Mikey Weinstein, the target of that mean-spirited prayer is the founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. He is suing over such actions from Klingenschmitt and Jim Ammerman to stop them

from “encouraging, soliciting, directing, abetting or attempting to induce others to engage in similar conduct.”

Weinstein, who is Jewish, said his family has received death threats, had a swastika daubed on their home, and feces thrown at the house. He said the harassment started several years ago when he began protesting Christian proselytizing at his alma mater, the Air Force Academy.

Klingenschmitt’s obnoxious reply:

“I never prayed for anyone’s violence,” he told the paper. “All I did was quote the Scriptures.” His prayers are available on his website, the Pray In Jesus Name Project, The Evening Prayer’s Channel and for radio broadcast.

Does he want Mikey Weinstein to die? “I pray the Psalm that his days are few,” he told The News.

The dangerous mixture of militarism and religious fundamentalism is getting thicker and thicker in our military.
