Some Religions Are More Equal Than Others - Not a Mosque Story

But interesting nonetheless. Troops: Refusing to attend Christian concert got us into trouble | Raw Story

Seems some troops didn't care to attend an evangelical rock concert. So they were locked-down in their barracks and told to clean it. Not free time - told not to use cell phones/computers, but told to work.

Some who did attend the concert were surprised at how religious it was.
Smith said he went up the chain of command and traced the concert edict to a captain, who said he simply wanted to "show support for those kind of events that bring soldiers together."

While not accepting blame, the officer apologized to the soldiers who refused to attend the concert and said it was not his intent to proselytize, he said.
So I wonder when said officer is going to schedule a non-Christian concert? Oh, that's right - proselytizing is against Army policy.

What is that line? It isn't about intolerance, it is about respect for the feelings of others. Something like that. (Or is that only when they want non-Christians to show respect for the feelings of Christians? No, can't be. That would be a double standard.)
