If Andrew Breitbart had been related to Pinocchio, the tip of his nose would have touched the moon. Even though he is six feet under, his blog continues to spew falsehoods, and prove it lacks any semblance of credibility.
Here’s the latest, and I’m going to quote the exact words used in his rag.
“Mikey Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says Christians–including chaplains–sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military are guilty of “treason,” and of committing an act of “spiritual rape” as serious a crime as “sexual assault.” He also asserted that Christians sharing their faith in the military are “enemies of the Constitution.”
His blog claims this was part of a discussion with the President’s civilian members of the Department of Defense.
Here is the core of the MRFF’s mission statement:
“However, MRFF believes that religious faith is a Constitutionally guaranteed freedom that must never be compromised, except in the most limited of military circumstances, because of its fundamental importance to the preservation of the American nation and the American way of life.
Additionally, MRFF adheres strongly to the principle that religious faith is a deeply personal matter, and that no American has the right to question another American’s beliefs as long as they do not unwontedly intrude on the public space or the privacy or safety of another individual.”
Here is more of the Breitbart style of promoting hatred through falsehoods:
“So President Barack Obama’s civilian appointees who lead the Pentagon are confirming that the military will make it a crime–possibly resulting in imprisonment–for those in uniform to share their faith. This would include chaplains—military officers who are ordained clergymen of their faith (mostly Christian pastors or priests, or Jewish rabbis)–whose duty since the founding of the U.S. military under George Washington is to teach their faith and minister to the spiritual needs of troops who come to them for counsel, instruction, or comfort.”
Now let’s tell some truth. The non-profit MRFF is an organization whose entire goal is protecting the military from religious persecution. A number of pseudo-Christians are very dangerous, and have attempted to control the entire United States of America. Their goal is to ignore the primary reason our Country was founded, religious freedom. They would violate or re-write the Constitution of the United States, and force everyone to belong to a “national religion”.
Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, and John Adams left England because of the domination of the Anglican Church.
The first paragraph of the MRFF mission statement:
“The Military Religious Freedom Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that all members of the United States Armed Forces fully receive the Constitutional guarantees of religious freedom to which they and all Americans are entitled by virtue of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.”
What the organization opposes is coercion by any group or individual to manipulate or force any individual to join their group.
The right wing continually talks about Constitutional violations, when all the while they are breaking, or attempting to break, the Law of the Land.
The Breitbart Blog is more fallacious and more harmful than FOX News. And that’s pretty darn hard to do.
