Obama's social experiment would have devastating effects on the finest military force the world has ever known.
At issue is a pending vote in the Senate on repealing Section 654 of Title X of the U.S. Code. This law, on the books since 1993, states: "The presence in the armed forces of persons who demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability."
The authors acknowledge that 67 percent of all Marines, more than 60 percent of special-operations personnel, and 57 percent of soldiers in Army combat units believe changing the law would hurt military efficiency, unit cohesion, readiness, and retention. Overall, 35 percent of service members deployed overseas said that changing the law in current circumstances would have a negative impact on combat effectiveness. And, perhaps most telling, nearly one-third of all those who are now part of the best-educated, best-trained, and most-combat-experienced military in history will consider "getting out" rather than serve side by side with openly homosexual men or lesbians.

When your approval rating is in the teens, you just don’t care. We’re getting closer to a time of pitchforks and torches.
That's their agenda.
Can't think of a good one I've ever heard of in Congress.
How hasd this worked out in with the IDF? I remember reading an article in the NYT which said (of course) that all was hunky-dory but haven’t read anything on gays in the israeli forces for a long time.
The military should have as much say
as you Americans. ... NONE.
Once again I would like to add that this FIGHT is not over; We conservatives in the next Congress need to call Congressional-Hearnings; and really highlight to both the Military and the Public (as well as the elites in the media), the REAL and negative effects this will have on our military..
Does anyone have any links to how this has effected the British Military or others..?
Mighty fine looking drapes you’ve put up there, Soldier. Thank you, Sir, I sewed them myself.
Putting the agenda of a small group of activists ahead of the will of the American people is what this administration is all about.
MORAL ABSOLUTES *(ping)
So at the Marine Corps Ball, we’ll have lesbos doing the cha-cha and the queers doing the tango.
Makes me wanna puke up codfish bones.
What good are pitchforks and torches when the military cannot even defend itself, neither at Fort Hood nor in the shower? Homosexuals and Atheists have left the foxholes and taken over our liberty.
The core of this issue is not about so called, “homosexuals” but about the First Amendment right to dissent. Anyone who does will now be guilty of “discrimination”.
Your “government” has just taken sides in the age old debate on original sin and the government sided with the sinners. Objection=discrimination.
Discrimination against believers in the word of God are now guilty without trial. The official persecution has just begun.
Your fate is now in the hands of Janet Nepolitano, Ellen Degeneress, Lily Tomlin et al.
There will be no mercy from those who are already willfully separated from God.
Merry Christmas from the Rinos and Democrats. Sodomy in our rear ends without the decency of consent or lubricant. Merciless fascism.

To put it bluntly. “This sucks.”
Bingo. Gay Marriage and repealing DADT officially normalizes homosexuality. As such, gay military personnel now will be able to show gay affection openly, including at formal dances and other events. Whether or not they will actually do it remains to be seen but any objection to it will be seen as discrimination or even a hate crime.
What a mess this is going to be, and what incredible idiots in congress for forcing this. They have indeed unleashed a pandora’s box.
For many years - everyone who enlisted to serve in the military was required to read a statement that the policy of the military was that the gay lifestyle was antithetical to military, and would be a cause for discharge from the military.
IMHO - this represents a “contract” - a condition of service - that goes BOTH WAYS.
If the Congress decides to drop that contractual requirement, then perhaps everyone presently serving in the military should be given the option to ask and receive an honorable discharge from military service - since Congress has changed the contract!
If we loose 30% or more of our military - so what. It’s not like we have a country worth fighting and dying for any more.
“Congress would be better without gays serving there too. “
Congress consists mostly of cowards who look for political cover for every vote.
You mean they bent over for it.
PC be damned...I will NEVER hesitate to express my opinion of homosexuality...I have just as much right to my opinion as they do, and they will NEVER, EVER shame me into acceptance.
“Mighty fine looking drapes youve put up there, Soldier. Thank you, Sir, I sewed them myself.”
What do you thay we bivouac together tonight?
nearly one-third of all those who are now part of the best-educated, best-trained, and most-combat-experienced military in history will consider “getting out”
When 1/3rd of the military quits..it makes us weaker for sure. Who’s gonna replace them?...the gays...I think not.
The list of targets for the election of 2012 is getting larger & clearer.
Every person that voted FOR this abomination should not survive the next election for their seat.
PC be damned...I will NEVER hesitate to express my opinion of homosexuality...I have just as much right to my opinion as they do, and they will NEVER, EVER shame me into acceptance.””
AMEN—You are not alone with that thought.
As such, gay military personnel now will be able to show gay affection openly, including at formal dances and other events.
I can’t imagine this happening at the Marine Corps Ball. At one we attended a tipsy grunt was dancing a bit wildly and was dressed down by a superior for it. They keep them in line. Or did, anyway. This could be a real disaster.
This “guy” looks a lot like a young Lindsy Graham, don’tcha think?
DI: You eye balling me maggot?
Recruit: SIR ... NO ... SIR!
DI: I don't believe you fluff ball.
You're queer for me boy ... aren't you?
Recruit: Batting his eyes ... SIR ... YES ... SIRRRR!
What’s next? Legal protections for school teachers to act on their “genetic” desires to screw underage students?
Great idea Vineyard; Please propose this to your local Congressman if they are supportive of your position, if not find a friendly in your current state or the one next door.
~We have to find ways to combat this-figuratively since this would not be a time for puns-THE VERY EXISTENCE of our nation could rest in our hands, unless we want to end up like Rome~
December 18, 2010, THE DAY THE LEFT DECLARED WAR ON THE US MILITARY, and Conservatives fought back-this WILL be reversed, but we must fight back and WE WILL win!
I predict an increase in the number of blanket parties. Do you want to be the crewmate of an active pair on a sub? Won’t our Navy be just like the British, but without the rum?
In the combat arms, the queers are going to rue the day they “won” this legislation. AWOL and desertion rates for faggots will go up because they’ll be buried out on range 116 East.
For the congress - every last one of you - you are beneath contempt for what you have done to the best armed forces the world has ever known. You shall reap your just rewards in hell for this.
JMHO, of course.
Israel has a conscript army, so pretty much everybody has to serve in some capacity (apart from religious exemptions).
However, openly gay troops are kept in separate IDF units, usually performing rear support functions.
I followed a good chunk of the hearings on CSPAN. With the exception of Inhofe, the Republicans were completely unprepared with their questions. Serious, obvious, fundamental questions about this issue and the study WERE NOT EVEN ASKED.
“Whats next? Legal protections for school teachers to act on their genetic desires to screw underage students?”
Pedophelia is the next taboo the perverts are breaking. We’ve already been told that “intergenerational relations” are healthy.
Stop it! You're killing me here.
For our Heavenly Father will NOT TOLERATE this rebellion for long, until He rewards them ... according to their works!
Those who OBEY and BELIEVE Jesus Christ and His Heavenly Father,
I'm sure. After all, it's just "genetic" so we should all embrace such behavior, right?
It is no accident that with the most leftist regime in our History (even worse than Wilson), the degrading of the military is a prime objective of the democrats. Pondscum is more to be tolerated than democrats.
But, something tell me that the words "blanket party" ain't gonna mean what it used to!
