Conservative columnist Monte Kuligowski wrote today in Renew America that the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell will help “sink the country” because God will stop protecting America “when the official position of the state is the thumbing of the nose at God.” “Americans once had the confidence that their divine protection was a strong, impenetrable fortress,” Kuligowski writes, “but now we might hope in vain for a cardboard box as the various storm clouds gather.”
Continuing his anti-gay screed, Kuligowski mocked a Navy lieutenant for marrying his partner immediately following the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, warning that as “America grows weaker her enemies grow stronger and more emboldened” until the country eventually falls into “complete ruination”:
Welcome to our upside down world where wrong has become right and right has become wrong.
In celebration of the new era of open homosexuality in the U.S. military, USA Today featured a story on Sept. 20 of a Navy officer rushing to “marry” his male lover — complete with a photo of the new husband (wife?), Lt. Gary Ross wearing his Navy dress uniform during the ceremony.
That which has always been considered dishonorable in America is now honorable to the hard left.
The real danger we now face is that the state is sanctioning homosexual practice by law. We’ve gone from longstanding state-sanctioned disapproval to state neutrality to state-sanctioned approval in a fairly short span of time. The difference between saying, “What people do in private is their business,” and, “It’s right for the state to sanction and protect immoral behavior” is overwhelming.
Religious traditionalists have warned and will continue to warn that the extraordinary blessings Americans have long enjoyed cannot be presumed to continue when the official position of the state is the thumbing of the nose at God — the same Almighty God our founders relied upon for divine protection as they pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor in the contest for our faith-based liberty.
Americans once had the confidence that their divine protection was a strong, impenetrable fortress; but now we might hope in vain for a cardboard box as the various storm clouds gather.
For those who think that it’s just coincidence that liberals happen to be federally sanctioning open homosexuality at the time of a national debt problem so enormous that many fear the very end of American civilization as we know it — they might want to think again.
As we can learn from ancient civilizations, moral and economic decline are coinciding shipmates which, ultimately will sink the country. As America grows weaker her enemies grow stronger and more emboldened. For now, a false security is found in the fact that complete ruination seldom happens overnight.
