Honor guardsman is fired for blessings

A lot of people are going to look at this and see it as evidence of the lunacy of the separation of church and state. I do not. I see it as evidence of the lunacy of bureaucracy.

At a tiny micro level, the supervisor might have been offended at the mention of God, or he may have thought he was just playing CYA. He might have had a personal problem and wanted an excuse. That is the lunacy of bureaucracy.

The goal of bureaucracy is for there to be so many rules that the bureaucrat can select which rules he chooses to enforce, and which ones he chooses to ignore. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the essence of tyranny.
