By implementing a Chaplin, congress is not making an establishment of A religion, they are making an establishment of religion. Establishing a religious activity (Chaplin services) is making an establishment of religion.
I notice some of you think I am talking about freedom FROM religion. I have not made this statement. I am simply saying that a person cannot enjoy true free e xercise of religion if the state is mandating religion. When the state stays neutral in religious matters, everyone is ensured the right to free exercise of religion. By implementing a Chaplin, congress is breaking that neutrality.
