What ever happened to the separation of church and state. Two years ago the pentagon passed a ruling that soldiers couldn't talk about Christianity with other soldiers that weren't Christian or had no belief system. It was said that the Christians were trying to push their religion on others.

===============================================
WASHINGTON, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army announced a new policy that permits religious exemptions for uniform regulations, allowing for beards, turbans, hijabs and other signs of religious devotion.

The policy, which can be overturned by the incoming Trump administration, allows brigade commanders to grant permission for religious garb, rather than previous rules that called for individual soldiers to petition the secretary of the Army. The new rule makes it easier for Sikhs, Muslims and members of other religious groups to wear outward signs of devotion. Commanders are permitted to deny an exemption if they feel the soldier does not have a sincerely held religious belief or if it poses a "concrete hazard" to the soldier.

"The Army has reviewed its policies to ensure soldiers can serve in a manner consistent with their faith so that we can recruit from the broadest pool of America's best," Army Secretary Eric Fanning said in a statement. "This directive provides the guidance our leaders and soldiers need and enables the Army to better reflect the nation and citizenry it protects."

Prior to the new regulation, service members who sought a religious exemption had to display "proof of concept" that showed their turbans, head scarves or other garb did not effect the unit.

This IS BULLSHIT! Anyone should KNOW that any type of military service requires "uniformity", discipline, education, ability, and will. soldiers are NOT "snowflakes"! Soldiers show strength through numbers and uniformity, NOT as individuals or snowflakes. The US Military, up until Obama, has been the becon of strength and unity to the world. something that SHOULD be RESPECTED and FEARED. Trump plan for a tough reformed take no shit military is exactly what the US NEEDS right now! NOT a bunch of libtard snowflakes.

Protestant, Catholic, and Jewish chaplains put aside their respective religions' clerical garb and wear uniforms according to the same tegulations as others in service. They cut their hair according to military regulations. While in uniform Muslims, Shieks, and others should do the same. Off duty in civies, let them wear turbans if they want.

Pardon me while I puke in my own boots!

The US military does NOT serve to protect its citizens but rather to advance the greater wishes of the f**king thieves running the US fed'ral reserve...

For someone to believe otherwise is a level of naive and gullible that astounds this writer...

The constitution allows for religious freedom but doesn't allow for government money to be spent on religions.
The op knows how easily he's been brainwashed and is scared other religions will succumb to his temptation to f**k goats.
