MRFF Nominated for Nobel Prize


The Military Religious Freedom Foundation, an organization founded to combat religious fundamentalism in the U.S. armed forces, has been nominated for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize.

"It's one of those things -- like an Academy Award -- even if you don't win you're always a nominee," MRFF founder Mikey Weinstein, a former Air Force lawyer, told Monday. He said he felt the nomination would boost the credibility of MRFF and expected those who support the foundation's work will be reenergized by the nomination. He also predicted that those opposed MRFF will criticize it.

"My hope is the average American will look [at the nomination] and say, maybe there's something we should look at here," he said.
