ESSAY BY CHAPLAIN RESTORED
Had Been Pulled After Weinstein Complaint
By Harold Hutchison
An essay that was censored after it drew fire from Mikey Weinstein has been restored. The essay, titled “No Atheists in Foxholes: Chaplains Gave All in World War II,” had been posted on the web site for Elmendorf Air Force Base when its removal sparked controversy.
Weinstein, who has been meeting with Obama Administration officials, who have targeted a number of devoutly religious servicemen. Incidents have included servicemen, often devout Christians, being reprimanded. In some cases, military officials have acted to comply with Weinstein’s demands within hours.
Organizations like the Alliance Defending Freedom and the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty have been standing up for religious freedom for the troops. Weinstein, though, has vowed, “This ain’t over. This is just the beginning.”
