    I was sent this link URL as my Christmas Gift from a co-worker, Senior Chief Engineman SS one of the first to qualify in Navy nuclear power. When we were retired, I was afraid for his future, losing the battle with the bottle. He has not, and is a good friend.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Because obviously non-christians can't be moved by the sound of the music, and the near-perfect unison of the vocals. And therefore, such a song by the military band, in a military facility for the public, is an automatic jab at all non-christian people.

    Are you so insecure in your mythos, that you have to take every single geasture and act of a basic tradition, and its related music, as a show of force against those you see as non-believers? If so, then I pity you.

    What are you talking about? ?

    Were you somehow offended by the OP? ?

    The problem with America is stupidity.
    I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

    No desire to start a religious based argument here. Seriously, officially won't be received well. No more please.

    Accordingly have edited the title to remove the gauntlet - deleted reference to non-believers in title.
