Mikey Weinstein to Demand Gay General’s Court-Martial?

In July, Michael “Mikey” Weinstein called for “trial by courts-martial” for a group of officers he claimed violated the Constitution when they appeared in uniform at a Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty awards event. Among the several “accused” was Chaplain (MajGen) Dondi Costin, the Air Force Chief of Chaplains.

In his complaint, Weinstein made it clear that Chaplain Costin’s violation consisted of “his mere participation in this event in uniform.”

Last week, US Air Force Major General Patricia “Trish” Rose was “honored” by the homosexual advocacy group The American Military Partner Association — because she is the “highest ranking openly LGBT service member in the US military.” As pictures from the event show, MajGen Rose participated in the event while in, to use Mikey Weinstein’s terms and formatting, “FULL MILITARY UNIFORM.”

Do you think they’ll make a similar demand of Gen Rose?

The answer, of course, is no. Mikey Weinstein is a homosexual advocate when it suits his narrative (and his pocketbook), and Chris Rodda is homosexual — and their primary advocacy is clearly attacking Christians, contrary to their stern protests. In fact, while Weinstein and Rodda claimed the officers at the chaplain’s event were at fault for wearing their uniforms, they spent far more time claiming the event was

unquestionably a blatantly anti-LGBT, atheist-bashing, fundamentalist Christian supremacy event

Mikey Weinstein and Chris Rodda believe Christians who don’t hold the right kind of beliefs — as defined by them — should be court-martialed because of those beliefs. Naturally, mainstream Christian beliefs about sexuality fall into the MRFF’s unacceptable category.

The greater point, of course, is that uniformed military members appear at events like these all the time, and the military rarely indicates there is anything wrong in doing so. That context is further proof Weinstein and Rodda are desperately grasping at any avenue of attack they can make on Christians.  Given how common (and accepted) these circumstances are, combined with the vitriol of their accusations, it is clear their goal is to attack Christians whose faith they do not like — and they’ll use any method they can to achieve their goal.

Clearly, they’re in search of three possible outcomes:

  1. They find a willing accomplice in the military to take action in their favor (it happens);
  2. They stigmatize Christians into silence; and,
  3. They garner publicity and donations to the “charity” that funds both of their salaries.

In other words, it’s win-win for them, and only at the mere cost of the religious liberty of US troops.

In truth, MajGen Rose might have the harder time explaining her presence in uniform, because, as the Air Force explained, at least CALL was a military chaplain endorser — meaning it had an official connection to the military. AMPA, by contrast, is merely a homosexual activist organization. Of course, AMPA has used uniformed military members many times before to advance its cause, and no one seems to mind.

It’s almost as if sexuality is sacrosanct — and people are only concerned about troops being in uniform if they’re being associated with Christianity. That couldn’t be it, could it? Surely America and its military value religious freedom over sexual behavior.

Much to the chagrin of Mikey Weinstein and Chris Rodda, nothing official has come of their most recent and valiant attempt to crucify Christians they don’t think should be allowed to serve in the military. It goes to show, too, that the US military doesn’t have to jump at Weinstein’s beck and call.  Though loud and vociferous he may be, if the US military simply ignores Mikey Weinstein, he’ll sulk away. And ignore him they should.

Mikey Weinstein and Chris Rodda demonstrated their selective outrage by attacking Christians whose beliefs they didn’t like — while ignoring precisely the same conduct by others whose beliefs (or sexual behaviors) they didn’t mind.

Mikey Weinstein and Chris Rodda displayed bigotry, plain and simple — as they almost always do.

And the US military shouldn’t support their bigotry. Ever.
