    Paper of CAIR Glossing over Hamas ties by Steven Emerson National Review Online February 8, 2008Once again, New York Times reporter Neil MacFarquhar has proven himself to be the chief public relations mouthpiece for radical Islamic front groups in the United States. In an article published Thursday titled, "Speakers at Academy Said to Make False Claims," MacFarquhar writes: The Air Force Academy was criticized by Muslim and religious freedom organizations for playing host on Wednesday to three speakers who critics say are evangelical Christians falsely claiming to be former Muslim terrorists. The three men were invited as part of a...

    Ex-officer Michael Weinstein described the public prayers as an 'outrage' He claims Air Force Academy football players are forced to participate Weinstein insists display of Christianity could be used for ISIS propaganda A former U.S. Air Force officer has branded the ritual of military football players kneeling in prayer a ‘putrid’ example of ‘Christian supremacy’ and demanded it must stop. Michael Weinstein, president and founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), insisted the public prayers so often seen on the football pitch before games are a scandalous outrage. He said Air Force Academy football players had approached the MRFF...

    The U.S. Military Academy is launching an inquiry into a prayer led by coaches following Armys opening-day victory over Temple last week. Video of the post-game invocation was pulled offline on Monday after West Point officials received a complaint from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. Mikey Weinstein, who heads the MRFF, said he received complaints from six members of the football team, two of whom he said identified as Christians, as well as dozens of Army graduates and staff who took exception to the religious expression. He said the video showed head coach Jeff Monken directing an assistant coach to...

    There is a nasty little organization that persecutes Christians in the U.S. Military. It is the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF.) It headed by a nutcase named Mikey Weinstein. I want to know where MRFF gets its funding.

    A group of military chaplains is calling for an about-face after a base in Kansas disinvited retired Army Lt. Gen. William Boykin from a prayer breakfast due to his religious beliefs. The Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty sent a letter to Maj. Gen. Wayne Grisby, commander of the 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley, calling on him to reinstate Gen. Boykins invitation. The chaplain advocacy group said the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, which demanded the general be disinvited due to his religious beliefs, has no right to dictate whom the base hosts. Maj. Gen. Grisby should reinstate the invitation to...

    A Kansas military base abruptly canceled an upcoming prayer breakfast that featured retired Lt. General Jerry Boykin after complaints were lodged that Boykin is anti-Muslim and anti-gay. Military Religious Freedom Foundation founder Mikey Weinstein told Army Times that Boykins invitation had caused great angst among soldiers at Fort Riley leading some to break down in tears. I have clients of ours weeping on the phone about this, he said. Weeping? Oh, please. I sincerely doubt that America can expect to win wars if the people who are tasked to do so are frightened by an old retired general with...

    Wright-Patterson Medical Center has removed a Bible from a POW/MIA display after the Military Religious Freedom Foundation lodged a complaint, according to a base spokesperson. Mikey Weinstein, MRFF founder and president, said in a telephone interview today the organization was contacted by 31 people who objected to the Bible as part of the table display and 10 of those who complained were identified as Christians. They objected very clearly that having the Christian Bible on that table provided supremacy to one faith over all the other faiths and since these are government facilities thats a direct violation of the no...

    NBC 7 San Diego ^ | 12/5/2015 | Derek Togerson and Matt Rascon
    It's a scene football fans have seen hundreds of times, played out on countless fields: players kneeling hand in hand, united in prayer before doing battle on the gridiron. But one such scene in San Diego is sparking national debate. It unfolded Saturday before the Air Force Academy Falcons lost to the San Diego State Aztecs 27-24 in the Mountain West Conference Championship game at Qualcomm Stadium. Multiple players knelt to pray, something they do often with, at times, nearly the entire team. Mikey Winstein, president and founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said Air Force players participating in...

    An Air Force general who recently spoke about how God has guided his career should be court-martialed, a civil liberties group is saying. In a speech at a National Day of Prayer Task Force event on May 7, Maj. Gen. Craig Olson credits God for his accomplishments in the military, and refers to himself as a redeemed believer in Christ. The Air Force Times reports that the Military Religious Freedom Foundation has taken issue with Olsons remarks, is calling for the two-star general to be court-martialed and "aggressively and very visibly brought to justice for his unforgivable crimes and transgressions."...

    The Air Force Reserve Command is threatening to censor a report about a reservist and his family who spend their Christmas holidays each year on humanitarian trips most recently visiting Guatemala and providing medical treatment for indigenous people. The threat is drawing outrage from the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, which has dispatched a letter to the military that not only is the article acceptable, to censor it would be to allow a hecklers veto to control expression, something that the Supreme Court has explicitly rejected. (the article) features Senior Master Sgt. Larry Gallo, who with his wife, Yvonne,...

    So help me, me. In a victory for the tombstone-dancing Military Religious Freedom Foundation (whose name implies the opposite of what they actually believe), the Air Force reversed its 2013 legal opinion requiring recruits to recite the entire Oath of Office when enlisting or receiving a commission in the U.S. Air Force. By entire oath I mean including the part where So help me God is said at the end. The issue was originally raised back in 2013 when the MRFF found that the Air Force was enforcing the Federal laws requiring the entire oath as written. I never...

    Monday, 08 April 2013 09:48 Christians Are Extremists Like al-Qaeda, U.S. Army Taught Troops Written by Alex Newman The Obama administrations Department of Defense was caught training U.S. troops that Catholics, orthodox Jews, and evangelical Christians are to be considered religious extremists, even equating the major religions representing more than half of Americans with truly violent groups such as al-Qaeda, the Ku Klux Klan, and Hamas. After the explosive revelations hit the headlines, outrage promptly ensued. Now, critics are calling for an immediate public apology to the soldiers exposed to the hateful propaganda, as well as to the Christian and...

    President Obama's new "religious tolerance" consultant to the Pentagon, Mikey Weinstein, wants Christian military service members who openly talk about their faith in uniform to be charged with treason, which is a crime punishable by death according to military law. By employing his consulting services, and as Commander-in-Chief, President Obama is effectively endorsing Weinstein's recently voiced and written views such as: "Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized [sic] and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation's armed forces." Weinstein's inflamed word picture helps...

    Religious liberty groups have grave concerns after they learned the Pentagon is vetting its guide on religious tolerance with a group that compared Christian evangelism to rape and advocated that military personnel who proselytize should be court martialed. The Military Religious Freedom Foundation is calling on the Air Force to enforce a regulation that they believe calls for the court martial of any service member caught proselytizing. President Mikey Weinstein and others from his organization met privately with Pentagon officials on April 23. He said U.S. troops who proselytize are guilty of sedition and treason and should be punished ...

    A small, coastal town in central California has settled a lawsuit regarding prayer at City Council meetings, ultimately agreeing to no longer hold any form of prayer, whether sectarian or non-sectarian, ahead of the local government meetings. City officials say they decided to settle the lawsuit to avoid further legal costs paid by taxpayer money. Pismo Beach city officials announced their settlement earlier this week, nearly six months after the Freedom From Religion Foundation [FFRF] and the local chapter of Atheists United San Luis Obispo filed a lawsuit against the city, arguing that it had violated the U.S. Constitution's separation...

    The leader of a church-state separatist group says that theres a revolt underway at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., after officials there removed a Bible verse from a white board outside a cadets bedroom door following complaints that its presence was offensive. Cadets angry over the Air Force Academys removal of the verse have since begun posting scripture from the Bible and the Koran on their whiteboards in solidarity, said Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. The Air Force Academy has a revolt on their hands. What are they going to do? Weinstein...

    NSA whistleblower Russel Tice – a key source in the 2005 New York Times report that blew the lid off the Bush administration’s use of warrantless wiretapping – told Peter B. Collins on Boiling Frogs Post (the website of FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds): Tice: Okay. They went after–and I know this because I had my hands literally on the paperwork for these sort of things–they went after high-ranking military officers; they went after members of Congress, both Senate and the House, especially on the intelligence committees and on the armed services committees and some of the–and judicial.
