Marine Corps under fire after canceling training session amid concerns about speakerís Christian background

The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) is facing backlash from both sides of the religious liberty debate after it planned a training session that was later canceled over the speaker’s background in Christianity -- fueling Congressional scrutiny of both the military and the nonprofit which appeared to prompt the cancellation.

Air Force veteran Jay Lorenzen was slated to speak at an annual training for JAG reservists on Friday, but that came to a screeching halt after the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) relayed its reservist clients’ concerns about Lorenzen’s beliefs influencing his talks. An MRFF press release boasted on Saturday that its president, Michael Weinstein, was able to obtain a cancellation within just 64 minutes.

Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., told Fox News on Monday that he was “appalled” by the USMC’s “willingness to quickly cave to Mikey Weinstein’s atheist demands to eradicate Christianity from our military.”

“While the Department of Defense has a long history of willfully ignoring the religious freedom of its service members, banning a former Air Force Academy professor from leading a Marine Corps training because of his Christian beliefs is absolutely unconscionable. I look forward to discussing this with Department of Defense officials at our meeting on Thursday,” said Collins, a military chaplain.

The formerly great US military and the formerly great United States Marine Corps are rotten to the core in their values. They are bigoted against Christians, they try to deny Christians basic rights (Navy: no off base church), they bend over to take it up the keester from that Satanist Mickie Weinstein at a (64 minutes actually) moments notice. Recall several years ago the Army canceled a lecture from someone who was going to say most wars in the world today involve Muslims. They had to be absolutely forced to reinstate the lecture at the Army War College. Our military leadership today is disgusting. They haven't got a clue about war fighting, only extreme political correctness. Is it any wonder we haven't won a war in 75 years?

Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF)

Funny how they bow before a Satanic Worshipping Hate Group to the detriment of someone that believes in right and wrong.

make no mistake, this group is also a Religious Group.

A lot of the officers in the Marine Corps were purged under the Obama administration for refusing to accept the LGBTQI mandate. Our Marine Corps base went through 3 commanding officers in a year, each discharged for undisclosed reasons for “failing to inspire confidence.”

USMC - where an officer with Christian beliefs isn't allowed to train the troops. Sickening.

Mikey Weinstein is always photographed brandishing his fists.

There’s not a Marine out there, Golden Gloves perhaps, who could bring him down? Not one?

Remember it was Obama that began the purging of the Generals.

I am VERY DISAPPOINTED this is still happening under President Trump.

We are on the path to violent revolution within a year at most, and the government is no longer protect us.

The Republicans are for the most part very quiet. President Trump says and Tweets the right things, but is not doing enough action.

He needs to get off the Twitter and we need to see massive offensive action. Being on the defense almost his entire presidency is why we are at this point. President Trump must attack now.

Obongo spent 8 years focused on destroying the US military. The damage was deep and wide.

Obama’s shadow government STILL controls the military, not the POTUS’ administration.

I thought Weinstein’s organization was going to be shown the door when Trump got into office.

Any Marine can easily take him down. We were trained not to fight fair, we fight to win. He can bring his fists but there will be a round with his name on it. Again, there is no such thing as a fair fight.
