DADT Repeal Training: "chaplains will be free to express their views on homosexuality"


Accommodation of same-sex activity in the military is ongoing with training underway in all services and among deployed troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Materials cover such issues as what an officer should do or not do if he sees same-sex kissing in a public place during off-duty hours between military personnel.

The news item in The Washington Times, "Military indoctrinated on gays kissing, behavior", addresses the effect on chaplain exercise of religious freedom:

"The main slide presentations emphasize that chaplains will be free to express their views on homosexuality.

“ 'Free exercise of religious expression, with law and policy, remains unchanged,' says one Army slide."
