So Mikey is a graduate of the AF Academy. Funny that there isn't any rank associated with his name. Did he receive a commission?

He's a pompus, self-centered twit that seems to be rabidly anti-Christian.

Makes me ashamed to be a former zoomie.

THE Only advise I can offer, not being military...is “What Ye say about Christ Jesus?” Your Eternal salvation depends upon the correct answer. Christ is eternal and died for the sins of the world, free grace salvation is afforded to anyone who believes that Christ rose from the dead...that is the only eternal issue for the days in which we live...

Religious Freedom Foundation=one Jewish ex-serviceman who is a fanatic anti-Christian bigot. Financed by fellow bigots who never wore a uniform. It is disgraceful that a tiny Christian hating minority can wield such power.

“Such statements are not only antithetical to the clear mission of the United States Air Force Academy, they are totally anathema to the purportedly globally inclusive purpose of this National Prayer Luncheon,” Weinstein wrote in a letter to Gould and Defense Department officials.

I'd love to hear his rationale how that could possibly be true.

Weinstein has battled the academy in recent months over the school’s failure to include him in a conference on the school’s religious tolerance practices

Intolerant Weinstein wants to be included in a conference on tolerance? No surprise.

Let’s see if the USAFA Supt has cojones. The general is far too classy to say what’s probably in his mind as a fighter pilot - “bite me”.

USAFA has a tradition of loser grads who normally get their law degrees (having proved far, far deficient in physics, math, and the real courses there). Methinks this complainer must be one of those...he’s gotta prove his “superiority” in some way.

Oh, for heaven’s sake. My husband and brother are Air Force vets. We don’t need any crazies, thanks.

The only Air Force Academy graduate I know is a Latin Mass Catholic. He found himself in a minority there, *of course*, but figured it was part of life. Any Catholic from Oklahoma knows that some evangelicals want to convert you, but if you say, “Thanks, honey, I already have a church home,” they bless your heart and move on.

Couldn’t find him in the USAFA grad directory. Appears to be a dropout or perhaps an honor violator who was expelled. He therefore qualifies for work with any chosen democrat organization (they hire honor violators, and other folks who didn’t hack it at Alcoa Tech.

So his present position fits, eh?

Heh!

Why would they want such a spineless racist as a speaker?

Weinstein has battled the academy in recent months over the school’s failure to include him in a conference on the school’s religious tolerance practices and the academy’s initial failure to release results of a survey that showed concerns about prosyletizing there.

It doesn’t take a brain surgeon or a rocket scientist to figure out why. I’m sure the academy would love for this nut job to just disappear.

No violence intended, civility at all costs.

This from Weinstein’s organization mission statement:

“Additionally, MRFF adheres strongly to the principle that religious faith is a deeply personal matter, and that no American has the right to question another American’s beliefs as long as they do not unwontedly intrude on the public space or the privacy or safety of another individual.”

Better change your mission statement Weinstein.

Weinstein is nuts...

The ‘Secular Crusader’: Former Air Force JAG Looks to Drive All Christian Symbolism from Military

Here is the unit symbol for the Army hospital at Ft. Carson, CO, which so offended Weinstein on behalf of the world’s Muslims:

Note it’s inscribed with “For God and Humanity” — not “For God and Americans” or “For God and Christians.” And it’s a hospital, not a combat unit.

It appears he graduated in '77 and resigned as a Captain in '87.

If I remember correctly, this was the man and the organization that got Franklin Graham “disinvited” to the National Day of Prayer at the Pentagon by sending a complaint letter to the Sec of Defense on behalf of muslims. He’s rabidly anti-Christian and I don’t say that about many people.

Thanks rlmorel!

Dad ‘ll read this tonight and appreciate everyone’s concern and efforts.

He’s doing his part with the upper ‘management’ at USAFA. But it’s going to take more than a letter and his voice.

Guess Janet Napolitano was ‘right’, labeling war veterans ‘lone wolf’s’ and whatnot...imagine Dad senses he’s flying solo at times.

Cheers.

This thread will help.
