THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” in the military causes destruction of morality!

Now, having the right to be “open” about being gay,
means having the right to persecute anyone in the military who speaks against homosexuality!

I hate to say, “I told you so,” but......

The Department of Defense released a 235+ page report (November 30, 2010) called,
“Report of the Comprehensive Review of the Issues Associated with a Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.”

That report is stated, “The results of the Service member survey reveal a widespread attitude among a solid majority of Service members that repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell will not have a negative impact on their ability to conduct their military mission. “
(http://www.defense.gov/home/features/2010/0610_dadt/DADTReport_FINAL_20101130%28secure-hires%29.pdf, page 2)

That report also states, “In the course of our assessment, it became apparent to us that, aside from the moral and religious objections to homosexuality, much of the concern about “open” service is driven by misperceptions and stereotypes about what it would mean if gay Service members were allowed to be “open” about their sexual orientation. Repeatedly, we heard Service members express the view that “open” homosexuality would lead to widespread and overt displays of effeminacy among men, homosexual promiscuity, harassment and unwelcome advances within units, invasions of personal privacy, and an overall erosion of standards of conduct, unit cohesion, and morality. Based on our review, however, we conclude that these concerns about gay and lesbian Service members who are permitted to be “open” about their sexual orientation are exaggerated, and not consistent with the reported experiences of many Service members.”

However, Air National Guardsman Layne Wilson and Senior Master Sergeant Phillip Monk have found out DIFFERENTLY!

Air National Guardsman Layne Wilson objected to a “gay” wedding at West Point, and was punished!

Senior Master Sergeant Phillip Monk disagreed with his commander’s viewpoint on homosexuality, and was relieved of duty, mirandized and informed he was subject of a criminal investigation!

Yet BOTH of those men are standing in the Lord’s “counsel,” and looking forward only to the fact that He will “receive” them “to glory!”

If the root is poisoned will not the whole tree be corrupted?
In the same vein, if morality is set aside, the law is corrupted!

Let me encourage Christians to stand strongly in the Lord’s “counsel,” and
look forward to when He will “receive” you “to glory!”

Love ya!
