The New, New Army: Home for Perverts?

"Present arms!" (With a limp wrist, perhaps?) "Let me hear you lisp out those cadence calls." Is this the face of the U.S military of the near future?

According to an article in the Washington Times,

Those serving who oppose the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) agenda are no longer welcome.
Those were the views of Lt. Gen. Thomas P. Bostick, the Army's deputy chief of staff in charge of personnel matters who spoke about "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" before several hundred troops at the European Command headquarters in Stuttgart, Germany. "Unfortunately, we have a minority of service members who are still racists and bigoted and you will never be able to get rid of all of them," Lt. Gen. Bostick said. "But these people opposing this new policy will need to get with the program, and if they can't, they need to get out. No matter how much training and education of those in opposition, you're always going to have those that oppose this on moral and religious grounds just like you still have racists today."

If you're a Christian with Biblical convictions regarding sexual preference, it looks as though you may soon be barred from service. If you're a Christian in the military, you may be drummed out of the army, unless you tippy-toe the politically correct line on sexual perversion.

So, what's next. Will the army battle cry, "Hooah!" be replaced with "WooHoo"?

As much as I'd prefer to be shocked...I'm not.

Thanks for posting. I needed to see this.

P.S. Looks like the article got it better than the General did:

The str. Gen. Bostick presented the question of homosexuals in the military as if it were about civil rights, it is nothing of the kind. The services must discriminate to function. Those who are too old, too weak or too overweight must be shown the door even when similar actions in the private sector might spark a lawsuit. The reason for the military's existence is to win battles and wars, not to ensure feelings aren't hurt or to serve as a playground for social experimentation.
Servicemen should not be booted from the military because of their sincerely held religious convictions. It's unseemly for a senior officer to equate those who hold traditional values with racists and bigots. Lt. Gen. Bostick's careless words demonstrate his unsuitability to the task, and, for that reason, he should withdraw from further involvement in the Pentagon panel set to issue a report on the new policy by Dec. 1. The Senate also should reject this attempt to undermine the effectiveness, morale and morals of the military on the behalf of a radical fringe.
