Ohio Pastors Defend Police Chaplaincy

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.9 | Relevance 4.8

A group of 76 Ohio Pastors defended the Mansfield, Ohio Police Chaplaincy program after the Freedom of Religion Foundation (FFRF) filed suit claiming it was unconstitional. In a letter to the Mansfield mayor, police chief and city law director, the group said “It appears the FFRF wants a government employer to discriminate against a job applicant/employee in the workplace by firing him because of his religion, thus violating the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964,” they continued. “We believe this would be bad legal advice.”
