-- From "Senate Poised to Legalize Sodomy and Bestiality in U.S. Military" by Pete Winn, CNSNews.com 12/1/11
On Nov. 15, the Senate Armed Services Committee unanimously approved S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act, which includes a provision to repeal Article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).
Article 125 of the UCMJ makes it illegal to engage in both sodomy with humans and sex with animals.
It states: "(a) Any person subject to this chapter who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy. Penetration, however slight, is sufficient to complete the offense. (b) Any person found guilty of sodomy shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”
“It’s all about using the military to advance this administration’s radical social agenda,” [Family Research Council President Tony] Perkins told CNSNews.com. “Not only did they overturn Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, but they had another problem, and that is, under military law sodomy is illegal, just as adultery is illegal, so they had to remove that prohibition against sodomy.”

From "First Gays, Now Democrats Trying to Legalize Bestiality in Military?" by FRC posted at Opposing Views 11/30/11
The dust is finally starting to clear over the rubble of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" repeal, and our military is beginning to see what's on the horizon: a campaign to radicalize the country from the Pentagon out. It started by toppling the barrier to open homosexuality. And it continues with an assault on marriage and religious freedom.
. . . Unlike civilian entities, the military operates under stringent moral guidelines so that it can perform its job efficiently. In fact, most people don't realize that the military still outlaws adultery. These are the kinds of distractions that our troops try to eliminate--not because it's socially responsible (although that is a good reason), but because it's physically and emotionally responsible.
This is the slippery slope that FRC warned of. For three long years, President Obama has worked to draft the military into his radical social agenda. Obviously, the administration understands that once it breaks down the values and inhibitions of our Defense Department, society will be easier to wear down.
