Mikey Weinstein Calls for Religious Test for Military Service
Jay Sekulow: Do you think [Christian] ‘fundamentalists and dominionists’ have the right to serve in the United States military?
Mikey Weinstein: They do not.
This from the guy who claims to defend “religious freedom” and frequently cites Article VI of the US Constitution, which ends with:
No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.
Mikey Weinstein wants a “religious test.” If you’re not the right kind of Christian — using his definition — he thinks you should be disqualified from government service.
That’s what he wants to instill. And that‘s the person to whom the US military has been accused of going as a “key resource” on issues of religion. Perhaps that’s one reason members of Congress — and others — seem to have a perception that there is some “religious hostility” in the US military.
