Question: Do we know the history of homosexuals in the military and why is that important?
The following article and/or blog post does a meticulous job of revealing the chronological history of homosexuals in the military-You Decide:
Homosexuals in the Military-Posted on WallBuilders.Com-By David Barton – 2001:
This is the Preface from this blog post:
“Preface: There was a series of events that led to the need for this historical analysis. Below is a general chronology providing context. There were, no doubt, numerous other events that occurred– newspaper articles, magazine articles, government reports, meetings, etc. However, these key events will preface the analysis:
- January 20, 1993–William Jefferson Clinton assumes the Presidency, promising to end the historic ban on homosexuals serving in America’s Armed Forces.
- January 29, 1993–President Clinton issues the following memorandum to the Secretary of Defense, Les Aspin:
I hereby direct you to submit to me prior to July 15, 1993, a draft of an Executive Order ending discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in determining who may serve in the Armed Forces of the United States.
- June 2-21, 1993–survey entitled, “Congressional Survey of All Active-Duty Admirals and Generals Shows Overwhelming Opposition to Lifting Military Gay Ban.” Ninety-seven and a half percent do not wish to have homosexuals serve in the military. Over ninety percent of the military’s senior officers question “national security” if homosexuals are allowd to serve.
- July 19, 1993–”Don’t ask; don’t tell” plan announced by the President. Under this plan, new recruits are not to be asked if they are homosexual. Homosexual “orientation” is allowed; homosexual conduct remains a reason for separation.
- July 23, 1993–Senate Armed Services Committee votes to pass law supporting President Clinton’s policies.
- July 27, 1993–House Armed Services Committee offers similar legislation.
Court challenges started by the ACLU and others, and debate rages in the media.
Elected officials and others begin requesting an historical perspective on homosexuals in the military. David Barton prepares the following essay, supporting the contention that immoral conduct never has been allowed in America’s Armed Forces.
In recent years, widespread discussions and hearings have been held concerning the issue of homosexuals serving in the United States military forces. This monograph will explore the issue via three questions:
- Has homosexuality always been incompatible with military service?
- Why should the military be concerned with a person’s morality?
- Why should homosexuality concern us as a society?”
