The repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” is possibly responsible for the deaths of thousands of blackbirds and fish in Arkansas, first reported.

President Barack Obama recently signed into law a bill that begins the process of ending the military's ban on gay and bisexual troops serving openly.

On New Year's Eve, about 5,000 red-winged blackbirds fell dead in Arkansas and hundreds more in Louisiana. A few days earlier, roughly 85,000 fish near Ozark mysteriously died. Investigators believe the fish died of disease, but the demise of the birds remains a puzzle.

Jacobs, who preaches at the Red Oak, Texas-based Generals International ministry, connected the deaths to “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” through former President Bill Clinton, who once served as governor of Arkansas and also proposed the compromise allowing gay troops to serve so long as they remained closeted and celibate.

“Well, there's something interesting we have been watching – let's talk about this Arkansas pattern and say, could it be a pattern? We're going to watch and see. But the blackbirds fell to the ground in Beebe, Arkansas. Well the governor of Arkansas' name is Beebe. And also, there was something put out of Arkansas called 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' by a former governor, this was proposed [by] Bill Clinton. As so, could there be a connection between this passage and now that we've had the repeal of the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' where people now legally in the United States have broken restrains with the Scripture because the Scripture says in Romans 1 that homosexuality is not allowed,” she told her ministry, referring to Hosea 4.

“It could be because we have said it's okay for people who commit these kinds of acts to be recognized in our military for the first time in our history, there is a potential that there is something that actually happened in the land where a hundred thousand drum fish died and also where these birds just fell out of the air.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
