The AFA ‘s Bryan Fischer is back with yet another post about gays – shocking, I know:
Gays showering with straights? Absolutely.
If President Obama, congressional Democrats, and homosexual activists get their wish, your son or grandson may be forced to share military showers and barracks with active and open homosexuals who may very well view them with sexual interest.
Talk about creating a hostile work environment for people who practice normative sexuality!
As former General Colin Powell observed in 1993 (before bowing to pressures of political correctness), “…it would be prejudicial to good order and discipline to try to integrate gays and lesbians in the current military structure.”
Strangely, Fischer doesn’t bother to mention that just last week Powell announced his support for repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
Regardless, Fischer has his own inane explanations for why we must not repeal it DADT:
The bottom line here is that if we do not insist on retaining the ban on homosexual military service, our military will no longer be the place America’s families want to send their best and brightest young men and women.
Overturning the ban will have an obvious and devastating affect on recruitment, retention and readiness. If open homosexuals are allowed to serve, fewer of America’s best young men will want to sign up, fewer will want to re-enlist and as a consequence the military’s readiness to defend us from our enemies will correspondingly decline.
Allowing open military service will compromise the good order, discipline and morale necessary for our military to remain the finest in the world.
The military’s purpose is to kill people and break things to keep us safe. It never should be used as laboratory for experiments in social engineering that are doomed to fail.
Do you ever get the impression that the bottom line here is really that Fischer just dislikes gay people?
