At the behest of retired Captain Timothy Hunter, Catholic League president William Donohue wrote a letter to Congressman Frank Wolf regarding the status of religious rights for uniformed personnel overseas; Rep. Wolf is Chairman of the Foreign Operations Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives Appropriations Committee. At issue is the apparent negligence of the U.S. State Department to protect the religious rights of G.I.’s serving overseas, particularly in places like Saudi Arabia. Donohue asked Rep. Wolf to “take whatever measures might be necessary to ensure that the religious rights of American men and women in uniform overseas are respected.”
