Pastafarians would blend right in to desert environments. Or dessert environments.

This was an issue? I thought people knew when they signed up with the military that they were going to be required to give up their individuality for a job were everyone was forced to dress the same, have the same haircut, etc. etc.

Besides, don't most of the religions mentioned in TFA have some pretty concrete rules against killing people? The troops seemed to have reconciled their beliefs with that, but they think headgear is going to be the final straw with their god?

Prophet of Loss: JSTACAT: Remember when people 'in the know' were saying the US military was going to merge with the UN & we citizens would be subject to the new UN military -and- its laws?
Remember any of the other things they were saying?

Smackledorfer: anuran: Finally. The British and Indians have managed to maintain a professional, clean-cut image with Sikhs and Muslims. Israel has done it with Orthodox Jews complete with beards, sidecurls and tzitzis.

I thought the orthadox ones lived on the dole and 'studied' their religion 23/7 instead of being useful to society?


That's Congress.
