The lifting of the 1993 law barring open homosexuals from military service is only being discussed, yet the Pentagon is taking iron-fisted action against those who speak publicly in support of the law. This, plus the military’s zero-tolerance diversity policy, is raising important issues about the future of religious liberty and the chaplain corps in the military. As a result of that concern, 40 retired military chaplains sent a letter to President Obama and Defense Secretary Gates opposing the lifting of the law barring homosexuals from military service.
