Special wedding leave granted – above and beyond annual leave
The U.S. military says it has a new benefit for same-sex couples who are in the Armed Services and want to get “married.”
And it’s a taxpayer-funded perk available only to same-sex duos, not heterosexual couples.
It’s government-paid leave to travel to a state that recognizes same-sex “marriage.”
In an email today, Tony Perkins of Family Research Council explained what’s going on.
“A Supreme Court ruling earlier this year said that the federal government must give equal treatment to same-sex couples who have legally ‘married.’ But now the Pentagon wants to give a special, taxpayer-funded bonus to such couples – including a benefit that is not even available to heterosexual couples.”
