From Catholic Vote:
According the Archdiocese for Military Services, GS and contract priests (who are paid by the federal government as independent contractors in places where there aren’t enough active-duty priests to meet the needs of Catholics in military service) are being forbidden from celebrating Mass, even on a volunteer basis.
If they violate this restriction, they face possible arrest. FOR CELEBRATING MASS.The Obama administration again intentionally oversteps constitutional bounds. The First Amendment protects free exercise of religion whether a practitioner is being paid or on furlough.
If a Catholic priest is arrested for practicing his established role in the faith, I hope Americans immediately demand impeachment of our president and U.S. Commander in Chief for allowing a gross infringement of a protected right under the Constitution.
