MRFF Demands Air Force Gate Guards at Joint Base Andrews Immediately Cease Their “Have a Blessed Day” Coded Christian Salutation — With NEW VIDEO from Mikey Weinstein
“… I feel like it’s not a sincere wish that my day be “blessed,” but instead it is a way of signaling to me that they are a Christian.
Are they testing me? I wonder if this phrase is something like a secret-handshake. I also wonder what the “correct” response would be from someone who wanted to signal-back that they too were a Christian. …
… I suppose that saying “have-a-blessed-day” (4 words) gets the point across much more succinctly than “have-a-nice-day-and-by-the-way-I’m-a-Christian-are-you-one-too-and-if-you’re-not-I’m-a-better-person-than-you” (25 words).”

I’ve never served in the US military, but I worked as an employee for a military contractor installing training equipment for several years. And while my religious beliefs are both irrelevant and neither Christian nor Pagan, as a female contractor, I would not be able to help myself reply to “have a blessed day” from a gate guard with a smile and a warm, “Goddess bless.” I got that blessed-day nonsense from shop clerks and such all the time, working in the South where my equipment installations were happening, and graciously ignored it. I’m a lifelong Californian and just wrote it off to being a different culture. (Our standard parting wish is some variant of “have a good [one][day][afternoon][evening].”) But a gate guard? Really? You’re out there with a serious weapon, demanding to see my badge, which is absolutely fine. But then, give me an unmistakably Christian sendoff? Not while I vote and can support MRFF.
All it takes is one Muslim Gate Guard to do the same. Assalamu alaikum (peace be upon you) to which the response is wa alaikum salaam(and unto you peace). Or one Satanist saying Hail Satan. Same Same. One Hail Satan to the “Colonel’s Wife” will do the trick.
It would be interesting to see the reaction of one of those theocrat gate guards (and their supporters) if someone replied to their “Have a Blessed Day” with “Allahu akbar.”
Tom O has the best response! They’d soon stop with the Christian “blessing!”
We should all use that as the standard response. Take the U out and simply say, “Allah Akbar” just to make it flow a bit easier.
If it ever elicits conversation, tell them it’s a descriptor of the Christian God …… and watch their heads explode!
Can be used anywhere, city council meetings, town halls, military invocations – great response – Allah Akbar!
