Boo! Navy Suspends Chaplains Ability To Perform Gay Marriage

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikBarack Obama

Uss of BS

Just days A DAY after it was announced that the U.S. Navy would allow chaplains to perform same-sex marriages on bases located in states where same-sex marriage is legal, the Navy has revoked those privileges rights.

A memo, issued by the Chief of Chaplains Rear Admiral Mark L. Tidd, read:

"My memorandum of 13 April 2011 is hereby suspended until further notice pending additional legal and policy review and inter-Departmental coordination."

The suspension of the memo written almost a month ago happened on Tuesday after some serious Buzz Killingtons cried to their mommies government, insisting same-sex marriage would violate laws prohibiting federal recognition of gay marriage equal rights.

Fortunately, military officials said the US Defense Department might STILL permit gay troops to marry in military chapels in states that recognize homosexual marriages after President Barack Obama lifts the "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

We're keeping hope alive and our fingers crossed that these conservative negative nancies don't let their bullshizz get in the way of equality for those who put their lives on the line for our country.

    Marriage is NOT a right, it's a privilege. That's why a license is needed. Gay marriage will NEVER happen.

    Ugh at least it got delayed for a bit… makes me sick to think that the word chaplain and "gay marriage" even go hand in hand. Sick.

    Good. The military is already a piece of shit for killing an unarmed man, we don't need gays making it worse.

    You are so impatient, Perez. You can't just dump a policy and make things work immediately without ensuring that all members of the military on trained up on it (units are still being trained up on the policy changes) and know what their rights are. Without educating those who will be affected by the new law, it will have dire consequences on unit cohesion and command morale. It's not about conservatives being negative nancies- it's about implementing it effectively. You seriously need to stick to covering entertainment and leave articles like this to people who actually do their research.

    Obama is never going to life don't ask don't tell because, if you libiots paid attention since 2008, you'd know he is against gay marriage. But you're free to wait around for something that won't happen.

    I do not see how the US Military can force one of their chaplains to perform a gay marriage. He is a chaplain. A Christian man of the cloth. There is a good chance it is going to go against HIS religious "rights" and beliefs. You are getting into a whole different thing once you start treading into that. Just like the government can't for all churches to allow gay marriages ceremonies under their roof just because it is in a state that allows gay marriage. Now whether or not the Navy has notaries or whatnot on base that can perform gay marriages may be a different story. But a chaplain, that needs to be up to the chaplain. I know you are all for equality, Mario, but you have to be realistic about this.

    Marriage is only a man made word to manipulate the masses.

    Aren't all words man made?

    Re: icefire227 – "Unarmed" man? Are you kidding?!! You insult our military. I.am glad they took that evil psycho terrorist out and saved us 10 years of legal fees and tax dollars on that nut job. If that psycho had weapons he would have used them so no sympathy here. Equal rights fine but don't tread on religion and churches. Separation of church and state.

    Marriage is NOT a right, it's a privilege. Marriage is NOT a right, it's a privilege. Marriage is NOT a right, it's a privilege. Marriage is NOT a right, it's a privilege. Marriage is NOT a right, it's a privilege. Marriage is NOT a right, it's a privilege. Marriage is NOT a right, it's a privilege. Marriage is NOT a right, it's a privilege. Marriage is NOT a right, it's a privilege. Marriage is NOT a right, it's a privilege.

    Re: icefire227 – ACTUALLY if you did YOUR research he DID have a semi-automatic weapon that he fired at the seals prior to him being killed. Do some research before you open your mouth.
