Mikey Weinstein has done it again. Not only does he spend his time eating Christian babies, he hates Jesus and Santa Claus as well and is destroying Christmas by demanding that the military comply with their own regulations and put a nativity scene in the base chapel.
The commander of this remote outpost said Wednesday night he would move two Nativity scenes from U.S. troops’ cafeterias to the base chapel, ending a daylong controversy kicked up by a few troops who protested to the Pentagon in secret.
“No one’s ever complained to me about it. We’ve been doing it for 10 years,” said Capt. J.R. Nettleton, commander of this Navy base, which has a school, a golf course and about 6,000 residents, a third of them civilian contract workers from Jamaica and the Philippines.
Still, he said, he took a look at the two créches in the dining rooms and concluded the more suitable place to put them was, as recommended, in the base chapel on a hilltop above the McDonald’s.
“The spirit of the Navy’s policy on this is, if it’s religious, it goes to the chapel,” Nettleton told the Miami Herald after a day of controversy. “It’s more appropriate there.”
A total of 18 U.S. service members stationed here, five of them officers, appealed to the Military Religious Freedom Foundation after an agonizing, secret meeting earlier this week about what to do about the two créches and other Christmas decorations that festoon the main prison and base dining rooms, the rights group’s president, Mikey Weinstein, said Wednesday.
Weinstein is responsible for having nativity scenes removed from two locations in GITMO. Our soldiers aren’t allowed to enjoy Christmas because Weinstein said 18 cowardly practicing Christians and Protestants were very upset about their presence. Of course these supposed complainants are anonymous. I hear the military at GITMO are on a mission to find out who they are – if they even exist. I have my doubts.
The commanders on the base who removed the scenes are cowards too. They caved to the jerk Weinstein.
Melodramatic much? Aren’t allowed to enjoy Christmas? Seriously?
