Sadly I’m praying for a change of heart

You want separation but why

What has any God done to you that you want to hurt others beliefs?

Can only hope and pray that when you need Jesus Christ
He will forgive your sin and aid you in your troubles

As an FYI this is the only letter I’ve written about God as I did not believe until I was brought to my knees

Cease and desist in hurting others regardless of your personal issues with God

You are one hurt person I can see

Military members may pursue any belief & possess any scripture they want, but a private civilian business cannot illegally profit from its souvenir military merchandise by misrepresenting & marking them as official government issued military identification tags in violation of its lawful procurement contact with the US Department of Defense and Department of Defense regulatory laws.
As Founder & 2nd President John Adams wisely wrote – The very definition of a republic is a nation “of laws, and not of men.” (“Thoughts on Government”, 1776).
Most Sincerely,

Yes I agree with some of that
But this nation was founded in religious freedom

The freedom fighters should have their right when bearing arms to state that freedom in their tags at a minimum

Your willingness to judge others tells us you haven’t really gotten it yet. Very sad.
In fact, we are not taking anything away from anyone. The “Christian” company that makes and sells these “dog tags” is violating the agreement they made with the military, an agreement that specifically said that anything with an approved military identification on it MAY NOT be used to make a profit or to promote a religious perspective.
So you may now more properly turn your judgmental eye toward the “Christian” company that is violating its agreement.
