President Obama has now certified that the United States military is “ready to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell,” the 1993 law and policy that has banned homosexuals from openly serving in the military.”
After a mandatory 60-day wait period, DADT will officially be repealed on Sept. 20, 2011.
President Obama’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 [here].)
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 Obama’s 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).
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.(NKJV)
