How does everyone feel about the loss of military hospitals, when stories like this come up?

Yes I agree that our troops should be able to be treated in privacy without the threat of such treatment and abuse, and at the same time I hope that the offender was prosecuted but there is also the fact that in our great brother country over the water there are millions of christian fundamentalists who see it as their god given right to wage holy war against the Muslim religion. At the same time, it is only fair to say that the majority of Muslims and Chrisitans and Jews etc are all decent, law abiding people - In Western Europe and America, but that a vociferous and misguided minority act like *********, piss the rest of us off and give their religion a bad name.

Religious rights are enshrined in both European and International law and therefore have special legal status. All religions have the right to, for example, manifest, their beliefs.

This includes lecturing servicemen who have killed co-religionists - just as Christians and Jews have the same entitlement but grounded upon a different theological criterion.
