National Clergy Council president the Reverend Rob Schenck stated, "General Pace is an outstanding American, an extraordinary leader and a distinguished military chief. In his comments about homosexual behavior, General Pace expressed the views of a majority of Americans and said nothing untoward or in conflict with his duties, military regulations or the laws of this country. We will ask President Bush to support General Pace's right to stand by his convictions as he enforces the military code of conduct."
Mr. Schenck is also chairman of the Committee on Church and Society for the Evangelical Church Alliance, America's oldest association of Evangelical clergy. He is available for further comment at 202-546-8329, extension 106.
