Five congressmen have sent a letter to the Secretary of the Army expressing their concern over the case of Chaplain Scott Squires. Chaplain Squires was facing what his attorneys are calling a "career-ending punishment," for explaining to a soldier that he could not conduct a marriage retreat that included same-sex couples. As a result, a military investigation at Fort Bragg determined Chaplain Squires should be disciplined.

One of the congressmen who signed the letter, Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC), joined Todd Starnes to explain why Chaplain Squires' punishment is "a huge mistake."

"Someone in the chain of command, someone in the Army, has made a decision that in my opinion violates federal law. It violates the First Amendment rights of this chaplain and the First Amendment rights of every chaplain in the military," Rep. Hudson said.
