FFRF tells U.S. Army to quit mowing Catholic Charities’ lawns (July 17, 2012)

The Freedom From Religion Foundation has stopped a violation in which soldiers were being forced to mow Catholic Charities’ lawn.

FFRF Staff Attorney Andrew Seidel drafted and sent a letter on July 5 on behalf of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, and also signed by American Atheists, objecting to using U.S. soldiers to support Catholic Social Services of Augusta. The Regimental Noncommissioned Officer Academy’s Advanced Leader Course (ALC) at Fort Gordon, Ga., ordered soldiers to “provide area beautification support to the Catholic Social Services.”

FFRF’s complainant has assured Seidel that the “program with Catholic Social Services has ceased.”
