No So-Called “Same-Sex Marriages” On Naval Bases
Read here on the National Catholic Register about the vote of the US Congress regarding the ban of the celebration of so-called same-sex marriages in naval bases on the ground that it violate the federal Defence of Marriage Act.
This amendment removes (for the time being) the possibility that a military chaplain may find himself threatened in his religious liberty (because, say, obliged to either perform the “ceremony” or find a substitute for its celebration) and the resulting predictable exodus of military chaplains (Catholics, but not only) from the US Navy. In addition, it reinforces the federal law that defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman.
The US Congress has now a republican majority of course, but this vote is said to have been bipartisan.
The battle against the modern parody of reality called “same-sex marriage” has just begun; if the Christians in the US wake up and smell the coffee, it can have only one outcome.
For the moment though, and at least in the US Navy, “Loretta” will have to wait.
