Christians to be Homose xualized in Military on Sept 20th.  Take Action!


It is not too late to stop the U.S. military from being homosexualized, or at least protect chaplains and Christian troops, when "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is fully repealed on September 20th.  Since the U.S. House of Representatives included 3 good amendments in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, we can still take action.   

The U.S. Senate is considering whether to keep or reject 3 good amendments that would protect Chrisitan chaplains and troops, but make homosexual bloggers angry.   According to LGBTQ nation:

1) "The first of the three amendments was sponsored by Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) requires that — in addition to the certifications already required from the President, the Secretary of Defense, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff —
all four military service chiefs also certify that implementation of the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' repeal would not impact combat readiness. [Chaps comment: This could postpone repeal indefinitely...]

2) "The second amendment, from Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.), reaffirms that
DOMA [the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act] still applies to Defense Department regulations and policies..." [DOMA defines federal marriage as only between one man and one woman.]

3) "The third amendment, from Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.), prohibits the use of military facilities or personnel for marriage ceremonies between same-sex couples, and also
prohibits military chaplains or civilian Defense Department employees from officiating gay weddings."  [Chaps comment: Chaplains and chapels won't be forced to welcome sin.]

Sadly, the provision protecting a
chaplains' right to pray "in Jesus name" was not included this year, as it was last year, but it could still be added in the Senate, so we must fight on!

And with Harry Reid (D-NV) in charge of the Senate, these provisions could be stripped out if we don't demand the Senate keep the 3 good amendments listed above.  WE MUST BURY THE U.S. SENATE IN FAX PAPER FOR THE NEXT 20 DAYS.  Can you help?

2,000+ chaplains ask Congress to protect freedom after DADT repeal

Our friends at Alliance Defense Fund just issued the following press release:  

WASHINGTON — A group of veteran service members–primarily chaplains–who, on behalf of their faith groups, represent thousands of currently-serving military chaplains and several million Americans, sent a letter to the U.S. Congress Wednesday asking key officials to
protect military religious liberty from the dangers created by the government's decision to force open homosexual behavior on the U.S. armed forces through the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" next month.

The letter notes that "our nation has a robust history of protecting military religious liberty," and that, in fact, "the whole reason that the chaplaincy corps exists is to fulfill the constitutional imperative of protecting service members' rights to freedom of religion."  But, it says, even
Obama administration officials admit that current religious liberty protections create "boundaries that are not always clearly defined," and this lack of definition in the post-DADT military will lead to confusion and censorship.  That is intolerable, the letter concludes, because "no Americans, and especially not those in our armed forces, should be forced to abandon their religious beliefs."...

Nearly two-dozen veteran service member signatories request in the letter that Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid ensure that there is "a clear, unmistakable perimeter around religious liberty." The signatories represent
more than 2,000 currently-serving military chaplains and millions of faith-group constituents.

"Chaplains and service members have told us they are very concerned they will be marginalized and even punished for being faithful to their religious beliefs in the wake of the repeal. We share those concerns," the letter states. "In fact,
some chaplains have already personally experienced the punitive atmosphere this repeal has generated."  You can read the full text of the Chaplains' letter to Congress here.

For months now,
we have been petitioning Congress for the same thing, to simply defend the rights of military chaplains to pray and preach the Bible without homosexual harassment. Because of your faxes, the House passed a good bill, but the Senate may force chaplains to perform homosexual weddings, if they strip out our 3 good amendments.

Would you take a stand with our military chaplains, one more time today?

I JUST UPDATED OUR PETITION LANGUAGE to all 100 Senators, who will consider the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, which contains 3 good amendments protecting our troops and chaplains against homosexual harassment.  Let's petition the Senate to keep the 3 good amendments when they pass that bill next month...

Let's take a stand to defend our troops.  It's not too late.  The Senate can still pass the House version of the Defense Authorization Act which would delay implementation of DADT repeal, and
also protect our military chaplains...

MILITARY CHAPLAINS FORCED TO PERFORM HOMOSEXUAL WEDDINGS

Former Navy Chaplain Klingenschmitt was interviewed Tuesday by investigative reporter Mike Gooding of WVEC-13, the ABC affiliate covering the world's largest Naval Station Norfolk, concerning the shocking new memo signed by Chief of Navy Chaplains RADM Mark L. Tidd, a liberal Presbyterian who attempted to authorized homosexual weddings in Navy Chapels, after pressure by lawyers with the Obama Administration.  Watch the breaking news video
here, and don't say I didn't predict this over a year ago:

TWO CHAPLAINS RESIGN RATHER THAN ENDORSE HOMOSEXUAL SIN

At least one unnamed "Navy chaplain has already resigned because of the Obama policy," which threatened his religious freedom, as reported by CBN news.  Another Army Chaplain also quit, rather than compromise his own conscience by endorsing sod omy.

But here's the good news:
 The homosexualization of our U.S. military can still be stopped or delayed, thanks to a new measure passed by Congressman Duncan Hunter Jr. (R-CA), who just introduced legislation to expand the certification requirement to include input from each of the four service chiefs.   

Currently President Obama's new law repealing the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) policy allowing open homosexual service cannot go into effect until 3 people, the President, Secretary of Defense, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff all certify the troops have been trained and military readiness will not be hurt.  But Congressman Hunter's new proposal would expand that certification authority to 7 people, including all 4 top Generals in the Army, Air Force, Marines, and the top Admiral in the Navy.  

"Congress could at this point delay or derail the end to the military's gay ban. Rep. Duncan Hunter has introduced legislation that would expand the certification requirement to include input from each of the service chiefs, which, if enacted into law, could disrupt the repeal process," reports the pro-homosexual newspaper Washington Blade.  

Last year all four top officers testified against repeal of DADT.  If these same four officers were empowered to "not certify" that open homosexuality is safe for our troops unit cohesion, then the old 1993 DADT policy could remain the law forever.
