"Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground." (Genesis 1:26-28)

With the great political awakening of the Christian right, Mikey Weinstein tells us how they have taken their message into the military and openly proselytize and pressure peers and subordinates to accept the "Word of God." The author took on the burden of challenging this practice after his two sons, also cadets at his alma mater, complained about the constant harassment taken against them for being Jews.

Author Weinstein discovered how the Air Force Academy scheduled formations that conflicted with Jewish services to put pressure on Jewish cadets to ignore their religious observations in favor of squadron cohesion. However even Catholics and mainstream Protestants came in for ridicule and harassment for not having accepted Jesus as their Personal Savior, apparently the only avenue to end the unrelenting pressure. Cadets were actively encouraged to view Mel Gibson's "The Passion of Christ," a movie with anti-Semitic overtones. The Academy seemed to be the perfect swamp for breeding Christian extremism. The surrounding area has dozens of churches and Christian organizations that spread the word.

But Weinstein found that it went beyond the Academy at Colorado Springs and he determined to do something about it by starting the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. Other than a lack of funds, he seemed to be the perfect person to do so. A graduate of the Air Force Academy, he went on to earn a law degree and worked in the White House learning how stonewalling and foot dragging is an art form. He also developed contacts.

I bought this book for my Kindle as soon as it came out. I couldn't wait to read it until a hard copy arrived. I was blown away by Mikey's last book and knew that this one would catch me up regarding all that has been going on with the Military Religious Freedom Foundation and the Weinstein family. From the outset it was clear that this was a real page-turner and it managed to keep me up late two nights in a row. Within the book I read story after story about individuals and groups of individuals that Mikey and the foundation have assisted as they have encountered the juggernaut of Fundamentalist and Dominionist Christian forces within the U.S. Armed Forces and Department of Veterans Affairs. It's clear these Fundamentalist and Dominionist Christian forces will stop at nothing to inflict their beliefs on their subordinates, they will use their positions of power to coerce attendance at religious events, discipline those who refuse to attend Fundamentalist Christian events, will harass, name call (including calling Jews "Christ Killers" and worse), and even resort to violence to coerce submission to Fundamentalist Christianity. And of course not even their fellow Christians are immune from this harassment. As it turns out, approximately 96% of the MRFF's clients are in fact Christians who face discrimination and harassment at the hands of Fundamentalist Christians who do not consider them "Christian enough." The stories in this book will blow you away. It's a frightening reality that Fundamentalist Christianity has essentially already succeeded in turning the United States Military into a literal Christian Crusading force.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
Mr. Weinstein, an Honor graduate of the USAF Academy, has, with his family, given years of distinguished service to the Republic, including 10 years as a USAF JAG lawyer, where he has served in the Reagan White House as Special Counsel.

Until 2005, he was a very successful top-level corporate businessman and lawyer. Then he found there were problems at the USAF Academy. Originally investigating on behalf of his 2 sons, who were a cadets and were being harassed for their faith.

Initially thinking this was a small local issue, he slowly began to find that there was a large group with great power involved. The more he learned, the more shocked he was, and he eventually was impelled to leave his successful career to fight what he now considers a huge national security threat to the Republic.

Mr. Weinstein has taken on a very unequal battle against a large and well-financed gang of would-be theocrats who follow a very narrow brand of religion, consisting mainly of pre-millennial sects which are part of a movement known variously as Dominionism or Reconstructionism.

These people are planning to take over the military, then overturn the Constitution and Republic ("by ballot or by bullet"), and turn first the nation and then the world into a "Christian" theocracy complete with their warped version of Old Testament "bible-based" laws that would make the most rabid mullah's version of Sharia look tame by comparison.

Those who will not convert to their version of Christianity, and other "sinners" and "transgressors" will be killed by "Biblical" means, such as public stoning or by the sword.
