Hall, currently stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas, continues to receive threats over the lawsuit he brought to stop the religious discrimination he was facing in the Army.
Hall says he faces the animosity because he is an atheist and is suing the Department of Defense. He alleges it permits a culture that pushes fundamentalist Christianity.It seems like the men and women serving in America's armed forces should be able to focus on the many dangers they face in combat without having to worry about being harmed by their fellow soldiers simply because they do not share a popular religious delusion. I applaud Hall's bravery in speaking out against the infusion of evangelical Christianity in the military. I sincerely hope that he does not have to pay for this stand with his life.
He says he does not feel safe his unit.
