"When one proudly dons a U.S. Military uniform, there is only one religious symbol: the American flag. There is only one religious scripture: the American Constitution. Finally, there is only one religious faith: American patriotism."

To all of the woke weakling pusies at the MRRF:
Maybe you all could finally get a life and stop trying to take Jesus out of the lives of our soldiers and sailors and airmen?
I’ve seen stupid in my life but you all are just the stupidest of all.
Especially your fearless leader Mickey Wienstien.
Crawl back under the commie rocks you all slithered out from.
Better yet just leave America to real Americans and go back to Russia Israel and China.
A True American Patriot and Christian MAGA!

Your moronic malevolence against fellow Americans you do not know reflects only on yourself & reveals only your own hate-filled hypocrisy.
You are no true patriot. Our true patriots are the military men & women who take a sworn oath to support & defend the US Constitution and bear true faith & allegiance to the same. They know we are one nation under our Constitution & it is the Constitution in which we trust. They also know the Constitution as well as Department of Defense directives & Armed Forces regulations prohibit our military from endorsing or evangelizing any religion. Military chapels are available for those who want religious worship & military chaplains are available for those who want religious instruction.
You are no true Christian. Christians do not hate their neighbors (see 1 John 2:9-11;Matthew 22:39; Mark 12:31; Luke 10:27; Psalm 50:17-21). Renaissance Philosopher Machiavelli wisely warned those who cannot avoid being hostile to their neighbors are ungrateful to God (“Exhortation to Penitence”).

Dear lost MAGA-head, Your message perfectly conveys the self-consuming ignorance in which you’ve chosen to enwrap yourself. If your brain wasn’t so frozen with fear and ignorance I’d be happy to explain how mistakenyou are, but it’s clear you’re so far down the rabbit hole of misery you’d not only be unwilling todeal with the truth, you’d be unable to recognize it. The only worthwhile admission in this grotesquely immature message is that you admit to having “seen stupid in my life.” You’ve not only seen it, pal, you’ve imbibed it to the degree that you personify it.

Dear True American Patriot Christian MAGA!:
I know my comments will probably go way over your head, but if you are trying to insult someone, why not take the time to spell everything correctly? You misspelled two words in your short, insulting email: “pusies,” by which I think you mean “pussies”; and “Wienstien,” by which I think you mean “Weinstein.” You are clearly quite uneducated and vulgar—we all understand what “Let’s go Brandon” is supposed to stand for—so your alleged Christianity is undercut by your sophomoric attempt at discourse with a man—Mikey Weinstein, Founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF)—who is clearly your superior in intellect and in concern for the men and women who serve our country in uniform.
If your email is any indication of who you are, I can safely say that you never served in a uniform that did not have black-and-white stripes on it or was of a bright orange color, and that you probably struggled to get through eighth grade. Your belief that the MRFF is anti-religion is simply false, not to put too fine a point on it. MRFF’s goal is to follow the dictates of our Founding Fathers, men like Washington, Jefferson, and Madison. These men were smart enough to establish a country that respected all religions, favoring none and discriminating against no one because of their habits of worship. Contrary to your assertion, MRFF does not “try to take Jesus out of the lives of our soldiers and sailors and airmen.” To the contrary, MRFF works to ensure that everyone in our armed forces has the right to worship—or not worship—as their conscience directs. Such a concept is probably too subtle for you, as you seem to embrace and display a simplistic understanding of our Constitution and what it stands for. Perhaps you should try reading that document sometime, especially Article VI, part 3 and Amendment 1. I won’t tell you what these Constitutional provisions contain, as I want you to be surprised when you read them (or have someone read them to you).
I often respond to email diatribes on behalf of MRFF, and I am absolutely confident that any discussion of what the Constitution actually means would be lost on a cretin who falls back on “Let’s go Brandon” as the core message that they embrace. MRFF is a non-partisan organization, and its leadership and associates have worked for both Republicans and Democrats. Your ignorance transcends politics and simply marks you as one of those non-thinking Americans who do not believe in the Constitution our Founders so masterfully drafted during those hot summer days of 1787. That’s really unfortunate, for if you had even a modicum of understanding of the basis of our republic, you would be praising Mikey Weinstein and MRFF, not attacking them.

Subject: I think you have it wrong, (name withheld) Dear TAPC: I’m not going to give any nasty back to your email.
It’s not that anyone is trying to take Jesus out of you, it’s that the Constitution says that you—in the military, and particularly when/if you’re superior officers—don’t have any right to try to put jesus in anywhere except your own hearts unless you’re doing it off base. If some Christians in the military could just get the idea of the base perimeter as the boundary inside of which all persons have a right to their faith (or no faith if they choose) without pressure to hear about other faiths while on the job or in government facilities, all of us would have a much easier job. We don’t care which faith gets pushy; anyone trying for converts or saying any faith gets or deserves special treatment using the military as a captive audience is equally on the wrong side of the argument. I’ve watched the MRFF stick up for a whole ton of Christians who, like me, support leaving religion out of military operations except on a personal level.

Dear MAGA Traitor and Heretic, You call those Mr.Weinstein and us at MRFF “weakling pussies” but you are such a coward that you use a fake email address and claim to represent a nonexistent foundation. Your snowflake is melting fast you feckless fascist. One cannot serve MAGA and God. The vast majority, over 90%of Mr. Weinstein’s employees, volunteers and clients, are overwhelming Christians. It is hard to believe that you could be one, or for that matter one who believes in the principles of the Declaration of Independence and law of the Constitution and the Uniform a code of Military Justice. I am assuming that you know very little about the current religious composition of our military. With the exception of the various Chaplains Corps the ranks are fleeing the Christian church and Christ because of asshats like you, just like young people all across the country. I know this because I served 28 of nearly 40 years in the military as an Army and Navy Chaplain and you are so full of shit that a bottle of Drano couldn’t clean out your polluted soul. But as Mark Twain said: “Consider the average intelligence of the common man, then realize 50% are even stupider.” Count yourself in the bottom half. Toodles you stupid fascist. You know neither Scripture or God. Trump is your god, not a Jesus. With the greatest of disrespect, I am yours, (name withheld)
