A military chaplains’ advocacy group criticized President Barack Obama earlier this week for suggesting his administration might ignore provisions of a new law that offers religious liberty protections to service members.
The protections, approved by Congress as part of the National Defense Authorization Act, guarantee chaplains will not be forced to perform “marriage” ceremonies for same-sex couples or be punished for refusing to do so.
