Funny how many of the same proponents of allowing openly gay people to serve in the military support forcing Christians to follow the current “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy currently in place against Christians in the military – and in civilian life as well.
The next front in the battle against Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell should come in the form of allowing Christians to serve in the military openly. And by openly, of course we mean telling the Gospel to all who wish to listen. And explaining right and wrong as defined in the Bible. And not just for the Chaplains, who are forcibly silenced by the Anti-Christian DADT policy in place.
The policy against speaking the Name of Christ is ostensibly in place to avoid offending anyone.
The repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (as far as sexual preference) sets a new precedent that must be exploited by Christians and anyone of any faith for that matter.
DADT was in place because many are offended by homosexuality. Not just offended, seriously conflicted in their core beliefs. Not only are we forced to feign acceptance for something most find morally offensive, but we are forced to keep quiet for fear of offending the offenders! Not to mention reprisals.
Our military should also now be free to council homosexuals in the error of their ways in the name of Christianity (or Allah). Especially if they find the actions of others offensive and immoral. To do otherwise would be to not serve openly, right? One’s lifestyle must be accepted and openly living that lifestyle is now protected.
Those offering Christian council or instruction under Islamic Law to homosexuals who decide to “openly” declare their sexual preference in the military should receive full protection from persecution.
Openly allowing one’s beliefs and behaviors to define their military service is now the new reality.
Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists and even Atheists must demand the same rights as homosexuals to bring out who they are in their everyday military life.
To hell with the consequences on our military. Individual behavior is more important!
On second thought, perhaps DADT was reasonable after all.
