Repeal of “Don’t Ask” Has Led to No Exodus of Military Chaplains
July 06, 2012

When Obama repealed the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy last year, critics charged that the move would restrict the freedom of military chaplains and lead to an exodus of clergy from the armed forces. (Much like, say, the thousands of gay servicemen and women who voluntarily or involuntarily left as a result of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy itself.) Instead, as the AP reported this week, the end of the 17-year ban seems to have caused zero problems.
