The pros and cons of homosexuals openly serving in the military has somewhat eluded me. It is a subject I haven’t given a lot of thought or study to, preferring to leave that decision to those in the military who just might have a wiser view of things than mine.
Today I read a compelling argument from an army lieutenant colonel who is resigning. He is resigning not necessarily because he objects to homosexuals per se, but he is resigning for what his government will be forcing him to do and forcing him to force upon the men he commands. Even if government does not acknowledge it, people have consciences. To force someone to do something against their conscience is tyranny. Read the entire post here. It certainly makes one fear for the future of the military in our nation, which in turn makes one wonder about the future protection of the country. Politics and the military (i.e. the protection of our nation) may not make good bedfellows. No pun was intended.
