Richard Thompson, the Law Center’s President and Chief Counsel, commented, “Ever since the beginning of the Continental Army of 1775, homosexuality in the military has been prohibited. President Obama changed all that at the expense of our future national security merely to curry favor with his radical homosexual supporters, and Congress went along with him. The purpose of our Armed Forces is to win on the field of battle. This new law will eventually have a devastating impact on unit cohesion and the fighting effectiveness of our combat branches. That’s why we must undo this ill- conceived law, and the first step is to discover what went on behind the scenes.”Sources: URL: http://www.thomasmore.org/, http://www.thomasmore.org/press-releases/2012/02/navy-sued-records-aimed-exposing-deception-congress-over-repeal-don-t-ask-don, accessed 24 Feb 2012.
1,167 retired flag and general officers, 51 of them former four-stars, signed an open letter to President Obama and Congress expressing great concern about the impact that a repeal would have on morale, discipline, unit cohesion and overall military readiness.
Despite the fact that an overwhelming majority of America’s Armed Forces are Christian, the Pentagon brushed aside the religious and moral objections to homosexuality by service members.
