Under pressure from House lawmakers, the Navy has abruptly reversed it’s decision that would have allowed chaplains to perform same-sex unions if the Pentagon decides to recognize openly gay military service later this year. The Navy said its lawyers want to do a more thorough review of the legal decision that allowed Navy Chaplains to receive training to perform civil unions on military bases, but only in states where gay marriage is legal.
- The decision is being condemned by the majority of Rear Admirals.
- If allowed, the ceremony will be performed on a dingy.
- Ship Captains will now yell, “All Hands on Deck… And OFF each other!”
