God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

This gives me a bad feeling...

Here's the story: US: military chaplains may perform same-sex unions

So what happens when "Steve & Dave" show up for counseling and the only chaplain available cites religious beliefs against doing anything to help them keep their union intact? Not all denominations are represented on every military base. During the few years I spent as a Pentecostal I tried starting Bible study classes on the nearby base. I wound up talking to a chaplain who was Southern Baptist because there were no Pentecostal chaplains at that facility.

So the couple I mentioned may get married by a chaplain associated with the First Church of I'm-Okay-You're-Okay-And-Jesus-Is-Our-Palsywalsy, then get transferred to a spot where the Chaplain Corp is represented by a Catholic and a Southern Baptist. Wedded bliss hits the shitcan, they want counseling and the scenario I mentioned takes place.

I see a real possibility of legal action, and before anyone reminds me that service members can't sue the military I'll just state that spouses and family members can do that AND complain to their Congressional Representatives. So if that Rep. should be Barney Frank, just how sympathetic a hearing will the military get?

How long before ALL chaplains are instructed to provide services for ALL couples, regardless of any religious beliefs that are violated?

In answer to your question: Oh, sometime between now and 1/20/13, most likely within the next six months.

Saw a picture floating around the 'Net that purported to be a real billboard: "Will everyone that voted Democrat in '08 to prove you're not a racist please vote Republican in '12 to prove you're not stupid?"

Anthony, I wonder if you're being an optimist.

I believe, although I have nothing at the moment to back it up, that it already started when "Don't ask, Don't tell" went into the garbage bin.

MRG, you're probably right.
