A group of employees is suing the Salvation Army, accusing the group of religious discrimination. The 18 current and former employees, who include Jews, Christians and nonreligious individuals, say they were pressed to sign forms stating their church attendance and their ministers’ names and agree to the Salvation Army’s mission “to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” When they objected, some say they were harassed and eventually had to resign. The Salvation Army is a religious organization but is known for its charitable works.
