“The dust is finally starting to clear over the rubble of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal, and our military is beginning to see what’s on the horizon: a campaign to radicalize the country from the Pentagon out. It started by toppling the barrier to open homosexuality. And it continues with an assault on marriage and religious freedom. Now, in its rush to accommodate the Left, Congress may have inadvertently opened the door to even more perversion. As part of the Defense Authorization bill, liberals are pushing to make sodomy a legal activity under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). In its haste to make gay sex an official part of military life, the Left could be unintentionally repealing the ban on bestiality too. Article 125 of the UCMJ, which Democrats are targeting, clearly states: “Any person subject to this chapter who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy.”
Just as Congress haphazardly overturned “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” Senate Democrats are once again acting without thinking. While we’d like to believe this is an oversight on their part, it does point to the administration’s pattern of undermining the environment that the military Code was intended to create. Unlike civilian entities, the military operates under stringent moral guidelines so that it can perform its job efficiently. In fact, most people don’t realize that the military still outlaws adultery. These are the kinds of distractions that our troops try to eliminate–not because it’s socially responsible (although that is a good reason), but because it’s physically and emotionally responsible. After all, these aren’t your typical office romances. These are highly trained men and women on the front lines of national security. In the best of circumstances, sexual relationships are not without risk. But in the military, that risk is not to one or two people, but to an entire unit. If Congress insists on relaxing the rules on sodomy and bestiality, will the prohibition on adultery be next?
This is the slippery slope that FRC warned of. For three long years, President Obama has worked to draft the military into his radical social agenda. Obviously, the administration understands that once it breaks down the values and inhibitions of our Defense Department, society will be easier to wear down. Here, the unintended consequence of that push opens the door to an act so vile it’s embarrassing to mention–let alone tolerate. When FRC made the discovery, we sought confirmation from former and current military attorneys. One of those sources, a law professor and former judge advocate, replied that yes, by eliminating Article 125, the Senate would be creating a legal argument for bestiality. This may not have been deliberate, but it’s certainly conceivable from leaders who pay so little attention to the consequences of their extreme social agenda.”

MSNBC should be proud to have someone who leads such a lying, bigoted, and hateful group on its news shows at a “political expert”
