Mikey Weinstein, an atheist and longtime pro-homosexual activist who has the ears of some of the Pentagon’s top commanders, has wasted no time in capitalizing on Friday’s homosexual “marriage” ruling.
Making a quick lie out of the court majority’s promise that Christians would be allowed under Friday’s ruling to continue exercising their beliefs as protected by the First Amendment, Weinstein has published an editorial in the far-left Daily Kos calling for any military chaplain who refuses to endorse homosexual “marriage” to be summarily drummed out.
Weinstein, president of the misleadingly named Military Religious Freedom Foundation, wrote that “as long as these faux ‘victimized’ chaplains insist on accepting a government paycheck from us, the American taxpayers, while nurturing and maintaining the state of antagonism between their religion and the sexual/gender identities of servicemembers, then they don’t belong in the military.”
Weinstein is clearly offended that anyone calling themselves Christian would dare adhere to the Bible, believe the Bible, teach the Bible, etc. in light of Friday’s ruling.
Of course, before the ruling Weinstein was just as offended that anyone would accept the Bible, on the grounds that he is smarter than other people and therefore his decision to embrace atheism is the only acceptable choice. He’s been pushing that notion for years, using any opening or excuse he could find to persecute Christians in the military and further his agenda of establishing a state religion of atheism.
But now, Weinstein wants to use the whole homosexual lifestyle and Friday’s ruling as a litmus test for who can and can’t serve the country. It’s exactly what Christians have feared would happen, and Weinstein is only too happy to work to make those fears come true.
Liberals may be wondering what’s wrong with that, but Weinstein’s vision of an atheistic, effeminate military of mindless drones with no personal opinions should concern every American because he wants to eliminate God-fearing people who have been the backbone of the military since the country’s founding.
“At this stage,” he wrote, “the only honorable thing that these losers can do is to fold up their uniforms, turn in their papers, and get the hell out of the American military chaplaincy.”
If Weinstein gets his way — and the wind is certainly blowing in his direction — the purge won’t stop with the chaplains, as Weinstein writes: “The Department of Defense must expeditiously cleanse itself of the intolerant filth that insists on lingering in the ranks of our armed forces.”
Weinstein’s group, the MRFF, likes to pretend that it is about religious freedom and protecting troops’ rights.
Occasionally, though, Weinstein slips and admits the truth, as when he wrote in the same article, “the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, the only organization devoted solely to fighting the scourge of fundamentalist Christian extremism. …”
He makes a special point of mocking black pastors who have promised to stand up for biblical values: “Even a solid contingent of right-wing African-American Christian clergy are having a field day displaying their abject shamelessness, pledging ‘to do the same thing we did for the civil rights movement,’ – basically, to begin a campaign of civil disobedience signaling their anger at ‘the politicians and courts … [taking] God out of this country.’ Imagine the grinding teeth and anguished moans emanating from the benighted quarters of Christian fundamentalism within the U.S. military!”
Friday’s Supreme Court ruling is providing cover for the real bigots behind the homosexual rights movement to finally come out from hiding. Weinstein is only the first of many, guaranteed.
