    The Senate passed a defense bill with strong bipartisan support last week that includes important language to strengthen and protect the religious freedom of military members and chaplains.

    The 2014 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) includes the standard provisions for funding the military as well as amendments that expand the protection of military members' religious freedoms, including their personal beliefs, actions, and speech. Specific language in the NDAA protects the freedom of military chaplains to "close a prayer outside of a religious service according to the traditions, expressions, and religious exercises of the endorsing faith group."

    So are we ready for a Muslim chaplain to pray in the name of alllaha at a non-religious event?
