It’s at Salon so you’ll have to sit through a 30-second ad before you can read it, but it’s worth it. Weinstein’s the founder and president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, which is leading the charge against the Christian Embassy for using officers in uniform for its promo video. I wrote about it a few days ago. I can’t do justice to the righteous indignation of the interview — and he does go too far at points — but this’ll give you a taste.
I get calls 24/7 from the soldiers, Marines and airmen. Unlike cops, they don’t have a union, they have my foundation, that’s it. They’re being tormented. And 96 percent of those who come flooding in, on fire with torment, are Christians, three-fourths of whom would be traditional Protestants: Lutherans, Methodists, Episcopalians, Presbyterians. The other one-fourth are Roman Catholics. These are Christians being preyed upon by evangelical Christians — pray and prey — and being told that you’re not Christian enough, therefore you’re going to burn in a hell of fire…
[W]e’re not going to stop, we’re not going to ever stop, we’re going to lay down a withering field of fire and leave sucking chest wounds on these people that are trying to destroy our Constitution. This is not a Christian-Jewish issue, and it’s also not a political spectrum, left or right issue, it’s a Constitutional right and wrong issue. These officers, and what’s happening in that video, simply by appearing in a video that is blatantly and vociferously sectarian, by simply doing three things in that video, they should be court-martialed. That would be circulating blood, reflecting light and breathing. That’s all they had to do and that alone would have been enough.
Read it all.
