In certain contexts, government is permitted to make reasonable accommodations for citizens’ religious needs. Prisons may hire chaplains for inmates. The military, which often removes service members from their home communities for posting elsewhere, has an extensive network of chaplains. In these cases, government must take steps to ensure that all citizens are treated equally and that rights are respected. Military chaplains, for example, should focus on providing requested religious activities and not engage in unwanted proselytizing.
