    •  Thanks, but that doesn't give the answer. (0+ / 0-)

      From that wiki link:

      The mission of the Chaplain Corps is:

      PROVIDE religious ministry and support to those of our own faith.

      FACILITATE for all religious beliefs.

      CARE for all Marines, Sailors and their family and friends.

      ADVISE commanders to ensure the free exercise of religion...

      The guiding principles are:

      We are faithful to our individual religious traditions and practices.

      We respect the right of others to hold spiritual beliefs and religious practices different from our own

      We cooperate and collaborate in ministry.

      The marriage question pits some of those values against others. The wiki article doesn't give any examples of how similar conflicts are already handled.

          From that article, it seems that military chaplains can already refuse to perform same-sex marriages.

          Why the fuss over a law that would just restate the current rule? Seems like the proper response to that is, "Meh."
