A disgusting anti-religious military group just did something that will certainly make your blood boil.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), which is run by Mikey Weinstein, complained to the media when an Air Force Academy assistant football coach, Steed Lobotzke, tweeted Bible verses from his personal account.
Of course, as you might suspect, sharing Bible verses on Twitter is not a violation of the law or the school’s rules. Yet despite that, the MRFF chose to be unnecessarily ruthless against the assistant coach.
Here are several tweets which were criticized by MRFF from Lobotzke:
Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. (John 3:3 ESV)

I saw the Spirit descend from heaven…and it remained on him…And I have seen and have borne witness that this is the Son of God. John1:32

Several Bible verses on an explicitly labeled private account were apparently enough to send Weinstein and the rest of MRFF group into complete hysterics, accusing Lobotzke of “Christian evangelizing via twitter, blatantly defying Air Force regulations.”
The MRFF told The Gazette in a statement:
“Today, the Air Force Academy senior leadership clearly shows that unchecked Christian extremism is worse than ever at the Academy, especially on its football team, with the shocking discovery of what the football team’s Tight Ends Coach, Steed Lobotzke, a 1992 USAFA grad, has been doing with his official USAFA football twitter account.
The official twitter feed is filled with illicit proselytizing in the name of Jesus Christ and even includes such biblical citations juxtaposed with pictures of official football team meetings.”
But the Air Force didn’t seem to mind the tweets by Lobotzke.
Instead, they noted Twitter accounts of coaches are personal and have no connection to the Air Force Academy Athletic Department.
The Air Force Academy Athletic Department responded:
“The Academy remains committed to protecting individuals’ right to practice any religion they choose, or no religion, provided their practices do not violate policy or law, or impede mission accomplishment, military readiness, unit cohesion, standards or discipline.”
That statement wasn’t even enough to satisfy Weinstein, who told The Gazette, “This is complete and utter (expletive), there will be a lot more to come on this.”
It’s not surprising that Weinstein has been widely criticized for waging a war on Christianity.
He has described Christians as,“gangs of fundamentalist Christian monsters who terrorize their fellow Americans by forcing their weaponized and twisted version of Christianity upon their helpless subordinates.”
Weinstein has had public disputes with religious figures like James Dobson and Ted Haggard, even challenging Haggard to a fight after an email between the two was leaked to the press.
His views are radical and extreme, yet meanwhile, he makes those same claims about others.
In November 2014, Weinstein claimed that “radical Christians” in America could pose the same level of threat that ISIS has on the Middle East.
MRFF is an anti-Christian bigotry group that relies on intimidation and hyperbole to silence any opposition to their bogus cause.
If you ever see the words “Military Religious Freedom Foundation” or “Michael Weinstein”, just walk away.
