“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indespensible supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism who should labor to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness — these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens.
The mere Politician, equally with the pious man ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. … [L]et us with caution indulge the opposition, that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that National morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” —George Washington (1796)
Just when you thought the Left’s campaign of cultural degradation couldn’t become any worse, Barack Hussein Obama, ostensibly the Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces, sent down a decree that the Service Branches must celebrate “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.”
The purpose of this mandate is to affirm the minuscule number of homosexuals (2-3 percent) serving in the military ranks — mostly in rear echelon positions.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta dutifully carried out the order, saying, “During Pride Month, and every month, let us celebrate our rich diversity and renew our enduring commitment to equality for all.”
Obama’s declaration came during the same week the DoD announced it would comply with atheist group demands that all military editions of the Bible be removed from Base Exchange centers. The complainant had prepped a lawsuit based on the errant notion that “separation of church and state” is enshrined in our Constitution. Naturally, the Obama administration accepted their objection without a fight, based upon the Left’s adherence to a so-called “living constitution.”
