Wow, just wow....

Not the Army I served in. Military used to be very quiet on the subject of religion, you could have it or not. Now a letter of reprimand for this? signs, shakes head and walks off.... Regardless of his belief and stand, this doesn't seem to warrant this type of attention. Nothing illegal here.

Americans need to trust that their Army will do the job of protecting Americans without the application of religious or political prejudice.

Right.

No doubt this axiom is foremost in the mind of every soldier in the U.S. military while he is engaged in the act of raping a female soldier.

Wouldn't be a problem if women were banned from the military, as they should be.

How 'bout this: we ban MEN from the military. Guys have had to fight for awhile now. Make it an all women army. We did our turn, now it's their turn. Sound fair?

Yes, but this isn't your father's military. Per Clinton's orders, homos and women are now part of today's 'we love everyone and we want everyone to feel at home' military. And, for the record, anyone who promotes old fashioned values will receive a kick in the nuts.

How is his following his beliefs -- when not on duty -- a violation of that principle?

Or are you arguing that soldiers must check all of their beliefs at the door when they sign up and be automatons while serving?

Or are you arguing that when he's on the front line he's thinking that he may not shoot the enemy this time because gays are getting married in the US?

Hopefully your narrowmindedness and prejudice also would extend so that the army should have kicked Nidal Hassan out pretty much as soon as he expressed an interest in Islam.

Works for me!

I saw almost no women at all in the Army when I was in. I also was never chastised in any way about religion or whether or not to attend chapel. It was probably the only TRULY voluntary activity I can remember in my whole three years.

A lot can change in 42 years.

I'm glad "old fashioned values" going the way of the babyboomer (read the dodo).

Without all the details, one can only make assumptions about how private the promotion party was. Also whether or not it was attended by members of the media or superior officers.

A Master Sergeant should know better than to involve himself publicly in such a charged partisan issue. Politics is for politicians, not enlisted men.
Seems like he just couldn't resist trying to make his own little statement when he had the conch, and it bit him right in the rear.

I would wager that many servicemen supported the Chik-fil-a position, which is their right, just not when in uniform or when representing the United States Military.

Sounds like a case for the ACLU.

Yeah, that's all we need, the ACLU involved in the military. Anyone thinking that is a good idea has probably never served.
