Pentagon Taps Anti-Christian Extremist for Religious Tolerance Policy
by Ken Klukowski
“Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces.”
Those words were recently written by Mikey Weinstein, founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), in a column he wrote for the Huffington Post. Weinstein will be a consultant to the Pentagon to develop new policies on religious tolerance, including a policy for court-martialing military chaplains who share the Christian Gospel during spiritual counseling of American troops.
Weinstein decries what he calls the “virulent religious oppression” perpetrated by conservative Christians, whom he refers to as “monstrosities” and “pitiable unconstitutional carpetbaggers,” comparing them to “bigots” in the Deep South during the civil rights era.
@#$% like this is epitomizes why, in the late 90s, I started calling the libs’ “tolerance” narrative The Tolerance Game. The Tolerance Game was never about tolerating people; it was always a euphemized narrative - bought as being real by many libs - for bashing theologically conservative Christians. And now the Obama Administration is bringing this hate-filled bigot in as a consultant about Religious Tolerance policy for the US military. Perverse is too mild, but that’s about as far as I’m willing to take my vocabulary.
