Comment of the Day: Keep Government Out of Religion

by

comment
Today's comment comes in response to a post today on Congressmen Todd Akin's (R - Town & Country) attempt to stop Navy chaplains from performing same-sex marriages now that the miltary's Don't Ask Don't Tell has been repealed.

Reader "the REAL kitty" responds:
one minute, Conservatives are all about religion in the government (Ten Commandments in court, prayer in schools), the next, they want to try to outlaw certain religious ceremonies in the Navy. Let each faith decide their feeling on same-sex marriage, and remember that a chaplain is a chaplain first and a federal employee second.
