DOCUMENT INFO
Description: In a Dec. 29 complaint to Secretary of the Army John McHugh, the Freedom From Religion Foundation said the U.S. Army has no business subjecting military troops to a mandatory "spiritual fitness" assessment. FFRF, which has many members who are "foxhole atheists," asked the Army to immediately stop the evaluation that's part of a program called Comprehensive Soldier Fitness.Nonbelieving soldiers who took the survey told FFRF diat when they answered the spiritual questions on the survey negatively, they were referred to a "spiritual fitness training program." Soldiers are evaluated by how tiiey rank statements on a spectrum from "not like me at all" to "very much like me." The spiritual statements include:Those who receive low "spiritual fitness" ratings are referred to a training program in which they are told, absurdly, that "Prayer is for all individuals." They are encouraged to use "spiritual support as your armor or batde gear" and seek out chaplain guidance, and to consider "church" and "higher power."
