The Air Force reversed their position and is now allowing people to omit “so help me God” from the oath they take when joining (as the Constitution, of course, requires). That led Pat Robertson to launch a moronic and ridiculous attack on Mikey Weinstein full of hyperbolic rhetoric and terrible arguments.
There is a left-wing radical named Mikey Weinstein who has gotten a group about ‘people against religion’ or whatever he calls it and he has just terrorized the Armed Forces. You think you’re supposed to be tough, you’re supposed to defend us, and you’ve got one little Jewish radical who is scaring the pants off of you. You want these guys flying airplanes to defend us when you’ve got one little guy terrorizing them? That’s what it amounts to. We swear oaths, ‘So help me God,’ what does it mean? It mean’s with God’s help. You don’t have to say you believe in God, you just have to say you want some help beside myself with the oath I’m taking. It’s just crazy. What is wrong with the Air Force? How can they fly the bombers to defend us if they cave to one little guy?
Yes, yes, yes, Mikey is terrorizing the Air Force. By doing what? By demanding that they follow that pesky Constitution that Robertson claims to love so much but doesn’t really give a shit about. And seriously, how stupid is the argument that requiring those words doesn’t force someone to admit belief in God, it only forces them to ask God for help? And it’s Mikey, not Mickey. English is apparently hard.
