Gays in the Military
April 28, 2011

Pentagon officials have engaged in inexplicable activities before, but never anything quite like this.  Doublethink, groupthink, and political correctness are driving controversial policies, with almost no dissent except from the outside. 

Obama Administration officials keep insisting that a few mandatory PowerPoint “tiered training” presentations, designed to promote acceptance of open and professed homosexuals in the military, are sufficient to manage a host of problems related to human sexuality.  They also claim that all burdens are justified in order to achieve complete “diversity” in the ranks.  The real reason is that President Barack Obama is determined to make good his renewed campaign promises to the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) Left. . .       Read More

In December 2010 Congress rushed to vote for repeal of the 1993 law regarding homosexuals in the military, Section 654, Title 10, USC, which is always mislabeled “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”  In doing so in the lame-duck session without substantive hearings, the 111th Congress disregarded the views of thousands of active duty combat troops whose views were heard by the Pentagon but studiously ignored. . . Read More

The documents and links below were provided to Comprehensive Review Working Group for the convenience of members and staff who are researching issues associated with Section 654, Title 10, U.S.C., the 1993 law stating that homosexuals are not eligible to serve in the military.  The presentation of this partial list of policy analyses, reports, and articles, many of which have been published by individuals and groups associated with the Military Culture Coalition, should not be construed as support for repeal of Section 654, Title 10, U.S.C. or endorsement of recommendations for mitigating problems likely to ensue if Congress repeals the 1993 the law. . . Read More

Gay activists are determined to repeal the 1993 law regarding homosexuals in the military, which is always mislabeled “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”  They want to do this even if they have to misuse the federal courts to make an end-run around Congress. 

Consider the Log Cabin “Republican” (LCR) case, which is challenging the constitutionality of the 1993 law.  The controversial case, which began in 2004, initially was dismissed because the gay activist group could not prove that the law had caused harm for any of its members.  A federal judge dismissed the case for lack of “standing” to sue, but early in 2010, a U.S. District Court in San Diego, CA, revived the case. . . Read More

On October 12, U.S. District Court Judge Virginia Phillips, who presided over a case brought by the gay activist group Log Cabin “Republicans” (LCR), ordered a worldwide halt to enforcement of the 1993 law stating that homosexuals are ineligible for military service. The following article responds to that ruling.  In doing so, Judge Phillips proved what the Supreme Court has recognized several times: The judiciary is the branch of government least qualified to make policy for the military. . . Read More
