Pentagon violates DOMA, allows chaplains to perform same-sex weddings - on military bases!

The Pentagon has decided that military chaplains will be allowed to perform same-sex unions on military installations. This is despite the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act which defines marriage for federal purposes as the union of one man and one woman.
This decision clearly violates the spirit of DOMA, since the result will be that federal employees and facilities funded by American taxpayers will be used to perform ceremonies that are prohibited from any kind legal recognition under federal law.
This is just more example of our military leaders caving in to the homosexual agenda. While conservative chaplains aren't being forced to perform same-sex marriages yet, it will only be a matter of time before they are tagged as "intolerant" for refusing to do so and forced to choose between their values and a career in the military.
According to the Constitution, Congress has authority to "make rules" for the military.
Urge your congressional delegation today to enact legislation prohibiting chaplains from performing same-sex weddings on military installations.
