Chaplains Facing Persecution Over Dont Ask Dont Tell

07.11.12 | Sarah Harnisch

A retired Army chaplain says the Obama administration is censoring military chaplains who complain about the repeal of "Don't Ask/Don't Tell." The Pentagon claims there have been virtually no problems since the repeal of "Don't Ask Don't Tell", but Ron Cruise, who runs the Chaplain Alliance For Religious Liberty, says the Defense Department has silenced military clergymen who would report various troubles with allowing homosexuals to serve openly. Cruise says chaplains have told him "if you express difficulties as a chaplain, you are specifically ordered by your commanders that you do not speak to the press about your concern."
