If Mr. Monk would be so kind as treat his religious superstition private and personal like he treats his dirty underwear; he wouldn't have these problems
Monk's freedom of religion ends where the next soldier's freedom begins

The same thing happened in 1948 when President Truman signed an Executive integrating the military and mandating equality of treatment and opportunity. A bigot is a bigot. Ancient religious beliefs are not an excuse. It's the 21 century - grow up.

I agree. Monk should have known enough to treat all of his fellow soldiers with respect. He should have kept his relationship with the Almighty between them. Jesus warned us about those who need to make a spectacle of their religion.

If you read the original article in it's entirety, you'll see that he never answered the commander's question regarding his belief. He refused to answer! So essentially he was dismissed for saying absolutely nothing!
