Military gay group growing, aiming for more rights
The Washington Times ^ | February 20, 2012 | Rowan Scarborough

Posted on 02/20/2012 9:19:58 AM PST by jazusamo

An association of gays in the military has more than doubled its membership since last year, is setting up more on-base chapters, and plans to hold its next national conference at a Defense Department resort at Walt Disney World.

The expansion of the group OutServe in the five months since the repeal of the Pentagon’s ban on open gays shows how a steady stream of service members are coming out of the closet and are becoming better organized to achieve demands for more benefits.

~snip~

Elaine Donnelly, who heads the Center for Military Readiness and worked to keep the ban, said OutServe is showing itself to be divisive.

“OutServe is a gay activist group using provocative tactics to advance their agenda in the military, and to establish themselves as a special interest group pushing self-serving demands,” Mrs. Donnelly said. “Special interest advocacy groups, which are inherently divisive, are not permitted for any other cohort in the military.”

Gay-rights groups have listed a number of post-ban demands, including allowing cross-dressers and transsexuals to serve openly, and providing benefits for the spouses of gays.

The Pentagon said it cannot provide such benefits because of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as involving one man and one woman.

It sure didn't take long for the gay activists to organize after the repeal of DADT.

That’s coming right up folks. That will have to be changed.

Shades of Green will soon be over run by faggots and Carpet munchers.

It wasn’t hard to see this coming. Give them an inch and they take a mile. No pun intended.

They were organized before the repeal - they're as bad as the Islamists and their aim is the destruction of traditional marriage. With the present Regime in place, they may well achieve it.

Homosexuals are not just mentally unstable, they see themselves as “spethal” and want privileges for being sodomites.

I have said this for several years: Their ultimate goal is (and always has been) to get gay “marriage” accepted in every state ...VIA the military.

Overall, what they really want is God’s approval for something that is absolutely unholy. THAT will never happen.
Satan always counterfeits and demands a price ... for what gives as a gift.

“a steady stream of service members are coming out of the closet and are becoming better organized to achieve demands”

These are not patriots serving there country and defending us. These are gay activists getting free money and benefits and are probably not subject to the military discipline that ordinary servicemen are. Our armed forces will soon decline as these people won't fight for their country. They will just make demand after demand.

Sadly you’re both correct. Everyone with any sense knew the repeal of DADT was only their first step.

This is a huge reason the turkey in the WH has to be sent packing.

When the going will be hard, they will find ways to avoid their jobs and duties in the army, just the way we let these insanes influence us into letting them avoid the responsability of their gender.

These are welfare frauds and wussies. AMerica is pussified beyond any recognition.

This is happening for only one reason.

One day there will be more gays in the military then straights.

It will be at that point that congress makes it easier for the military to vote.

Wow, knock me over with a feather!

They told us they’d be satisfied with the repeal of DADT, and there was no “slippery slope” to more demands.

What happened?

Is it time for a return to the old days when the sate militias were separated from the national military?

Is it time for some state governors to refuse to release their states' National Guard units for overseas adventures without the constitutionally required declaration of war by Congress?

Is it time for governors to employ their state military in activities which are much more important in protecting Americans such as securing our national borders?

We are a republic based on certain principles and one of the most important is that our military is established to protect Americans, not provide a captive audience for bizarre and grotesque experiments in the current insanity.

They need to drive the Christians out of the military.
With Christians in the military, they cannot use the military to oppress the population.

Hitler’s shock troops were very homo, and such a seared conscience was necessary in order to get them to do what “needed” to be done to keep “order” under Hitler.

by that time voting will be outlawed to protect the constitution.

(keep counting then lock in the result. The constitution will no longer be allowed to breathe or live)

Congress is already alarmed that voting may actually have an uncontrolled result.

Agreed, but I would add that there probably are a fair number of them who simply do want to serve...and that was working during DADT. Now the militant gays are likely seeing opportunity and will mess it up for the ones who at least had their hearts in the right place.

This will turn out to be a disgusting mess for sure.

“There goes the neighborhood...”

Nope. The neighborhood's been going for over 40 yrs now.

Few people seem to realize that PC has been filtering and shaping the organization and staffing of various bureaucracies to make them responsive to the Center. (This includes the business world as well as gov’t etc). This thing with gays in the military isn't the beginning of the end, that happened 40 some odd years ago, this is the end. Any one who would refuse to follow “orders” has been sent packing a long long time ago. The predilections of the organization has been set in concrete; Individuals need not apply, and THAT has been the point of PC from the beginning(not 'fairness' as we have been told). Some in the military might balk when the orders that we all know are comeing finally come, but the organization itself WILL execute the orders. They have proved themselves to the Father of Lies as he has demanded they do. My advice to God fearing Individuals: buy ammo.

My son, a Navy Captain, retired early with 24 years last summer.

He was going for 30 but, two things made him bail early, obummer and the fag revolution.

He told me he could not be a part of what he saw was going to happen, and it is just getting started.

Wait until a Catholic Navy Chaplain has to marry two fags, one a Sailor {a Corpse- Man} and the other a Marine...oh boy.

Which will the Marine Commander be more pissed about, the queers getting married or the fact that Marine queer is marrying a squid.

My cuz’ serves in Sokor/DMZ territory. When they were briefed about the faggot policies, everyone in the hall uttered ‘f*ck’ silently.

The funny part is that everyone murmured at the same time, it becomes a big noise. Then the base commander said something that “I hear ya” complete with eyes-looking up/sarcastic face included.

You are right about that, Having flaming gays in the military will be poison for unit cohesion and our armed forces.

Plus it will keep out lots of good men who would serve otherwise.

What this country needs is good private sector military training to compete with the PC crowd.

I knew that doing away with DADT was just the beginning. The homosexuals are out to do to the military the same thing that they did to our schools and churches. Total destruction. The lawyers are drooling just thinking about all of the lawsuits we are about to see being brought against the military. Unfortunately for the taxpayers, the federal government hires the worst lawyers available to fight for the taxpayers. We’ll be throwing money at the homosexual crowd faster than Barry can print it.

I don’t believe in ANY social organization of any active duty troops, for ANY purpose.

Their social organization IS their military service.

It is NOT a democracy and it’s not even an open society. It’s closed to all but its own members and rank & command, not democracy determine its operations and activity. That is as it must be.

“Social organization” into memnership groups by “interest” leads only to balkanization of the loyalties of those who serve.

I am not saying that INDIVIDUALS do not have, do not need to have some INDIVIDUAL expression of their INDIVIDUAL interests (religious or otherwise), but organizing into groups around those interests is NOT healthy, for and within the military.

The success of the military mission DEPENDS on unit cohesion and all the troops aligning their loyalties to each other in that mission.

Social organization into membership groups by interest within the ranks creates sources of disunity and division.

It should be universally banned.

I absolutely agree and was glad to see Elaine Donnelly point out that the military is making an exception for this “OutServe” group. This should not stand and military leaders should shut it down immediately, of course that won’t happen with Zer0 as CinC.

Homosexuals in the mil. already were causing huge problems even before the repeal of DADT. Huge problem. Homosexuals should not be in the mil, “out” or “not out”. Ask, tell, and out the door if the answer is wrong should be the policy.

We have to get back to decency and basic morality. It will happen. But my tagline says what I think.
