Chaplains sue Veterans Administration

Head of education program forced out chaplains after mocking them

The following comes from a Nov. 8 press release from Military-Veterans Advocacy.

A lawsuit filed Friday alleges that the leader of a San Diego-based Department of Veterans Affairs chaplain training program severely mocked two Christian participants because of their faith. One of the chaplains eventually left the program voluntarily because of the treatment; the program leader eventually ejected the other participant.

Military-Veterans Advocacy filed the suit against Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki on behalf of the Conservative Baptist Association of America, the organization that acted as an endorsing agent for the two chaplains.
