Yeah, and we've all seen how accurate the governmental accounting agencies have been in this administration.
There are 1.36 million active duty service members, according to the Pentagon, and since 2005, it has received 50 formal complaints of religious discrimination, Ms. Lainez said.
In an e-mail statement, Bill Carr, the Defense Department’s deputy under secretary for military personnel policy, said he “saw near universal compliance with the department’s policy.”
But Mikey Weinstein, a retired Air Force judge advocate general and founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said the official statistics masked the great number of those who do not report violations for fear of retribution. Since the Air Force Academy scandal began in 2004, Mr. Weinstein said, he has been contacted by more than 5,500 service members and, occasionally, military families about incidents of religious discrimination. He said 96 percent of the complainants were Christians, and the majority of those were Protestants.I think Bill Carr is full of shit. The fundy Christians are causing this shit in the military and the moderate Christians are desparately trying to keep their heads in the sand by ignoring the whole mess.
See here for a previous post on this. It looks like the story is on CNN as well.
MRFF has an interview with Mikey Weinstein and Jeremy Hallon ABC over at the MRFF website. I think I'll send them some more money to help out with the lawsuits.
