According to Former US Ambassador Joe Wilson, Military Religious Freedom Foundation founder and head Mikey Weinstein has placed his life on the line in an ongoing campaign that has "almost single handedly" blunted an evangelical attempt to take over the US military. Presumably that's why the influential and affluent Pacific Palisades Democratic Club of Santa Monica, California had offered Weinstein the club's Anne Froelich Political Courage Award, which in the past has gone to heavy hitters such as Ron Kovich, Phil Donahue, Daniel Ellsberg, and Joseph and Valerie Wilson. But the club has just withdrawn its offer. The stated reason ? - Mikey Weinstein served in the first Reagan Administration.
