MRFF Legal Counsel Sends Demand to Air Force Base After Non-Response to Complaints of Gate Guards Wearing “In God We Trust” Tab on Uniform
“The practice of having uniform patches of an obvious religious nature, violates the rather direct prohibitions of AFI 1-1, § 2.12.
“They also violate AFI 36-2903, Dress and Personal Appearance of United States Air Force and United States Space Force Personnel (2022), and the Kirtland AFB, Supplement to AFI 36-2903, Dress and Personal Appearance of Air Force Personnel. (2020). Both note that ‘Compliance’ is ‘Mandatory,’ i.e., violations breach Article 92, UCMJ …”

Tell MRFF legal counsel to kiss our asses.This is what wrong with our country.
MRFF, KISS THE BIG ONE, and do not send anymore trash articles.
I TRUST IN GOD!!
The two commentators above speak as citizens which is their right.
A Right, by the way, defended by each and every citizen who has served or serves now in the Military and Government Services.
My father served in local and federal level government jobs, doing his best to meet the needs of his fellow citizens. He taught me that government is the agreement barbarians made with each other in order to live in close proximity without killing each other.
The two fine fellows above believe their flavor of extremism will win in the end.
I believe they are overly optimistic.
Didn’t the military make accommodations for Sikhs & Muslims? Seems they loosened the regs for turbans & beards. But someone wears a small Christian phrase & all of a sudden the powers to be start beating them over the head with the UCMJ. SMDH!
Where is it written in the Christian holy book that Christian’s must display their faith on their clothing? What verse? What chapter?
In fact isn’t the wearing of a cross around one’s neck in violation of that book? Isn’t the display we are talking about now considered part of worshiping idols?
So if I understand the rules correctly those soldiers are not only disobedient to military law but their own religious law too.
And yet we get comments defending this heinous act.
Seems to me those who claim religious preference don’t understand religion at all.
Show me on this doll where that pin hurt you?
Turbans and beards are REQUIRED by some religions, don’t have religious slogans written on them, and are not inherently religious symbols. I know of no religion that REQUIRES its followers to wear the words “in god we trust” on their clothing. If there is such a religion, what is it?
Boo hoo, the bad phwase huwt my wittle feel feels. Now i duno what to do
Wow. The ‘owning the libs’ scent is overwhelming in here!
All this fuss and nonsense without one verifiable fact among them. Try harder Nationalist Christians. The only ones fussing about emotions are you lot.
By the way – none of you have answered any of the relevant questions posed in other comments. It’s almost as if you’ve been making a big deal about nothing all along.
Joe asked at 7:30 pm on 1/8/23 “Didn’t the military make accommodations for Sikhs & Muslims? Seems they loosened the regs for turbans & beards?”
Short answer: NO
Long answer: they did not “loosen the regs.” If any military member wants to be exempted from a military regulation for religious reasons, each such person has to individually request that exemption, and to document how their religion specifically requires them to do whatever they want to do that otherwise is not allowed.
