I often publish emails that are sent to Mikey Weinstein by various cranks, kooks and haters, always of the Christian variety and nearly always incredibly anti-Semitic too. But he got one on Friday and forwarded it to me that takes a whole new approach. They’re offering him a million dollars (!) to either shut down the Military Religious Freedom Foundation or undergo a 3-month Christian training program to cure him of his evil ways. I’m not even joking.

To: Mr. Michael L. “Mikey” Weinstein, Esq., Executive Director of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF):
Our worldwide Christian mission organization is prepared to personally offer you $1,000,000.00 in cash at this present time.

We will contact you via telephone within the next two to-three weeks to discuss this matter and receive your answer.
thank you, Mr. Weinstein.
In The Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
It isn’t clear who this “worldwide Christian missionary organization” actually is. The domain for the email address, 22jc44.org, does not exist. I really do hope they call Mikey and I hope he records the conversation because that would be highly entertaining. If they think they can buy him off for 30 pieces of silver, they clearly do not know the man.
