Skip to comments.Pentagon relaxes rules on religious apparel, facial hair
Posted on 01/22/2014 12:38:42 PM PST by lowbridge
The Pentagon on Wednesday relaxed its rules governing the religious apparel and facial hair that troops can wear or maintain while in uniform, permitting in some cases tattoos, body piercings and other religious items.
The Defense Department issued the changes via a directive Wednesday afternoon. As part of the military's changing approach to making religious accommodations, the new policy will allow service members to sport different kinds of religious garb and hairstyles so long as they don't have an "adverse effect on military readiness, mission accomplishment, unit cohesion, and good order and discipline."
The changes create several new categories, besides clothing, of religion-based features that can be displayed by troops. These now include facial hair, such as beards, and religious tattoos and piercings.

I look forward to their previewing the new New All New Marine Corps Burqas
They’ll bend over backwards (or forwards if you’re the ‘right kind of soldier’) to accommodate every religion they can find, no matter how bizarre, except one...
Have to accomodate the miuslim terrorists Obama has been recruiting.
Not good. Not good at all.
Who would have been asking to be able to have body piercings?
That’s funny tattoos are against my religion, the Catholic Church.
I guess the military is accommodating some cult
What a great idea!
Isn’t survival in an NBC environment a mission requirement?
Would the least person out, please turn off the lights..
You beat me to it. LOL!!!
Clearly pandering to the amish.
A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
By spreading this definition around, perhaps we can employ one of the more effective methods of deflating and defeating the fools who practice and promote it: RIDICULE.
Unless stopped and soon PC will DESTROY Western Civilization -- if it hasnt already.
PASS IT ON!!
THEN PASS THE KOOL AID!!
