To Mr. Weinstein and to the MRFF fighters:

My wife and I just wanted to very much thank all of you for getting that too obvious Christian Crusader imagery for this Thursday’s Nat’l Day of Prayer (NDP) breakfast taken down so quickly.

I am an active duty officer in the U.S. Army and we are also practicing Catholics. Every year we face the same dilemma as this NDP event has become a true litmus test for our Army leaders to figure out which of us supports their extremist Christian agenda and who doesn’t.
It just gets worse each year and especially this year with the election so close and the really bad tensions in our country. We experience it in the military as well and it just divides soldier against soldier.

Our family just wanted to thank all of you at the MRFF for moving so quickly and efficiently to force our many (unfortunately!) Fort Riley Christian extremists to pull that NDP image off of our official website.

I can tell you that there was much gnashing of teeth and major anger about your quick and sudden success here. You jacked up the senior command staff to adhere to your removal demands within just a very few hours of receiving it.

In fact as a personal witness to their reaction some of our leaders here in the 1st Infantry Division (1 ID) were actually “throwing things” in anger.

Good on you all @ the MRFF!

Thank you for all that you at the MRFF do to help our soldiers and fight those who would force their divisive view of their Christian faith upon those of us who are beneath them in our chain of command. Especially other Christians like our family. My wife and I would like to say “bless you all” for your outstanding service to our troopers.

    In the 1980s I participated in designing undergraduate flight officer trainers (radar simulators). As part of the on-site installation team, I observed that many of these undergraduates were, well, young. I assumed they’d grow a bit more.

    Our correspondent in this letter talks of military leaders “throwing things” (implying tantrums that might or might not involve actual physical objects flying through the air). Even my long-ago undergraduate customers were better behaved.
