Army Makes Uniform Accommodations for Muslims, Sikhs

(Before It's News)

The politically correct insanity does not stop with the NYPD. It extends even to the U.S. Army:

The U.S. Army has taken new steps to make it easier for Sikhs, Muslims and other religious minorities to obtain approval to dress and groom themselves according to their religious customs while serving in the military, a spokesman said on Thursday.

As in NYC, the moonbattery is intended to pander to Muslims, but spills over onto other exotic foreign entities, including Sikhs.

Army Secretary Eric Fanning, in a memorandum signed this week, revised the uniform policy to set appearance standards for people seeking religious accommodations to wear beards, turbans and head scarfs. …

An approved religious accommodation will continue throughout the soldier’s career and may not be revoked or modified without approval of the Army secretary, the memo says. The accommodation will not affect job specialties or duty locations, except in a few limited cases, the memo says.

This is good to know, now that we will have women serving in combat:

The new rules allow head scarfs, or hijabs, for Muslim women.

Meanwhile, if an officer so much as leaves a Bible on his desk, the brass will come down on him like a ton of bricks. Religious “tolerance” is a one-way street.

  • As much as Islam (like most religions) sickens me, they either have to pander to all religions or none of them—which for practical purposes the latter would be the most preferable.

    • Frankly, no one is forcing them to enlist, so if they choose to do so it should be with the understanding that they’ll have to make concessions.
