FILE - In this Wednesday, June 27, 2012 file photo, U.S. Air Force chaplain Col. Timothy Wagoner sits in the McGuire Air Force Base chapel at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in Wrightstown, N.J. Wagoner has left the Southern Baptist Convention after the conservative denomination publicly questioned his decision to attend a same-sex civil union ceremony at his base in New Jersey. Wagoner is remaining on active duty and has received an endorsement from the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, which has more moderate views on homosexuality and some other issues than the Southern Baptists.
