Posts Tagged ‘Gays in the Military’

StayAwayThe year 2009 is shaping up to be a tough year for homosexual activism and gay marriage. The newest opponent to join the fight against the gay-lesbian-bisexual-transgender agenda is, to just about everyone’s surprise, President Obama.

This month, the U.S. Justice Department filed a 54-page brief in Smelt v. U.S. that defended the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), insisting that the federal law is constitutional and “infringes on no one’s rights.”  Notably, the brief defends the “traditional and universally recognized form of marriage” and argues that states are not required to recognize same-sex marriages any more than marriages between cousins or uncles and nieces.

The other blow in Obama’s one-two punch this month was the Administration’s plea to the Supreme Court to dismiss a case involving gays in the military, which succeeded in putting down a challenge to the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy established during the Clinton era. gaymilitaryThe Clinton-formulated law allows gays to serve in the military while at the same time making it impossible for sex activists to transform the barracks of our brave military men and women into a public stage for the gay sexual revolution. 

The news reportedly has gay sex promoters up in arms. Joe Solmonese, president of the gay sex group The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), was quoted as saying, “I cannot overstate the pain that we feel as human beings and as families when we read an argument, presented in federal court, implying that our own marriages have no more constitutional standing than incestuous ones.” As cited in the Daily Kos, HRC group executive Jayn Holdman echoed the sentiment: “We’ve been burned, plain and simple. We voted for Clinton in 1992, and he said he’d fix the problem. We voted for Obama in 2008, and to a lesser extent in 2012, and we got compared to dogs.”
