A few weeks ago, the Right was all up in arms over a story claiming that President Obama was forcing the Marines to switch to “girly” unisex hats. The story was, of course, entirely untrue, but that didn’t stop “Dr. Chaps” Gordon Klingenschmitt for talking about it on his “Pray In Jesus Name” program today in order to assert that it was all part of Obama’s plan to allow transgender soldiers to serve in the military by turning “all of the Marines into an abomination” before God.
“You can’t have men in the United States Marines wearing clothing that’s designed for women,” Klingenschmitt said. “So you know what President Obama’s solution is? To make all the uniforms the same. And this is going to usher in the possibility of transgender, cross-dressing men who want to look like women, they’ll be able to wear a women’s uniform.”
Of course, by definition, a “unisex” uniform is neither male nor female so a man or woman who wears one is not actually wearing a uniform designed and designated for the opposite sex. And even though President Obama had nothing to do with it and it’s not happening, Klingenschmitt knows what is really going on.
“This is not just a fashion stunt,” he said, but rather an effort at “setting the stage for transgender admission of cross-dressing men into the military.”
“This decision came down from on high, I guarantee it,” he added, “and that’s a demonic spirit.”
Citing Deuteronomy 22:5, which says “a woman shall not wear a man’s garment, nor shall a man put on a woman’s cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God,” Klingenschmitt asserted that this change was an attempt by President Obama “to make all of the Marines into an abomination because they all put on women’s clothing”:
