In the unedifying fantasy that passes for current events these days, a couple of Muslims blow up the Boston Marathon while the U.S. military has its eye on Southern Baptists.
To make sure everyone in the armed services gets the message of religious tolerance, our “president” has appointed a “religious tolerance consultant” to the Pentagon, a man named Mikey Weinstein. Yes, he calls himself Mikey. It is Mikey’s job to deliver the message of tolerance. Here is a quote from Mikey. Please note the tolerance.
“Today, we face incredibly well-funded gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates in our nation’s armed forces.” Mikey recommends that Christian men and women in the military who openly speak of Christianity, while in uniform, be charged with treason. Nidal Hassan, an Army officer who shot a bunch of unarmed fellow soldiers while shouting “Allahu akbar!”, is now described by our nation’s leaders not as a traitor, but as a mere example of workplace violence.
We pay Mikey’s salary.
Before we decide whether Mikey needs a psychiatrist or an exorcist, we might ask whether we need him on our payroll at all. I mean, a frothing-at-the-mouth psycho high up on the chain of command…. Maybe your state’s U.S. Senator can explain to you what Mikey’s doing there.
Call and ask.
