Military Chaplains Permitted To Perform Same-Sex Unions

Following the recent repeal of DADT, the Pentagon announced on Friday that it would permit military chaplains to perform same-sex unions, whether on or off a military installation. The military will not require chaplains to do so if it would conflict with his or her religious or personal beliefs.

Some in Congress have argued that allowing military chaplains to perform such services would violate the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act.

The ruling is sure to spark a new round of debate amongst the GOP candidates.
