Dateline: March 14, 1778
On March 14, 1778, George Washington, then Commander in Chief of the Continental Army, approved the sentencing of LT Enslin on attempted sodomy of another soldier. General Washington called it an infamous crime to be viewed "with Abhorrence and Detestation". He ordered Enslin "to be drummed out of the Camp tomorrow by all the Drummers and Fifers in the Army never to return."
This factual story is proof that at one time in history, the American military was moral and principled. What ever happened? This past week, the Secretary of Defense and the President of the United States are celebrating the epitome of immorality. The Pentagon officials have announced that they will participate in June's Gay Pride month and host the first military event honoring Gay and Lesbian troops.
So, what is it that is so special about Gays and Lesbians in the military ranks, or even in civilian populace, that determines that homosexual behavior should be celebrated by the nation? In the military; are homosexuals more brave than straights? Are homosexuals more courageous under fire? Are homosexuals so very special that they deserve an entire month of national celebration? Or have we as a nation become so depraved that the act of "SODOMY" has become something of a standard to admire? Someone in Washington, D.C., someone at the Pentagon really needs to explain why open homosexuality among the military ranks is something to be celebrated. What is it about the thought of two men having anal and oral sex that the Generals, the President and the Secretary of Defense find so appealing, that they have decided it deserves celebration on a national level? What's next? Will there be a special "Rainbow Ribbon", or better yet a "Homosexual Medal of Valor" for coming out of the closet? Perhaps a "Not-so-Good Conduct Medal". Will the military have to find a politically correct way to issue the "Dishonorable Discharge" so as not to offend the other homosexuals? None of this makes any sense, none at all, and yet it is happening.
Allowing open homosexuality in the military can not and will not do anything to enhance combat preparedness. It does however, segregate the troops, as though the troops need additional segregation. Pandering to the Gay and Lesbian lobby does nothing by split troops, undermine their effectiveness, and negate esprit'de corps. From the beginning, this open homosexuality experiment, starting with the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell", has been a political move on the part of a corrupt President, who has been instrumental in corrupting the military leaders of this nation. All though, I do not know how any General, or any Command Officer, or even any Command Sergeant Major can see this open homosexuality as an asset to military effectiveness or decorum. One thing the celebration of open homosexuality in our military does do, it makes America the laughing stock of the planet.
The president stated that he would fundamentally transform the United States of America, and he is doing just that. He is transforming America's morality into immorality. He has transformed America's rule of law into America's most corrupt government in the history of our nation. He has removed honorable principles and replaced them with lies and falsehoods, to the point where adherence to fundamental truth, integrity and good conduct, are no longer recognizable in our government, military or business communities. Oh yes, Barack Obama has already changed this country, and none of it for good. Under Obama, Christianity is persecuted and ignored, yet Islam is exalted and protected. The truth is now labeled "hate speech". Those who speak the truth in America are referred to as "racists", "bigots", "homophobic", "Islamophobic", "trouble makers", or"inciters of violence". Preaching from the Bible has been labeled as exhorting hate speech, because of it's undeniable truth and the conviction it pervades. The Islamic Qur'an is being protected, even though it encourages violence against any non-believer. Oh yes, Barack Obama has changed this country.
Here are some findings stated by congress in 1993 that supported "Don't ask, don't tell."
1. There is no constitutional right to serve in the armed forces.
2. Military life is fundamentally different from civilian life.
3. The prohibition against homosexual conduct is a long-standing element of military law.
4. The presence of persons who demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts would create and unacceptable risk to the high standards or morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability.
Number (4) is an important statement, as it shows just how depraved and degenerative our elected leaders have become since the year 1993. The entire "Open Homosexuality" in the military is nothing but a social experiment, an experiment that will ultimately result in an extreme weakening of our military operational effectiveness, (but that is the plan, isn't Mr. President?) and countless avoidable deaths due to the obvious distractions that accompany open homosexuality, that may become prevalent in combat situations. Our sons and daughters will be expected to work around yet another government imposed entanglement. The laws may have changed, but make no mistake, the findings have not changed. Because the findings remain legitimate, this open homosexual conduct in the military must be repealed, at the earliest possible opportunity.
The practice of homosexuality is an abomination unto the Lord. God will not honor or bless those who encourage this practice, anymore than He will bless and honor those who continue to engage in it.
A prodigal nation we have become. We Christians are standing idly by, while our nation is being led down the road to perdition. It is past time for Christians to get back to the reading and practicing of the Word of God.
We have an election in the offing, America can ill-afford to blow this last chance to turn the nation around. It is imperative that prior to casting your vote, you seek the wisdom and advice of God. Do not vote from your wallets and purses, vote from Biblical principle. If you have not read the Bible, I suggest you find one, get into it before this coming November. Walk with the Lord, pray daily for guidance.
Support candidates at all levels that closest share your same Christian principles and adhere to the Bible. Vet your candidate, if he/she has lied to you in the past, he/she will lie to you again.
Be diligent, be vigilant, we as a free nation, as a Democratic Republic cannot allow the continuation of this culture of corruption in our local, state and federal governments.
