Another attack on christianity

Another attack on christianity! Shameful! So, it’s not ok to have a bible verse on a dog tag because it’s a issue of “separation of church and state”? Yet, Sikh’s can wear turbans(part of their religion), Muslim men can have beards(part of their religious beliefs, but goes against military dress code) and Muslim females can wear hijabs(religious belief)or other headdress other than a military cap. It’s a double standard and your bias shows, disgraceful!! Your non profit should be shut down!

I’m sorry you’re so offended by the military’s accommodations to certain cultural concerns, but I’d suggest you take that up with the Pentagon. Our point is not about an attack on Christianity, as you’d understand if your mind was open enough to consider it. We oppose the breach of the separation of church and state by using a facsimile of a government artifact to proselytize for one religion over all others.
Since you began your tirade with the words “Another attack on Christianity!,” it’s hard to miss seeing that you’re one of those who want to believe Christianity is under attack. The promotion of that kind of nonsense is effective, I’m sure, with those who somehow feel closer to heaven when they suffer for their belief. But please note that we have no problem with Christianity, as 95+% percent of our staff, clients and supporters are themselves Christians. Our sole aim is to see that the Constitution, our laws, our military regulations and the separation of church and state are maintained in order to protect the freedom of religious or non-religious choice, whatever it may be, of all those in the military.
