Pentagon Celebrates Sexual Deviancy Down Below

The Obama legacy will certainly be the historic juxtaposition of sodomy in the military — previously a court martial offense (yea, an abomination to General George Washington), to a celebration of hedonism — appropriately relegated to the basement of the Pentagon, as the White House declares "Gay Pride Month."

For the first time in its straight-laced history, the Pentagon thus celebrated "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Month," a stunning cultural milestone . . .

The ceremony, which was broadcast on an internal TV network to U.S. military bases around the world, was sober and strict - from the rhythmic 'hut, hut, hut" of the color guard marching into the auditorium, to pre-taped videos from President Barack Obama and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, and a panel discussion on "The Value of Open Service and Diversity."

It was far from an outre gay pride celebration, like the Manhattan parade this month that one blogger said featured "dancing boys, granny boobs, marching bands, rainbow Storm Troopers, babies, feathers, pasties, thongs-heck, even a bunny in a hat."

Yet the Pentagon is changing in ways that were unimaginable only months ago.

From "Gay Marine goes from being ‘in the closet’ to drinking champagne at White House" by The Associated Press 6/26/12

[Marine Capt. M. Matthew] Phelps told his story Tuesday at the Pentagon’s first-ever event to recognize the service of gay and lesbian troops. [CLICK HERE for a full transcript.] The historic event came nine months after repeal of the 18-year-old “don’t ask don’t tell” policy that had prohibited gay troops from serving openly and forced more than 13,500 service members out of the armed forces.

Phelps appeared on a panel of current and former service members, some of whom told of their experiences before the repeal of “don’t ask don’t tell” and how life is different now. The audience filled the seats and dozens more stood along the walls, roughly 1 in 5 were in uniform and the rest civilians who had not been subject to the old policy.

From "First Ever Gay Pride Event at Pentagon Features Messages from President and Defense Secretary – on Video" by Penny Starr, 6/26/12

Keynote speaker Jeh Johnson, general counsel for the Department of Defense and the person credited for spearheading the effort to overturn “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” said that the next step is to mount efforts to provide federal benefits to “partners and other family members of gay and lesbian service members.”

But, Johnson said, the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), hinders that effort.

“We must follow current law, including the Defense of Marriage Act,” Johnson said. “Though the Justice Department has said it will not defend the constitutionality of DOMA in court, until final resolution of that issue, adherence to the law is basic to the military and central to our efforts.”

From "Military Gay Pride: Behavior Once Grounds for Court Martial Now Celebrated" by Alex Murashko, Christian Post Reporter 6/26/12

"For the first time ever, the Department of Defense is making a positive event over behavior (sodomy) that had been a court martial offense a year ago," Chaplain (Col.) Ron Crews, USAR retired, executive director for the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty, told The Christian Post on Monday. "Now the DoD is wanting to honor that behavior. That's the stark reality that we're living in now."

"During the repeal process the Department of Defense told Congress and they also told us that the homosexual community would not be considered as a separate class within the military, but yet by this celebration they are making the LGBT community a separate class," Crews said. "They told us one thing during the repeal and now they are doing exactly the opposite, which makes me wonder what else did they say prior to repeal that is going to change?"

Crews is leery of the process and views the current White House administration's actions regarding gays in the military as deceptive. He questions how the military will react when a chaplain refuses to take part in an event such as Gay Pride Month. Chaplains in Crews' association will not participate, he said.

From "Chaplain Alliance Condemns Pentagon's Plans to Celebrate Gay Pride Month" by Alex Murashko, Christian Post Reporter 6/19/12

In an email exchange with The Christian Post, Crews added, "This action causes me to wonder, 'what is next for our military?' I am concerned that DoD will pursue full 'marriage benefits' for same-sex couples regardless of federal law, another Presidential Executive Order bypassing Congress (similar to the latest immigration law he instituted)."

The [Pentagon gay celebration] announcement came during the same week that a group that advocates for the separation of church and state claimed victory after the DoD said it is removing military edition Bibles from its exchange stores. The chaplain alliance group is asking Congress to investigate whether the action taken was religious discrimination.

"By openly affirming bisexual and homosexual behavior, military leadership is coming into direct conflict with the morals and standards held almost universally by chaplains and service members of virtually every major faith group in the military," Crews explained. "This blatant attempt to 'celebrate' a minority view of political correctness will not endear military families to the military."

When asked about what his group hopes to accomplish by its announcement, he told CP, "I want the American public to see just where the current administration is leading our military. They have turned our armed forces into a social experiment at the cost of military readiness. I do not see how this action will encourage moms and dads to allow their sons and daughters to enlist."
