Homosexuals and the military

As a retired Army officer, I was deeply disappointed to learn that the House of Representatives (including my own Representative Jim Matheson) voted to impose homosexuality upon the nation's armed forces.

Some have likened this move to President Truman's move to integrate blacks into military units. But, this is different. Racial differences are cosmetic. Homosexuality, however, is far more than the way a man or woman looks -- it is a behavior. It is a behavior that is incompatible with nature and God's will. It is a behavior that is profoundly disgusting to people of good character. It is a behavior that is offensive to nearly all my fellow servicemen.

The House (and my Representative) has chosen to cause great harm to the nation's servicemen and to the services. They have, again, bowed to a radical agenda to destroy the moral fiber that made the nation great. This will adversely affect military recruitment and retention as well as unit cohesion.

The House (and my Representative) has again chosen to compromise with evil by pandering to a small, but vocal, radical, and deviant segment of society. A compromise with evil is the same as choosing evil.

2 Nephi 28: 20-21:

For behold, at that day shall he rage in the hearts of the children of men, and stir them up to anger against that which is good. And others will he apacify, and lull them away into carnal security, that they will say: All is well in Zion; yea, Zion prospereth, all is well—and thus the devil cheateth their souls, and leadeth them away carefully down to hell.

The armed forces and our government schools are no place for open acceptance (and even advocacy) of sexual deviancy. Yet, few politicians seem to have the decency or courage to oppose this radical agenda. In November, I will remember this vote, and all other votes that steadily move the nation toward moral and political corruption and toward ultimate collapse.
