Do these new "relaxed" rules allow for men to "marry" 10 year old girls?  Does it allow for "honor" killings?  Will it require booze to be taken out of base stores because it offends a religion?  Will the troops be allowed to rape goats as long as it is done by religious standards?
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

We used to play these games when I was on active duty all the time.  There is always someone who has to be different...has to wear sunglasses all the time so you cannot see their eyes...someone who has "dereticulitis" and is therefore not required to shave...those who must have odd and/or offensive tattoos visible and in your face...there are endless examples of people who choose to exercise their freedoms by being on the very cutting edge of acceptability and by challenging every single rule or regulation they run into.

Besides, with Chuck Hagel in charge at the Pentagon, the last priority is the morale of the force.
