Call to protect religious freedom

The U.S. military should protect minority faiths within its ranks, said a California congresswoman at a Capitol Hill symposium on religion in the military.

"Government has a duty to protect religious freedoms ... and not to allow them to be trampled on, anywhere," said Lois Capps, D-Calif. "Diversity is a hallmark of our society."

The same day, The Washington Post told the story about a Muslim soldier who has filed more than 20 complaints alleging religion-based harassment.

Unfortunately, muslims and other non-christians use our Freedom of Religion against us....there is a big push to keep Military Chaplains from praying in Jesus' name...EVER.  If Christians are not allowed to pray in Jesus' name, then OUR freedom of religion is being trampled.
