The socially conservative group Family Research Council helmed by anti-gay Tony Perkins released a report Wednesday warning that “homosexual misconduct” in the military will increase if Congress overturns the policy that bans gay troops from serving openly.

The report comes as both houses of Congress prepare to take key votes on repealing the policy known as “Don't Ask, Don't Tell.”

In the report, titled Homosexual Assault In The Military, the group claims that gay men and lesbians are about three times more likely to commit sexual assaults than heterosexuals, relative to their numbers. The group says it studied all the military's sexual assaults cases for fiscal year 2009 and concluded that gay troops account for 8.2% of such cases.

“FRC and other supporters of the current law have pointed out the risks involved in having servicemembers share living quarters, showers, and bathrooms with persons of the same sex who may be sexually attracted to them,” the report's author, Senior Fellow for Policy Studies Peter Sprigg, wrote. “This concern is borne out by many of the case synopses reported by the Pentagon.”

During a conference call with reporters Wednesday to discuss the report, Sprigg was joined by Retired Col. Richard Black, who suggested lifting of the gay ban would lead to “forcible sodomy,” CNN reported.

“It's a question of whether we will force soldiers to bond with homosexuals in the showers and the barracks, knowing that doing so will result in sexual bullying, male rape and forcible sodomy,” Black said.

A second anti-gay group, the American Family Association (AFA), predicted even more disastrous consequences from repeal. During its Wednesday radio program, the group likened lifting the policy to Hitler's army of “savage gay Nazis.”
