The man should be allowed to have his beard. His religion should be respected.
wow that's quite the beard....the man ought to be in commercials.
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.
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!
So, are those who constantly assert that there is a war on religion, going to
support this?This should be interesting.
