Mikey Weinstein Appears on FOX News Channel to Discuss Religion in the Military

After right-wing websites wrongly claimed that Mikey Weinstein (founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation) had been hired by the Pentagon, Mikey appeared on The O’Reilly Factor last night to discuss the religion problem in the military (totally a coincidence, I’m sure):

All things considered, they had way more in common than I thought they would. Since Bill O’Reilly kept trying to elucidate exactly which Bible passages the “Jesus Rifles” cited — as if that actually mattered — here’s what they said:

One of the citations on the ACOG is “JN8:12”, a reference to John 8:12, which reads, “Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” “2COR4:6” is a reference to Second Corinthians 4:6, which reads: “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of the darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Incidentally, I was told by a reporter at The Christian Post that they will be updating/retracting the claim that Mikey was hired by the Pentagon, but that update hasn’t appeared on their website as of this writing.
