"In a landmark vote, the Senate on Saturday ended the Clinton-era ban on gays serving openly in the military, marking a major triumph for President Obama, liberals and the gay community."
In an abstract sense I really don't care about this issue. It seems to me to be a subject not unlike deciding whether the uniform should be blue or green. The military should be allowed to make the rules that it believes will best serve the mission of defending the country and the Constitution. Since the Constitution gives the authority to Congress to meddle in the affairs of the military, for good or bad, then so be it.
My concern is that the real reason behind this is not to strengthen the military or to support the rights of homosexuals in the military, though I don't see how their rights are any different than anyone else's which makes me wonder why they need to be singled out based on a sexually deviant proclivity.
No, I believe that this is part of a larger effort to change perceptions, to pervert society and to silence those that disagree.
If I'm right then the proof will be in this; will military chaplains be free to openly opine on the verses from the Bible that I've posted below? You know, the ones that, in crystal clear and unambiguous language, condemn homosexuality and go so far as to declare it an abomination and a sin worthy of death.
I'm going to make a prediction that the God given freedom of speech and religion guaranteed and protected in the First Amendment will be trampled by the Pentagon and the courts in order to advance an immoral agenda based on the twisted idea that proscribing speech promotes tolerance. This is the pattern that is played out over and over in our battles with evil and I see no reason not to expect it to be played out here.
We live in an upside down, through the looking glass world where right is wrong, black is white and left is right. There is no truth because truth is the enemy and lies are our friend. Many are so afraid of dissent that they ban it in the name of transparency, not caring whether it is true but only whether it advances or retards an agenda.
Watch how this issue plays out in the military. Look for bans on certain parts of the Bible to accommodate the agenda of the homosexual lobby. As these bans become entrenched in the military they will be expanded into civil law and the First Amendment will be swept away as the free expression of religious belief becomes "hate speech", just as it has in Canada.
They don't need to invade us en masse, they just have to take us apart, piece by piece, one special interest at a time. Weaken the wall enough and eventually it'll fall.
Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,
Nor the effeminate, nor liers with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6 9:10
Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind, because it is an abomination.
If any one lie with a man as with a woman, both have committed an abomination, let them be put to death: their blood be upon them.
For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature.
And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error.
And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient;
Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness, full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity, whisperers,
Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Foolish, dissolute, without affection, without fidelity, without mercy.
Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who do such things, are worthy of death; and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them.
Romans 1 26:32
But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully:
Knowing this, that the law is not made for the just man, but for the unjust and disobedient, for the ungodly, and for sinners, for the wicked and defiled, for murderers of fathers, and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
For fornicators, for them who defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and whatever other thing is contrary to sound doctrine...
1 Timothy 1 8:10
