Atheists Want Albuquerque to Get Rid of Chaplains

Ad Feedback

The quest to remove God and prayer from government continues nationwide.

In New Mexico, the Freedom From Religion Foundation wants the Albuquerque Police Department to get rid of its chaplain's unit.  The group says it is unconstitutional and discriminates against those with no religion.

The atheist group have asked the mayor's office to get rid of the chaplain's unit.
Albuquerque Police Department officials said they wanted to see the group's request before responding.

Meanwhile in Virginia, members of the Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors are fighting a ruling that bars them from opening meetings with prayer. The ruling is part of a 2011 lawsuit filed by the American Civil Rights Union.

The board will ask an appeals court to put a hold on the ruling until the U.S. Supreme Court decides a similar case in New York.
