Senate?

Conservative?

Let us pray that this is not a harbinger of things to come out of this putative "conservative" Senate

Repealing DADT Will Immediately Reduce Our Military Forces By Between 10% and 23%

God have mercy on their spoiled souls

Was the Shooting of Giffords a Crime, or an Act of God?


Each of the 95.5% of Americans who CLAIM to be Christians must condemn to Hell EACH one of the following "senators" who violated their oath of office, who voted AGAINST the will of the vast majority of their own constituents, against all common sense, against God, and in agreement ONLY with Anti-Christs, by giving the less than 1/2% of our military "men" who are gays greater rights than the VAST majority of our REAL military men who OPPOSE the elimination of "don't ask, don't tell" and in fact have the RIGHT to pursue military careers WITHOUT being exposed to ANY gay at ANY time in ANY place under ANY conditions.

We ALL must pray to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that each be stricken with a deadly disease that makes the horrible death of AIDS look like child's play by comparison. We all must pray that each dies long before the FIRST military man is raped by a gay with the APPROVAL and under the watchful eye of almost two thirds of our "senators". We must pray that He protects any military man who is raped, accosted, approached, seduced, or simply insulted by a gay,by giving him the power and the right to castrate them on the spot in the way our Founding Fathers proposed, and that He empowers the brave 31 senators who voted against, and the four who failed to vote for this desolation of abomination, to restore sanity to our Senate, our country, and our military men.

For these 65 people to be so out of touch with the Founding Principles of this putative Christian nation, to be so uniformly ignorant of what Scripture ACTUALLY requires, to give a criminal 1/2% of the American people super-rights, makes us the laughing stock of nations:

"WASHINGTON -- The Senate voted 65-31 on Saturday to end Don't Ask, Don't Tell, defeating a 17-year policy of banning gay and lesbian service members from serving openly in the military. Six Republicans initially crossed the aisle to vote against the policy: Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), Scott Brown (R-Mass.), Olympia Snowe (R-Maine) and George Voinovich (R-Ohio)"

It's a slap across the Face of God which Scripture warns will lead to their rapid fall from power, certain destruction, and ultimate death, not those of us who continue to OBEY the Word of God in spite them. It's also completely contrary to the wishes of the VAST majority of the very constituents who these senators took an OATH to represent, morally and fiscally:

WASHINGTON, DC - House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement after the Senate passed legislation empowering the Defense Department to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell":

"Today marks the end of the discriminatory 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy, with the Defense Department now empowered to implement its repeal. I have long called for the repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' and I am proud to have fought to end it, from writing the compromise language that passed the House in May, to serving as the original co-sponsor of Rep. Patrick Murphy's stand alone legislation that passed the House this past week. No longer will the brave men and women who fight for our country be asked to live a lie. And no longer will our Armed Forces lose valuable resources in the men and women who bring talent and dedication to protecting our nation. Today's vote shows that Senators of both parties listened to active duty members of the Armed Forces and their families, who broadly support repeal. I look forward to seeing the President sign this repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' into law very soon."

You, sir, don't have the morals of an alley cat. Except that to call such people moral minors or to claim that they don't have the morals of alley cats is an insult to moral minors and alley cats.

Senate Repeals "Don't Ask Don't Tell"

Faiz Shakir, ThinkProgress: "Moments ago, by a 65-31 vote, the Senate acted to repeal Don't Ask Don't Tell, the policy banning gays from openly serving in the military. The same six GOP senators who broke with their party during the cloture vote earlier today also voted for repeal: Sens. Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe, Scott Brown, Lisa Murkowski, George Voinovich, and Mark Kirk. Two more Republicans - John Ensign and Richard Burr - joined with Democrats in final passage."

THIS, in precisely the same time frame when TWO THIRDS of the states, and 70% to 86% of the voters in those states, enough for a constitutional amendment, voted IN DOMA acts (defense of marriage acts, which amended state constitutions to end gay marriage). THIS at a time when the sheer survival of this putative Christian nation is questionable in the minds of MOST Americans, and when more than two thirds view their own government as a greater threat to their own liberty than Sadam Hussein and Osama bin Ladin COMBINED. By this single act, the entire Senate has become irrelevant and all future rulings have become null and void on their face.

I'm so embarrassed by their actions that I personally don't think I could look any one of them straight in the face. I pray that the OTHER 35 senators find a way to bring them to their senses before the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob exercises judgment on them in His Typical Manner:

But I tell you that it will be more bearable for Sodom on the day of judgment than for you, Matthew 11:24

There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel. Deuteronomy 23:17

And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel. 1Kings 14:24

They die in youth, and their life is among the sodomites. Job 36:14

`And a man who lieth with a male as one lieth with a woman; abomination both of them have done; they are certainly put to death; their blood is on them. Lev 20:13

Military Times Poll: Troops Oppose Gay Agenda for the Military

   [Elaine Donnelly]

The Military Times, a liberal Gannett publication favoring inclusion of professed homosexuals in the military, has just released an astonishing poll of active-duty subscribers.  Results of the 2008 annual survey indicate that success for that cause essentially would destroy the volunteer force.

As in previous years, the annual Military Times Poll (linked on Drudge today) reveals that approximately 58% of respondents are opposed to efforts to repeal what the survey described as the �Don�t Ask, Don�t Tell policy.� The catchphrase incorrectly labels the 1993 law, Section 654, Title 10, which clearly states that homosexuals are not eligible to be in the military.

The 2008 Military Times Poll asked a new question that produced jaw-dropping results: �If the �don�t ask, don�t tell� policy is overturned and gays are allowed to serve openly, how would you respond?� The article emphasized that 71% of respondents said they would continue to serve.  But almost 10% said �I would not re-enlist or extend my service,� and 14% said �I would consider not re-enlisting or extending my service.� Only 6% expressed �No Opinion.�  Before voting to repeal the law, Section 654, Title 10, members of Congress, and President-elect Barack Obama, ought to do the math.

If the opinions of Reserve and National Guard troops are similar to those of active-duty personnel surveyed in the Military Times Poll, and if the poll�s findings approximate the number of military people who would leave or consider leaving if the 1993 law is repealed, combined losses (including Guard and Reserve forces) would be huge.

�A rough estimate using Defense Department numbers for all service branches and components, totaling more than 2 million, indicates that a loss of one in ten (almost 10%) would cost the military approximately 228,600 people � more than the active-duty Marine Corps (200,000).

�If an additional 14% decided to leave, the voluntary exodus would translate into a loss of almost 527,000 � a figure approaching the size of today�s active-duty Army (more than 545,000).

�Estimates of losses in active-duty forces alone would range between 141,000 (10%) and 323,000 (23%).

The poll�s findings are not an exact prediction, but they are significant and ought to be of great concern to President-elect Barack Obama and members of Congress who are considering a vote to repeal the 1993 law.  If that legislation succeeds, the Defense Department�s new policy would be forced cohabitation with homosexuals, 24/7, in all military communities, to include Army and Marine infantry, Special Operations Forces, Navy SEALS, and submarines.

Corollary programs to make the new policy �work� would include professional �diversity training� to enforce acceptance, and �zero tolerance� of anyone who disagrees.  Dissenters would face discipline and be denied promotions, which would end their military careers. Incidents of misconduct would increase threefold, to include male/male and female/female misconduct that undermines discipline and demoralizes the troops.  These results would harm recruiting and retention, and effectively destroy the volunteer force.

Advocates of repealing the law always point to professional civilian polls that appear to support their cause, but they have been confounded by the annual Military Times surveys, which have always been more credible.

Professional pollsters recognize that survey respondents who think that a policy is already in place are more likely to favor it.  Military personnel, however, are more likely than civilians to know what the 1993 law actually says, and why.  Hence the disparity between the Military Times annual polls and several highly publicized civilian polls asking confused questions about Bill Clinton�s convoluted �Don�t Ask, Don�t Tell� policy.  Civilian polls, like the one done last July by the Washington Post, usually limit their inquiries to personal feelings about homosexuals (which are usually positive), or ask whether gays should serve openly or discreetly.

The December 2006 news release announcing the often-quoted Zogby Poll on this subject, which was paid for by the Center for the Study of Sexual Minorities in the Military (now called the Michael D. Palm Center), blatantly spun the story by omitting mention of responses to the key question asked � Should homosexuals serve openly in the military?  The 26% of Zogby respondents who favored repeal of the law could not compete with the combined 69% of people who said that they were opposed or neutral on that question.  This was hardly a mandate for radical cultural change in the military.

There is no record of any poll seeking to gauge opinions on the actual consequences of repealing the law: forced cohabitation with homosexuals in all military communities, 24/7, with �zero tolerance� of dissent.

The Military Times Poll also indicates that 60% of the active-duty troops surveyed are  �Wary of Obama.� The newspaper's webpage posted a video of Obama talking about his intent to convince the troops that he knows what he is doing.  It does not help to know, however, that high-level members of Obama�s Transition Team are meeting with leaders of the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered) Left to discuss administration appointments and legislative goals.

There is no �national security� argument for repealing a law designed to protect good order and discipline in military living conditions offering little or no privacy.  Federal courts have upheld the constitutionality of the statute several times, and it continues to enjoy strong support among military men and women.   Regardless of what it is called, the 1993 law, Section 654, Title 10, deserves continued support.

Contrary to some disingenuous news reports, activists for gays in the military are determined to impose their agenda on our military.  They are working with the incoming administration and pushing hard for repeal.  Members of Congress and the new Commander-in-Chief need to take this issue seriously, and see to it that activists demanding repeal of the law do not win.
