On her radio show today, Mission America head Linda Harvey lamented the presence of military service members and Boy Scouts in LGBT pride parades. The anti-LGBT activist called openly gay service members and scouts an “insult” to their peers, bad role models and most likely child predators. Is anyone who insists on open homosexual behavior in our military the kind of soldier we need? I don’t think so. And here’s the basic issue: no one needs to be doing this behavior in the first place. It’s an insult to fellow soldiers, and in a Boy Scout situation, it’... MORE

Former congressman Allen West is peeved that a veteran who was kicked out of the military because she is gay had her discharge status upgraded to “honorable discharge,” making her eligible for veterans benefits. While the military has a review board which handles requests to change discharge statuses, West seems to think the move to change the gay former service member’s status is without precedent and even suggests that opening health care benefits to gay veterans will harm other veterans. He blames the decision on “an executive order repealing the ‘Don’t... MORE

The opinion leaders at Alan Keyes’ Renew America have published not just one but two insane anti-gay columns today. First, Sylvia Thompson alleged that openly gay black athletes are out to “destroy black America.” Then, Laurie Roth joined in with a call for the restoration of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell in order to stop President Obama from attempting to “terrorize” and “destroy” military service members by “raping their freedom of speech and religious rights.” Indeed, Roth is pretty sure that the military will soon be approving...

On yesterday’s edition of Washington Watch, Family Research Council vice president Jerry Boykin said that America is experiencing an “absolute destruction of our military readiness and our military morale because the leadership in our military has not been willing to stand up to the President” on issues like the 2010 repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Boykin was talking to host Tony Perkins about a recent BuzzFeed post that said President Obama “was unwilling to compromise with service leaders over DADT during a meeting in 2010.” Boykin likened generals...

American Family Association radio host Sandy Rios said yesterday that she wants to restore the ban on gays in the military because gay people are “disordered” and won’t be able to “provide strong defense for our nation.” Rios, who is also the AFA’s governmental affairs director, was reacting to a Palm Center study that calls for an end to the military’s prohibition on transgender service members, which led her to a long rant that serves as a great example of heterosexual privilege. Have we been so lulled into silliness and foolishness that we think... MORE

Speaking with Family Research Council president Tony Perkins on Washington Watch yesterday, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) explained that the recently unveiled Pentagon budget “has the effect of killing our young Americans in combat.” He said President Obama is to blame for spending cuts because he probably doesn’t want to have a military anyway: “A real liberal in his heart doesn’t think you need a military anyway, I know people that would never admit that, but people I have served with here in the United States Senate, that’s the crisis we’re up against....

Apparently, Benghazi didn’t cause the Ukraine crisis after all. American Family Association radio host Kevin McCullough said yesterday that Russian president Vladimir Putin decided to seize Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula as a result of a drag show fundraiser on a US military base in Okinawa. McCullough said Putin feels he can “get away” with his invasion of Crimea “because of what he has seen disintegrate culturally right in front of everybody’s eyes in the US” along with “the sissification of our military.” “Putin looks at the US and...
