Not even taking into account the 2010 lame duck session repeal of the misnamed law “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” (This was actually the name of a policy signed by President Bill Clinton. The actual law was a ban on homosexuals in the military — period.), the current administration has negatively impacted our military.
U.S. Senators Roger Wicker (R-MS) and Jim Inhofe (R-OK) have introduced
S 3526, the Military Religious Freedom Act. This bill, if passed, would do two things:
(1) prevent military chaplains from being forced to perform a marriage ceremony if the chaplain objects for reasons of conscience and (2) prohibit marriage or marriage-like ceremonies at military facilities that are not a union between one man and one woman.
Today marks the end of a policy which has stood since before America became a nation. A ban on homosexuals serving in the military did not start in 1993 ; it has stood since when General George Washington was our military’s commanding officer. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), an advocate for a strong military, is appalled that the concerns of our military are simply swept under the rug in the name of political correctness. Even more appalling is that a Pennsylvania Congressman led this attack on the military’s unit cohesion and readiness.
1.) Defunding Planned Parenthood is critical 2.) Stop the homosexualization of the military.
