Fait accom-pleeeeze: AFA speaker warns of military's Arma-gay-don

by Jeremy Hooper

The sun continuing to rise and set. Water staying wet. Wars being fought on the basis of diverging religious beliefs. Food remaining more tempting than exercise. A seemingly endless supply of young starlets who have it all yet don't seem to appreciate their top prize in the luck lottery.

Those are just some of the things to which I'd be reasonably willing to affix "no doubt" status. For some on the religious right, it's gay soldiers' imminent destruction of our nation's armed forces:

"If we allow [DADT repeal] implementation to go forth, then it will destroy our military, and there's no doubt about that."

-Diane Gramley, American Family Association of Pennsylvania [ONN]

No doubt. Case closed. Jury's back. Verdict in. Gays will mean the military's final Day of Judgement, period, end of story.

And if/when this doesn't actually happen? Eh, whatever -- Diane will go on with her life free from any sort of civil discrimination, with no real accountability for the tangible bias she so self-assuredly cultivated, as the rest of us will have moved on.
