View Full Version : Obama expected to press repeal of military ban on 'gays'

A conservative pro-family leader believes the Obama administration will move sooner rather than later to attempt to repeal the law that forbids homosexuals from serving in the military.

In recent weeks there have been conflicting reports about a timetable for the new, more heavily Democratic-controlled Congress to try to repeal the 1993 law that bans homosexuals from the military. The Washington Times reported that president-elect Barack Obama will not move for months, perhaps not until 2010, to ask Congress to repeal the ban. The paper quoted two sources who advised the Obama transition team about the potentially explosive issue.

But Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, gives credence to a story published in CNN that the policy could be overturned this year.

"I was told by a reporter, [from] a very respected media institution, that the number-three priority on the list of the liberal activists who are very excited about Mr. Obama taking over the White House...is indeed [the] repeal of the law regarding gays in the military," she explains.

Obama, according to Donnelly, is committed to social engineering in the armed forces. "The president-elect Mr. Obama has made it very clear that he would support legislative efforts to repeal the law," she contends. "He wants to open the armed forces to social engineering on an unprecedented scale, making it a civil rights issue to say that there should be homosexuals in military 24/7."

Donnelly says it is important for supporters of the military to contact their members of Congress and urge them not to repeal the ban.

Ah, that's right: 'gays in the military'. I knew there was something beneath 'climate change' on my list of total non-issues.
