The Military Religious Freedom Foundation's decades-long Kafkaesque battle to defend religious freedom may soon be seen by millions of Americans as the result of a deal struck with screenwriter/producer Jesse Maiman.
Beyond the White House, the US Military hosts about 1000 prayer breakfasts & luncheons this time of year. The rationale of bringing people together is the exact opposite of what they actually do, as recent events at Scott Air Force Base show.
Rightwing media jumped all over my earlier story about Jesus Candy sold at Peterson AFB. It's just candy, they argued. But it turns out the candymaker disagrees. The whole reason he's in business is to proselytize--which is fine. But NOT in a government-run BX, where it violates 1st Am & military regs.
It may seem like a little thing to outsiders, but on a base with a religious freedom climate it's hiding from public view, there are no little things for those who have to live with them every day. In fact, it could well be the straw that broke the camel's back.
It’s ‘Oh, no! no!’ not ‘Ho! Ho! Ho!’ as Santa Claus is drafted by fundamentalists to help spread religious divisiveness in the US military. There are hundreds of similar incidents around Christmas time, most settled quickly & quietly. This one illustrates them all.
A parachurch organization largely composed of officers is renewing a push to create a generation of 'Warriors for Christ and not Scholar-Warrior-Diplomats for Peace,' as one disappointed member puts it.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation gets hate-mail like you wouldn't believe. A new book showing how they handle it provides inspiration for all surviving Trump's America.
The Air Force Academy hosted a pseudo-science talk promoting the alleged authenticity of the “Shroud of Turin"--perverting science as well as the US Constitution.
The Sioux Falls VA has a serious problem. A Missing Man display features a Christian Bible, disrespecting the sacrifice of countless non-Christians, plus the Constitution they died for..
A new opinion from the Air Force Judge Advocate General clearly violates the 1st Amendment, as well as Air Force regulations. For the first time ever, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation is seeking relief from the US Civil Rights Commission.
