MRFF Steps on Military Atheists’ Toes
Despite the often unified front of Michael Weinstein and his allies, it seems even his supporters are sometimes put off by his methods.
[Recently] a sign promoting leadership based on religion was removed based on MAAF intervention and the understanding of [Air Force] Academy officials. Resolution was simple because of open dialogue.
The invitation to Clebe McClary, a speaker whose website promotes a Christian military, to keynote the Academy’s official prayer breakfast Feb 10th caused concern among a number of organizations. MAAF reached out to the Academy and Clebe McClary directly. The Academy opened positive dialogue, but unfortunately the issue went to court before a collaborative solution could be reached. (emphasis added)
Seems the MAAF thought they were having a “positive dialogue” right up to the point Weinstein “unfortunately” filed his lawsuit.
