Faith Matters in Maine – September 20, 2012

September 19, 2012 No Comments by admin

September marks the one-year anniversary of President  Obama’s repeal of “Don’t ask, Don’t Tell,” allowing homosexuals to serve openly  in the U.S.
armed forces.

The past year has seen several negative consequences as a  result of the repeal including chaplains being threatened with early retirement  and forced resignation for non-compliance, and so-called “same-sex” marriages  being conducted in military chapels.  One  such ceremony was held on a base in Louisiana  where their Constitution defines marriage as the union of one man and one  woman.

According to Col.  Ron Crews, Executive Director of the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty,  “This is the anniversary of the Department of Defense using our military to  promote a very radical agenda.  It’s not  a time to celebrate.  It’s a time to mourn.”
