    Mikey is in no place to demand anything.

    What “place” does a person have to be in to demand that AAFES obey the law and military regulations?

    Nobody is “forcing” anybody to buy this stuff. So if MRFF doesn’t like it they can go in their corner get some crayon and cry while they are coloring what offends them!

  5. Tom O

    The fact that “Nobody is ‘forcing’ anybody to buy this stuff” is irrelevant to the fact that the manufacturer is violating their licensing agreement by producing it, and the BX is violating regulations and the Constitution by selling it. THAT’s why MRFF is complaining, NOT because it “offends them.”

    So let me get this straight. This person complains about these items the exchange is selling. But I would venture to guess he does not complain about the money he is paid tha says ” In God We Trust ” on it.

  7. Tom O

    There is no law or govt regulation that forbids putting ” In God We Trust ” on US money.

    The PX is a store for people who live on base. It is not a government agency. In some foreign countries, the PX on base is the only place you can buy a Bible, Koran, or other religious item. The PX serves all military members, not just athiests or agnostics. Seeing this in the PX would be just like seeing it in a civilian store. Just ignore it and go about your business.

    You know … if you go back and look at the Constitution I don’t think it says anything about freedom FROM religion at all.

    The BX IS “a government agency.” The violation is NOT that the BX is selling religious items: it’s that Shields of Strength is violating their licensing agreement by selling tags with both the emblems of US armed forces and religious symbols or words on the same tag, and that the BX is selling them. Both of them are violating the Constitution’s prohibition of “establishment of religion.”

    The most relevant part is
    “In accordance with subpart 2635.702 of Title 5, Code of Federal Regulations (Reference (i)), DoD marks may not be licensed for use in a manner that creates a perception of DoD endorsement of any non-federal entity or its products and services. DoD marks may not be licensed for any purpose intended to promote ideological movements, sociopolitical change, religious beliefs (including non-belief), specific interpretations of morality, or legislative/statutory change”
