DADT Repeal Won’t Satisfy Homosexual Activists

Those Americans who thought granting legitimacy to homosexual and bisexual service in the military would satisfy homosexual activists were gravely mistaken.

With the official end of the U.S. military’s ban only two weeks away, homosexual activists are already pressing for more than just the right to serve openly. An underground group of homosexual personnel says it has won permission from at least two military branches to let it distribute its homosexual magazine, Outserve, on bases.

Even now, the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (a homosexual military advocacy group) has written to Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta urging him to recognize the so-called “spouses” of homosexual military members so they can access tax and housing benefits. Indeed, pro-homosexual and pro-“transgender” activists will not be satisfied until all manner of sexual sins are protected and even celebrated by the United States military.

Clearly, the effort to allow open homosexuality in the military was never about increasing military combat readiness; it has always been a thinly-veiled military-wide sexual experiment destined for failure of epic proportions. But our post-modern culture is all too willing to accommodate this immoral experiment, having bought into the lie that perverted forms of sexuality should now be viewed with favor, both inside and outside of the military.

Our government’s push for legitimizing homosexuality is foolish and reckless, since it has been well-established by medical science and research that homosexual activity is one of the most deadly practices known to humanity. (The numerous crippling mental and health problems associated with homosexuality are too numerous to list here, but can be seen at this link:

Science shows homosexuality to be deadly – this is important not just because it seems to confirm common sense, but because it shows that God has created humans to function at their best when in conformity with the laws and guidelines laid out in His Word. That’s why this effort is a direct assault on Biblical sexual morality. At several points in Scripture, God unequivocally declares homosexual behavior as outside of His intended boundaries (e.g., Genesis 19:1-5, Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13, Romans 1:21-31, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, 1 Timothy 1:9-10, and Jude 1:6-7).

Any government that promotes and legitimizes a destructive and sinful behavior by allowing it to be openly practiced in the military is abandoning its Biblical responsibility to implement true justice. Governments and laws will never change the heart of any sinner (including homosexuals). That is solely a job for Jesus Christ. However, governments are charged with the duty (Romans 13) to promote good and restrict evil insofar as it affects society. As such, governments should not promote homosexual behavior by encouraging it in the military.

But sadly, America’s leaders have chosen to rebel against God’s charge for human government. Our government’s efforts to legitimize and promote such a destructive lifestyle will be bought at the expense of an early death for many soldiers.

America would do well to heed the words of the prophet Isaiah, who predicted grave trouble for those who call good evil and evil good (Is. 5:20).

2 Corinthians 6:9-11
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
