Archdiocese: Catholic military chaplains will not witness same-sex weddings

October 07, 2011

Reacting to the Obama administration’s decision to permit military chaplains to conduct same-sex marriages, a spokesman for the Archdiocese for the Military Services emphasized that Catholic military chaplains will never perform such ceremonies.

“Will Catholic military chaplains perform same-sex weddings?” said archdiocese spokesman Taylor Henry. “The answer to that is no. Under no circumstances will a Catholic military chaplain perform same-sex weddings.”

Henry also said that same-sex weddings will not be permitted at the Catholic chapel at West Point.

    Isn't "same sex marriage" just another name for "Sodomy"?!

    I wonder how long it will be before Catholic chaplains are no longer welcome in the military, like Catholic Charities is no longer welcome to help children in Illinois.

    This is where following Christ's teachings will cost the Church. Hang on to your hats and pray!
