Church/state Separation Group on Obama's Army Nominee
By William Wan
Americans United for Separation of Church and State is raising questions about U.S. Rep. John M. McHugh, who has been nominated by Obama to be the new Secretary of the Army. Confirmation hearings begin today.
The group laid out its grievances in a letter sent to the Senate Armed Services Committee. The group takes issue with McHugh on topics like prayer in public schools, public displays of the Ten Commandments, religion in the military. More in their press release.
American Prospect also examines McHugh's record on church-state issues in an article.
