Repeal of military gay ban gets mixed review after three months ^ | 12/23/2011 | Rowan Scarborough

Posted on 12/23/2011 1:11:06 PM PST by massmike

Three months after President Obama lifted the ban on homosexuals serving openly in the military, Pentagon officials say heterosexual troops are adjusting well to the new policy.

However, critics say they are just following orders, and many are complaining privately.

“I’m very pleased with how it has gone,” Gen. James Amos, the commandant of the Marine Corps, told reporters on a recent trip to Afghanistan to visit U.S. troops.

However, a recent survey by the Military Times newspaper showed a rise in tensions in units with troops who declared themselves to be homosexuals.

The online poll from Sept. 26 to Oct. 11 found that 26 percent of the newspaper’s active-duty readers reported higher stress levels working with openly gay colleagues.

Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness said most troops are just following orders, regardless of how they feel personally about serving with homosexuals.

“Official claims that implementation is going well are self-serving and premature. Obeying orders is standard procedure. No one expected anything else,” she said.

Yet the gay-rights movement is not satisfied with simply removing the ban.

OutServe, the once-secretive fraternity of gay and lesbian troops that held its first convention in October in Las Vegas, is urging the Obama administration to provide the same types of benefits for gay partners that straight married couples receive.

The gay-rights movement also wants the military to admit cross-dressers and transsexuals.

for the MSM “mixed reviews” of a left wing agenda item means in reality overwhelming opposition.

This is a moronic and unreasoned social policy that only serves to justify a sexual fetish.

abnormal sexual fetishes like homosexuals should not be admitted or any where near the military.

Wait til they get another Roehm—for they is just a matter of time. Homosexuality is an intrinsic disorder-—with self hatred learned—that hatred and defiling of human beings bodies is consistent with the serial killers—most who were sodomized as boys—and they end up brutalizing boys.

It is sick—them forcing American soldiers to “think” that “homosexuality is normal” and a “right”. Such sick unconstitutional law—that forces reeducation camps—no freedom of religion allowed. EVIL behavior is being sanctioned—even give special rights-—really sick.

We won’t have a virtuous army-—can’t when you feature something so demeaning to men. Below shows the type of military homosexuals form—one that is consistent with their demeaning habituated acts:

BTW, this book is the best researched book on homosexuality out there—I checked and read many of the items and books they referenced. They nailed it-—it is why Lively is persecuted by the gaystapo—they HATE him and are actively trying to destroy him.

Won’t let him speak (Truth has to be silenced!!!!!)

An interesting historical perspective:

When one kingdom conqured another, what was common was the enslavement of the kindgom that lost the war. This was standard procedure for 1000’s of years, until essentially the modern era. Certainly, Islam is still conducting their brand of warfare this way.

What is even less publicized than this, however, is that it was common to strip the conquered king before his subjects and sodomize him. This left an indelible impression as to who was in charge, and it was a humiliation before his subjects that could not be undone.

Now, of course, sodomy is normal and we should all either accept it, or even embrace it.
