Bonnie Weinstein, wife of Mikey Weinstein (president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation) has compiled a new book of hate mail she regularly gets from various members of the armed forces. From another blog, here’s a sample of a letter:
If you asshole kikes had acttually BEEN in the military, you would know there are almost NONE of your kind in the service.
Jew parasites are too greedy to serve the country, which isn’t theirs in the first place.
Kikes are nation wreckers and parasites, nothing more.
And muslims? Fuck those stone age motherfuckers too. Who gives a shit about those scumbags?
Fuck all you SJW assholes, I wonder how many kikes are among the heads of your shit organization.
I hope you all get cancer.
He founded the organization after being beaten unconscious by fellow soldiers when he served because of his religion, and his son is now serving. From the linked article (which is older and reviews a previous book):
Religion is powerful in part because it takes command of moral emotions, including moral disgust and outrage. These emotions can get activated in the service of justice, or compassion, or fairness, or ahimsa, or love. But they also can get attached to matters that serve no moral purpose save that of protecting the religion itself—questions of ritual purity, of blasphemy or right belief, of god-ordained gender hierarchy and rules about sex—or an army captain’s obligation to preach the gospel to his underlings.
Such passion can be met only by confronting the beliefs that drive the behavior. Organizations that work to constrain specific harmful actions, like MRFF, play a critical role in maintaining secular pluralism and rule of law. But make no mistake—as devout believers seek to follow perceived moral mandates they will push to the limits, and sometimes beyond, while simultaneously working to change whatever rules or laws constrain them. That is the nature of moral certitude.
The LAST thing we need is a “Christian” army. We don’t want the military to think they’re on a mission from Gawd to eradicate whatever godless country we’re attacking. I mean, really, the command to go out and kill every man, woman, child and animal in any given city is RIGHT THERE in the Buybull.
Such an attitude is filth, the product of misinformed filth and barbaric tribalism.
Make no mistake if all religion was wiped fro the face of the earth tomorrow, such people would find another reason to hate another group of people simply because they want to hate, because hating is all that makes them able to get up in the morning, all that sustains their sad wretched existence.
If they did not disgust me so much I would pity them.
I stick to my belief that religion is a plague on humanity. It is destructive to the core. It causes division, hate, war. It exploits human weaknesses often at the expense of the wallet with people who can't afford it being drawn into the false belief that a miracle will happen if you part with enough cash. Historically, this goes back to the very foundation of any religion. Christianity in the United States is blowing our country to pieces in so many critical ways by them trying to force their beliefs down our throats. They don't even understand the very foundation of their religion. They are weaponizing it instead.
All religions have people like this. This is one of the reasons why religions shoulld disappear from this earth, the crimes committed in the name of "defending" their religions agains others who believe differently are documented throughout history. It's barbaric and despicable.
