    Endorsement of the dead teammate? WTF does that even mean? A religious expression over all others is a religious expression over all others.
    I am not in support ripping out headstones of dead soldiers...
    All religions are represented on the individual headstones identifying the individual dead soldiers religious preferences.
    That is very different from the state endorsing one religion over all others.
    I'm sure you understand this concept .
    You are just being pig-headed.
    That is fine with me ...anyone can see what you are doing.

    With an explicit religious symbol.

    No one advocates that.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    It's whining about a religious symbol because you somehow feel left out.

    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    I have no idea what you are talking about here.
    It must be you, projecting your own foibles onto others.

    And this was expression of his personal religion.

    If it helps, atheism was endorsed by the empty space next to the cross.
