MRFF ATTACKED BY FOX NEWS

Christian School's
ROTC Under Attack

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Selected Article Excerpts

  • The U.S. Army says they have launched a review of ROTC policies nationwide after the Military Religious Freedom Foundation raised concerns about an ROTC assignment listing for an assistant professor of military science at Wheaton.

  • MRFF noted that the person hired "must be of Christian faith."

  • I'm not sure what the take away here is, folks. But one thing is clear – whenever Mikey Weinstein gets offended – the Obama Pentagon takes action.

MRFF MENTIONED IN
THE AIR FORCE TIMES

Air Force Updated Religious Expression Rules

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Selected Article Excerpts

  • The update to AFI 1-1 has not yet been posted online or released publicly. A draft version of the revised rule -- provided to Air Force Times in June by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, an organization that advocates for the separation of church and state in the military -- would weaken the regulations by dropping language that ordered airmen to "avoid the actual or apparent use of their position to promote their personal religious beliefs to their subordinates or to extend preferential treatment for any religion."

  • In a June 6 letter to Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh, MRFF President Mikey Weinstein said that the language opens the door to discrimination and unwanted proselytization in the Air Force. Weinstein fears that, under the proposed rule, an airman would be allowed to express disdain or disgust for a fellow airman who is gay, lesbian or bisexual, as long as those opinions stem from "sincerely held" religious beliefs. Because such expressions would only be prohibited if they "have a real, not hypothetical adverse impact," Weinstein said the proposed rule set an impossibly high bar for airmen who wish to complain about such prejudicial statements.

    "This policy, if adopted by the USAF, will universally discourage military members from ever filing complaints about religious witnessing and proselytizing for fear that their uncorroborated complaints will be considered merely 'hypothetical,' and not 'real,'" Weinstein wrote in a June letter to Welsh. "The Department of Defense would never adopt such a similar shocking policy shielding abusers regarding sexual assault, sexual harassment and racial discrimination."
