So, are those who constantly assert that there is a war on religion, going to support this?

This should be interesting.

It just hurts you people at this newspaper when the Obama Administration is actually on your side and you still have to take a shot. Maybe the so-called war on religion that you have been fretting about is a mere concoction intended to advance the particular interests of the religious institutions seeking an advantage. THERE IS NO WAR ON RELIGION!

Speaking as a religious (LDS) person, I think we need to consider that the greatest ally of religious freedom is separation of church and state. Only when our government does not favor one religious belief over another can we really have religious freedom. We also need to consider that there is a false belief, becoming more and more prominent, that religious freedom involves a right for religious groups to impose their will on others. This is patently untrue and not at all in the spirit of religious freedom. Very few things are more important than freedom of religion, but we really need to examine what it truly means.

The man should be allowed to have his beard. His religion should be respected.
