A decorated Air Force General, who’s served his country with honor and distinction is facing a new, unforeseen enemy: fellow Americans who despise any public display of Christianity.
Todd Starnes explains:
So you can imagine my surprise when I received a press release from the Military Religious Freedom Foundation calling for the arrest of now Brigadier General Teichert – the new wing commander at Edwards Air Force Base in California.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation is an organization that trolls military bases in search of any public display of the Christian faith. They are typically triggered by Nativity scenes and Bibles placed on Missing Man tables.
MRFF founder Mikey Weinstein was especially angered to learn that Gen. Teichert owns a website called, “Prayer at Lunchtime for the United States.”
The website encourages “Bible-believing Americans to take time to specifically pray for our nation at lunchtime every day.” It also features a prayer list – including among others President Trump, Vice President Pence, Congress and the military.
Weinstein urged Secretary of Defense Mattis to investigate General Teichert, calling the commander of Edwards Air Force Base a “fundamentalist Christian tyrant and religious extremist predator.”
