Vendor on Army post told to stop selling anti-Islam T-shirt
DENVER - A vendor on a Colorado Army post has been ordered to stop selling a T-shirt with an anti-Islam message after shoppers complained.
The T-shirt depicts the Statue of Liberty wearing a burqa, the all-covering dress worn by some Muslim women, with the words, "Don't let this happen America." It was being sold at a kiosk outside the Fort Carson post exchange, a retail store.
The Army and Air Force Exchange Service, which operates the exchange, said Wednesday that it ordered the vendor to stop selling the shirt because it violates rules against religious or political merchandise.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation says one of its clients complained about the shirt. The foundation advocates on religious liberty issues in the military.
Fort Carson officials didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
