Police Officer Masood Syed is fighting the NYPD's policy regarding facial hair not being longer than one millimeter. The reason for the policy? Beards longer than that would prevent department-issued gas masks from sealing properly.
Syed argues the policy is against his religion. Religious zealots of all kinds believe their "god" is more concerned about facial hair and whether an animal was killed properly than child molestation and honor killings. Really?
I must admit I too was once a believer, but then I realized it was my parents bringing me gifts, not Santa!
