Frothy Mix Lies At Hate Convention
Former Sen. Rick Santorum today told the Values Voter Summit audience that the president has ordered military clergy to perform same-sex marriages. Zack Ford provides the actual directive at Think Progress:
A military chaplain may participate in or officiate any private ceremony, whether on or off a military installation, provided that the ceremony is not prohibited by applicable state and local law. Further, a chaplain is not required to participate in or officiate a private ceremony if doing so would be in variance with the tenets of his or her religion or personal beliefs. Finally, a military chaplain’s participation in a private ceremony does not constitute an endorsement of the ceremony by DoD.
