Homosexuality and the Military
Many conservative commentators view the push to repeal the U.S. military policy “Don’t ask, Don’t Tell” as a significant step toward full validation and acceptance of homosexual behavior in the overall society.
“The three most significant institutional barriers to the full normalization of homosexuality in the society are the military, laws governing marriage, and the churches. For this reason, all three of these institutional forces have been directly targeted by those who would push for the full acceptance of homosexuality. A focus on these institutions is essential if homosexuality is to be recognized on an equal moral and cultural footing with heterosexuality. There is no surprise here.” –Albert Mohler
John Berry, White House director of the Office of Personnel Management and the highest ranking gay official in the Obama administration, seems to agree. While being interviewed by a gay website, Berry stated that the Obama administration goals are: passage of “hate crimes legislation,  ENDA [Employment Non-Discrimination Act,  Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, and  DOMA [Federal Defense of Marriage Act], in that order.” Berry added, “we will do it before the sun sets on this administration.”
Indeed, there is not a surprise in how gay advocates are going about their work. Understand that their efforts are well underway. But do we fully understand the significance of such a change to the military?
“At present, the armed forces operate under policies that identify open homosexuality as incompatible with military service. With a single stroke of legislation, that policy will not only be repealed, it will be reversed. Homosexuality will be transformed from something that is officially ‘incompatible with military service,’ to a reality that must be protected by rules and regulations about discrimination, advancement, promotion, and military culture.”—Albert Mohler
