Religious laws & church-state separation


Religious bigotry & church/state
issues by the U.S. Federal Gov.

Sponsored link.


We have found four instances in recent years where the U.S. government has officially engaged in religious discrimination. This has sometimes taken the form of discrimination against religion in general. More frequently, it is either bigotry against a minority religion or special support for a specific faith group or groups.

Topics included in this section:

bullet Introduction to government discrimination
bullet Air Force Academy: Problems with intolerance remain 4 years later
bullet Veterans' Administration: Denial of grave markers
bullet Chaplain service: Expulsion of a Wiccan priest
bullet Bureau of Prisons: Removal of religious books from prison libraries
