A soldier who served two tours in Iraq said he was discriminated against because he’s an atheist. Specialist Jeremy Hall told CNN’s Randi Kaye that his life was threatened and was assigned a full-time bodyguard after he revealed he was an atheist.

Hall said that the military has become a “Christian organization” and is suing for religious freedom.
