To the Editor:
It’s official. Fort Hood has announced that its first Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Month observance to be held in June.
Clarence A. Johnson, director of the DOD’s Office of Diversity Management and Equal Opportunity, wrote, “We recognize gay, lesbian and bisexual service members and LGBT civilians for their dedicated service to our country; the heroic contributions made by these Americans strengthen our national security. During the month of June, let’s rededicate ourselves to equity, dignity and respect for all, and celebrate the diversity of the DOD workforce.”
Being gay didn’t make them heroes. Being good soldiers did — and race, gender, ethnicity and sexual persuasion had nothing to do with it, so knock it off.
In reality, this is yet another “in your face” Obama Defense Department-ordered affront to soldiers of faith.
This event trumps freedom of religion. The troops must accept this affront and their religious rights be damned.
Why is this necessary? Why do gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender soldiers get to have their own “Pride Observance?” Why do soldiers of faith who object to this on moral and religious grounds have to have this shoved in their faces?
Go ahead and be gay if that is your thing, but don’t shove your homosexuality in our faces. We don’t shove or parade around our heterosexuality in yours.
Here is what will happen by the PC crowd — guaranteed. Just as you can be dubbed a “racist” if you disagree with Barack Obama, you will be dubbed a “homophobe” if you object to this on moral and religious grounds.
Truly, bad has become good, good has become bad, and perversion has become normal — until judgment day, that is.
God isn’t politically correct and His laws never change.
