Welcome back this week House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
Pushed back at a Republican proposal reinforcing the right of military chaplains to steer clear of gay marriages.
Calling it quote fraud so is the Obama administration just regarding religious liberties.
On this topic let's bring in -- is -- contributor while other Jonathan -- -- joining us now.
Is this how -- where are we on this Ari are you allowed to step.
Aside if this counteract.
We view our principles and that your -- -- them let me just be very clear here.
Was not saying that chaplin's.
In the military must do gay marriages she was not saying that what she said was.
That there is no need to put this.
-- in the bill right now right to -- this protection of chaplains she says it's a fabricated crisis now.
The other side of the stored the other said the story is at there is good reason.
Now that I don't ask and Don't Ask Don't Tell.
Policy has been repealed there is good reason fort Chaplin -- -- I called up to chaplains a Protestant chaplain and in a Catholic.
Chaplin I said is there reason to be concerned that someday you might be required.
Both of them said yes there is reason to be concerned why because these are not just.
But myself -- -- -- priests in the church who answers to his bishop but rather these are military chaplains who are under the line of command.
And so if -- see if there -- if -- said if they're told these are your duty is and they say actually I'm not going to do this gay marriage then maybe they wouldn't.
They told you must do it but they're gonna they're going to be looked down upon by their military superiors so there's good reason I think to be concerned.
And whether it's in this piece of legislation or another one.
I think we have to watch out because not a manufactured controversy -- I don't think it is I don't think it is but I just want to be cleared that Nancy close -- is not saying.
Chaplains must do gay marriage is now.
But it we have not faced a similar situation yet this -- is there anything else that would lead you to believe you would be forced to do well I think it's the history of the Obama administration right now.
I'm in reference to the First Amendment right.
And in recognizing the religious liberty and recognizing the fact that a government cannot force someone to act against her conscience and it and if they're willing to break -- one level.
Why wouldn't they be willing to break it in the military for instance with the contraceptives.
Mandate in the health care bill you know somewhat Alison another topic you'd be happened last night I spoke at the Italian.
And I haven't figured out wide they would invite.
It Morse the speed I -- today than all you maybe it's because I live in little literally.
But getting a great time last night all not just in the -- -- -- you ate well you know what that's why I accepted the that's all he's done it ever had good reason to be a high out of -- that's right I thought of you thanks -- you know on another project coming up.
