Barbour: Reinstate DADT Because An "Amorous Mindset" Will Interfere With Decision Making
As we noted yesterday, Bryan Fischer has broadcasting his radio program live from the Rediscover God in America conference in Iowa. Yesterday he had Rep. Michele Bachmann on the program and today he hit the trifecta as Newt Gingrich, Mike Huckabee, and Haley Barbour all joined him live in his remote studio.
As Fischer is want to do, he asked Barbour if he would reinstate Don't Ask, Don't Tell if he were to be elected president and Barbour asserted that "of course" he would because an "amorous mindset" will interfere with the decision-making process under fire:
Barbour: Let's look at the best evidence that we have. They did research to see what military people thought about this idea. The closest to the ground, the soldier on the ground, was the most opposed to this. And it's not necessarily over homosexuality. Its over the fact that when you're under fire and people are living and dying of split-second decisions you don't need any kind of amorous mindset that can affect saving people's lives and killing bad guys. You look at the data and it is the foot-soldier that is the person who is out there, boots on the ground, who was most against this. And it's because they live or die with this and that's who we ought to be listening to, that's who we ought to be caring about and that's why I am against it. I think it ought to be rolled back. I just don't see how you can take any other position if the person you are trying to protect is the soldier who is actually in combat.
