On "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

George Washington would be rolling in his grave at the news of the attempt by this administration and Congress to normalize homosexual behavior in the armed forces.

General Washington literally drummed men out of the army who practiced homosexuality. He knew that the strength of the military was more a function of their unseen moral character than it was of their visible military might. Our founders understood that morality was defined by the Bible, and our laws and public policy must be consistent with Biblical principles. The Bible sets the boundaries for ordered liberty. It is the objective standard that has provided peace, prosperity and stability for over 400 years. The repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is an attempt to call “moral” what God has called an abomination. Homosexuality, as well as any sexual practice outside of holy matrimony is immoral, and as stated on the walls of the Missouri Senate chamber: “Nothing is politically right that is morally wrong.”

We must call on the new Congress convening in January to re-establish once again the primacy of our Judeo-Christian standard of law and morality, and reaffirm the standards clearly set forth in the Uniform Code of Military Justice which strictly forbids homosexuality and adultery.

To do anything less would mean losing the favor of God and emasculating our military.
