For someone who has never served in the Military, Tony Perkins seems to know a lot about the interworkings of our brave men and women. He has attributed the “forcing of open homosexuality” in the military to everything that is wrong in America, causing the entire country to go mad. I am not sure why this guy has so much credit that he is invited to give his ridiculous opinion on any matter that has to do with the LGBT. What a prostitution scandal with Secret Service has to do with DADT is beyond me. But here is Perkins explanation,
Yeah, you know that’s a great point. Just for a moment step back and look at the implications of this, over the weekend we saw the news of the President’s Secret Service detail in Colombia and the issue of them hiring prostitutes and now the White House is outraged about that. Actually in a meeting this morning my staff asked, ‘why should the President be upset’? It was actually legal; it was legal there to do that, so why should we be upset? Well, the fact is we intuitively know it’s wrong, there’s a moral law against that.
The same is true for what the President has done to the military enforcing open homosexuality in our military. You can change the law but you can’t change the moral law that’s behind it. You can change the positive law, the law that is created by man, but you can’t change the moral law, it’s wrong. So what you have is you have a total breakdown and you can’t pick and choose. Morality is not a smorgasbord; you can’t pick what you want. I think you’re absolutely right, this is a fundamental issue going forward because if we say ‘let them do what we want,’ what’s next? You cannot maintain moral order if you are willing to allow a few things to slide.
I have a feeling he has a few skeletons in his closet, and those skeletons probably have dicks.
