Why would you care

Dear Mike,

Not sure why you would care why soldiers receive dog tags with religious verses in them. It saddens me that you would infringe on the right of young men an women to be encouraged by a Bible verse. Extremely discouraging what you are doing and how you are going about it. I’m sure you think you are serving a greater purpose for all. However as someone who finds comfort In the word of my God I think your wrong. I’m sure you don’t care. And frankly it doesn’t matter what you think . We will all have to answer for the things we have done in this life. What they are doing should not offend you in the least. If they want a Bible verse that reminds them to be strong and courageous then let them wear it. Not seeing how that’s offensive. Please stop what you think is serving your agenda and consider someone other then your own personal thoughts.
Good day

Dear (name withheld),

People get a lot of bad information from Fox News. If you and others want to carry biblical messages with you, we’re fine with that.

But the company that makes these dog-tags made an agreement with the government that in order to use the military ID on the

tags that makes them government-approved, they cannot promote any religion or religious message. That’s because the government

does not endorse or sponsor or promulgate any one faith over any other. It’s called the separation of church and state.

So carry what you like, but expect the people that sell things to you to honor the agreements they make. This company did not.

(name withheld), please be advised that military members may possess any belief & purchase any scripture they desire, but a civilian business is lawfully prohibited from knowingly & illegally profiting off of them by misrepresenting & mismarking its souvenir merchandise as official government issue military identification tags in violation of its own licensing agreement with the Department of Defense & regulatory laws. That is why the military stopped it.

    You must have turned your back of your famiky’s g-d. Your bubba is weeping in heaven. Your foundations name is a farce. A lie. You are a liar. Military Rrligious Freedom means military have the freedom to choose to be religious or not.

    Are your whiny demands that are opposite of your organization name a back foot to your own product to replace it.

    Or has soros or another deep state group paid you 13 shackles to do this

    Either way you are below the scum of the earth. May my Almighty Father cast you into deepest parts of hell today. Because you have damned yourself there by your actions. Almighty God gear my plea and have this happen today.

    Well, Berman, we will find out tomorrow whether God has granted your plea and has put the MRFF out of business.

    Hey Reta!

    Your prayer failed. You have no power here. You never did.

    Go back under the rock from which you crawled and bother no one who lives in the light again.

    Or, take a good long look at your life, the hate you feel inside for others who are Not Like You. Accept your Lord and Savior into your heart – and I’m talking about the creator who created and loves you, not the deity you and whatever pastor you follow created during Sunday hatefests.

    As always, the choice is yours. I hear Jesus knocking for you, do you?
