In his latest lurch to the extreme, former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn called for only one religion to be in America during a speech at the far-right “ReAwaken America” tour stop in San Antonio.

“If we are going to have one nation under God – which we must – we have to have one religion,” Flynn said. “One nation under God, and one religion under God.”

It goes without saying that Flynn’s vision is not only dangerous to other religions practicing in the United States, including yiddishkeit, but is also completely contrary to the Constitution’s guarantee of freedom of religion.

Perhaps more disturbing was Jewish Senate candidate Josh Mandel’s statement on Twitter supporting Flynn following his twisted comment. Mandel has been moving ever closer to the fringes of far-right radicalism in recent years as he attempts to win the GOP nomination to challenge Senator Sherrod Brown in Ohio.

  1. Jews have less to fear from his out of context comments than the religion of Woke and Leftism that inflicts all areas of public policy, media, schools, ….

  2. Who among the YWN commentariat is surprised that a Trump aide would call for a single religion? Not me.

    If I am not mistaken (which I once was), the words “under God” were added to the pledge of allegiance (quoted by Flynn) in 1954. Maybe it is time to remove those words, as it seems to confuse some simple-minded people, like Trump aides.

  3. How is this different from all the other agendas that are being forced on us, now that we have given up our freedom in the name of health. you give them control in the name of anything it doesn’t take long too become everything, you ever seen anyone relinquish power?! America had a nice run…

  4. His basic point was a plead for unity among religious people — it was clumsily spoken but of course this site must join the mainstream media to crucify a republican non-woke religionist.

  5. “maybe this was clumsily spoken”

    Sure, and maybe the January 6th riots were spontaneous, and maybe he didn’t really mean it when he urged trumped to invoke martial law to block the transitions to a new administration. No, maybe they don’t “mean it” but they sure keep saying it and to ignore the blather coming out of the mouths of these meshugaim is to proceed at your own risk. Mandel in Ohio is about as disgusting an excuse for a human being as one could find after he has literally crawled down into the slime and recently associated with some of the worst racists and white-supremacists who find him a useful fool.

  6. Need to know what he said after it was cut off to understand what he meant.

    I’m guessing he meant it in the context of proselytizing and convincing everyone to join his religion. Which is a pretty standard belief among religious (and atheistic) groups who believe in proselytizing

  7. He obviously didn’t mean to get Jews to CH”V convert to his idolatry.
    He did, however, obviously mean that the liberals should let them practice that idolatry, which is a very fair point.
    This explains Mandel’s comment, too.

  8. Constitution of United States of America 1789 (rev. 1992)
    Amendment I
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    Do you want to limit free speech??

  9. “an establishment of religion”

    But it says establishment”of religion” not “of A religion”. Does that mean they were talking about one religion? It doesn’t seem to be talking anout more than one religion. Interesting

  10. We will have one religion very soon when Moshiach comes. He’s right there can only be one true religion. He just doesn’t know what it is. We do though so we are lucky to be ahead and to part of the Am Hanivchar!

  11. All those who believe that General Flynn actually meant this are playing into the hands of the radical fake news. He meant that the United States needs to believe in one Gd if we are to save our country.

    From the Chofetz Chayim to the Lubavitcher Rebbe and Rav Avigdor Miller, they all stressed the importance of believing in a Supreme Being and that atheism is what needs to be fought against.

  12. Wow! OMG! Breaking news! A Christian believes in Christianity. Never saw that coming. Can we grow up? He’s not talking forced conversion rm”l. He’s practicing his religion and hoping for a day when all will join him. That’s literally been his religion’s creed for millenia. Bottom line, the American left is a much bigger threat than the American right. It’s not even close.

  13. Boruch Hashem Trump and his clan are no longer in power. That this man served as National Security Advisor should horrify all. Flynn retweeted “Not again Jews, not again” before his appointment so this should come as no shock.

    For all those in Ohio. Recognize that Josh Mandel is a dangerous candidate willing to pander to extremism fo his own political gain. All concerned frum yidden must mobilize to defeat Josh Mandel.

  14. Trump and his fraudsters scream about the constitution but ignore it when it suits their political needs just as they scream law and order and break laws and sow chaos when it suits their needs.

  15. GHT, you are “about as disgusting an excuse for a human being as one could find” and you have “literally crawled down into the slime and recently associated with some of the worst” of the worst, i.e. Democrats.

  16. Why should he not call for one religion? We do the exact same thing many times a day. Of course we think our religion should be that one religion, and he thinks his should be. Of course he does; how could we expect anything else? Why would anyone want someone else’s religion to be the one religion?

    Psyched, he did not call for an established religion.

    Rightwriter, an establishment of religion means an official state religion, like the Church of England. At the time the USA was founded many states or even towns had official religions, funded by taxes. The ministers were paid by the government. People were still entitled to practice other religions, just as they are in England. The first amendment provided that the federal government could not make an official religion for the whole USA; it was to remain for the states or localities to choose whether to have one, and if so which one. It was only in the mid-twentieth century that the courts decided the 14th amendment had extended that prohibition to the states. And they were very likely wrong.
