Manipulation of religious freedom

Sir, shame on you for complaining that a bible verse on a soldier’s dog tag is unconstitutional! It is the soldier’s choice and the founding fathers would look upon you with shame, you and mrff are doing nothing more than infringing upon the beliefs of others solely because of the hatred of God within your own heart, mind your business sir, the men and women who serve this wonderful country have the right to express their faith and it is not yours or anyone elses business to tell them they cannot.

Hi (name withheld),
Nobody here hates God. It’s astonishing to me to see this kind of nonsense comes from thinking
people.
Why so defensive? Are you so caught up in the horse manure about a ‘war on Christianity’ that you
can’t understand it is wrong for a so-called “Christian company” to violate the agreement it made?
In order to get the official seal of approval and be able to include the military ID on their dog-tag
(clearly to give the impression the government approved of it) they signed an agreement that no
religious passages or religious promotion would be placed on the item. Then they violated it.
We don’t care if you or this company wants to fake an item and promote whatever faith you
choose, but you may not do so with the official government imprint that makes it appear the
U.S. Government is favoring on religious belief over another. That is a violation of both law and
military regulations.
So forgive me, but I’m tired of this. Please take your ‘hatred of God’ mantra and stuff it in your hat.

A number of people. But probably most significantly, the Army Trademark Licensing Program.

    I wonder if Mike Farrell would feel any different if a trademark was not on the dog tags but just a verse? Nobody would see them anyway.

  2. Grey One talks sass

    I wonder if WFZ337 would feel differently if the verses on the tags were from another religion.

    We all know the answer to that one!

    Hail Satan and Ramen.
