BURIED TRUTHS ABOUT GAYS IN THE MILITARY

Notice how North uses such buzz words as "NAMBLA," "youngsters," and "national security" in his brief argument as to why DADT should not be repealed:



Now, please read the following article entitled, Buried Truths About Gays in the Military its entirety.

Part of the article reads as follows:

A couple of dozen countries already allow gays in uniform -- including allies that have fought alongside our troops, such as Britain, Canada and Australia. Just as there is plenty of opposition in the U.S. ranks, there was plenty of opposition when they changed their policies.

In Canada, 45 percent of service members said they would not work with gay colleagues, and a majority of British soldiers and sailors rejected the idea. There were warnings that hordes of military personnel would quit and promising youngsters would refuse to enlist.

But when the new day arrived, it turned out to be a big, fat non-event. The Canadian government reported "no effect." The British government observed "a marked lack of reaction." An Australian veterans group that opposed admitting gays later admitted that the services "have not had a lot of difficulty in this area."

Israel, being small, surrounded by hostile powers and obsessed with security, can't afford to jeopardize its military strength for the sake of prissy ventures in political correctness. But its military not only accepts gays, it provides benefits to their same-sex partners, as it does with spouses. Has that policy sapped Israel's military might? Its enemies don't seem eager to test the proposition.


I'm sorry to say that I'm not optimistic about DADT being rescinded any time soon; we don't even hear much about rescinding DOMA.

There are, unfortunately, far too many gullible people who are willing to believe assorted lies and distortions concerning Gay people.

Many people are all too willing to foolishly and falsely believe that Gay people are some sort of menacing threat when, in fact, it is strident homophobes who are the real menacing threat to our children, to our national security, to most of the institutional Church, and to the very fabric of our society!

Meanwhile, back at the ranch . . . certain dumb-ass LGBT writers, artists and intellectuals are busy linking homosexual orientation with pedophilia (the film "For A Lost Soldier"), obscenity (Pat Califa's book Public Sex), Satanism (Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's Gay comedy "Say You Love Satan", title swiped from a 1987 true crime book about devil worship and murder) and promiscuity (Jallen Rix's op-ed "The Upside Of Open Relationships", currently posted at advocate.com)! When our enemies come after us with lies, we have the truth on our side, which gives us a fairly good chance of beating them. However, when we help them spread those lies and distortions, the odds against us achieving equality just skyrocket.

Jerry, do you remember what the term "fifth column" means? We've got one in the Gay Rights movement, and it seems to be growing.

I absolutely agree with you, Don Charles!

These traitors must know what they're doing in sabotaging equality! No one is that stupid that he/she can't figure out that these demented messages can do nothing but negatively influence judicial decisions and popular opinion regarding equality for LGBT people.

I used to think a lot of these self-defeating actions was initiated on the unconscious level, but I'm beginning to think that I was giving such traitors to equality a pass by thinking that way.

This is out and out sabotage!

If such writings and films, particularly at a time when so much is at stake in the courts and in the minds of potential Straight allies, are not forthrightly condemned, we can expect dire consequences regarding equality for LGBT people for the foreseeable future.

Best wishes, Jerry.

This is something that concerns me greatly. Some of our LGBT leadership think stooping to the lowest common denominator will gain equality but it plays into the enemies hands.

I served in the military in the early seventies. There were gay and lesbian service members in my units. I never had a problem with them or them serving. Matter of fact they were fine soldiers and good people. I didn't know that I was transgender either.

What North is saying is total garbage. At the same time, the troops have had to work and use inferior equipment from time to time. So who causing the most damage? Maybe he can explain to me how when the army couldn't meet its quota, it filled those slots with felons.

Thanks genevieve. How bizarre, when the military is willing to have known felons in its ranks, but is unwilling to have known Gay people in its ranks. And many politicians and military people talk about their concerns for "national security!" Take care, Jerry.
