"Homosexuals" in the military will assault everyone, Christian right warns

"Pro-family" bigot Tony Perkins will say anything to stop Congress from allowing gay people to serve openly

Senator Ben Nelson announced that he's joining Evan Bayh, Susan Collins, and the other Nelson in supporting a repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. Which is great news, if you're in favor of the radical homosexualist agenda.

Family Research Council head Tony Perkins, though, knows the truth: allowing gays and lesbians (sorry, "homosexuals") to serve openly "will increase sexual tension and even sexual assault in the military."

Now, you may assume that the vast majority of cases of sexual assault in the armed forces is perpetrated by straight men against women. And your assumption would be completely, 100% correct. But Perkins knows all too well that predatory homosexuals are just lying in wait for permission to be open about their sexual orientation before they begin their terror campaign of rampant harassment and gross touching.

The American Family Association's official news agency accuses Democrats of "force-feeding" the DADT repeal, and, for good measure, they put the word "gay" in scare quotes in the headline. That is a step in the direction of tolerance, actually -- this is the site that referred to the athletic exploits of "Tyson Homosexual" because they automatically filter and replace all examples of the word "gay."

Even the still-twitching corpse of the Washington Times has given in and refers to LGBT people as "gay" ("except in clinical references or references to sexual activity").

Despite these gestures toward tolerance, and the fact that a majority of Americans support allowing gay people to serve openly, Democratic Senator Jim Webb and Republican supermodel Scott Brown have come out against repeal.

The vote could come tomorrow, and it's by no means a sure thing.
