Remember How the Navy said it will perform Same Sex marriages? What do you think of this?

I believe yesterday it was said, the Navy was putting the "cart before the horse"... Would you agree?

 

 

The Navy has abruptly reversed its decision to allow chaplains to perform same-sex marriages once the military’s ban on openly gay service members is lifted, after dozens of House lawmakers complained.

Rear Adm. Mark Tidd, chief of Navy chaplains, issued a one-sentence memo Tuesday announcing that the earlier decision has been “suspended until further notice pending additional legal and policy review and inter-Departmental coordination.”...

....A senior Navy official told Fox News the legal counsel determined the suspension would be necessary “until broader legal and policy questions are answered.

Do you agree that there are other issues to figure out before they make this kind of step?

  • I would much rather they figure out what could be lengthy and costly legal issues BEFORE coming out and making statements that they will perform SSM....

  • As you can see from observing Canada, when we legally started letting everyone, not just heterosexuals, marry federally in 2005, society went to hell in a handbasket. People are now eating each other in the quite literal sense, there are somehow 7.2 abortions per year for every man, woman and child in the country, and toasters have been demanding the right to marry microwaves. So it's only natural of course that the U.S. military would be wary of such a drastic step as allowing equality to all people regardless of sexuality.

  • Government needs to stay out of marriage, it should be up to the states and churches.

    Great Idea...  Ya know what~When you call and write them, ask them how SSM families will PCS to non SSM states and countries? Will the military pay for the family move to a non SSM state/nation? Will SSM families be given preferential PCS treatment? See, these (and many other issues) need to be worked out....Or better yet, given your experience with military, why don't you explain to us how PCS's will work when SSM families move to non SSM states/nations...  Just remember~CART before the Horse...

  • I heard that last night and thought " didn't they just say they were going to do it"? LOL Maybe Obama just told them to DO it. You know how he doesn't give a flip about the legal fine print. As with anything they need to make sure it's legal or it's a bigger mess. You can bet your booties they will have law suits galore as it is.
