    on so many levels.  Unless you believe in a deity and your fellow believers have decided that deity opposes war, American citizens are required to take up arms if asked by their government.

    This isn't just about this woman, it is about every American atheist that opposes war and killing simply because it is wrong.  It is the government saying that morals and thus moral objections can only come from religion.  It imposes a religious requirement on a class of American citizens (Conscientious Objectors) and if that isn't unconstitutional, then I don't know what it.
