Air Force Academy Backtracks on Christmas Toy Drive Because Itís Too Christian
The Blaze ^ | Nov.4, 2011 | Madeleine Morgenstern

The U.S. Air Force Academy has pulled out of a Christian-sponsored children’s toy drive after commanders were accused of religious intolerance.

Mikey Weinstein, an academy graduate who runs the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said the academy’s participation in Operation Christmas Child is inappropriate because of its evangelical Christian roots.

Operation Christmas Child is sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse, headed by Franklin Graham — the son of evangelist Billy Graham. It packs toys and other items into shoe boxes and sends them to needy children around the world, along with a Christian message in each gift.

“This is arrogance beyond measure,” Weinstein told the Colorado Springs Gazette.

This country has turned into a cesspool. I don’t think we need maggots like Mrs. Weinstein’s little Mikey in our Air Force. JMO.

Although Weinstein sounds Jewish, I bet he would have no problem with a Muslim organization.

Too Christian? That's surprising.

From all the signs displayed on stores around here, I would have thought it to be the birthday of Malcolm "X."

I imagine it won’t be long before this maggot demands that all copies of “High Flight” be removed from the academy grounds. I wonder if he’s one of those new, bitter DADT types.

America’s march to a Marxist society is in full swing, under the leadership of Barky Hussein Obumbo.

Some people don’t need killing, they just need to be beat about the head and shoulders. Here is one.

I recall some controversy a few years ago with the Air Force Academy mounted by advocates of "separation of church and state.' The same gang is probably behind this attack on our culture. As a result, there will be some disappointed kids in Colorado this Christmas. What a bunch of intolerant Scrooges they are!

We blew it when we bought into the diversity and tolerance crap. We have forsaken our language, culture, christian roots and lifestyle along with our borders and now we are nothing other than neutered.

How very stupid of them. My father an AF WWII veteran who flew the Burma Hump is probably spinning in his grave.

Well, Mikey, I am glad you recognize your behavior for what it is. I got something for you to really worry about; it has been reported that Foremost Foods International, Inc. has pulled Pangasinan Roundscad Smoked Galunggong and Mackerel Smoked Hasa Hasa off the shelves. I know that it has nothing to do with the thread, but, I just was waiting to use them great sounding words.

The weaselly little prick Weinstein should get a piece of patriotic America’s mind. His actions are a disgrace and completely indecent. Probably directly from the white hut too.

It's intolerant to give gifts to children now?

Someone get a shoebox, fill it with coal, and ship it to Mikey Weinstein. What a putz.
