Re: “Mikey's Mission

I am an evangelical Christian. I am also the wife of a retired serviceman. My experience with military chaplains was very different than any of the comments that I have read by Mr Weinstein. I never felt that any chaplain regardless of his particular religious tradition forced his or her faith on me. I am outspoken about my faith in the correct invironment, but I never felt that the Chaplains that I dealt with were one sided or tried to proselytize me in any way. Many were evangelical, but not from my own church affiliation. We had a mutual respect for our differences. As a part of my experiene working with the American Red Cross, I worked with many Chaplains and religious persons. The military Chaplains that Mr. Weinstein is describing isn't the military that I know and love.

I think that Mr. Weinstein is off base. I have many Jewish friends and again there is a mutual respect for our differences. We share who we are and our understanding of the Bible. We agree to disagree. Sometime I learn from them and sometimes they learn from me. It is a mutual sharing of what we know and understand.

Just to make sure I am clear, I also have friends who are Buddhist, Muslim, Pagans, Atheists and etc. Again, it is a mutual understanding that we have, We will respect each other and not defame or disregard the faith or lack of faith of another.

I will always make my views known when the time is appropriate, but not to disregard anyone else.

The very thing that Mr. Weinstein is accusing Evangelical's of, he is guily of himself. This isn't war. We are American's. There is a war being fought against us and it will get worse. Instead of fighting about what makes us different, why not use your training to fight what can and wll destroy us if we continue to be divided.
