One word for Mikey Weinstein, BIGOT!
FOX NEWS – The Air Force Academy is considering dropping the phrase “so help me God’ from its honor oath after the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) filed a complaint.
The Academy’s Honor Review Committee met Wednesday to review the oath in response to the MRFF complaint, said Public Affairs Director Maj. Brus Vidal.
“They considered a range of options and some of those options will be presented to Academy leaders and, ultimately, the Academy Superintendent for a decision,” he said.
The current version of the Academy’s oath reads: “We will not lie, steal or cheat nor tolerate among us anyone who does. Furthermore, I resolve to do my duty and live honorably, so help me God.”
Last week, the Colorado Springs Independent newspaper published a photograph of a poster at the academy which included the oath. The newspaper then forwarded the photo to MRFF President Mikey Weinstein.
Weinstein, a frequent critic of Christianity in the armed forces, wrote a letter to Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson. Weinstein said she responded 68 minutes later.
“The Prep School poster has been taken down,” she wrote in an email reply posted by the Independent. “We are assessing the situation and have many mission elements, to include Prep School leadership, the Honor Review Committee and other entities on base, working to put together a way ahead that is respectful to all perspectives.”
While the poster has been removed, the phrase “so help me God” remains as part of the oath.
Vidal told the Air Force Times they could either make no change, make the God part optional or strike the entire oath.
“We value an inclusive environment that promotes dignity and respect for all,” Vidal told the newspaper.
You want the truth about Weinstein. In the video his arrogance, anger, and hatred for organized religion comes through. But here is the thing, he had one very revealing statement in his tirade. When asked why cadets could not simply not say “so help me God” he fired back that those who want to say it should add it in. That tells me all I need to know about the dill weeds obsessive goal. He is angry that America IS a Christian nation, with a secular government. He is angry that HE, Mikey Weinstein is in the minority. He wants Atheism to be that standard rather than Christianity in America.
Let me give this example, I wrote a column years ago about an Atheist couple in a small Midwest town. They were “offended” by the towns Christmas parade, and the presence of Santa REALLY steamed these two. They wanted the town, which had been having the parade for decades to change. Instead of accepting that the majority of towns people enjoyed the parade, and just not attending, they wanted everyone else to change to suit them. The kicker of the story? The husband was quoted as saying they would never attend the parade anyway. Talk about self-absorbed. This was not about the couple feeling left out at all. It was about them forcing THEIR views on everyone else. Mikey Weinstein is no different, he is a self-obsessed bigot who wishes to tell everyone else how to live.
One more point here. People will say I should note that Jay Sekulow calls Weinstein a friend, and I should be more forgiving and understanding. To them, I say bull shit! I am well past fed up bending over backwards trying to appease miscreants who wish to force me to cater to them because they are offended! People like Mikey Weinstein use our niceness to stab us in the back. They do not do appeasement, and it is damn well time we understood this fact!
And if anything I have written offends Mr, Weinstein, or any other radical Atheist, Statist, Marxist, Feminist, or race baiter, then I say GOOD!
