Atheist Army Spc. Jeremy Hall sues Army for religious discrimination

Good article on CNN about and atheist soldier, Army Spc. Jeremy Hall who says the military has turned into a "christian military." He was denied promotions because of being an atheist and his life was even threatened by other troops to such a degree that the army assigned him a bodyguard.

Michael Weinstein, a retired senior Air Force officer and founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, is suing along with Hall. The permeation of religion into the military is so bad that he refers to the Pentagon as the "Pentacostalgon."

Here's a very interesting analysis of public opinion as a response to watching a CNN special about this.

Here's the origional article.
