So Mr. Mikey Weinstein we see that you and your MRFF cronies are always in the news everywhere with your singular objective of further crucifying Christians especially those of us in the military services.

We say ”further crucifying Christians” because you and your hebrew bloodline lineage is already guilty as sin for crucifying our Lord Jesus Christ. Luke 23:21

You jews have a scripturally based heritage of lies and murder and working with your father satan. John 8:44

We have just one question for you and your fellow sinners at the MRFF. And that is just how many more Christians need to be crucified by you all before you will become satisfied with the carnage you have created and cease your relentless attacks on us?

You and that MRFF are destroyers and rebels against our Savior Christ Jesus Mr. Mikey Weinstein. And you will be dealt with accordingly by The Arm of The Lord. 2 Thessalonians 1:

Dear Anonmother or Whoever wrote this screed:

 I hesitate to answer your email because it is simply erroneous and vicious antisemitism and truly not worth the time it will take me to say so.  You demonstrate the poorest understanding of your own Scriptures and certainly twist them to point a damning finger at Mikey and the MRFF.  The very last thing Mikey and friends are interested in is crucifying Christians.  If anything, he and the MRFF are attempting to provide the space where you can have your beliefs, sorted as some are, and the ones you would seek to persecute, threaten and condemn would have theirs as well. We even go so far as to protect our supplicants from religion being shoved down their throats by people like yourselves. Your hatred will keep you up at night.  Your false and vindictive accusations will wind up having you eating your livers.  Have you not understood the central message of your faith?  Neither have you digested Christ’s love nor have you understood the Constitution of the United States which Mikey and the MRFF are sworn to uphold and protect. You and your ilk represent the sorriest bottom feeders in America, using your religion as a battering ram, mocking the righteous, and sullying their efforts.  You are living lives of shame and rage.  One can only wish some level of enlightenment for you before you drown in your own bile.

Your acrimonious & anonymous anti-Semitic, Anti-Christian & anti-American religious racist ranting reflects only on yourself & reveals brainless bigotry & moronic malevolence. Falsifying your identity is cowardly, contemptible & confirms lack of courage & conviction.For your information, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation is a non-profit civil rights advocacy organization (composed of 85% Christians) & 7 time Nobel Peace Prize nominee for its advocacy. We represent over 74,000 military men & women (95% of whom are Christians) who requested their right to the religious freedom guaranteed them under the US Constitution be protected. We proudly & patriotically represent them & will continue to do so.

For your enlightenment, our countless American versions of Christianity are foreign imports from the ancient Semitic Middle East & branches off the ancient tree of Judaism. Jesus, his disciples & the biblical authors were Jewish. There would be no Christianities without the Jewish faith, culture & people. God created all human beings equal & it was very good (Genesis 1:27&31), there is no difference between Jew & Gentile for we all are one (Romans 10:12; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Galatians 3:28) & God gives glory, honor & peace for everyone who does good – first for the Jew, then for the Gentile, for God does not show favoritism (Romans 2:10&11). Moreover, real Christians do not hate their fellow human beings (Mark 12:31; Luke 10:27; 1 John 2:9-11).

Mr. Weinstein and the MRFF would not be in the news if so many so-called Christians didn’t misunderstand the Great Commission because his objective is NOT what you ignorantly assume. His objective is for all of God’s children, including those who reject God because God gave us free will, to be able to do their jobs without harassment.
We all sin, and we can all be forgiven, as the people who actually crucified Christ specifically were. Luke 23:34
We were pointedly told not to judge, as the Bible was given to us to use as a mirror for our own lives, not to run around telling everyone else how horrible they are. In John 8:44, Jesus specifically spoke to men who had corrupted the covenant that God made with Abraham, but it can also be used as a warning for ourselves. Are we keeping the New Covenant? Are we loving our neighbor? If we are not following Jesus’s commandment, God is not our Father, either. 
The “carnage” that the MRFF is creating is of people who have corrupted Jesus’s commandments and do not understand how to love their enemy, so the answer to your question is that satisfaction will come when all Christians act like Christians.
Again, using 2 Thessalonians 1:8 as a mirror, are we following the Gospel of our Lord? We are COMMANDED to love our neighbor, and everyone is our neighbor. How we live our lives is our witness, and threats are judgement. God is the only judge. Our job is to love.

Dear Christian Military Spouses and Anonymous Mothers,

You see nothing. And you testify falsely. Your sense of history is as crooked as is your understanding of Christ’s teaching. Your anti-Semitism is alarming only because of the ignorance it betrays. We’re not surprised by anti-Semitism, we see it all the time from faux-Christians who delude themselves into thinking they are somehow superior beings on the basis of their claim of allegiance to Jesus, a false claim based on a lack of understanding of what it truly means to be a Christian.
We have just one question for you and your fellow bigots at Concerned Christian Military Spouses and Anonymous Mothers. And that is just how many more self-glorifying simpletons need to drape themselves in sanctimony and pretend to honor Christ while defiling everything He stands for before you get sick of yourselves and quit promoting bigotry?
You and the other Concerned Christian Military Spouses and Anonymous Mothers are destroyers of the true teachings of Jesus; you are the very antithesis of the Sermon on the Mount.

   There is a consistent thread of reaction whenever I read the emails sent to my friend and brother Mikey, by those such as you, Nonmothers..  with the focused on punishment and damnation.  It causes me to ponder on how you were raised as a child, since
there is nothing that manifests Jesus of Nazareth, the One who modeled His life in service to others.  Another key, is the apparent void in the Gifts of the Spirit, as that would be revealed in one who walks withDecernment. Jesus, enfolded compassion and a precious truth that only true followers of His word can understand. In Matt 5-7,  His followers are instructed to be clear examples of a Spirit that reveals the path to being called Blessed.  There is nothing Christlike in your email Nonmothers, that even hints at a spirituality that instructs on the need to be meek or peaceful or merciful or righteous or pure of heart. But rather you sprew out hatred and harshness towards your fellow man. Example here is Mikey Weinstein along with  the many of us who support the MRFF, ones  you’ve never even met..and when you are directly instructed to align with the higher qualities of spiritual being that define a true follower.  There is a sadness in the knowing so many of you have not evolved spiritually but render yourselves as pathetic individuals who walk in contradiction to the manner in which He preached and lived by example.  Blessed be,

To the Cowardly and Godless Anti-Semites Threatening Mr. Weinstein

I am a recently retired Christian Navy Chaplain with almost 40 years combined service in the Army and Navy. Likewise, I grew up as a Navy Brat. I am a combat veteran and a historian. I am a friend and associate of Mr. Weinstein. I will not reiterate the facts about Mr. Weinstein and the Military Religious Freedom Foundation for other supporters and board members far more notable than me have already schooled you on these facts. Instead, I am going to take the scalpel of a Holocaust Historian and expose you for what you are.  
I read your email to Mr. Weinstein. Sadly, I was not surprised to see such an angry and venomous outpouring of anti-Jewish filth flowing from people in the United States claiming to be Christians. 
Honesty, I doubt if whoever sent this is a mother, or if such a group exists, although I do admit that the the author could be the spouse of one of Mr. Weinstein’s hate filled opponents. However, my training as a Chaplain and Historian causes me to operate on a basis of suspicion when the writer of such a vulgar screed claims to be a Christian and uses the most notorious anti-Semitic tropes to attack a man and organization devoted to the religious liberties of ALL AMERICANS, especially those that serve our country.
I might be wrong but I personally think that this anti-Semitic screed comes from a White Supremacist or Neo-Nazi trying to cover his tracks by claiming to represent “Anonymous Concerned Christian Military Spouses.”
Why would I say such a thing you ask? Well, let me retort. Your email was among the most crude and evil anti-Jewish attacks that I have read in this country. As a historian one of my specialties is the Holocaust, where people just like you planned and perpetrated the single most targeted, methodical, and brutal genocide in the history of humanity.
They were the Nazis and I have no doubt in my soul that you are as well. However, the smartest of the Holocaust perpetrators tried to camouflage their language and use euphemisms to appear more civilized. Instead, you write in a manner similar to Julius Streicher, the Nazi Gauleiter of Nuremberg and publisher of “Der Stürmer,“ the Nazi tabloid filled with the most vile words and descriptions of Jews in history.
Streicher, was tried, convicted and executed as one of the major Nazi War Criminals at Nuremberg. American Associate Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson served as the chief American Prosecutor during that trial. Jackson referred to Streicher as a “Venomous Vulgarian.”

At the trial of the major war criminals the Nazi propagandist Julius Streicher was condemned to death for crimes against humanity. He had never killed a Jew, nor was he active in planning the war. However, it was the incessant propaganda that Streicher published week after week for twenty-five years which made him an accessory to the deaths of millions of people. A generation of Germans who had been brought up on Streicher’s anti-Semitic hate speech committed acts “so vast and heinous that they beggar the imagination.”

The tribunal said of Streicher:

“For his 25 years of speaking, writing, and preaching hatred of the Jews, Streicher was widely known as ‘Jew-baiter Number 1.’ In his speeches and articles, week after week, month after month, he infected the German people with the virus of anti-Semitism, and incited the German people to active persecution… Streicher had charge of the Jewish boycott of April 1, 1933. He advocated the Nuremberg decrees of 1935. He was responsible for the demolition on August 10, 1938, of the synagogue in Nuremberg. And on November 10, 1938, he spoke publically in support of the Jewish pogroms which were taking place at that time. But it was not only in Germany that this defendant advocated his doctrines. As early as 1935 he began to call for the annihilation of the Jewish race… With knowledge of the extermination of the Jews in the Occupied Eastern Territories, this defendant continued to write and publish the propaganda of death… Streciher’s incitement to murder and extermination at the time when the Jews of the East were being killed under the most horrible conditions clearly constitutes persecution on racial grounds in connection with war crimes, as defined in the charter, and constitutes a crime against humanity.”

“The defendant Streicher is an accessory to the persecution of the Jews within Germany and in occupied territories which culminated in mass murder of an estimated six million men, women, and children. The propaganda in Der Stürmer and other Streicher publications, for which he had admitted responsibility, was of a character calculated to stir up fanatic fear and hatred of the Jewish people and to incite to murder…Through propaganda designed to incite hatred and fear, defendant Streicher devoted himself, over a period of twenty-five years, to creating the psychological basis essential to carrying through a program of mass murder. This alone would suffice to establish his guilt as an accessory to the criminal program of extermination.”That my dear lady or pseudo-Gentleman, is what you are. You are a venomous vulgarian, fueled by race hatred and anti-Semitism who would not hesitate to kill in the name of your ideology of race hatred. Your attacks on Mr. Weinstein are not reflective of the Gospel and completely antithetical to the the attitude of Jesus toward his own people.
The ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu wrote:
“Watch your thoughts, they become your words; watch your words, they become your actions; watch your actions, they become your habits; watch your habits, they become your character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny.”
Your destiny is to become a perpetrator of Genocide under the banner of defending Christians for the “evil Jews.” It is one of the oldest tropes in the world, so I am calling you out on it since you are too cowardly to identify who you are and use a fake or spoofed email address to attempt to hide your identity.
Be assured, that if I can ever find out who you really are I will expose you. I promise. As a Christian Priest I will defend my Jewish brother Mikey and all of his faith from Nazis like you. Now you must be really offended, I called you a “Nazi.” You might outwardly bristle at the accusation, but in your heart you know that I speak the truth. The truth is that if you ever gained political power that you would gladly commit the atrocities that I speak. 
I know history. I have been to four concentration camp locations, a Nazi T4 Euthanasia Center, the Wansee House where the “Final Solution” was coordinated by mid-level bureaucrats. My primary professor as an undergraduate and first year graduate student was an interpreter and interrogator at Nuremberg. While I do not know who you are I know what your are. 
Historian, Dr. Timothy Snyder wrote:
“The European history of the twentieth century shows us that societies can break, democracies can fall, ethics can collapse, and ordinary men can find themselves standing over death pits with guns in their hands. It would serve us well today to understand why.”
Sadly, from your words I can reasonably infer that you would take the same path. Your words say so.
Unlike you, I sign my real name and use my real email address, you Venomous Vulgarian and cowardly Neo-Nazi.  
Sincerely but not Respectfully,
Fr. Steve Dundas, CDR, Chaplain Corps, US Navy (Retired)

 How many more?  If I could count the ignorance of dashboard Jesus Christians, I could give you a guess.  Ardent right wing evangelicals are a plague of biblical proportions against the New Testament.  The misguided and the deplorables who bible bite to make their arguments are the disciples of the anti-Christ.  Steeped in hated and bigotry, their hollow condemnations of others echo white exceptionalism’s parochial view of reality.  The venomous prattle that they serve up as a truth is a desperate salve for their intellectual and social inferiority. They  are the poster children of the, “hate your next door neighbor, but don’t forget to say grace”  school of the fringe  faithless –  self professed but shallow water Christians.  Those who espouse the merits of intolerance, hated, and bigotry, believing they are aligned with the gospel of Jesus Christ, are on the road to perdition. You might try a deeper reading of the Word. Do not judge lest ye be judge, the arm of the Lord will sweep away the blasphemers on the last day.

    Sounds like the ranting of a crazy person. Christians and Jews have co-existed for 2000 years. Jews and Christians aren’t the religions trying to impose their will on the world. As a Christian I’m impressed every day by the Jewish peoples resolve. I wish you peace.

    Concerned Christian Military Spouses and Mothers is trying really hard to prove that Christians are hypocritical bullies. But we who judge people by their actions, and not by stereotypes and bias, know that these ignorant bigots only embarrass themselves and reveal their own ignorance and hate. They don’t represent all Christians or an accurate portrayal of Jesus’ alleged teachings. They are doomed to poison themselves with their own words, but they will never understand or appreciate the values and sacrifice of a man like Mikey Weinstein, and the decency and integrity of the MRFF board members who replied to the original message.
