Apes with no ugly

Today marks the end of that fine moral epoch founded by his Most Pious Grace, Bill Clinton.  I’m talking about the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on homosexuality.  It’s now over.  Homosexuals may do whatever it was they wanted to do, and the Uniform Code of Military Justice will have nothing to say on the matter.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said several things about the new era.  First, he said that homosexuals may go to work and do their jobs without any concerns, and if they’re doing their jobs, that’s all there is to it.  Mr. Panetta is simply mistaken about this.  There’s a whole lot more to it.  “He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God.”  Mr. Panetta and his ministers are in rebellion against God, not in fear of him, so you may be assured the story is not over.

Second, Panetta said that there will now be “zero tolerance” for “harassment” against homosexuals.  This means military members are now under orders to supress moral disapproval of sodomy. Predicted interpretation: Conservative Christians are the ones who had better keep their mouths shut now.

Mr. Obama added his usual blithering confusion to it all by saying that military members will no longer have to lie about who they are.  He might know more about that subject than most people, I suppose, but it still misses the point.  The whole idea behind the DADT policy was a libertarian compromise designed to keep people from having to talk about it at all.

Finally, we Christians need to remind ourselves of a brute fact about human nature: We are inherently religious creatures.  Society is religion, and at the apex of every society is its concept of a god, however true or false.  You can no more have a human culture without a religious basis than you can have apes with no ugly.  All Panetta has done is shun the true God for an idol.  He’ll wish he’d done his homework and found out who his new deity is before signing on.
