An Air Force general who recently spoke about how God has guided his career should be court-martialed, a civil liberties group is saying. In a speech at a National Day of Prayer Task Force event on May 7, Maj. Gen. Craig Olson credits God for his accomplishments in the military, and refers to himself as a “redeemed believer in Christ.” The Air Force Times reports that the Military Religious Freedom Foundation has taken issue with Olson’s remarks, is calling for the two-star general to be court-martialed and “aggressively and very visibly brought to justice for his unforgivable crimes and transgressions.”

Taking issue with the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, Why they are undermining the very constitutional rights given us by our Founding Father’s and the Constitution of the United States?
What is MRFF?
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) is a watchdog group and advocacy organization founded in 2005 by Michael Weinstein. The group’s stated goals are to “ensure that members of the United States Armed Forces receive the Constitutional guarantee of religious freedom to which they are entitled by virtue of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.”
Weinstein describes the group’s target as “a small subset of Fundamentalist Christianity that’s called premilliennial, dispensational, reconstructionist, dominionist,fundamentalist, or just Dominionist Christianity.” In 2012, Weinstein received total compensation worth $273,355 according to IRS filings accessed on the nonprofit transparency website GuideStar
In November 2014 press release, Weinstien alleged that Christians in America could “pose the same kind of threat” as the terrorist group ISIS does in the Middle East.
MRFF has been listed as an Anti-Christian Bigotry Group by the American Family Association as of March 2015 for “[filing] lawsuits and [using] intimidation to silence any reference to Christianity from the public square.”
So the group’s goals are to ensure that members of the US Armed Forces receive the Constitutional guarantee of religious freedom, unless you are a Christian so it seems. It’s time for American Christians to stand up and say enough is enough. Hands off our religious liberties!
Maj. Gen. Olson made a speech on God TV where he gave God the credit for his work and his family. This is what they are enraged about.
Maj. Gen. Olson say’s we can right these persecutions brought on against our Constitutional rights by returning to our Moral Compass. God Bless this man!
Is America’s Moral compass broken? I agree with Rabbi Cahn. It’s time to pray for God to open eyes and bring repentance to this country.
