Army Maj. David Bigelow responds to continuing debate on Barry Fagin and Lt. Col. James Parco’s article “A Question of Faith,” January AFJ

(http://www.armedforcesjournal.com/2008/03/3409959)

I fight for the ideal of individual freedom that the founding fathers of America sought to promote through our Constitution. This includes both the protections of an individual’s right to personal belief (Amendment I) and the separation of church and state (via Article VI, Amendment I.) Thus, I fight for your right to believe as you choose, but I expect the same in return. This is what it means to be tolerant. When I took my oath, it was with the fantastic ideals of this document in mind.”
