Dog tags

I just want to know if you were abused by some uncle when you were young?? You must have been because most people don’t become as big a prick as you. Why don’t you leave our soldiers alone when it has to do with their religious preferences. Nobody is ordering them to wear these tags. They do it because they choose to. It seems like you get off on making people miserable. I pretty sure when you pass on, nobody is going to give a rip. You my friend are one miserable SOB.

I really have no idea why you would write such an important email to me, sport?… Our position is supported by the constitution, federal statutes and DOD regulations… In fact the department of defense COMPLETELY agrees with us!… No need to thank us… 🙂 We are just simply doing our civil rights advocacy jobs…!!! Take care… Mikey Weinstein…

Your nasty name-calling is nefarious reflecting only on yourself & revealing a clueless contrarian who does not even comprehend the controversy.
The military, as a department of government, is required to remain neutral regarding religion (neither pro-religion nor anti-religion, but religion-neutral) & cannot promote & endorse a version of religion because it is prohibited by the Constitution, American law, Department of Defense regulatory laws & Armed Forces regulations.
Military personnel may personally pursue any belief & possess any religious scripture they desire, but the government cannot promote & endorse a version of religion in violation of our laws by placing it on government property (military identification tags) at taxpayer expense.

    Another attack on christianity! Shameful! So, does that mean Sikh’s shouldn’t be allowed to wear turbans, muslims shouldn’t have beards (military dress code for men and women) or hijabs? Right? Right? After all its part of their “religion” your actions are outrageous pandering of hate toward Christians its obvious, you should have your non profit status shut down!

    Kathy – please explain how having to follow the Constitution and DOD Regulations as they pertain to dog tags prohibits you from practicing your religion.

    (Big stage whisper) I think your privilege is showing.
