The Worldnetdaily and Allen West have built up a lovely strawman and then slaughtered it to take a shot at Mikey Weinstein, the FFRF and anyone who wants to keep church and state separate. They’ve shared a video of Marines at a worship service on base and declare that it’s going to make us all lose our minds.
A video of U.S. Marines singing, dancing and worshiping God at Camp Pendleton in California is going viral on Facebook, prompting retired Lt. Col. Allen West to revel in the display he says will “drive the secular humanists INSANE.”
In the video a crowd of Marines sings “Days of Elijah,” a Christian worship song, while raising their hands in the air and shouting, “Oorah!” The troops were attending a Christian worship service at the military base in San Diego County, California…
On his website, AllenBWest.com, West wrote, “Oh boy, this here video is surely going to send the head chucklehead of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, Mikey Weinstein, into a apoplectic state of frothing hysteria. And you can imagine that the leadership of the Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation is running about gnashing their teeth and tearing at their clothes.”
Actually, no. This took place in a chapel and was a regular church service. Neither MRFF or FFRF is going to be bothered in the least by it as long as attendance was voluntary and no one had to sit through it who didn’t want to. But you just go ahead and kill that straw man to your heart’s content.
