On “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, Obama Orders Military to Fall In


By Tony Perkins

perkinsWhile the President plows ahead on his agenda with — or more likely without — the country’s support, he could emerge from these fights with nothing more to show for it than the last Democratic President.

But make no mistake. If he fails to persuade Congress to legislate his extremism, this President has other ways to achieve it. Today’s hearing in the Senate’s Armed Service Committee is the perfect example.  

Defense Secretary Robert Gates, together with Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is rolling out a “relaxed” standard on homosexuality in the military that would strip the law of its teeth while the President tries to overturn it.

To prepare for what they call the “eventuality” of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal, the top brass has said it will dramatically shift the process of “outing” homosexual servicemen.

For starters, the military would no longer investigate a soldier’s sexuality based on a “third party” account. In other words, only “flagrant violators” would be ousted — dramatically cutting down on the number of dismissals.

Also, generals and admirals will be the final authorities on which soldiers are discharged after years of processing those decisions in the lower ranks.

In effect, the President is saying that he may not be able to overturn the law without Congress, but he can stop enforcing it.

Under this administration, the new policy seems to be ordering the military to disobey the rule of law — the very thing they’ve been sworn to protect. Richard Black (U.S. Army-Ret.), former chief of the Army’s Criminal Law Division, explains why that’s an irresponsible and potentially dangerous decision.

In today’s Washington Times, Black paints a horrifying picture of life with homosexual soldiers that would only worsen once gays and lesbians are militaryempowered to flaunt their sexuality.

” … At Fort Sill, Okla., in 1991, two homosexual recruits caught a lone soldier showering at night. They violently sodomized the soldier, forcing him to submit by strangling him with a bath towel. At the time of trial, the victim was hospitalized under psychiatric care…

“Recruit training is especially problematic. Male recruits had to physically subdue one homosexual drill instructor at an Army base to keep him from raping a male recruit as that recruit struggled to escape out a second-story window…

“At Marine Corps Base Quantico, a company gunnery sergeant sexually attacked a young officer candidate who had stayed back at the barracks while his platoon was out training.”

The other side drones on about “political correctness” but says nothing about the safety forfeited to achieve it.

In just a few days, more than 30,000 of you have signed FRC Action’s petition to Congress, urging members not to turn the military into a battleground for social engineering.

Please join the fight by sending the link to your family and friends!

It seems like 10 years instead of 10 LONG months! I can’t wait to give all those fools their pink slips! Obama is ruining this country financially and morally and every way possible! I pray that we get a majority of strong conservatives in both Houses and we the people that this President, Vice-President, and all the liberal traitors and RINO”S impeached that have helped him destroy our country!

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, that their bodies might be dishonored among them. For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire towards one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,” Rom. 1:18, 24, 26-28

Will God continue to have mercy on this nation? Our commander in thief and the generals that he has picked to run the military are evil cowards afraid of the “political correct” crowd.

I do not condone homosexuality; but I don’t think there is any hard evidence that gays/lesbians are any more prone to commit rape than heterosexuals. The article listed a number of rape attempts/successes made by homosexuals in the military; a quick internet search could produce an equally long list of military heterosexual attacks.

Moreover, the listed homosexual attacks have happened under the current “don’t ask don’t tell” regieme. Therefor, that regime is not providing sufficient protection from homosexual rape. Additionally, I have never heard of a study showing that overt homosexuals are more apt to be preditors than covert ones, so there is nothing to suggest that allowing homosexuals to admit their sexuality is going to increase the number of sexual assualts.

There’s no excuse for using bad logic and one-sided data to defend a political position; you need to use solid defendable data and logic–if you don’t you are setting yourself up for failure and sabotaging your own cause!
