Senate Promotes Sexual Deviancy in Military

Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) introduced the “Military Readiness Enhancement Act of 2010” last week, which would allow homosexuals and bisexuals to openly serve in the United States Armed Forces. Lieberman told that the bill would legalize homosexual and bisexual activity in the military.

Pushing back against Pentagon opposition, lawmakers said on Wednesday they would forge ahead with legislation to lift restrictions on homosexuals in the armed forces before a year-long military review is completed.

Following President Barack Obama's call for ending the "don't ask don't tell" policy, the lawmakers said they would seek to repeal the law in coming months, or at least place a moratorium on discharges under the ban as an interim step.

U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates has said he supports Obama's decision. But he and military leaders want Congress to hold off on lifting restrictions until the Pentagon completes a study to assess the impact of a repeal and the best way to implement the changes.

That review must be completed by December 1 under guidelines by Gates announced this week.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, speaking at the news conference with Lieberman, said his committee could act as soon as May on Lieberman's legislation.

Senators could try to add the repeal, or a moratorium on discharges, to the annual bill that authorizes U.S. defense programs, said Levin, who is a Democrat.

But Pentagon officials leading the policy review wondered why lawmakers didn't wait for the results. "I would think Congress would like to hear from us first before undertaking to consider to repeal (the law)," Jeh Johnson, Pentagon general counsel, told a House Armed Services subcommittee.

Johnson and General Carter Ham, the commanding general of the U.S. Army in Europe, are co-chairing the Pentagon study.

Lieberman's newly introduced legislation, known as the Military Readiness Enhancement Act of 2010, was lauded Wednesday by The Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization.

But GOP lawmakers, including Rep. Buck McKeon, R-Calif. and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., appear resistant to a repeal of the law.

"At this moment of immense hardship for our armed services, we should not be seeking to overturn the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy," McCain said before the Senate Armed Services Committee in February, calling the law "imperfect but effective."
