was ginned up for the sole purpose of illegally co-opting a taxpayer-funded organ to advance the poster’s own religion, and do so at the expense of others’.

    AL Hern,

    Based on the pictures included I thought the person telling the story was real. Never occurred to me that she might be made up.

    My first thoughts flew to a certain blow hard spokesperson for a specific propaganda outlet and their recent trashing of women in the military. Seeing a story about a strong female leader made me feel better about the military.

    I guess I saw what I wanted to see. How sad to be me right now.
