Benefits to same-sex military partners rapped
Catholic News Service


The U.S. Defense Department’s new policy that offers some military benefits on the same-sex domestic partners of members of the military undermines the traditional definition of marriage, two archbishops say.

The Defense Department policy extending marriagelike benefits to same-sex partners of military members was announced by outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. He said the benefits would include access to military identification cards, military commissaries, and various family support programs on bases and posts.
