Winners of MRFF's Bad Chaplain Award: Head Chaplain at USAFA and Army 1st Recruiting Brigade Chaplain
MAJ Wayne Keast
United States Army 1st Recruiting Brigade Chaplain
Major Keast might just as well have come right out and told all the recruiters he emailed to be careful not to recruit any atheists or agnostics, or, for that matter, any other non-Christians! The message would have been the same. The hell with that pesky "no religious test" clause in that pesky Constitution that the major swore an oath to protect and defend.
After hearing from over three dozen recruiters who received Major Keast's email, MRFF founder and president Mikey Weinstein responded in his usual understated manner:
"DO SOMETHING, Air Force and Army! But we all know you won't, will you? You NEVER do. Which is precisely why your afflicted come to MRFF by the multiple thousands. The time for action is now! US Air Force Chaplain Colonel Bruno and U.S. Army Chaplain Major Keast should face immediate criminal charges under the Uniform Code of Military Justice for these disgusting, prima facie examples of dereliction of duty by flagrant violations of the solemn oaths they took; oaths NOT to Jesus or the New Testament but to our clearly secular United States Constitution. They are both heinous Poster Children of unconstitutional, fundamentalist Christian supremacy and exceptionalsm. Thus, they are base and vile criminals and religious predators. Try them both by courts-martial immediately!"
