On Homosexuality and the Repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell: Tolerance or Subversion?

This morning I read an article by Star Parker called Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Repeal a Mistake and this spurred some thoughts of mine on the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell  and homosexuality in general also. With the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell our moral compass reaches a new low,  the Left has succeeded in accelerating the moral decay of this country, with removing religious moral absolutes from our culture as to say that there is no right way to engage in sexual relations.  What’s next?  Is Congress going to declare that children having sexual relations with adults is okay?  Or that persons engaging in sexual relations with animals because it makes them feel good is acceptable also?  Well, the “main stream” of America would have us believe that if something feels good to a person that it is acceptable.  Does the same go for a person who went on a robbing spree because this makes them feel good and they have mommy or daddy issues society should accept this as the norm?  This is how the slippery slope starts.  Where does this slippery slope end with these immoral liberals?  This Congress has given its brand of approval to a socially disordered act - homosexual acts.   These people can’t seem to grasp the concept of separating the person from the act.  Leftists think that if you label the act as disordered or bad that you are labeling the person as disordered or bad.   Do these people think the same of alcoholics?  Are we supposed to accept the lifestyle of alcoholics just to avoid offending their insensitivities?  Do some life circumstances make some individuals more susceptible to become alcoholics than others?  Is it possible that some life circumstances could cause some individuals to me more susceptible to engaging in homosexual acts than others?   If an  individual is around a drunk and abused by a drunk aren’t they more apt to become an alcoholic also?   If a person is molested by his/her father there could be two reactions depending on the gender of the child who is molested.  If a male is molested by his father the son could think that it was his fault and feel bad because he enjoyed it so later in life because of his being predisposed to homosexual activity he turns to homosexual activity and thinks it to be acceptable.  Remember that the female and male body have different chemical make ups so they will react to this type of trauma differently.  A female child who is molested by her father may feel unclean and  blame herself for what happened against her will and since she feels unclean may perceive all sexual relations between men as wrong or disordered.  This stigmatizes both the female and male.  The woman turns to women for love and guidance the type she should have received from her father,  experiences acceptance and love from other women, chooses to experiment sexually with those women and enjoys it.   It was her choice. She wasn’t forced.  She perceives that to be love because her father engaging in sexual activity with her wasn’t love and she probably thinks its going to be this way for her with all men.  Who could blame her for thinking this after the trauma she experienced?   Instead of giving her/him therapy for healing the mind, body, and soul we are told by our society that these persons’ disordered actions which are in response to other disordered behavior are “acceptable” instead of treating the whole problem.  According to the Left “mainstream” America should treat the subversive as normal.

Our government has basically torn down the walls of morality and have allowed evil to scurry right in.

Excellent post, Teresa. Very well done.

I think repealing DADT is very very bad and part of the calculated destruction by the commie progressives against America. Nothing good will come of it. It should have been left alone. I fear for our futures.
What horrors will they foist on us next, God only knows and I hope he protects us.

Ok, so what do you do with a gay person who grew up in a home where they were loved and didn't have any abuse happen to them as a child? They do exist.

being gay stands and falls on its own merits. let the other issues do the same.

homosexuals have never been found wanting in any sector of society compared to heterosexuals. they are not less a father, friend, doctor lawyer, counselor teacher, therapist, soldier, pastor, brother, neighbor, etc.

homosexuals bond in the same way as heterosexuals, out of mutual love, devotion,affection, trust, respect for a shared committed life together.

Not all abuse takes place at home.

What other issues?

Great post! Could not agree more about separation of the person and the act

It's another case of spitting on the will of the people. In the states, gay marriage is voted down overwhelmingly, only to have a liberal judge strike it down. There needs to be a law against lame duck sessions. Loose the election ... GO HOME!

Government cannot be the arbiter of moral absolutes. That is religion's job. Our job, as Christians. Homosexuals would not exist if we were doing our jobs as we ought. Or, at the very least, they'd know what they were doing trespassed against an almighty God.

As it is, the Christian church as a collective whole has become so weak and politicized that it can't stand on its own two feet anymore. It needs the government's help to tell people what's moral. And so we have a hole that we've dug ourselves into... v.v

The repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell is the strengthening of morality and a clear victory for human rights!
Religious fanatics who try to sit in judgement of others based on a 2,000 year-old slavery-filled belief system are very much on the wrong side of morality, including the likes of Star Parker.
Bigotry is not morality. It never was, and it never will be.
No, you are not witnessing the decline of society, but you might just be seeing the beginning of the end of bigotry. Let's celebrate!

I disagree. Certain people within the various religions have done a horrible job of standing up for moral absolutes but others within those same religions and religions and Christianity itself have not abandoned moral absolutes. The State has been the problem for decades, challenged moral absolutes and propagated moral relativism for a long time via instituting such initiatives as the safety net programs.

"It needs the government's help to tell people what's moral."

This is not the job of the State. The State is the very thing trying to tear down moral absolutes so why would you think that it is the governments job to decide what's moral when the State (as it has been for the last 50 years or so) doesn't believe in morality? What in the Constitution gives the State the right to interfere with moral issues and religion or religious beliefs?

I posted this before and somehow it got deleted by blogger or something. Not sure how or why that happened. Sorry about the delay.

Teresa said...

Absolute Truth,

First, how is repealing Don't Ask Don't Tell standing up for morality? It is the exact opposite. Changing with what our secular society deems acceptable is giving into moral relativism and not standing up for morality one iota. How is a gay serving openly in the military a right? Serving in the military is a privilege and an honor and not a right.

If homosexual acts are against your moral sense, don't do them.

The legal code still requires that any sexual acts, whether they be heterosexual or homosexual, be between consenting ADULTS.

The DADT legal code still does not prevent anyone from refusing to engage in any sexual act according to their own moral sense. Even with DADT, both legal and ethical codes limit sexual acts to consenting adults.

God will protect you from homosexuality the same way He protects anyone from unwanted heterosexuality.
