No Rights of Conscience for Military Chaplains?

Evidently, Christians lying on a vulnerable group is a value. JayWye, you're a liar. There is no proven evidence that homosexuality is anything you say it is. I just told you yesterday that homosexuality doesn't render a person altered, incompetent, or anti social. There is NO rational reason NOT to accommodate gay people. As has been PROVEN, they ARE responsible, law abiding tax paying citizens. And THAT is what should be enabled, it's not homosexuality that is so much, but respecting the contributions gay people make regardless of being gay. So yeah, we all can encourage that.

When President Obama prepared to repeal the “don’t ask don’t tell” policy in July 2011, defenders of marriage and religious freedom warned that the repeal would open Pandora’s Box. Military chaplains even sought congressional action to protect their rights of conscience.

The predominant concern was that the President’s actions would usher in attempts to redefine marriage on military installations, which would, in turn, force chaplains to perform the ceremonies for same-sex couples in uniform.

As one might expect, the people who voiced these concerns were mocked the way Orville and Wilbur Wright were mocked for believing men could fly....
