Under Congressional Pressure, Navy Shelves Plan for Queer Marriages

Don’t you worry your pretty little head none; I’m sure Obama will implement another one of his backdoor solutions in the near future:

Navy halts move to allow gay unions by chaplains

May 11, 2011 – By LOLITA C. BALDOR

WASHINGTON (AP) – Under pressure from more than five dozen House lawmakers, the Navy late Tuesday abruptly reversed its decision that would have allowed chaplains to perform same-sex unions if the Pentagon decides to recognize openly gay military service later this year.

In a one-sentence memo obtained by The Associated Press, Rear Adm. Mark Tidd, chief of Navy chaplains, said his earlier decision has been “suspended until further notice pending additional legal and policy review and interdepartmental coordination.”

The Navy said its lawyers wanted to do a more thorough review of the legal decision that allowed Navy chaplains to receive training to perform civil unions on military bases, but only in states where same-sex unions are legal.

[…]

House members wrote to Navy Secretary Ray Mabus to object to the Navy’s initial ruling, saying the service was violating the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act by appearing to recognize and support same-sex marriages.

[…]

“We find it unconscionable that the United States Navy, a federal entity sworn to preserve and protect the Constitution of the United States, believes it is their place alone to train and direct service members to violate federal law,” said the lawmakers’ letter, which was signed by 63 House members.

The lawmakers asked Mabus to direct the Navy to defend the Constitution, adding that individuals should not be allowed to pick and choose the laws they will follow.

[…]

The military dust-up comes against the backdrop of the Obama administration’s decision in February to no longer defend the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act. Attorney General Eric Holder said at the time that President Barack Obama concluded that the law was unconstitutional.

    I suppose your head has to be on a swivel to keep up with the Navy. One day they are giving bin laden islamic death rites the next minute they are trying to marry queers. WTH?

  2. tgusa Says:

    Why is it always a Rear Admiral that does this sort of stuff?
    Because the Vice Admiral is busy at the whorehouse.

    All of G-d’s rules are under attack by the world system. Homos getting married, spoiling the child in school, children not respecting their elders, sex outside of wedlock, children born to unwed Mother’s, murdering children,(abortion), also called Moloch worship, talking to spirits using cards or boards, etc…

    I do not judge anyone, but the above are sins, and one must repent, or we as a nation will/already are at the times of Noah.

    The 60’s, and 70’s have brought the destruction of America to a country worshiping the creation, and not the Creator. I repent every day in Christ’s name as I am guilty too.

      Well, while you’re at it, don’t forget the biblical rule that we shouldn’t touch pigskin or that women who help their husbands and seize the privates of a man attacking him must have their hand chopped off.

      Yes, this world is going to hell in a wastebasket, and you can blame the Redskins for it. Personally, I blame the Redskins for everything, so it works out alright.


      • Roger,

        “So the [Mosaic] law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith. Now that this faith [Christ] has come, we are no longer under a guardian.” – Galatians 3:24-25 (NIV)

        Now, for your ignorance while trying to stir up trouble, go do three Hail Marys and two Rosaries…my son.

        Cheers
