Margaret Doughty’s Application for Citizenship Approved Posted on: June 20, 2013
We heard the other day about Margaret Doughty, the 64-year-old Texas legal resident of 30 years who applied for U.S. citizenship, but noted that she has a conscientious objection to taking up arms. She was initially told that she would have to submit a letter from her church verifying their conscientious objector policy. Since she is an atheist, she is clearly unable to do so.
We could not be more thrilled with this outcome. This was a clear-cut case of discrimination because Doughty is an atheist.
It's a clear-cut case of the government asking someone to do something they clearly are not possible of doing and then withdrawing their request after they realise their mistake.

It's not about "discrimination", it's more they have to withdraw their standard requests....as is the case with my disabled wife and DHS....
