There are currently on 66 religions authorized to be put on military records to indicate religious preference. The first amendment states that "...make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...". The current list of approved religions can be shown through the available emblems for gravestone markers (although morbid). https://www.cem.va.gov/cem/docs/emblems.pdf
Many religions are not included in this list.
We petition the Department of Defense to put away with the list of "authorized" religions, and let servicemen and servicewomen state whatever religion they follow.
This includes Pastafarianism, Paganism, and many more. It is impossible for a list to include everyone's beliefs, so we must do away with the list.
