Penny Nance on the Pentagon Deciding to Allow Chaplains to Officiate Same-Sex Marriages

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

“The Pentagon has clearly overstepped its bounds by declaring military chaplains can perform same-sex marriages. As part of the federal government, the Defense Department must abide by federal law including the Defense of Marriage Act, which permits marriage only between one man and one woman. The Defense of Marriage Act was passed by overwhelming bipartisan majorities in both houses of Congress and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton. Concerned Women for America’s (CWA) deep concern that the Obama Administration’s repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” would be a back door to nationalizing same-sex marriage is now confirmed. Voters in 31 out of 31 states, including liberal states such as California, Maine, Oregon and Hawaii have voted to keep marriage between one man and one woman. Members of Congress need to take swift action to defend federal law, uphold the Defense of Marriage Act and keep traditional marriage sacred in this country in spite of the Obama administration’s political pandering and social engineering.”
