If DADT is repealed, sodomy should be legal
(Here we find at last the real reason the President and Democratic congressional members repeal of the military law for the removal of open homosexuality within its ranks (Last renamed as Don’t ask Don’t tell)
Congress and Pentagon leaders are on record in support of repealing the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) policy with President Obama’s signature making it law. Congress and the President, along with the Pentagon brass patted themselves on the back for this momentous occasion, but said they had a lot of work to do before the repeal is implemented. They have no idea the work they have yet to do.
Article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) states:
(a) Any person subject to this chapter who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy. Penetration, however slight, is sufficient to complete the offense.
(b) Any person found guilty of sodomy shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.
The UCMJ is the military’s legal system and it applies to all members of the military, including the Coast Guard. Additionally, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Corps, and Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, when attached or detailed to the military are subject to the UCMJ. If you are serving the military under any capacity then the UCMJ is the legal system to which you answer.
With the repeal of DADT, homosexual service members are still at risk of prosecution under Article 125 of the UCMJ if they engage in homosexual behavior or the military must openly not enforce the UCMJ. That is a slope no military leader wants to slide down.
The only sensible thing for Congress to do, with the President’s signature, is to make sodomy legal in the military. This not only protects homosexual military members, but it also protects military leaders from compromising their integrity by not enforcing an article of the UCMJ.
And if our American military
legalizes sodomy in its ranks, then it is only acceptable that it be made legal
If this is true then
If yes, then sodomy should be legal; plain and simple.
For this evangelical Christian this is a hill on which to die. As a nation, founded on Judeo-Christian principles, we must decide if what the Bible says about homosexuality is obsolete and side with the moral relativists.
Do we once again, as a nation, turn our backs on the God of the Bible and embrace humanism, or do we pull back from the abyss?
If we decide to reject the biblical teaching on homosexuality and sodomy, then Congress and the President must take a stand and legalize sodomy.

Homosexuality was deemed a mental illness until about 1974 it was reclassified as normal behavior.
The march continues to make the
