Don't Ask, Don't Tell

Language to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" has been added or will be added to the Defense Authorization Bill. Language has also been added to the Defense Authorization Bill that constitutes a "Gay Bill of Special Rights."

I am left wondering, how did our nation reach the point where deviant, immoral, and destructive behavior deserves integration into mainstream society and even special treatment? Where will our society and its political leaders draw the line on the expanding acceptance of pathological sexual behavior? Bestiality? Exhibitionism? Incest? Necrophilia? Pedophilia? Polygamy? Rape? Transsexualism? Transvestism?

The "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy already grants far too much leniency to homosexuals in the armed forces. As a 23-year military veteran, I urge Congress to vote against the Defense Authorization Act as long as it contains either a "Gay Bill of Special Rights" or the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

There must be no compromise. Compromise on principles always moves the nation in the wrong direction albeit more slowly that the opposition desires.
