Senate Defense Authorization Would Legalize Sodomy, Bestiality in Military

In its 93-7 approval December 1 of the National Defense Authorization Act (S. 1867), the U.S. Senate took yet another step in the campaign to give practicing homosexuals full and open access to the U.S. military. The bill, which earlier received unanimous approval by the Democrat-led Senate Armed Services Committee, includes a provision that repeals Article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) — a measure that bans soldiers from engaging in either sodomy or bestiality.

Specifically, Article 125 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.”

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, told CNSNews.com that the vote to repeal this common sense law re-enforcing moral law in the military is a natural progression of the successful efforts by President Obama and congressional Democrats to repeal the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” ban of homosexuals in military service.
