Should Military Chaplains Be Forced To Officiate Same Sex Weddings?

Military chaplains should indeed be forced to perform marriage services for homosexual soldiers. For nearly two decades, gay soldiers were forced to obey DADT or be discharged.

House Republicans Pass ‘Let Women Die’ Bill

It’s a bill that callously allows hospitals to leave pregnant women to die rather than perform an abortion procedure that could save her life. It’s a death sentence for any woman, even a woman who happens to be pro-life like Rick Santorum’s wife, who would be dead right now if her doctor had refused to perform the life-saving abortion that allows her to be with her husband and children today.
