FUNDAMENTALIST MILITARY CONTRACTORS THREATEN RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IN MIKEY'S OP-ED

Onward
(Private Contract American) Christian Soldiers

Thursday, July 13, 2017

In a move which leaves even the most jaded and stoic among us aghast, Trump's "Chief Strategist" Steve Bannon is now backing a military plan involving Eric Prince and Stephen Feinberg with the goal of privatizing U.S. military operations in Afghanistan. The attempt to impose Christian fundamentalism on military operations by wresting control from the Pentagon and putting it in the hands of infamous Blackwater operatives is nothing less than another despicable play by the swarming fundamentalist Christian Dominionists who are rapidly filling seats of power across the full spectrum of the United States government in Washington.

[...]

A government backed military operated by a clearly fundamentalist "Crusader" Christian private contractor who is as frighteningly radical as Blackwater's "Echo Papa" Eric Prince is a horrific step backwards into McCarthy style sentiment.  
Folks, why all the concern, you may ask? Because we are talking about nothing less than unrestricted, weaponized, fundamentalist Christian, religious extremism being inextricably intertwined into the very fabric of our United States armed forces.

[...]

As Founder and President of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), I will continue to identify, target and fight back with all we've got against the unconstitutional evil trying to viciously radicalize our military. [...]

A Personal Note from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation Founder and President, Michael L. "Mikey" Weinstein:

My dear beloved friend, retired US Marine Corps Major Bill Barker, passed away late last night here in Albuquerque New Mexico... Bill was an amazing military leader and extraordinarily excellent Junior ROTC instructor for decades and touched the lives of so many fine young people in America, specifically including my son Curtis... He was also a Member of the Board, a MRFF Thomas Jefferson Award Honoree, and a HUGE supporter of our Military Religious Freedom Foundation... Semper Fi and love forever to you my brother.... you will be missed and never forgotten!!! -Michael L. "Mikey" Weinstein-

"Article I Saw"

Subject: Article I saw
Date: July 7, 2017 at 4:53:01 AM MDT
To: Mikey Weinstein

To whom it may concern:
 
I'm a 100% disabled vet (USAF – 'Nam Era) and I have limited resources, so it's doubtful that I'll be able to offer you financial support in any way, but I support what you do.  I've thought ever since I enlisted, decades ago, that the U.S. military rammed religion down your throat, especially the 'majority' religion of the nation.  Never thought that it was right.  Living in Colorado Springs, I was aware of Mr. Weinstein and his complaints – and sympathetic to his goals.
 

Until I ran across the article (link below), I had no idea that he was subject to this kind of idiocy.  I had thought that America was better than this; I hate rudeness and bias of any kind.  To me, all of that is simply incomprehensible.  My very best wishes to Mr. Weinstein and the organization.
