The House Armed Services Personnel Subcommittee will be holding a hearing on September 19, 2014 to address the current status of religious liberty and accommodation within the military. The Forum was asked to make comments to be included in the record. The Forum provided a letter to the committee which addressed two separate issues. The first was the apparent conflict between instructions from some endorsers to their chaplains regarding limitations on providing support for married gay and lesbian military couples, and the duty of all chaplains to “perform or provide.” In support of our position, an article written by Forum members, retired Army chaplains and Colonels, Herm Keizer and Paul Dodd was attached, and made part of the Congressional record. The second issue was our support for humanist chaplains. We included a letter sent earlier in the year to the Secretary of Defense setting forth our concerns and recommendations.
