"The Most Unbelievable Story About North Korea That
You Will Read Today"

Wednesday, November 1, 2017

Author: Chris Rodda, MRFF Senior Research Director
Date: Wednesday, November 1, 2017

No, this isn't a story about the current situation with North Korea. It's about another kind of unbelievable story - a story exhibited in a museum run by the U.S. Air Force that is so far-fetched that it is completely impossible to believe.


On October 17, the Air Force Enlisted Heritage Research Institute (AFEHRI) at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama posted some new photos on its Facebook page of an exhibit...


After the photos of this exhibit were posted on the AFEHRI's Facebook page, emails began coming in to the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) from airmen and others who were very disturbed that an exclusively Christian flag was being displayed in a military museum...


According to the story on the exhibit's sign, this flag was supposedly retrieved from the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) in 1960, after having been left outside, leaning against the corner of an alleged chapel, when the DMZ was created. The DMZ was created in 1953. That would mean that this flag was left outside in the elements for seven years...


Now, say by some act of divine intervention, this chapel flag, as well as the U.S. flag that the young airman Luke Holcomb and his friends supposedly retrieved, did miraculously manage to survive those seven years of being left outside. Well, there are still a number other problems with the story.


I decided to call the Air Force Enlisted Heritage Research Institute and ask what documentation they had for it. I was told to email the museum's curator, so I sent him an email saying that the story was extremely difficult, if not impossible, to believe, and requested whatever documentation or other information they had about the story's origin.

A few days later I received a response from the director of AFEHRI, CMSgt Emily E. Shade, in which she wrote:

"As a result of your inquiry and after looking at the framed wording, I concur that the dates and story seem inaccurate. We have removed the photo of the wording from the exhibit, as well as from our Facebook page."


But, switching from my historian hat back to my MRFF hat, the problem now is that all they removed was the sign, making what remains now almost worse - a display of an airman standing next to a large Christian flag for no apparant reason at all.

"MRFF Disrespects Democracy"

Mr. Weinstein,

I am an AF Officer currently assigned as a student at a professional development school here at Maxwell AFB in Montgomery, Alabama.
I am also a Christian. And I have the right to believe everyone should be one and have the chance to hear loud and clear why they should be.

(I want to say from the start that I do not want a reply from you or the usual nest of MRFF attack dogs who attack anyone who disagrees with the MRFF.
My e-mail address will not accept incoming mail from you or your little band of ‘Antifa Black Lives Matter’ troublemakers at the MRFF.)

Regarding the display at the AF Enlisted Heritage Research Institute I have a simple question for you.
Why are you all so afraid of the Christian flag in that post-Korean War exhibit? Does Jesus scare you all so much? Wonder why?
Whether you like it or not our country is still a majority Christian country and a democracy. And based upon and fulfilling the Bible from the get go.

Since we have more Christians in America than other religions it’s to be expected that there will be more Christian symbols and followers everywhere including in our military. Duh!
If the MRFF doesn’t understand how democracy works I would call your attention to our most recent Presidential election.
You see Donald Trump won because he got more electoral votes than the loser Clinton.
Get over it already and get over the fact that there are more Christians in America than jews like you and the other so-called ‘minorities.’

Majority rule is how our democracy works. Duh!
Doesn’t mean the losers don’t have some rights but it does mean that the losers must respect the rights of the winning majority. Majority rule is an American right. A Christian right.

"Mikey Weinstein talks "fighting words" and the military’s religious oppression in the Trump era | Local News | Colorado Springs Independent"

Michael, you might be a little more respectful, of your President. You do know that Trump will serve eight years.

A few days ago, you were singing the praises of General Silveria. Your attitude has certainly changed. What gives? Surely you know that Silveria does not want Queers in the U.S. Military.

Question... did the "victims," at the Prep School ever admit that they were the "perpetrators?"

You are just like your Queer friends, always screaming for attention. That tactic comes straight out of Jew Saul Alinsky’s writing

Most of your Classmates, at your reunion, probably thought that you were an idiot.
