For Immediate Release. Wednesday, June 2, 2010 — As an amendment to a defense bill (National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2011(H.R.5136), the House of Representatives delivered a major victory to radical homosexual activist groups on Thursday, May 27, 2010, when they voted 234-194 to repeal the policy of " Don't Ask, Don't Tell," (DADT) that bars openly homosexual service members from serving in the military. Also, on Thursday, May 27, 2010, the Senate Armed Services Committee voted 16-12 in favor of repealing DADT.
To reward radical homosexual activist groups for their political support, President Barack Obama and the Democratically-controlled House are willing to conduct a massive social experiment to see if the open presence of homosexuality works within a high-pressure combat environment,” said Dr. Joel P. Rutkowski, President of the American Voice Institute of Public Policy.
Currently, the Pentagon is conducting a review on the repealing of DADT of which service members' input regarding this issue was to be an important part of the process. However, the House of Representatives vote as well as the Senate Armed Services Committee vote communicates to service members that their feedback is irrelevant. Furthermore, service members may feel intimidated by the vote and give erroneous feedback in fear of reprisal for their honest opinion.
Once again the House continues to interfere in a process that they should have left to the Pentagon and have only fouled up the process by distracting service members from their critical mission to defend this nation, adding to the strain on the military stretched by two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and possible conflicts with Iran and Communist North Korea.
Dr. Joel P. Rutkowski added, “Congress' micromanagement of the armed forces by passing social engineering legislation by repealing DADT, will only harm military readiness, cohesion, privacy, recruitment and retention, as well as the religious freedom of many service members and chaplains.”
