Southern Baptist Military Chaplains will not be allowed to perform, attend or support same-sex marriages even if the ceremonies are held away from military installations.
That is according to new guidelines released by the North American Mission Board (NAMB). The new rules come after the Department of Defense extended the full range of health and financial benefits to married same-sex partners following the Supreme Court’s over-turning of the Defense of Marriage Act.
Chaplains that violate the NAMB guidelines could have their affiliation revoked.
