An Air force Major at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colarado, US faces possible prosecution as the Military Religious Freedom Foundation is demanding aggressive punishment for having an open Bible on his desk.
According to the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, the major should be “aggressively punished”.
MRFF founder Mikey Weinstein is accusing Maj. Steve Lewis, a supervisor at the Reserve National Security Space Institute, of “harboring and encouraging a truly abhorrent example of First Amendment civil rights violations.”
According to him, “It [the Bible] is very obviously a statement of Christian preference, Christian primacy. Had that been the Book of Satan or the Koran there would be blood in the freaking streets.”
Col. Damon Feltman, the commander of the 310th Space Wing, said they are reviewing the incident involving the Good Book.
“He has removed the Bible voluntarily because he didn’t want this to cause attention or disruption to his unit,” Col. Feltman said. “I’ve performed a walk-through of the office and everything seemed to be in compliance with Air Force regulation.”
Colonel Feltman further stressed that Air Force personnel are free to exercise their constitutional rights to practice their own religion “as long as it is respectful of other individual’s rights to follow their own belief system in ways that support good order and discipline and don’t detract from (the) military mission.”
“As long as he’s not doing something excessive, the existence of a Bible or the Koran or the Torah or some other religious article is not prohibited,” Col. Feltman said. “It’s what you do with it when you have it.”
According to Fox News; Weinstein, earns a paycheck by trying to eradicate Christianity from the Armed Forces, he accused Maj. Lewis of committing a “repulsive violation of USAF regulations” as well as the U.S. Constitution.
Weinstein fired off a nasty, adjective-laden letter to the base commander after receiving complaints from 33 unnamed Air Force personnel.
Fox New’s host, Todd Starnes questions;
“Just a brief aside: If those Air Force personnel are terrified of a Bible – how in the world will they be able to muster the courage to fight the enemy?”
Apparently one of Weinstein’s gentle snowflakes managed to conquer his fear long enough to sneak up on the open Bible and take several photographs – which were then submitted as evidence.
As it appears the Military secularist see the bible as a threat and are acting out their response to the threat. Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jerry Boykin confirm this when he said that “the problem is that militant secularists see the Bible as a threat.”
“Indeed it is a powerful weapon, but it is not a threat to America,” he said. “The military should be focused on the real threats to this nation.”
Todd’s conclusion is very hilarious and at the same time very reasonable. He said;
“For the record, there is no evidence that any of Weinstein’s clients spontaneously combusted or converted after glancing at the Holy Bible.”
Why will anyone be scared of the bible, let alone a military man? Is the truth that hard to handle?!
