The Democrats and the loony left hates God and everything that He stands for. They attack religion at every turn in an attempt to get the extreme minority to force the majority to stop engaging in religious matters. It has been 20 years that people in the military have been wearing dog tags with inspirational Bible verses on them. For many people, it is the way that they remember their loved one’s sacrifice for their freedoms and their nation. But because of one stupid complaint from one person, they may have to stop producing the tags.
The organization that is under attack is the Shields of Faith. They produce the dog tags for people that request them to be made. They do not force the Bible verses on anyone that does not want them. But Mikey Weinstein is being the wiener dog behind the move to remove the verses from the public eye. He claims that it “poisons the constitutionally mandated separation of Church and State….” It is obvious that Weinstein does not know the meaning of the words “separation of church and state” That were spoken during the formation years of this country.
Those words keep the government from establishing one religious authority over all the people. Great Britain had a governmentally established religion when the United States was formed. The founding fathers did not want that to happen in America. If the people wanted to put Bible verses on their dog tags, then they have the freedom to do so. Under an established religion, they would not be able to put the verses on the tags. Weinstein is trying to establish the religion of self and impose it on everyone. In essence, he is trying to establish a national religion in America.
Every military branch caved in and began to remove the licenses that Shields of Strength had. What they were told was “You are not authorized to put biblical verses on your Army products. For example, Joshua 1:9. Please remove ALL biblical references from all of your Army products.” The stupid forcing of Weinstein is leaving a lot of people speechless as to the stupidity of what he is forcing people to do. All based on one complaint that he received from some cowardly person trying to make themselves feel big for making people bow to their beliefs.
In response, Mike Berry who is the chief of staff and director of military affairs for First Liberty stated “Your directive that SoS remove all Biblical references from its Army-licensed products is unconstitutional and violates RFRA. It’s insane. It’s incredibly selfish. All we do is provide a reminder of God’s word. No one has to do this.” He went on to blast Weinstein “Virtually every unit has contacted us and said, ‘Would you make us a tag with our unit on it?’ We’ve seen the fruit of the mission. Literally thousands of soldiers, airmen, marines, telling us with tears in their eyes how much it’s meant to them, and many times the Gold Star families to be in possession of the dog tag they wore,” he added. “I don’t understand it.”
Wiener dog Weinstein is not a favorite of many people. Berry went on to say about the stupid man that “Just when I didn’t think Mikey Weinstein could stoop any lower, he pulled a stunt like that. He’d rather take it away from them just to raise his own publicity than support our service members … that’s pretty cowardly and that’s cruel.” Berry said it right that Weinstein is cowardly and cruel to make others do what they do not want to go regarding their expressions of faith.
This sadistic attempt by one person is an example of how low the Democrats in America will go to push their anti-God agenda on every faith-based person. They constantly twist the words of the founding fathers to mean things that they were never intended to mean. The dumb Democrats and Weinstein are anti-American. They hate people of faith and want to see them without faith and God in their lives. American stands for freedom and that will never change.
