The former opinion editor of The Washington Times has filed a religious discrimination complaint against the paper.
Richard Miniter says the company president "coerced" him into attending a Unification Church event in 2008 that included a mass wedding. He says the company launched a background investigation into him earlier this year after he made a joke about the church to a co-worker.
The Times was founded by the leader of the Unification Church, the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, in 1982.
