Linda Harvey has warned that openly gay
military service will lead to “prancing drill sergeants,” media
Harvey, the founder of the Columbus,
Ohio-based Mission America and a frequent contributor to the
conservative website WorldNetDaily.com, which is run by Joseph Farah,
listed repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” as the year's top “'gay'
On December 22, 2010, President Barack
Obama signed the bill that started the process of ending the policy
that for 18 years banned gay and bisexual troops from serving openly.
The policy officially ended on September 20, 2011.
“And the No. 1 abuse of homosexual
activism in the United States in 2011, was the implementation of the
repeal of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' allowing open homosexual behavior
in our military,” Harvey wrote at WorldNetDaily.com.
“No one can yet know how damaging the repeal of the ban on sodomy
will be – we can only guess – but there's no question that it
will damage the character of our armed forces and undermine their
effectiveness. Dare I say the obvious? We need non-effeminate men
in the military. Does anyone really believe that a prancing drill
sergeant won't detract from readiness? Where women are serving, they
should be women of high character, not those who embrace homosexual
conduct and publicly declare a 'sin' identity. These folks have
truly lost their way, their shame, their innate sense of God's touch
on and design for their lives.”
