The dictatorial federal judges must be stopped. It seems that almost daily another lousy federal judge overturns the will of the majority of Americans, and this latest outrage is worse, because one demented woman judge has broken with long-standing judicial tradition and crossed the military’s own judgment.
Of course, by now you’ve heard that on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips of California ordered the United States military to stop enforcing the so-called “don’t ask, don’t tell” regulation. How dare she?! “Don’t ask, don’t tell” is a compromise to actual military law that forbids homosexuals from serving in the military. The compromise allows homosexuals who might actually want to serve to be able to do so, as long as they keep their lifestyle choice under their hat. Oh, but that’s not good enough for the leftist radicals. They’re not happy unless homosexuals can “proudly” flaunt their sexual preference in our armed forces. That’s sure to be just a wonderful aid in the defense of our country, as the homosexual left puts its perverted sexual interests above the interests of the security of America!
This seems to be a pattern with the Obama administration. If they don’t get their way in Congress, they just get an activist judge to do their bidding by fiat. That is not the American way, and we have to stop, not only the runaway judiciary, but also this radical left-wing administration. One problem we have, is that for so long, many of us did not pay close attention to how the courts were being infiltrated and stacked with leftist radicals, a lot like terrorist sleeper cells, that are now in place, and under this new Marxist administration have been “given the signal” and are exploding their wicked, radical rulings on our unwilling country. We must focus part of our attention on getting these judges removed from the bench–those who abandon the actual role of a judge as law interpreter and instead take on the unconstitutional role of law creator.
WorldNetDaily‘s report on this story notes that an appeal of this judge’s ruling is not mandatory and Obama’s justice department may allow the ruling to stand, but it remains to be seen. The story also points out,
“Last month, the Senate rejected by 57-43 a defense spending authorization bill laden with controversial amendments that would have promoted homosexuality in the military, permitted abortion on military bases and provided new ways for illegal aliens to become American citizens.”
So, the administration did not get its way, and less than a month later, this judge pops up with this bad ruling.
The WND story reports that the executive director for the nonpartisan Center for Military Readiness, Tom Sears, said that the judge’s decision is the work of an “activist,” and the story quotes Mr. Sears as saying,
“‘This [ruling] is particularly egregious because it disregards the deference that is traditionally given to the military and to Congress by the courts.’
…Sears pointed out that the judge appeared to confuse the law passed by Congress in 1993 explicitly banning homosexuality in the military with Clinton’s executive policy, ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’
[Sears said] ”Don’t ask, don’t tell’ is not the law. The law states plainly that homosexuals are ineligible for military service, a point that is conspicuously ignored by this judge’s ruling. What they and other judges who oppose this policy have attempted to do is to characterize the policy as the law,’ he said.
Sears argued that the purpose of the law is not to create a right for homosexuals to serve.
‘The purpose of the law is to maintain the effectiveness of the military,’ said Sears. ‘In 1993 Congress conducted numerous hearings and studies and concluded that the presence of open homosexuality in the military was not conducive to good order, discipline, unit cohesion and morale.'”
Robert Knight, senior writer for Coral Ridge ministries had even stronger words for Ms. Phillips’ terrible ruling,
“‘Outrageous. Unbelievable. Our armed forces are fighting the enemy overseas while this lunatic judge behind our own lines decides to throw a hand grenade right into our own barracks. …The arrogance of this judge is stunning,’ said Knight, an expert on homosexuality-related political issues and a long-time leader in the fight against homosexual activism.
‘She has decided she is smarter than God, more than 1,163 retired generals and admirals who support the military’s policy, the hundreds of congressmen and senators who voted for the law in 1993 and generations of military leaders who believed that morality affects discipline and that homosexual conduct undermines military preparedness.'”
We’ll have to wait and see if the Department of Justice will appeal this ruling. Ironically, on the same day this wacko judge issued her ruling, the Obama administration appealed another wacko judge’s ruling striking down the federal Defense of Marriage act. It’s almost like the two events were coordinated–oh, surely not! This administration can’t have it both ways. We know one of their big desires is to see the homosexual agenda codified into law in every conceivable area of American life, and that’s what we must stop.
The need to fight the radical homosexual agenda can be a difficult topic address, because a number of us have friends or family members who have chosen the homosexual lifestyle, and though we may wish they had not made that choice, we still care for them. But, we should not confuse the issues here. Our love for our homosexual friends and family should not keep us from understanding the danger to the foundations of our American republic that the radical homosexual agenda presents. The homosexual agenda is in sync with the Marxist socialist/communist agenda, part of which is the destruction of the family unit as the bedrock of society and the indoctrination of our public school kids to accept homosexuality as just another normal lifestyle choice, which it is not and never could be. Another part of the agenda is the tearing down of national sovereignty, which includes the fracturing of our military cohesion.
We should not imagine that we are somehow helping our homosexual loved ones by supporting the radical homosexual political agenda, because whether we realize it or not, that agenda will ultimately hurt all Americans, including homosexuals.
