Well the story of Jeremy Hall is finally making its way into the MSM after several months. I guess the press is finally getting tired of Brittany and Paris Hilton. The Army and Federal court seem to be dragging their feet and trying to avoid doing anything about the situation.
There are 1.36 million active duty service members, according to the Pentagon, and since 2005, it has received 50 formal complaints of religious discrimination, Ms. Lainez said.
In an e-mail statement, Bill Carr, the Defense Department’s deputy under secretary for military personnel policy, said he “saw near universal compliance with the department’s policy.”
Yeah, and we’ve all seen how accurate the governmental accounting agencies have been in this administration.
But Mikey Weinstein, a retired Air Force judge advocate general and founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said the official statistics masked the great number of those who do not report violations for fear of retribution. Since the Air Force Academy scandal began in 2004, Mr. Weinstein said, he has been contacted by more than 5,500 service members and, occasionally, military families about incidents of religious discrimination. He said 96 percent of the complainants were Christians, and the majority of those were Protestants.
I think Bill Carr is full of shit. The fundy Christians are causing this shit in the military and the moderate Christians are desparately trying to keep their heads in the sand by ignoring the whole mess.
MRFF has an interview with Mikey Weinstein and Jeremy Hallon ABC over at the MRFF website. I think I’ll send them some more money to help out with the lawsuits.
