Gary McCaleb: No Rights of Conscience for Military Chaplains?
Gary McCaleb at Townhall: 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 . . . in the months since the repeal, it turns out the concerns were well-founded.
