Video Pick of the Day

From Family Research Council

Do Ask, We'll Tell!

Check out today's video clip with ADF Attorney Austin Nimocks for his take on how this repeal would silence Christians in all walks of military life.

Q: How will overturning this law affect military chaplains and other service members with faith-based convictions?

As Bob Maginnis points out in FRC's Mission Compromised booklet, introducing open homosexuals into the military would seriously impact chaplains. They may be censored from speaking against homosexual behavior in chapels or counsel a service member confused about his sexuality to abstain from homosexual conduct. What's more, they could face increased pressure to marry same-sex couples. These threats to religious liberty would make chaplains who stick by their convictions vulnerable, and some of them might choose leave the military altogether.
