SEDALIA, Mo. (AP) - A nonprofit civil rights group advocating for religious freedom in the military is accusing leaders of Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri of promoting a prayer breakfast in violation of military regulations.

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation says in a letter Thursday to Brig. Gen. John J. Nichols that it has been contacted by 23 people from the base near Sedalia. The letter says they fear retaliation if they complain about the written promotion of the Feb. 13 prayer breakfast.

"Kansas attorney for nonprofit group questions general's sponsorship of prayer event"

Friday, February 2, 2018

A nonprofit religious freedom organization Friday pressed the commander at Whiteman Air Force Base to withdraw a personal written invitation to a prayer breakfast scheduled for February.

Robert Eye, a Lawrence-based attorney, sent a letter on behalf of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation that requested Brig. Gen. John Nichols leave sponsorship and promotion of the religious observance to chaplains stationed on the base near Sedalia, Mo.

Eye said about two dozen people affiliated with Whiteman, including 17 Christians, expressed concerns to the foundation about the general's invitation to the Feb. 13 event. The individuals shared apprehension about potential retaliation if they raised the issue through the chain of command, Eye said.

"As the commander of Whiteman AFB, the message implicit in the event's promotional message is that attendance is mandatory," Eye said. "The promotional message does not specifically state attendance is required. However, in most employment settings, including a military installation, when the 'boss' promotes an event the implication is that attendance is required."

Eye said the general's conduct served to undermine the separation of church and state embodied in the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.

The simple solution would be to revise the event's promotional message to remove the general's endorsement, Eye said.

In March 2017, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation took exception to a presentation in Topeka by U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Julie Bentz. During the Kansas Prayer Breakfast, the uniformed officer said her "greatest privilege" was to carry members of the military to God's throne.

Topeka attorney Pedro Irigonegaray said at that time Bentz violated the constitution's "religious test" clause.

To Mister Michael Weinstein and his MFRF zombie followers,

Most jews have long disgusting noses. Makes it easier to mark them as jews.

These conniving creatures stick it into everyone else's business.

We think it would be best if your keep you long jewish nose out of the prayer breakfast events

which our soldiers are trying to celebrate: the life of the One True Christ Jesus.

You know, the One which long nosed jews reject as Lord and Savior. These long nosed jews murdered Jesus.

Hey long-nose Michael Weinstein how's that working out for you and your long nose tribe lately?
