Don’t you touch a hair on that mass-murderer’s beard, America

The same people who mock Christians for their beliefs will tell you that there’s nothing wrong with the following news. Associated Press:

The Army’s highest legal branch appointed a new judge to preside over the case of the Fort Hood shooting suspect, indicating the court-martial is on track to move forward after lengthy delays.

U.S. Army Col. Tara Osborn was named Tuesday to head the case of Maj. Nidal Hasan, who faces the death penalty if convicted in the 2009 shootings that killed 13 and wounded more than two dozen on the Texas Army post.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces on Monday ousted the previous judge, Col. Gregory Gross, saying he appeared biased against Hasan. The court also tossed out Gross’ order to have Hasan’s beard forcibly shaved before his court-martial, though it didn’t rule on whether the order violated his religious rights as he claimed.

Well, why should he be required to follow military regulations just because he joined the, um, military? After all, his superiors looked the other way while he called for jihad. Why would they bother to enforce their own standards of grooming?

If you think it’s racist to assume Nidal Hasan was motivated by Islam just because it’s obvious, and that’s why he shouldn’t be forced to shave the beard he grew because Allah told him to, #YouMightBeALiberal.
