The Military Religious Freedom Foundation, the ‘atheist’ organization headed by Mikey Weinstein, an Air Force Academy and former Judge Advocate General who has waged war on Christianity in our nations Armed Forces.

Now, I place ‘atheist’ in quotations because, while Weinstein himself is Jewish, his organization has been hell-bent on eradicating any and all religious influence from our nation’s military, including Judaism.  But his principle focus has been what he terms ‘militant Christian fundamentalism’.  Another glaring example of this organizations bigotry and hatred toward Christians has played out in South Carolina.

According to Fox News, a number of airmen were so terribly distressed by the sight of a nativity scene at Shaw Air Force Base that they called in the MRFF thugs to rout it out.  Weinstein got on the horn to his pals in the Pentagon and within hours, the nativity scene was removed.  What sort of goods does Weinstein have to command such pull?

What Weinstein and the MRFF do is cite such displays as unconstitutional.  I’ve told you before and I will tell you again-there is NO reference to ‘separation of church and state’ in the United States Constitution.  The concept, as such, is based upon a letter written by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptists.  And bigots like Weinstein like to trumpet how our founders were Deists, rather than Christians, to bolster their positions.

Weinstein, MRFF and others are particularly fond of parading Jefferson as the great champion of deism and as anti-Christian as they come.  It’s all a bunch of contrived nonsense really.  According to World Net Daily, “Notes on Religion,” nine documents Jefferson wrote in 1776, are “very orthodox statements about the inspiration of Scripture and Jesus as the Christ”.  They cite the work of Mark Beliles, a Providence Foundation scholar and author of an essay on Jefferson’s religious life.

But the main issue at hand right now is this strong arming of our nation’s military by the MRFF and Weinstein.  I think it’s time our elected officials in Congress, all 435 of them, had a ‘come to Jesus’ meeting with Mikey and the Pentagon.  Enough is enough.
