Democrat Bill Will Overturn Military Policy On Homosexuals

by | Apr 2, 2009 | Blogs, The Strang Report

Gay MiltarySan Francisco Values Democrat Ellen Tauscher (CA) has introduced H.R. 1283, the “Military Readiness Enhancement Act Of 2009.” She already has 136 co-sponsors.

Her misnamed bill should be called the “Legalization Of Sodomy On The Battlefield and Barracks Act” to more accurately describe what the legislation will legalize.

The bill will amend Title 10 of the United States Code to replace the current policy on homosexuals with a policy of non-discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

The legislation will add “sexual orientation” to the law. It is defined in H.R. 1283 as “heterosexuality, homosexuality, or bisexuality, whether the orientation is real or perceived, and includes statements and consensual sexual conduct manifesting heterosexuality, homosexuality, or bisexuality.” This will open up the possibility that every sexual orientation could be legalized in the military! This will include cross-dressing and transsexualism. Proof of this is that several bills are being pushed through Congress that will make drag queens and transgenders into federally protected minorities.

The Tauscher bill will impose the homosexual agenda on the military.

Confusing History

The history of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is confusing. Congress passed a law in 1993 that reaffirmed the long-held standard that homosexual conduct is incompatible with military service. However, President Clinton ignored the law and issued a policy statement that homosexuals could serve in the military as long as they didn’t tell anyone they were homosexuals. Military authorities were ordered not to “ask” if someone was a homosexual. This Clinton policy has become known as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and most Americans think this is federal law.

Tauscher’s subversive bill will overturn the federal law passed by Congress and undermine the military in dozens of ways. One of the most obvious ways it will subvert the military is to drive out men and women who view homosexuality as a sinful or unnatural behavior. These straight soldiers will retire or refuse to reenlist if they are forced to serve with individuals who engage in bizarre sex acts on military bases.

Those who do stay in the service will be forced into re-education classes to teach them that homosexuality is genetic and that homosexual behaviors are no different than heterosexual sexual behaviors in marriage.

The legalization of sodomy in the military will also reduce the numbers of men and women who will enlist in the service. A Military Times poll of active-duty personnel revealed that 58 percent of them oppose repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” A 2008 poll found that if the law is repealed, 10 percent of the respondents would not reenlist and 14 percent said they would consider ending their careers.

This would have a devastating impact on our military readiness. The best and most patriotic of American soldiers could leave the service to individuals with sexual identity problems.

Col. Ron D. Ray, (USMCR, retired) has written extensively on the dangers of permitting homosexuals to serve openly in the military. In his essay, “Lifting The Ban On Homosexuals In The Military: The Subversion Of A Moral Principle,” he notes: “Junior officers and NCOs already fear that any and every effort made to investigate or screen [homosexuals] can and will be challenged as a ‘witch hunt’ leading to legal and public challenges and criticisms. Investigating or criticizing homosexuality will become as politically incorrect as pointing out the military significance of the many real differences between the sexes. The troops will get the message.”

There is also an effort by the White House and Congress to legitimize drag queens/transgenders in the military, too. The normalization of these behaviors are in many bills being pushed through Congress. This will impact the military as well.

The passage of H.R. 1283 is a recipe for disaster in the military – and our national security will be jeopardized by permitting homosexuals, drag queens and others with bizarre sex habits to serve openly in the Armed Forces.
