Do you know the easiest way to tell if someone is a radical Christian or a compassionate Christian? Usually on whether or not they can spell, utilize proper grammar, and punctuate. Sometimes, though, even the intelligent ones are still hateful bigots. Here is the latest email from a Christian in the Air Force. Dear MRFF, My name is (name redacted). I am a (rank redacted) in the United States Air Force and am currently stationed at Shaw AFB, SC. As one would expect, I have heard … [Read more...]
I guess people got a little heated over the removal of some plastic figurines from Shaw AF Base. Fox News Of course...Fox News ran with this story and Todd Starnes in all his brilliance made some "phone calls" to discover that removing the nativity display aboard Shaw AF Base was actually unconstitutional. Is this where I get to - "lol, smiley face"? Starnes is always good for a laugh. Shortly after his puff piece was published online I received an email from someone who apparently reposted … [Read more...]
At 11:48 EST this morning I was alerted by MRFF clients of a nativity scene that had been placed aboard Shaw Air Force Base, next to Memorial Lake. This in and of itself is not a problem. However, it was not within the vicinity of any chapel and was not part of a scene designed to accommodate all religious preferences, or no preferences, aboard the base. It was very sectarian in nature and a direct violation of the US Constitution as well as a blatant violation of Air Force Instruction … [Read more...]
UPDATE (original report below) Todd Starnes has produced a followup report where, despite an inaccurate and intentionally misleading headline, he exhibits a temporary bit of sanity by reporting exactly what I stated in my original report. Starnes admits that the Army did not categorize the AFA as a hate group and that the slideshow presentation was locally produced without input from official policy or higher leadership. Read for yourself here: Pentagon admits Christian ministry is not … [Read more...]
Here's a little clip that's interesting. It's the military panel put on by the hate-group FRC In it you'll notice the now exposed liar Senior Master Sgt Monk. The DOD recently brought out a report stating that he was not relieved of command or fired. He fabricated all the events that transpired as he was scheduled to PCS to another unit many many months prior to the supposed "event" having taken place. If you have 30 minutes to waste go ahead and watch this mindless drivel. Even if you … [Read more...]
Christian Dominionists in the US Congress today….or a Book Review of “Christian Nation” by Fredric C. Rich?
This is my review of the book 'Christian Nation' The premise behind the book is that in the year 2008 John McCain gets elected to high office as the President of the United States. This of course would have made, the Tea Party favorite and Dominionist Christian, Sarah Palin the Vice President. At the very beginning of the book McCain takes a flight over to Russia to do some international diplomacy. While he is there he dies of a heart attack and in steps Sarah Palin as the … [Read more...]
Air Force Academy In my last post I alerted everyone to a problematic email sent out by an Air Force Master Sergeant. The Air Force has capitulated away from unconstitutional official policy and have agreed to, once again, allow graduating cadets to omit the "oath to god" from their Creed. I, (state your name), having been appointed a (rank) in the United States (branch of service), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States … [Read more...]
