The North American Mission Board’s executive director for chaplaincy, Douglas Carver, is reiterating that Southern Baptist military chaplains endorsed by NAMB on behalf of the convention do not support same-sex civil unions or marriages that might take place on some military installations.
Carver’s statement follows a news article published by the Associated Press implying that Air Force Chaplain (Col.) Timothy Wagoner condoned a same-sex ceremony that took place on his base. The 20-year NAMB-endorsed chaplain strongly refutes the news story.
“When the AP story first came out, we contacted Chaplain Wagoner and he assured us he was either misinterpreted or quoted out of context in the story,” Carver said.
