Chaplains barred from same-sex vows

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Southern Baptist Convention, which provides the largest share of active-duty military chaplains, has barred members from taking part in weddings, counseling sessions, and couples retreats for same-sex couples.

The North American Mission Board, an arm of the Nashville-based convention, also prohibits chaplains from participating in any services that would appear to endorse or accept same-sex unions.
