Maybe, now, the point will finally be clear to those in command. If not, I'm sure there's more where this came from.
And, for the clearest take on Mikey's stand, regarding the USAFA oath:
For those with a sense of truth and humor, here's a fresh take on Klingenschmitt, who is now running for political office: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vNDnd4Ly2OU. Start at 11:16, to focus in on the portion exclusively about him. His lies and extremism are illustrated with his own words and actions, there. And he's the chaplain suing Mikey Weinstein.
@Anothergrad, your interpretation of Willoughby's email stands in stark contrast to the direct quote out of that very email by @aveteran. Why is that?
@Anothergrad, don't you remember the live nuclear warheads which were flown WITHOUT ORDERS from Minot AFB, ND, to Barksdale AFB, LA -- all the way across our nation?!
Google it. And, while you're at it, google the nuclear detonators which were "ACCIDENTLY" shipped TO TAIWON, Republic of CHINA, a year and a half earlier, and not discovered for TWO YEARS -- that is, the detonators were discovered six months after the live nukes were flown across country WITHOUT ORDERS.
Now, what were you saying about Obama? Oh, that's right: It's beside the point -- the point I was making. It was muddying the waters.
For anyone still following this thread, allow me to introduce a scenario: Let's say, instead of an athletic trainer, the person so intent on putting his religious beliefs ahead of his oath to defend the Constitution is in charge of ordering nuclear missile deployments. And, let's say, he has a dream or daydream or religious hallucination which he believes, with all his heart, is Jesus Christ telling him the time for Armageddon is now, and he has been hand picked to get the ball rolling.
Do you think he will ask up his chain of command, first, for permission?
@Anothergrad: Obama is not in the DoD, he is above the DoD, so he falls outside Weinstein's purview, with regard to lawsuits. Bringing him into this is a muddy-the-waters tactic.
Weinstein sued that chaplain you mention because the chaplain used "imprecatory prayer" to transmit a plea to his followers to murder Weinstein, his wife, and the rest of his family -- exactly the sort of crime judges tend to throw out of court until after the murder/assassination occurs, proving the point.
Perhaps you should have named the chaplain, so others can look him up. It's Klingenschmitt. As a matter of fact, Klingenschmitt was ousted from the military for bad behavior before Weinstein became an issue. Maybe that's why you didn't name him, after all.
As for Willoughby, Weinstein will, as is proper, give the military time and chance to properly manage the situation or to prove that proper management will not occur. Then, if/when the latter is evident, I expect he will sue. This time, it will be harder for a judge to say, "If you are right, Mr. Weinstein, then I will agree with you, but I cannot tell who is right, you or the USAFA, so I will just side with the USAFA, and give them the benefit of the doubt." That, of course, is a paraphrase, not a quote, per se.
