No Snowflake in an Avalanche goes deep inside the terrifying world of religious extremism in America's military and political infrastructure from the perspective of Michael L. "Mikey" Weinstein, proud Air Force Academy graduate and son, father and father-in-law of military academy graduates who single-handedly brought to light the shocking national security threat of armed forces-entrenched, fundamentalist Christians' utter disregard for the Constitutional principle of separation of church and state that is so essential to the nation’s military mission. Weinstein's war pits him and his civil rights-fighting organization, the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, as well as a small band of fellow graduates, cadets, midshipmen, veterans and concerned citizens of varying religious backgrounds, against a pernicious and systemic tidal wave of Christian fundamentalist indoctrination intent on transforming our fighting men and women into "right-thinking", crusader-warriors more befitting an oppressive, fascistic theocracy than a Constitutionally-grounded democracy.
MICHAEL L. "MIKEY" WEINSTEIN is an attorney, businessman, and former Air Force officer. He was formerly a White House counsel in the Reagan Administration and General Counsel to two-time Presidential candidate and Texas billionaire H. Ross Perot and Perot Systems Corporation. He is founder and president of the four-time Nobel Peace Prize-nominated Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) and author of With God on our side: One Man’s War Against an Evangelical Coup in America s Military, in which he describes his fight against well-documented, coercive Christian Fundamentalism rampant in our United States military.
