"Mikey" Weinstein Wants YOU...To Help Fight The Air Force...


In today's Washington Post Style section, there was a huge front page article about Michael Weinstein or "Mikey" as many people call him.

Mikey is a 50-something Jewish guy who quotes Meatloaf and Marylin Manson, is a lawyer and is blunt and un-apologetic. He's the kind of guy you would want on your side in a bar fight.

And as far as fights go, the one he's fighting is a whopper: Mikey is going against the entire Air Force, suing them for "alleged religious favoritism and proselytizing in the service." Basically, he feels that the Neo-Conservative Right Wingers are influencing the military too much and are using it as a place to find converts. Which it's not and should never be.

This fight started when Mikey's son told him about the anti-Semitic comments made at the Air Force Academy in Colorado, where Mikey's son was enrolled. As a start, Mikey created the Military Religious Freedom Foundation which 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." He also wrote a book with the working title of With God On Our Side

I won't go into any more detail about the article because you should read it yourselves. But I will post this quote from it. It's a response from Mikey Weinstein to the Christian Right that has highjacked the military:

"Let me make it clear. I would shed my last drop of blood to defend their right to hold that biblical worldview. They are absolutely entitled to believe that Anne Frank is burning in hell along with Dr. Seuss, Gandhi and Einstein," he says. "But I will not accept my government telling me who are the children of the greater God and who are the children of the lesser God. That's the difference. I will not defend -- I will fight them tooth and nail, and lay down a withering field of fire and leave sucking chest wounds -- if they engage the machinery of the state, which is what they're doing."


"Sucking chest wounds"...Not bad huh?
