Defending the family

Senators Jim Inhofe and Roger Wicker are this month's Family Advocate awardees

Senators Jim Inhofe and Roger Wicker are this month's Family Advocate awardees for service to the pro-family community.

NBC News reports: Two U.S. Senators have introduced legislation to ban same-sex marriages from occurring on military bases, following approval of a similar bill by the House of Representatives.

Sens. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., and Roger Wicker, R-Miss., co-authored the legislation presented Tuesday that would prevent marriage or "marriage-like ceremonies" of same-sex couples at military facilities. It would also allow military chaplains to opt out of performing such a union if they object for "reasons of conscience," Inhofe's office said in a statement.
