Congressmen Vote to Destroy Our Military
(Harrisburg) – Only six of Pennsylvania’s nineteen Congressmen got it right concerning homosexuals in the military. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide traditional values group, also notes that five of the thirteen who voted to homosexualize the military were voted out of office on November 2nd.
“It is very concerning that Congress is more intent on allowing homosexuals in the military than they are in dealing with more pressing issues like the nation’s finances. One must wonder what their motivation is – what have the homosexual groups promised?” questioned Diane Gramley, president of the AFA of PA.
Pennsylvania Congressmen Chris Carney, Kathy Dahlkemper, Paul Kanjorski, and Patrick Murphy each lost their re-election bids and Joe Sestak did not run for his Congressional seat, but lost his bid for US Senate. Each lost their bid for another two year term or a longer Senate seat, but still felt it was appropriate to attack our military.
The questions are: “Have the Congressmen voting for homosexuals in the military personally read the Pentagon report issued on November 30th and “Have they read the “case synopses” of all 1,643 reports of sexual assault reported by the four branches of the military for Fiscal Year 2009.
The Report found
- more than 12% of military personnel overall would leave the military sooner than planned — a percentage that potentially equates to 264,600 of the 2.1 million active-duty and reserve force.
- Nearly 60% of respondents in the Marine Corps and in Army combat arms said they believed there would be a negative impact on their unit’s effectiveness.
- Among Marine combat arms, 67% of respondents said that repeal would have a negative impact on their unit’s effectiveness
A review of the case synopses of reported sexual assault in fiscal year 2009 reveals that over eight percent (8.2%) of all military sexual assault cases were homosexual in nature. This suggests that homosexuals in the military are about three times more likely to commit sexual assaults than heterosexuals are, relative to their numbers.
“Anyone thoroughly reading the Pentagon Report, studying the case synopsis of military sexual assault and really being concerned about our nation’s military and national security would not vote to allow homosexuals into the military,” Gramley noted.
