December 21 is the longest night of the year. This year it will also be the date for a three-and-and-a-half hour lunar eclipse, a calendrical coincidence stargazers haven’t seen since 1554.
In other words, the day on which President Barack Obama will normalize sexual perversion in America’s military will be the darkest day in 456 years.
(Dictionary definition of “perversion:” “sexual behavior or desire that is considered abnormal or unacceptable.” Using the word is not name-calling, it is truth-telling.)
The eight Republican senators who meekly caved to the homosexual agenda by voting to allow open homosexuals to serve in the military do not seem to have the vaguest idea of the havoc they have wreaked on the American military and on American society
And at least two GOPers who voted for this bill - Richard Burr of North Carolina and John Ensign of Nevada - seem positively embarrassed by their vote. Burr offered a lame and self-contradictory justification for his vote, and Ensign just disappeared. They know they did something terribly wrong here, and headed for the tall grass as soon as they could after the vote.
This victory for the deviancy cabal is only the first of many LGBT activists will pursue.
Contessa Brewer of MSNBC has already asked Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire how long it’s going to be before Congress mandates military benefits for the partners of homosexual soldiers, even though the awarding of such benefits is flatly prohibited by federal law.
And transgendered activists are already complaining now that while their homosexual brothers and sisters have been declared the full equivalent of the sexually straight, men trapped in female bodies are still sitting in the back of the bus. They are already insisting that they get to play soldier too. And all this before the president has even signed this bill into law!
Surrender on this issue will not satisfy homosexual activists. It will only encourage them and empower them.
Not that logic and reason and facts and research and history have anything to do with this misbegotten piece of legislation, but logically, the next two groups of people who should get special preferential treatment in the U.S. military are drug abusers and prostitutes.
This is for one simple reason: there are just three clusters of individuals the FDA will not allow to donate blood under any circumstances: homosexuals, injection drug users, and people who have sex for money.
Why? Because such lifestyles are so disease-riddled and so likely to result in contracting HIV/AIDS that the FDA knows that letting them donate is to play Russian roulette with the nation’s blood supply.
So if homosexuals are now getting preferential treatment in the United States military, despite the clear and present danger their lifestyle represents to their own health and the health of others, there is simply no logical reason to deny that same preferential treatment to drug addicts and prostitutes.
Ninety-one percent of all males who have contracted HIV/AIDS since the epidemic started in 1977 have contracted it either through having sex with other males (60%), intravenous drug use (22%) or both (9%). Hooking is the next most risky practice for getting this lethal virus.
People will naturally recoil at the thought of allowing druggies and hookers to serve openly and wantonly in the U.S. military. But how is that different than allowing active homosexuals to serve? In point of fact, it isn’t.
Why, only prudish, antediluvian Neanderthal troglodytes would deny them the opportunity to defend their country! How can we possibly justify such egregious discrimination against such harmless souls? It’s time for the United States military to drag itself (pun intended) into the 21st century! Stop the invidious discrimination against druggies and hookers - now! Sign ‘em up! Let’s get ‘em into our showers and our barracks and foxholes! If we let gays in there, we’ve got to let needle-pushers and street walkers in there! It’s only fair! They’ve been denied the opportunity to serve their country for far too long! This terrible injustice must end!
