Chaplains Must Not be Forced to Perform Same-Sex Marriages

The religious freedom of military chaplains is once again under attack. President Obama, the Commander-in-Chief, has endorsed same-sex marriage and repealed Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Military chaplains may now be forced to perform same-sex marriage ceremonies in violation of their religious beliefs.

The ACLJ is on the front lines, working with Members of Congress, fighting to protect the conscience rights of all Americans, especially those who serve our Armed Forces. A critical religious liberty measure has already passed the House of Representatives. Sign our petition urging the Senate to pass these conscience protections for our military.

Petition to Protect Religious Freedom of Military Chaplains

To: The United States Senate

Military chaplains’ ability to minister to our servicemen and women is closely tied to their freedom to operate according to the tenets of their faith. Military chaplains must be free to exercise their faith and not be required to violate their religious beliefs by performing same-sex marriage ceremonies. Please immediately pass the amendment protecting chaplains’ conscience rights.

A Study in Slanted Legal Argumentation

By Walter M. Weber1462558800529

Prof. Leslie C. Griffin of the UNLV Boyd School of Law wrote an article for a SCOTUSblog symposium on the Little Sisters of the Poor case currently before the Supreme Court. Prof. Griffin’s article is a classic example of propaganda masquerading as legal argument. It may be helpful to fully dissect...
