The Chaplain's Alliance for Religious Liberty wants the liberty to discriminate

Led by former chaplain Ron Crews, the Chaplain's Alliance for Religious Liberty is just another run-of-the-mill anti gay group. It is comprised of seven retired officers who never served after the repeal of DADT. Add to that 16 Christian pastors who don't seem to have a military background. Their new outrage is the benefits now being provided to spouses of gay service personnel. Their conclusion, though, is rather comical:
It is an outrage that the Department of Defense would provide benefits to an unknown number of persons, at significant cost to the military, at a time when the military’s budget is being reduced. It is even worse that this is being done without consulting Congress.
OK pinhead. If it is an "unknown number of persons" then how is it a "significant cost?" It is certainly not a great number of people. Furthermore, the retention of gay service members is as important as any other. Spousal benefits are provided for just that purpose.
