Thousands of the brave men and women of our military who fight to defend the freedoms we hold dear find strength and renewal in their Christian faith. Yet, some would seek to remove their religious freedom, their freedom to freely practice their Christian faith from the military.
Dangerously, one of the most ardent opponents of religious freedom – and in particular Christians – in the military is now apparently the Pentagon’s newest advisor on religious freedom and tolerance in our armed forces.
Below are the terms he used in a recent post to describe Christians in the military, who he says “terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation's armed forces.”
And those who support Christians in the military and defend their religious freedom, he says “directly threaten the national security of our beautiful nation.”
No that was not Mahmoud Ahmadinejad or Mohamed Morsi. This is how anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein, head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, describes Christians in the military.
Weinstein, who has a long history of utterly offensive anti-Christian rhetoric, is the last person the Pentagon should be taking advice from in setting policy affecting the rights of our men and women in the military to express their faith.
Join the ACLJ in sending a message to President Obama and Secretary of Defense Hagel, that this type of attack on the faith of our brave men and women in uniform should not be tolerated. Take a stand to defend the religious freedom of those who are sacrificing everything to defend our freedoms. Sign the petition to defend religious liberty in the military.

It sounds eerily familiar. Remember when former IRS top official Lois Lerner tried to downplay the unlawful targeting scheme against conservative and Tea Party groups in May 2012? After the revelation, she did not expect the uproar that ensued and quickly went into finger-pointing mode – blaming...
It is difficult to believe. In testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Thursday, the Treasury Inspector General (IG) for Tax Administration is expected to reveal that IRS employees destroyed critical evidence during an investigation of the agency’s unlawful targeting of...
Never has religious liberty been under greater attack in our nation’s military. Just how bad things are was demonstrated recently in the case of United States v. Sterling . In that case, the United States Navy-Marine Corps Court of Criminal Appeals held that the Marines could order Lance Corporal...
