(CNSNews.com) - Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told CNSNews.com on Wednesday that he did not know that the 926-page Defense Department authorization bill that came through his committee and was approved by the Senate last week on 93 to 7 vote included a provision that would repeal the militarys ban on sodomy and bestiality if the bill becomes law.
CNSNews.com asked McCain: Senator, did you read the Defense authorization bill that was passed last week? Were you aware of the language that repealed the ban on sodomy and bestiality?
On what? McCain replied.
CNSNews.com followed up: The repeal of the ban on sodomy and bestiality in the military, were you at all aware of that?
Ill have to ask my folks, McCain said. II will check on it and have, and hell get back to you.
CNSNews.com then asked: You dont agree with that language?
I dont, I dont know what yourehonestly. I read the bill. And I was there for many hours of deliberation and debate and amendments. And probably spent hundreds of, several hundred hours on it. But that particular provision I did not know. So well have, well get back to you. Well get back to you. Just call.
As CNSNews.com previously reported the bill that was first approved by the Armed Service Committee, where McCain is ranking member, and then on the Senate floor, where McCain voted for it, does in fact include a provision repealing the militarys ban on sodomy and bestiality.
Page 174 of the bill includes a provision headlined in capital letters: REPEAL OF SODOMY ARTICLE. Click here to see a PDF of the page.
The provision states: Section 925 of such title (article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice) is repealed. Click here to see the language of the provision as posted on Uniform Code of Miltary Justice website.
Article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which anyone can find by doing a Google search, says: (a) Any person subject to this chapter who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy. Penetration, however slight, is sufficient to complete the offense. (b) Any person found guilty of sodomy shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.
After the interview with Sen. McCain, CNSnews.com followed up with his office, as the senator suggested, asking why McCain had not been aware of the provision that woud repeal the military's ban on sodomy and bestiality and, now that he was aware of the provision, whether he supported it. McCain's office did not immediately respond.

Now his daughter can date members of the military.
John, meet Mr Bend Over
Great, just great.
Can’t get anthing past ol’ eagles eyes! Er... wait...
Gotta pass it to find out what’s in it doncha know?
So much for reading bills that are voted on. My question is, which upstanding member of congress put this in there? Inquiring minds would like to know.
Sickening and unbelievable.
They are not rerading the bills...their staffers are not reading the bills.
Something like this would have stood out like a sore thumb for anyone with a shred of moral values and they would have stood up and renounced it and removed it before a vote.
That it got through tells you all the more how incompetent they have become in their lush environs.
Vote them out...all of them...in favor of common American citizens who care about the country, want to serve her, and have dignity and moral character.
Normally I’d say a RAT but I wouldn’t bet on it this time. Only 3 Republicans voted against the bill, every one of them should be questioned.
If you say so, John...
I HATE McCain’s GUTS!
Amen, you’re dead on the money.
Who here really thinks a military member should be prosecuted under the UCMJ for receiving oral sex from his wife upon returning from deployment?
You and I know that’s not what this is about.
The guy’s a horse’s ass.
Who does he think he is, Eric Holder? “My staff never briefed me on that. I never saw the memo. I’m so incompetent I should just resign.”
What is it we’re paying these fools to do?
Well folks it’s like this: I don’t have any use for McCain, but I read the highlighted link to the PDF, and to be honest, I couldn’t read it. I have no idea what it said .
You would have to have law books and study each item in order to get any sense out of it.
I believe they write trash like this so that normal people cannot read it.(Not that I am calling Mccain normal.)
If they wrote the laws in English, perhaps they would know what they are voting on. I doubt seriously Mccain did anything more than scan it and did not pick up on what he was backing. That’s no excuse mind you,and he should seek to coprrect his mistake by passing a new regulation against bestiality, although I doubt he could get todays Congress to agree to it. Te sodomy parts he would never get through there rtoo many sodomites on the Hill, and probably a few who practice bestiality.
Republicans need to contact their Republican senators who voted for this crapola, and tell them how disappointed they are in them.
Also, I wonder if the Dems sneaked it in later?
Either way, the Republican senators must know of our outrage!
As a dog and horse loveer, I resent that comment! The little creep is more like a rat’s behind, if you ask me.
Pathetic Idiot self-hating loser. I swear Charlie brainwashed his crazy ass.
Just why do taxpayers pay these arrogant losers? Read the bills, you incompetent fools. One can only hope for justice for these poseurs.
Sodomy should be illegal in the military. (includes bestiality)
It is a disease-causing act—destroys the body—and promotes treating human beings in inhumane ways—even animals don’t engage in the sick behavior. Fisting, Rimming, urinating on faces, is VILE, McCain!!!!! INHUMANE, Mr. McCain!!!!!
The Founding Fathers knew how vile sodomy was (English buggery)—how incompatible it is with Natural Law and God’s Law and Reason and they kicked homosexuals out of the army and forced all that vile behavior in the closet. It was the best decision for our country and created the most Christian and moral military in the history of the world. The vile homosexual Nazis and Japanese and the atheist Russians and Chinese had vile inhumane, brutal militaries.
Judeo/Christian worldview built the most intelligent, prosperous, free people on the face of the earth.
We shouldn’t adopt the sodomy of the Middle East and Samurai and Nazis— Nor can we adopt the behavior of Ancient Greece since they had slavery and, as all sodomites know—women are relegated to second class citizenship and children are used for sexual lust.
We need to outlaw sodomy again. It should be illegal in all societies like the enlightened African nations whom used to have homosexual kings who forced sodomy on their troops, men and boys—killed them if they wouldn’t perform.
Ya...we need that mindset in OUR military, McCain—you vile POS.
Sodomites are pederasts and vile people. All history proves it. Top serial killers were homosexuals who mutilated bodies because sodomizing people destroys respect for the human being-—makes people easy to be brutalized.
Destroys Christian paradigm in our military which is the reason for its greatness. It is unconstitutional to eliminate God from our military since that is the principle standards of our Constitution where Rights come from GOD.
Sodomy is Satan’s standard to destroy morality. There is nothing worse than an immoral military. ALL THE FOUNDERS KNEW THAT and that is why SODOMY was ILLEGAL! McCain is so STUPID (or evil).
Clearly the repel was so we could recruit more middle easterners.
I knew horses and sheep were included. I didn't know Wookies were too.
Do you think a soldier receiving oral sex from his wife should be prosecuted under the UCMJ?
The law is the law, and all parts of it must be included.
Was it a good law that would include such a provision as to throw that man in the brig and bring an end to his career?
It's worse than that, Jim; he's brain dead!
The repeal of the ban on sodomy and bestiality in the military, were you at all aware of that?
Ill have to ask my folks, McCain said. II will check on it and have, and hell get back to you.
Has to "ask his folks" if he was aware of it or not.
McNasty....the little dip-weed
All sexual activity should be an offense and punished. Are you saying two soldiers, just because they are married, can be performing sex acts while on duty? In front of others?
Women in the military is another denial of Natural Law Theory—basis of our Legal System and laws. Shouldn’t have them training with the men period. The insane making unconstitutional rules! Lesbians should be thrown out. The idea that no sexual harassment will occur is ridiculous. Defies all history about sexual natures.
What about two married “males” in the barracks?....sodomy in the bunks cuz their “married”....YA! Cr+p....there are such SICK VILE MINDS making laws and trying to destroy our military.
We need to get back to Washington’s Code of Ethics—Wiccans in the military HA HA...insanity....Satan as the GIVER of our Natural Rights. Who are making these illogical, insane rules??????
How do we know that Juan did not read the bill and agrees with its content?
Quit insulting the southern end of north bound horses.
Doctor: Soldier, Id better take a closer look at the growth on the head of your penis!
Soldier: Thats not a growth Doctor, ITS MY DOG FLUFFY!
I guess you need to add this to the long, long, long list of things you don't know.
Do you really think congress critters know how to read anything beyond the number 100 on the bills in an envelope???
What does it matter if he now says he doesn't support it? He voted for it, and was instrumental in creating it! How the heck can he get a pass on this?
So what the hell do we pay these worthless pieces of crap that we call Senators & Representatives for? Ya think maybe a small part should be to READ THE DAMN bill you vote one. I’ve had it!!!!!!! I understand that there really are honest and hard working Congressman that actually do what they have taken an oath to do. The rest MUST go. That means voting, people! And getting your neighbors to vote, and in the mean time, read....educate yourself daily on what is going on.
Well I have a different opinion.
If he’s getting too feeble to read the bills he should move on.
He’s been a big F-up since he got into politics and we know he served and was a prisoner but he is among the biggest disasters in politics and has enabled a lot of the most left wing politics the Democrats had going.
Retire John and be shamed, you should be IMO.
You have that right.
That doesn't make it correct.
Do you believe in a limited government?
Do you believe in individual liberty?
