Army Sued for Forcing Christian Religious Beliefs On Personnel

An atheist soldier sued Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Thursday, alleging he was forced to participate in public prayers and that the military systematically violates the religious freedoms of its personnel.

Spc. Dustin Chalker, who has served in Korea and Iraq, is the second soldier at the northeast Kansas post to file such a lawsuit. The New Mexico-based Military Religious Freedom Foundation joined Chalker as a plaintiff in his lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kan.

Weinstein called the alleged violations of military personnel’s religious freedom “a rape of the Constitution. It’s at least as terrible as what we’re fighting overseas.”
