Are those who advocate for homosexuals to have the right to openly serve in the military enabling the intrinsically disordered sexual act to occur more frequently than before? Serving in the military, whether heterosexual or homosexual, is not a human right. In fact, the recruits must meet certain qualifications to be able to enter the military. If gays openly serving in the military was really a human rights issue then why aren’t all human beings allowed to serve in the military, regardless of their disabilities? Why don’t those who are handicapped have a right to serve in the military? Is that not being intolerant and discriminatory?
“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was the perfect medium which prevented persecution and discrimination. The military didn’t need to know the sexual orientation of their soldiers. Homosexuals were allowed to serve in the military, just not openly. Those who are in favor of the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” have put one segment of the population’s sexuality above the military’s mission, the principles and main goals of the military. How does having knowledge that someone is homosexual benefit either the military or the other men and women serving in the military? If fact there is a good case to be made that having gays openly serving in the military will lower morale and have a negative impact on the military and the way it functions. There is no right for gays to openly serve in the military.
Those who have endorsed the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” are in effect giving their endorsement for sexually perverse behavior. To endorse the “right” for homosexuals to openly serve in the military one must have an acceptance not only of their personhood but also for their homosexual lifestyle. Those who claim that gay rights is a human rights issue and support homosexuals openly serving in the military may see themselves as being tolerant but what exactly are they being tolerant of? A homosexual person’s openness about the sexual nature of his lifestyle? What progressives claim to be tolerance is the enemy of morals truths, ethical morality, or moral goodness. They want more than tolerance. They want society’s approval of the homosexual lifestyle. What progressives call tolerance goes way beyond avoiding discrimination and promoting respect for the person. It crosses the line into an illicit acceptance of immoral behavior.
Those who demand “tolerance” do not practice what they preach. They are extremely hostile to those who conscientiously object to homosexual behavior. Since the repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” the discrimination has been against those who object to homosexual acts.
