    Uh… Muslims declared a religious war on the US. Of course there is going to be some discrimination. The military is conservative. If you’re some *** who complains about minor things like this, you do not deserve to be in the service. Same goes for these losers whining about ACOGs with Biblical verses. I laugh at those who say it is Christian fundamentalism. Idiots.

    are you joking? we are sissies if we take it in the shorts from the muslims and then turn around and then tell them we don’t want to offend them. Come on US Military, see it for what it is – the king has no clothes and no one will talk about it. I, for one, am done being silent. Isalm is an evil that is dedicated to your destuction. I’m a real american citizen – representative of many others. Call me if you’d like. 541 773 7981

    You are the very scum that the US Military has been fighting for the past 200+ yrs! How dare you defend the right of muslims on ANY front!
    This is a CHRISTIAN nation….bought and paid for with the blood of CHRISTIAN soldiers!…..You make me want to PUKE!

    Well, I WANT to offend muslims ….. I don’t take any crap off them and they don’t belong in this country or any other country but their own. I offend them at every possible occasion.

    Muslims are a threat to this country as it was founded and for you to sit there and defend them makes me sick. Perhaps we shouldn’t of interfered with Auschwitz either! PIG

    It’s sad that this is occuring to Muslim soldiers. However..it is somewhat understandable, given the fact that Muslims have been responsible for almost all major acts of terror worldwide and the fact that a US Army officer..someone that was to be trusted..a psychaiatrist whom soldiers were to trust with their prsonal secrets…this Muslim killed many of their friends and loved ones in the name of his god. So if this guy faces a few barbs and insults, perhaps he can be the one Muslim who begins the groundswell from within where Islam finally has it’s Reformation and cleanses the cancer that has so deeply afflicted it.

    I want to thank the Military Religious Freedom foundation for taking such a principled stand. As a recently discharged officer from U.S. Army, I can tell you there is a lot of hatred for Muslims in the military, as can be observed from the above posts. There are bigots all over, but the military seems to have more than its fare share. I know those who worked with me know that I served my country well. But those who hate Islam are the same people who hated Jews a generation ago. Islam is growing fast in America, and these racists need to come to terms.

    Ayan..how dare you compare the treatment of Muslims to the treatment of Jews. Jews did NOT kill 3000 innocent people by flying planes into buildings..Jews did NOT behead innocent captives..Jews did NOT bomb subways in Madrid, London and Moscow, Jews are NOT calling on the name of Jehovah as they murder people…only 1 religious group is currently doing such horrible things. Islam…clean out your own house..then get back to the civilized world and become productive members of society. Un til Islam actually deals with it’s own internal cancer of violence, there will be prejudice against Muslims

    what wesker said…

    To all of you attacking Muslims on a religious basis of attacks that were made by an extremist group then you should also hate Catholics, Germans, and Evangelicals, all three have extremist groups in them that have at one time or another attacked US embassies or US troops I applaud Ayan because this country was founded on the basis of religious freedom for all not just Christians

    Furthermore, I am upset that so many people are willing to judge a religion based on the actions of a few members of said religion. What scares me the most though is what many of you are saying is remarkably similar to what the Vatican was saying just before it started the witch hunts, which resulted in one of the bloodiest single acts in history. Not to mention started the seeds to Satanic Witchcraft which is the single most violent form of witchcraft, indeed one of only a few forms of witchcraft which are violent, common witches primarily being spiritual and medicinal healers of a variety of pagan faiths.
