Christian rights

Americans are free right now to be a Christian or not. Your organization doesn’t need to start tearing down whatever you don’t believe in. Now go play nice and leave things alone for those that honor what we have. You believe what you want and don’t act anti-American with any cancel culture crap!!!
 
Thank you,

Response from the Founder and President of  MRFF Mikey Weinstein
Sorry, (name withheld), having trouble understanding what you seem to be a little bit upset about?… We are a large civil rights organization representing over 73,000 members of the military and veterans… 95% of them are Christians… We have over 550 people paid and volunteer who work here… About 84% are Christians… So I’m having a little trouble understanding why do you think we are stamping on Christian rights?… In Monument Colorado, eight of the 12 families who came to us for help-all of them military or veterans – are also practicing Christians… Maybe you wanna rephrase your statement to us now?… Thanks for trying to keep an open mind… Mikey Weinstein/MRFF…

Response from MRFF Advisory Board Member Mike Farrell

Hi Miss (name withheld),

I think Mikey laid out the facts, in case you’re interested in facts. But I’m afraid, based on what you’ve said here, that you might not be interested in the facts at all. Your use of the term “cancel culture” and your assertion that what we’re doing is somehow “anti-American” leads me to suspect that you’re in the habit of filling yourself with the kind of misinformation that’s all too available these days from those less interested in truth and more interested in pushing their right-wing agenda.

But for the record, we’re well aware of the fact that Americans “are free right now to be a Christian or not.” In fact, most of the people associated with our organization are Christians. But they’re also people who believe laws should be honored and obeyed, so when they see that something violates the law they do something about it.

That’s what this little issue is about, which you’d understand if you knew the facts. So I hope Mikey’s explanation has clarified things for you. If so, let us know. If not let us know that and I’ll be happy to help clarify it.

Mike Farrell
(MRFF Board of Advisors)

    Equality feels like persecution to those who have only known privilege.

    “Americans are free right now to be a Christian or not.”

    Yes, and the U.S. military helps defend that freedom. But Americans are also free to be Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs and every other religion they may choose to follow, or that they grew up in, but using public resources, including the land on which that memorial was illegally placed, as well as those of the U.S. Armed Forces, themselves, seriously impiges on all those other religions who aren’t being given the same unfair advantages that you apparently believe only Christians are entitled to.
