MRFF Demands USMC Trademark & Licensing Program Revoke License of Company Selling Christian Crusader Coins with Official USMC Emblem

Published On: March 7, 2024|Categories: Featured News|13 Comments|
Back and front of coin showing Christian crusader on one side and Marine Corps emblem on the other

“The use of the USMC Eagle Globe and Anchor on one side of a coin with a highly religious and specific message on the other to me implies religious endorsement in violation of the Establishment Clause.”

“I have no doubt that were this a coin that had an Islamic Ayah with a U.S. military logo on it, there would be riots. …”

“This is the only location on Camp Foster Marines can purchase uniform items which means there is no avoiding this display of implied government endorsement.”

— MRFF U.S. Marine client in Okinawa, Japan

    One of the respondents says that people are to be attracted to Christ by way of the example being provided by Christians.

    Don’t hold your breath! On the other hand, please do, for fifteen or twenty minutes!

    Christianity is on the wane. That’s why the concerted effort to “force” Christian views by way of legislation and Project 2025, a stacked SCROTUM, et al. In other words, by older white guys that have lost their relevancy by all measures.

    All they have left is fear-mongering, the “example” Christian life style on the Right completely removed as a source of recruitment, completely ineffective because they have no examples of what it is to be a Christian. All they have is fear!

    Pitiful! They can’t stop the progressive trends and the “browning” of America.

    Alabama’s new ruling on fertilized eggs in a “peach tree” dish (as MGT calls it), the latest example of good Christian values thwarting their own efforts, IVF treatments in Alabama having been completely stopped because they can’t see beyond the end of their nose! lol. Their own “protection of life” legislation a denial of life!

    Let’s ban school books with pornographic imagery – like the Bible! Too funny.

    They’re eating themselves and their own faith, a good thing.

    The Christian train has left the station on a one-way track to oblivion and it ain’t coming back!

    “Bless your hearts!”

    We’ll get there yet!

    Yes, the hypocrisy of the USA Taliban is obvious. They claim to be promoting religious freedom, but they are really promoting religious coercion and supremacy of their own beliefs. And the Project 2025 plans are built on the same hypocrisy – the Project plans repeat all the Russian/Breitbart conspiracy nonsense about persecution of Trump and “conservatives” by “liberals” in government, then explain that the solution to that alleged oppression is a federal government unified under complete control of the president. They can sell that kind of dictatorship to their feeble-minded base, but intelligent people know it’s an unconstitutional dictatorship.

    “Pitiful! They can’t stop the progressive trends”

    This couldnt be farther from the truth. Progressives make themselves look more foolish every day, we dont have to do anything really. Lately progressive been taking an L on everything. But keep telling yourself bruh…

    Anyone have anything to write that’s relevant to the topic of this article?

  7. Grey One Talks Sass March 8, 2024 at 5:52 pm

    So I have a few questions specific to the topic at hand.

    First – I thought MRFF had addressed this sort of issue a while back. I don’t remember the name of the company who was violating the regs, but the imagery is the same. Maybe the branch was different?

    Second – from the way the article is titled it seems like each branch of the military has their own licensing office. My point is an offending company need only to shop their illegal wares to each office and without any kind of oversite they’d be able to get away with their scam almost indefinitely.

    Third – off topic a bit but still – our resident troll’s first two comments reminded me of a toddler – crying and saying their favorite word No! as only a toddler can. I’ve said it before and will repeat it again – they need a snack or bottle and a nap.

    Fourth – back on topic – I’m glad our service personnel have MRFF and Mikey in their corner. Been going through some of the late husbands papers along with his recollections from his time as a Marine. He may have been rotten to the Corps as he liked to joke but they did not have his back from the beginning. In fact he was far more loyal to the Corps as evidenced by his almost manic need to re-enlist after 9/11 even though he had stage four cancer. He figured he’d die a warrior as his faith demanded while defending his country as his morals demanded.

    In my opinion the Marines didn’t deserve a warrior such as him. I may be expressing my vindictive side but any blowback the Corps receives from their blatant display of Christian nationalism should end the career of whomever approved the offending vendor.

  8. Jeff March 8, 2024 at 7:25 pm

    Yes, Tom, my first two sentences in my first post, above, are relevant to the article.

    These companies selling religious iconography attached to Department of Defense (secular) logos, should be taking notes from Ivanka and Little-Hands. You know, Ivanka gets 22 trademarks from China while serving as an official of the United States. Her husband Jared getting a $2 Billion pay day from the Saudis, not to mention money from the UAE and Qatar. Little-Hands himself with Chinese bank accounts, receiving foreign money from his DC hotel and properties.

    Not to mention using his base’s donations to pay legal bills and his now complete ownership of the RNC, meaning all donations to the MAGAT Party go directly to Dufus Donald! Too fucking funny.

    Every time that 32 year old 757 he owns starts its engines the RNC payola meter starts running. What his base doesn’t know is that for payments to Little-Johnson, the meter runs twice as fast! He double and triple charges the RNC for everything he does.

    He had the military using his properties, charging $500 plus a night TDY money charged to the taxpayer! Instead of an Air Force C-17 refueling in Ramstein, Germany, he’d make them fly to Ireland and stay in one of his properties. Not even a reach-around in terms of thanks for your tax dollars!

    C’mon MAGATs, Dear Leader needs those donations! If you were thinking about buying tools to fill your pockets with before you walk into the ocean, don’t do that! Send that money to Donny Bankrupt! He needs about $550 Million right now not to mention attorney fees. Forget your church, send that money to Trippy Trump!

    Get yourself some of those “never surrender” T-shirts that have his mugshot surrendering, but only if made in China and shipped from Mar-A-Lardo! Make sure that money goes to Two-Bit Trump!

    And forget military challenge coins with religious inscriptions on the back. Trippy is coming out with his own USMC challenge coins with him and Stormy on the back inscribed with, “Don’t Pee On Me!” I think they’re gonna run about $60 dollars a piece but they will be zinc coated with copper in the Lincoln tradition direct from his tie manufacturer in China!

    If he can just hold out, he can get back in office and start shaking down corporations for money. Hell, if he can just privatize social security, at 6% management fees, that’s about $180 Billion a year!

    Lots of money to be made once he gets back in. You’re gonna have to take a 30% hit on social security and Medicare co-pays will go up, but hey, that’s the price of getting this country back on a grift track! Small price to pay.

    OK, don’t forget to buy some merch now. Little-Hands is, literally, counting on it!

    Even if he doesn’t get back in, he’s going to be selling prison merch to include, as I understand it, a co-label deal with the Elvis estate for a remake of “Jail House Rock!” Look out for it! Don’t forget the coupon code “smalljohnson45!”

    Hey ya’ll,

    I sent out a donor appeal in my last post but sounds like no one is listening. Trippy Trump needs some money bro!

    Donors are drying up! What’s up y’all? Y’all need to drop a few church donations and send that money to Trippy!

    You saw him salute the flag at his latest campaign rally, no one more military than Trippy! Well, except for maybe Tommy Tuberville!

    He’s doing this for YOU! I mean, nobody wants the social security Ponzi scheme anymore and he said he’s gonna cut it! Everyone was living longer under Trippy, well, except for the COVID folks, but it means everyone can work longer. Nobody wants Social Security! And nobody wants Medicare! Hell, if we could just funnel some of that money to Trippy, we could get him reelected. And you’re gonna be SO RICH! Just like last time!

    He’s gonna put a 100% tariff on electric vehicles. Nobody wants electric vehicles! We want something we can put gas and oil into! Who doesn’t like going to a gas station? You know, you get to talk to your neighbors at the pump while you’re filling your tank. But we gotta get Trippy back in office first so we can enjoy those Trump steaks again!

    Damn y’all! Call your rich friends and remind them that they need to donate! Oh, wait a minute, you don’t have any rich friends, the Dems took away all that money you got from Trump! Hate when that happens!

    Well, give your church money to Trippy just until after the election. Preacher Man will understand – he fully supports Trippy.

    Don’t make Lindsey Graham cry again on National TV tryna get some cash for Little-Hands. I hate seeing Lindsey crying, it’s so demeaning for a United States Senator.

    Trippy is already calling for a blood bath if he doesn’t get elected. I don’t want to see more good Christians locked up! We got to get these boys out of jail and into Trippy’s cabinet! The Proud Boys are gonna be running Homeland Security but we gotta get them out of jail first!

    They’re getting ready to sell off Trump Towers for God’s sake! And that’s not all. The banks get their money first, then the Government gets taxes, what’s left over can be used for bond money, which means he’s gonna lose a lot of great properties if y’all don’t start sending in money! Don’t let that happen! Eric and Don Jr need their vacation homes! Ivanka needs her Chinese trademarks!

    Buy a Trump tie for God’s sake! Straight from one of the best tie making companies in China! It doubles as a tow rope! What’s not to like?

    Everyone knows Mar-A-Lardo is worth $1.8 Billion but he can’t get that much in a fire sale! He’ll prolly only get around $18 million, but then he’s got to pay creditors, taxes, he’ll be lucky to break even.

    Send in at least a dollar for Christ’s sake! Pray and send a note to the Russian Embassy in DC. Ask Putin to help his comrade! Where’s Putin when you need him? We’ve already said we’re gonna give Ukraine to the Russians once Trippy gets back in! After all the help we gave Putin when Trump was in office, you’d think he’d be willing to help a brutha, I mean a comrade, out! Where’s them Russian oligarchs when you need them?

    It’s already well past his jail time! Send Trippy some money NOW! The future of Russia, I mean, the U.S. depends on it!

    I thought “Trippy” was the moronic “catholic” big rig driver who literally trips his way up flights of stairs.

    “I sent out a donor appeal in my last post but *sounds like no one is listening”*.”

    Correct, nobody in your life listens to you.

    Awwww, poor oopsie daisy.

    He tries soooo hard! Such a shame.

    MAGATville’s a hard place to live! I’m told though that after awhile you just get used to the smell!

    Good luck oopsie! Keep working on that GED!
