Gonna piss some people off here

And I'm OK with that right now.  Here's a letter from a retired Chaplain that I received today, and I'm posting it in it's entirety.

Yesterday, September 20th, 2011, a date that will live in infamy, the U.S. armed forces were deliberately and successfully attacked by advocates of the scourge of homosexualism. The elimination of the last vestige of moral restraint on sexual perversion in the U.S. military, commonly known as the "Don't Ask / Don't Tell" (DADT) policy, ushers in a new Orwellian era in which the military leadership of our nation will proclaim the unnatural as natural, the unhealthy as healthy, and the immoral as moral.

In August 2010, before the DADT policy was rescinded by the U.S. Congress and the current President of the United States, I wrote the following in a guest editorial in Stars & Stripes, the private newspaper intended for the U.S. armed forces:

A “nondiscrimination” policy would surely mutate into approval and celebration of the “gay” lifestyle, followed by “affirmative action” recruitment of homosexuals, politically correct ideological indoctrination throughout the armed forces including family members, and, finally, active discrimination against — and persecution of — those who dare to express a dissenting opinion.

We shall soon see whether that prediction was exaggerated or prescient.  May God the Holy Trinity preserve the U.S. armed forces especially in this new Dark Age.
The repeal of DADT was less about "equality" as it was about pushing political correctness onto the Army, with the resultant lawsuits and other legal actions that will follow.  We'll see how much damage the Armed Forces sustain from this.  All I know is that we haven't begun to see the problems yet, because nobody has bothered to actually try to figure those problems out.  Just wait until the first Chaplain preaches his faith, to include advocating against homosexuality, and the lawsuits start to fly.

And before anyone tries to tell me that removing DADT was about "equality", I still cannot shower with the females.  Why not?  Because long ago, people realized that allowing people who are sexually attracted to each other causes problems in a military unit.  But now men who are sexually attracted to me can shower with me in an open bay shower, and I cannot shower with females who I am sexually attracted to.  So it's not about "equality", is it?  No, all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

Satan is winning.

I wonder how many straight people will not re-up now?

He makes some very big logical leaps between "the military will no longer fire someone for being gay" and "the military is now going to actively approve of, promote, and then specifically recruit the gay lifestyle through 'affirmative action'"

You might note that there is a big, big, BIG gap between not firing a guy because he is gay, and approving of and promoting his lifestyle. You might also note that "affirmative action" does not, and has never, applied to gay people, so it won't here, either.

EEO? Yes, it applies to pretty much anything you could discriminate against someone for. Affirmative action? Has never happened in any venue. Ever.

This is petty scare-mongering at its worst. There isn't a single thing that this guy wrote that has any grain of truth to it. If you have logical, reasonable arguments as to why gays should not serve, then I'm all ears. If your only argument is that the military "will proclaim the unnatural as natural, the unhealthy as healthy, and the immoral as moral" when no such thing is even remotely close to happening - they are just not going to fire gays anymore - and that as a result, it is a "new Orwellian era", then spare me.

All that has happened in this ruling is that the military won't fire a good man simply because they found out he is gay, as has happened countless times throughout the life of this idiotic policy. They aren't "promoting the gay lifestyle" any more than an employer hiring a black man is "promoting the gansta lifestyle".
