Chaplains and DADT

Once again, chaplains are at  the center of the debate on DADT with a proposed measure intended to forbig military chaplains from performing same-sex marriages.  The AP reports:

“The House also voted to slow repeal of the policy allowing gays to serve openly in the military, backing an amendment to block funds for the training manual for the Chaplain Corps on ending the so-called “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., sponsor of the amendment, said its purpose was to prohibit chaplains from performing same-sex marriages on Navy bases regardless of a state’s law. The House approved the measure 236-184.

The overall bill must be reconciled with a still-to-be-completed Senate version.”
