Also featured: Popov blessing a group of soldiers about to go out on a patrol: "I pray that you would give them the ability to exterminate the enemy and to accomplish the task that they're been sent forth by God and country to do. In Christ's name I pray. Amen."

Mr. President-elect: Please Don't
Allow Pete Geren To Be Kept On

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

By: Chris Rodda

Reading an article in The Washington Post last week speculating about who will and won't be retained in the incoming administration's Defense Department, I was quite alarmed by the possibility that Preston "Pete" Geren might be kept on as Secretary of the Army.

Dear Mikey Weinstein and
Military Religious Freedom Foundation,

My oldest boy seperated out of the National Guard last year and told me that if you do not go to church pretty much all opportunity at choice work assignment, accelerated advancement, whatever, is denied, EVERYTHING opportunity-wise is networked in the military these days at church......

Hello,

This message is intended for Michael Weinstein.

Dear Mr. Weinstein,

I feel that you degrade the military service of all of our men and women by secularizing the military. When you asked Dr. MacArthur what planet he was from, I would like to ask YOU what planet you are from. I understand that there are many different religions in the military, but please do not try and make it seem as though most are not Christian. Most people in the military, just like most people in the country, are at least nominally Christian. For your statistic about how 3/4 of the people who came to you were Protestant, and 1/4 was whatever else, what proportion were those to the rest of the general population at the Pentagon? Who the hell are you to step in the way of the beliefs of those who are defending you? Do you think that this is your divine right to destroy the nation? I hope that you think long and hard about the road that you have chosen by trying to actively secularize this nation, when that was NOT the intention of the founding fathers. Where in the Constitution, not your little legal technicalities, is this, that those in uniform cannot proselytize? Church and state may come together at times, like they have without attack until recently from those who seek to turn this nation into a secular nightmare. We conservatives are not through just yet. Where did you go to law school? Uncle Joe's Online 30 Minute Law Course?

Respectfully,

You be our researcher

The constitutional violations occurring in our military are so numerous and widespread that we can't possibly find all of them ourselves. MRFF counts on its supporters and volunteers -- the indispensable "eyes and ears" who alert us to everything from the most egregious of constitutional violations to articles we might be interested in.

So, keep the emails coming, and never think that anything is too insignificant or assume that we might already know about it. You never know -- you might have stumbled into the next bombshell of a story and not even realize it.

Please report anything that
may be of concern to:
