WASHINGTON – The leader of an organization that fights against Christianity in the military was confronted by a Virginia Congressman this week during a hearing on religious freedom in the Armed Forces.
Rep. Randy Forbes (R), questioned Mikey Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation on Wednesday regarding statements that he had made in the past regarding the purpose of his activist organization and its views.
“Mr. Weinstein, in a Washington Post article dated July 16, 2006, they attributed a quote to you that said, ‘We’ve created this foundation to be a weapon. We going to lie down a withering field of fire and leave sucking chest wounds.’ Was that an accurate quote?” Forbes asked.
“I want to make it clear that what we are facing is a tsunami of fundamentalist Christian…” Weinstein proceeded.
“Did you make that quote or not?” Forbes asked, stating that he had just a few minutes to ask questions.
