Full title: Military Atheist Group Wants to Throw Air Force Commander 'Behind Prison Bars' for His Christian Faith
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) sent a formal complaint this week to Defense Secretary James Mattis calling for an investigation of Brig. Gen. E. John Teichert, a Christian and the newly installed commander of the 412 Test Wing at Edwards Air Force Base in California.
The group is furious at Teichert for posting links to articles, a Christmas video, and scriptures on his personal website called Prayer at Lunchtime for the United States. The website also has a list of prayer requests.
The MRFF says the website is in violation Air Force and Defense Department rules about religious proselytizing.

Religious activities of Government employees outside the workplace are protected by the 1st Amendment.
I believe the UCMJ covers this! These freaks need to be given the boot post haste!
How long will the American people put up with this? We can get rid of corrupt judges and godless communist politicians. You can’t give an inch with these lunatics and it’s time to push back.

Atheist Group Wants to Throw Air Force Commander ‘To the Lions’ for His Christian Faith
“The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you...”
So are those ‘inside’ the workplace.
Next time the left takes Congress and the White House, it will be open season on Christians in public life. Enjoy the current peace.
Attacking his personal website?
Play Georgie’s correction of the Fraud’s “muslim faith” to “Christian faith” and tell the leftist freaks we’ll be happy to talk about this with them.
Religious proselytizing is “free exercise thereof.”
The military does not exist outside of the constitution.
There were no lawsuits,no protests,no punishment involved.If a uniformed member of the Armed Forces wishes to ignore religious things they encounter while serving that's fine.
But these atheist pigs don't realize that it's freedom *of* religion,not freedom *from* religion.
not just outside the workplace- also inside the workplace:
Government employees are protected by both Title VII and the United States Constitution against religious discrimination. Public employees do not forfeit their First Amendment rights upon entering the public workplace. Therefore, the religious freedom of government employees has the additional protection of the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. This chapter explains how government employees are protected by the First Amendment above and beyond the protection they have from Title VII.
Therefore, religious speech of government employees will always be protected so long as it does not significantly reduce efficiency in the workplace, and so long as it will not be attributed to the government employer.
Q: As A Government Employee, Can I Advertise Events At My Church On The Bulletin Board At Work?
A: If a government employer allows employees to post non-work related material around the office, they cannot prohibit the posting of religious material.
Q: Doesn’t Religious Speech By Government Employees Violate The “Separation Between Church And State?”
A : The oft cited phrase “separation between church and state” is found nowhere in the Constitution. This phrase has been misused by many in this country to mislead people and trick them into believing that the government can have absolutely nothing to do with religion. The truth is that the Constitution only prohibits the establishment of religion through the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.
Atheists are really brave during peace time. During WWII the saying was “There are no atheists in foxholes”.
They are irrelevant. Ignore them.
It is not his faith that people have objections too - It is pushing it on others.
They may choose to ignore him and we them.
The left is counting on us to be friendly in Mister Rogers Neighborhood with all our community friends and our new friends the aliens and transgenders and atheists and Antifa masked thugs.
We have so much to learn together, such as the line where crossing it will bring civil war from law abiding conservatives who do no harm to them and just want to protect our families and our country’s great way of life.
We disagreed respectfully with Obama for 8 years. Once Trump was legally duly elected as President, the other side went for anarchy, hate, Antifa violence, Women’s March cars on fire and boycotts against the right.
For everyone’s sake let’s hope and pray they simmer down before it gets worse.
Atheists were alright with ‘former’ muslim Barack Obama giving Osama Bin Laden a taxpayer funded Islam funeral rite.
Military religious freedom foundation????
Huge oxymoron and they dont even see it
