Tony 'I $hun gay$ for a living' Perkins: Wreaking 'Tell' would be wreaking hell
“At a time of enormous economic challenge, two on-going wars in which Americans are fighting and increased terrorist threats to Americans at home, President Obama seems untethered from that reality as he called on Congress to force the military to allow open homosexuality. As a veteran of the Marine Corps, the timing of the President’s call in the midst of two wars shows that he is willing to jeopardize our nation’s security to advance the agenda of the radical homosexual lobby.
“The military is a warrior culture for a reason: Our service members wear the uniform to fight and win wars, not serve as liberal social policy guinea pigs. The sexual environment the President is seeking to impose upon the young men and women who serve this country is the antithesis of the successful warfighting culture and as such should be rejected."
Well, Tony's right about one thing: Repealing DADT would be the antithesis of the "warfighting." The antithesis of the ignoble "culture war" that groups like FRC have waged against large swaths of this nation's population for far too many decades!
We have an easy exit strategy, one that holds majority support. To Tony, the benign progress might constitute a lab experiment. But those of us who seek true peace know that it's Tony's vehemently anti-LGBT brand of Family Research that that needs to be shut down.
***UPDATE: Sign on to the HRC"s Don't Ask Don't Tell effort:
And he forgets to mention 'lesbian baiting', the current climate towards homosexuality in the military leaves the door wide open for women to be forced into sexual encounters with men to avoid DADT investigation.

Oh Tony.... Poor, delusional, Tony... *Taps Jeremy on the shoulder* Say, he doesn't read much history, then, does he?! If he did, he'd know that some of the most successful armies in recorded history were fought and won by groups of paired male lovers! "Warrior-culture" my ass!
Again, you'll no doubt observe, just as Prof. Chauncey spoke of, that we are being completely sexualized by him in an effort to make us appear somehow "threatening", or like we are destined to impose immorality onto the military's heterosexual "victims"! PUH-LEEZE!

The only people who make this a sexual issue are the people who want to maintain the closet as the status quo. Tony is way too comfortable equating the simple outcome of people no longer having to lie about who they are with a radical sexual environment.

I signed Voices of Honor Pledge. But am still sending letters out to ALL who ask for $$ ...
for anything, including Polar Bears, Haitian reliefe, Health Care reform, Democrats (especially), non-profits too.
SORRY, not a dime until DADT repealed.
The message is getting out!!

Yeah because every gay person just wants to join the military so they can hook up with someone - these people kill me!
