Atheist sues chaplain

The most interesting paragraph to me is this: "Barker may face a difficult time getting a court to rule in his favor, said Robert A. Destro, director of the law and religion program at the Columbus School of Law at Catholic University, because Congress has wide latitude under the Constitution to determine how it operates."

However,  atheism is the fastest growing religion in America.  They demand more attention than LGBTs and stir up as much trouble as Al Sharpton. Although I  think a chaplain in Congress is about as useful as jpegs to Helen Keller,  is this really a major issue for them?

Barker claims that approximately 40 percent of the daily prayers on the House floor were delivered by guest chaplains between 2000 and 2015. None of the 857 guest chaplains during that time were atheists, according to the lawsuit.

Isn't atheist chaplain an oxymoron?
And don't have anything better to do with their time like maybe educate themselves on Islam?
I'm surprised the atheist activist organization The Satanic Temple (another oxymoron) isn't all over this.
