The progressive socialist and secular humanist left have truly lost their minds when it comes to the existence of Islamic terrorism. It seems they blame everyone else for creating and inspiring the savage barbarism of ISIS and its recruiting ability. The liberal progressive left has blamed GITMO. President Obama has blamed GOP presidential candidates. Attorney General Loretta Lynch has stated her greatest fear is anti-Muslim speech in the aftermath of the Islamic terror attack in San Bernardino — for which ISIS has taken credit for inspiring.
But this latest display is beyond belief and utterly despicable. And you can thank Mikey Weinstein for this latest abomination.
As reported by the Daily Mail, “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 claiming they were forced into joining the prayers, for fear of punishment. He even claimed that such a public showcase of Christianity could be used in anti-American propaganda produced by ISIS and al-Qaeda. ‘It’s a disgrace,’ said Mr Weinstein, who graduated from the Academy in 1977. ‘It’s a putrid example of fundamentalist Christian supremacy, triumphalism and exceptionalism and it has to stop. ‘Those individuals that are dressed in the Air Force uniform; that’s their uniform of the day. They’re members of the military and they are under different rules that the civilian counterparts they’re playing on the field.” We’ve shared with y’all here other occasions evidencing the demented mind of Mickey Weinstein, and it continues. I find it hard to believe anyone is being forced to join in on pre-game prayers. Just the same as when Mr. Weinstein claimed a Christmas nativity scene in the GITMO chow hall had to be taken down because ‘someone’ complained they were offended.
But there is a greater issue here at play. Prayer is now a “putrid example of fundamentalist Christian supremacy?” So when we have opening prayer in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, is that also a putrid example and a public showcase of Christianity to be used as anti-American propaganda?
It appears to me this radical secular humanist is going down the path of blaming the existence of Christianity as a fuel for ISIS. Therefore, it can be deduced that Mikey Weinstein and his acolytes support the ISIS genocide of Christians in the Middle East — after all, their public showcase of Christianity is clearly offensive to the Islamic jihadists.
I think Mr. Weinstein needs to understand something. Long before the scourge known as Mohammad appeared on the scene, Christianity existed. But somehow Christianity’s existence is as Weinstein stated, “a disgrace.” We’ve already seen a full bore assault by the progressive socialist left on prayer as shown in headlines at the Huffington Post and New York Daily Review after San Bernardino.
This is how it began in Rome under Nero. The travails of the state were blamed on the subversive sect known as Christians and therefore the persecution began. As a student of history, I see little difference with what is being publicly stated. And for the U.S. Air Force claiming they will “investigate” only serves to embolden this crazed individual. Here we are less than a week away from the biggest Islamic terror attack since 9-11 and we have idiots blaming pre-game college football players praying as a means of propaganda for ISIS?
What America is this? Where is Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter or the Secretary of the Air Force to quash this nonsense and send Weinstein packing? His organization possesses an oxymoronic moniker — the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. Remember this organization went after U.S. Air Force Major General Craig Olson demanding his courts-martial just because he shared his testimony giving thanks to God for his successful career as a pilot and leader. This insanity is allowed to proliferate while SecDef Carter makes a unilateral declaration that all combat billets (positions) will be open to females. As a matter of fact, females at the U.S. Naval Academy will soon be able to undergo screening for Navy BUDS/UDT training.
We are so terribly upside down in our Armed Forces. And for Weinstein to make the claim that these players are in the “uniform of the day” — does that mean he’ll persecute any members of our armed forces gathering to pray? Next Weinstein will demand we ban Christian prayer throughout the military as it will inspire Islamic terrorists to invoke the Crusades — after all, President Obama used the same argument at the National Prayer breakfast in response to ISIS burning alive the Jordanian fighter pilot.
Let me say something very simple. This is what Americans see happening and they do not see anyone speaking up. I ask you, how many of our presidential candidates will take a stance and mention this issue — after all, they do want to be the commander-in-chief, right?
So many of these elected officials and others are concerned about anti-Muslim speech and sentiments, but couldn’t care less about castigating Christianity as a “putrid.” It is Christians who are being crucified, beheaded, raped, driven from their ancestral homelands, and sold into sex slavery. Is that not putrid to Weinstein?
Everyone is going crazy over Donald Trump’s most recent comments — imagine if Trump had said Muslim call to worship and prayers are a disgrace and a putrid example of Islamic supremacy, triumphalism, and fundamentalism? What if anyone were to say that public Muslim prayer, such as was conducted on the Capitol Hill West Lawn is propaganda?
Yep, they would be demonized…yet, Mikey Weinstein will make these assertions and no one will pay attention. Mikey Weinstein is a dangerously mentally disturbed individual who at the end of the day, I believe is capable of doing exactly what occurred to Christians under Nero. Why do I say that? Because I haven’t heard him say one thing about what ISIS is doing to Christians, yet he’s blaming Christianity and Christian prayer as being supremist, fundamentalist, and castigating it as subversive.
We know of his assault on Christian chaplains…perhaps Weinstein is a modern day Saul, and maybe he’ll have a road to Damascus moment. If not, then he needs to be stopped, because his actions are subversive and appear reflective of the liberal progressive secular humanist agenda — which enables the rise of the real putrid example that of Islamo-fascists.
Folks I need y’all to call the offices of SecDef Ash Carter and Secretary of the Air Force Deborah Lee James and request they cut off any and all communications with Weinstein and his organization. This cannot stand.
