You can say that the military has no freedom of religion now....and no freedom of conscious—violations of the fundamental principle of this nation. Government will force “reeducation” clinics that will forbid Christians and Jews their belief system.
The idea that people have to acknowledge and accept destructive behavior as a “good”, denies them their fundamental religious rights. The fact that “right and wrong” according to our Constitution was based on the Bible and Natural Law Theory makes this particularly egregious.
There is no way under Natural Law that homosexuality can ever be anything more than a behavior choice and a bad one at most. Morality is all about deciding good and bad behavior and Natural Law was that basis. Cicero said that laws that go against Natural Law and God’s Laws are unjust. Locke thoroughly agreed.
This repeal is unjust and illegal according to our Constitution and 1st Amendment Rights.
although we have always been a military family, no longer will we be. I refuse to have my young people subjected to moral breakdow in the military, sodomy, Godlessness and the diseases which goes with it.
Any classes designed to change the minds of military members about their religious beliefs will be unconstitutional.
Some soldier required to undergo such classes should immediately sue on grounds of first amendment violation of both “make no law” and “free exercise” provisions of that amendment.
First, requiring a Christian soldier’s presence at a “violate their religious beliefs” meeting is the government saying that their religion is wrong and that they are required attend a class to change those beliefs. They are to be reprogrammed away from historic Christianity.
Second, if Christian soldiers’ religious beliefs require them to be honest about the homosexual practice & lifestyle, and if that honesty will get them censured or professionally injured, then their free exercise is violated.
Christianity is NOT ONLY attending a gathering to listen to praying, preaching, and singing. It is a lifestyle.
The repeal of DADT, if one thinks about it is saying: “Christian citizens not welcome if they actually believe according to the tenets of historic Christianity.”
This nation has been called upon to decide between Christians and homosexuals.
