Atheist in a foxhole

An enlisted man has sued the U.S. Army for religious discrimination. He's being harassed because he's an atheist. It takes a lot of guts to do this. As his lawyer notes,
"The average American doesn't have enough intestinal fortitude to tell someone to shut up if they are talking in a movie theater," ... "You know how hard it is to take on your chain of command? This isn't the shift manager at KFC."
There is a lot of illegal discrimination and harassment (religious, sexual, racial) that goes on that never makes it to the courts or even to HR. I'm glad that this guy is standing up for his rights, since so many of us don't. (via)
