DON’T ASK DON’T TELL REPEAL

Report on ‘gays’ in military rigged
– WorldNetDaily

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Don’t Call Our Troops Homophobes
– Human Events
Instead of asking whether the troops support repeal of DADT, the Pentagon asked only if they can learn to play nice with the gays. ven more absurdly, the Pentagon polled all military “personnel”—and their spouses! Only a small portion of what is known as “the military” actually does the fighting. The rest is a vast bureaucracy along the lines of the DMV.
The Pentagon’s report found that service members “repeatedly” said that allowing gays to serve openly would “lead to widespread and overt displays of effeminacy,” as well as “harassment” and unwelcome advances. (To which I would add, “and the occasional leak of massive amounts of classified documents.”)

Gays in the military understand this better than heterosexuals in civilian life.
only 15 percent of gays currently serving said they would want their units to know they’re gay.

Christian Rout in the Culture War
by Patrick J. Buchanan
Remarkable. The least respected of American institutions, Congress, with an approval rating of 13 percent, is imposing its cultural and moral values on the most respected of American institutions, the U.S. military. Why are we undertaking this social experiment with the finest military on earth? Does justice demand it? Was there a national clamor for it?
 
No. It is being imposed from above by people, few of whom have ever served or seen combat, but all of whom are aware of the power of the homosexual rights lobby.

MassResistance Special Report on repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” – what you need to know
(Note: this is a brief overview of a lengthy, detailed article)
In an historic display of corruption and sleaze, the Democrat-controlled US House and Senate—along with Republican Scott Brown and other RINOs—effectively voted to repeal “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell,” with the US Senate vote Saturday. This opens the door to public integration of homosexuality (and even transgenderism) into the US Armed Forces. It will be a change of monumental destructive proportions.

The margin of victory came from Congressmen and Senators who had already been defeated in the Nov. 2 elections, thrown out of office largely because of their support for Obama’s radical left-wing agenda. In a cowardly last-ditch jab at America, they rushed it through in a lame-duck session, knowing that the new Congress which begins in a few weeks would never pass it.

They knew full well that the majority of Americans greatly oppose this agenda. All 31 states which voted on “gay marriage” have defeated it, many by large margins. But particularly outrageous was Sen. Scott Brown, the newly elected Republican from Massachusetts who was swept into office by pro-family and Tea Party support, vowing he’d be the “41st vote” against the Obama agenda and would oppose the DADT repeal. Brown completely abandoned his base and his campaign promises, and blatantly voted to homosexualize the military.

The military leadership has already made it clear that their attitude will be very aggressive. Last month Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, announced that military people who have a problem with homosexuality are free to find another job, or may not want to join the service to begin with.

Part II: Continuing failure of pro-family & conservative movement.
– The conservative media wouldn’t talk about it.
– Conservative money people won’t fund effective counter-action.
– Mainstream pro-family groups water down the message and compromise the fight.
– Our biggest day-to-day problem in this struggle is NOT the homosexual groups. It’s the “nice” but well-funded pro-family and pro-life groups in Massachusetts who want to be liked by the politicians and media
– “Conservative” political consultants push Republicans to the left.
– “Conservative” Congressmen and Senators won’t talk about homosexuality.

Conflict between Pentagon and Catholic military chaplains brews over ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’

“Those with a homosexual orientation can expect respect and treatment worthy of their human dignity,” said Archbishop Timothy Broglio, Catholic overseer for military chaplains, in a statement released late last week. “However, unions between individuals of the same gender resembling marriage will not be accepted or blessed by Catholic chaplains.”

Why they want to homosexualize the military
– Tim Dunkin, Renew America
The Pentagon recently released a bogus report that supposedly suggested that military personnel would be just dandy with openly serving gays. Of course, once you start to parse the report and look at some of the internal data you find out that actually, the combat arms of the military would be most UNhappy with serving alongside openly gay comrades.

Buried within the report was a most interesting little fact — a little over 12% of personnel currently serving said they would resign or decide not to re-up should gays be allowed to serve openly. Think about that. That means that, if DADT is repealed, fully 1/8 of the U.S. military will leave. That translates into several hundred thousand persons.

Persons who can then be replaced by out-and-out homosexuals. Homosexuals who, typically, have an antipathy towards flag-waving, God-and-country style conservatism. Homosexuals like Bradley Manning, the Wikileaker, who was so emotionally unstable that he let his personal disagreement with official policy become a “reason” for leaking highly classified information that has now put the lives of many at risk.

And as more gays join, more normal people will leave or will simply not join in the first place, until you have a military that is made up of two types of people — homosexuals and the morally weak who just “go with the flow” and won’t stand on any sort of conservative, traditional principles. Exactly the type of military force who will go along with disarming and subjugating the American people.

Don’t assume that a homosexualized military would be too wimpy to do it, either.

Call it a conspiracy theory, but I have a strong feeling that this is what lies behind a lot of the agenda of repealing DADT and allowing gays to openly serve in the military. It’s a way of getting out of the way the folks who won’t participate in the enserfment of the American people, and replacing them with some folks who will.

Think about it — when we see the Sodomites in the Bible, what were they doing? Trying to violently force themselves onto some men. Among the Greeks, those who engaged in homosexuality were often the most violent. Take the Spartans, for instance. They were the warrior caste par excellence in classical Greece — and they were open practitioners of both adult homosexuality as well as pederasty.

Sider is right that we cannot successfully defend marriage if we accept easy divorce, and I dare say I am right that we cannot successfully oppose the gay lifestyle if we defend contraception. But I’m not sure Sider is right that Evangelical heavy-handedness concerning homosexuality has gone a long way toward ruining our chances in the culture wars. That’s too much like blaming those who are right for what is wrong.
