US Christian soldier with “Muslim” name harassed, considered suicide

What happens when someone who isn’t a Muslim gets harassed over their Muslim name?

Yesterday, the AP reported about a US Army sergeant who, because of her name, was harassed by fellow soldiers who thought she was Muslim. She filed complaints with her superiors but said, "Any time I would say something about it I was treated like I didn't know what I was talking about or that I'm an idiot or that I was a Muslim sympathizer.”

The Army won’t comment on the case and the Army’s lawyers won’t comment on the case. Take a few minutes to read the story on The Huffington Post and leave us your comments below.
