This is an infraction of the U.S. Military Code of Justice and, until recently, it had not been enforced, hence the need for the MRFF. In the military it is not illegal to share one’s religious beliefs; it is, however, illegal to coerce others to share one’s beliefs. This is what has been going on and this is what the MRFF and Mr. Weinstein have been fighting.
Were those browbeaters fundamentalist Muslims or Church of Scientology adherents, I bet you would join the MRFF in its battle to protect the religious freedoms of our men and women in uniform. Your reliance on the Family Research Council for your information is sufficient to call into question the validity of any of their quotes in your column. The Family Research Council is known to have problems with reporting the truth and has a tendency for using lies for sensationalism. If you’d rely on news sources besides Fox News, you’d find totally different stories about the MRFF and Mr. Weinstein.
By the way, the MRFF has been nominated four times for the Nobel Peace Prize, an honor that neither the Family Research Council nor Fox News can claim.
