  •  How do they handle Quakers? (2+ / 0-)

    Don't remember if Mike Weinstein and Chris Rodda of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation have anything geared to this. They are primarily focused on exposing and eradicating discrimination. That could at least include knowledge of what is going on to promote more freedom to establish these kinds of groups.

    •  I didn't know there were Quakers in uniform... (0+ / 0-)

      ... at least not in combat roles, since pacifism is a central tenet of the Society of Friends.  

      But in any case I don't have even a faint clue as to an answer.

      "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.

      •  I think there are some who serve in (0+ / 0-)

        non combat positions- at least I remember being surprised to find out there were any Quakers who would serve. Probably too small to trigger any adjustment of the rules you are considering.

        Mike and Chris would be quite likely to have some idea what may be going on. Even though it isn't exactly their focus, non Christian groups trying to have their own services would be targets for discrimination and may have contacted the MRFF for help in dealing with that.
