MILITARY OFFICER THANKS MRFF
FOR ITS GUIDANCE IN DEALING WITH
AN ALL-TOO-FAMILIAR SITUATION — THE
"ABCs" OF ILLICIT MILITARY PROSELYTIZING
On October 6, an active duty military officer contacted MRFF with the
type of complaint that is all too familiar to us — one that contained
the three common and consistent elements — or "ABCs" — that
constitute the majority of the issues reported to MRFF:
A. It involved a senior military leader.
B. The senior military leader was proselytizing their Christian faith to subordinate military members.
C. This proselytizing was done at a mandatory event, meeting, or formation at which the senior military leader’s subordinates were a captive audience.
A few days later, MRFF received the email below from the military officer, thanking us for both the information and the encouragement.
