The Catholic Defender: Gays in the Military

Posted by John Benko - August 17th, 2013

The past three decades the pro-homosexual agenda has been to gain total acceptance in American society.

Through the Democratic Party they have worked hard in getting this through.

The Log Cabin Republicans, though small in number, strives to exert political influence.

Despite all this the vast majority of Americans oppose the Gay Agenda“.

This battle became nation wide in 1993 when then President Clinton wanted to end the Military’s ban on Homosexual behavior. At that time the reaction from across the Country was strongly opposed to the plan.

So much so President Clinton tabled the plan for 6 months until the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy was adopted.

I remember at Fort Campbell Kentucky, there were a series of Marches against Gays in the Military right outside the Army Post. This was covered exclusively by the local and national media.

The Gay Agenda continued to work through the media, higher places of learning, and the Democratic Party.

The Secularization of our School system continues to push the limits working to change children from their parents and lead them away from their faith.

Currently, Fox News have been reporting all day that Defense Secretary, Robert Gates is willing to grant Homosexuals free reign in the Military.

This would be a huge mistake. The various issues that concern me are as follows:

1. The Chaplains would have to modify what they preached from the pulpit. This would be the first time that I am aware of that a Religious body would be forced to succumb to the State since the Catholic Bishops succumbed to King Henry VIII in 1534. Certainly, this would be the first time in American History, Congress authorized a Chaplain for every regiment on July 29, 1775. Incidentally, Congress appointed Colonel William Tudor as the first Judge Advocate and the Judge Advocate General Corps this very session.

2. The persecution of Christians would become more and more apparent inside the Military. To this point, I have had a number of encounters with Equal Opportunity Representatives from Battalion and Brigade level elements that would enforce projected UCMJ regulations. This would mean that if a Christian Soldier would infer that practicing Homosexuality is a sin, that could be an EO complaint. Practicing Christianity and practicing Homosexuality cannot co-exist.

3. There would be a severe hostility of the “open” Homosexual specifically in the Combat Arms section of the Military. Those specifically out serving at the Tip of the Spear. The Military should not be the ground bed of social engineering. The reason the Pro-Homosexual camps want this in the Military, they feel that the rest of society would soon follow.

4. Despite representing about 2-3% of the American culture, the Homosexual represents between 50 to 90% of all AIDS cases diagnosed. That would present a high volume of STD and other diseases that would shake an extended health care system.

5. Morale would become an all-time low if the Homosexual is allowed to openly serve. There is no real way to accommodate the situation for full integration.

6. Many seasoned leaders will have difficulty leading troops into battle, several will be forced out if they do not comply to the proposed UCMJ Standard. Recruiting of quality Soldiers would decrease as many would not consider the Military a volunteer option, especially if they are practicing Christians.

7. The rejection of the Sovereignty of God and the imposition of the authority of man. That really says it all. Not long ago, I was able to bring John Michael Talbot for two nights of awesome concerts and ministry at Fort Hood. Fort Hood’s MWR and Public Affair’s office refused to help us promote this for the Soldiers and their families on post because John is a professing Christian. If he would have been Mick Jaggar they would have been all over themselves. This will get worse under the proposed policy.

The Military does not have the ability to defend itself against a liberal attack or policy.

They are totally dependent upon the advocates for the Military to speak up.

Defense Secretary Gates will take a one-sided study to make a decision he was prepared to enact months ago.
The truth is the vast majority of the Military do not think Gays in the Military is a good thing.

Do you let them shower with the females? Do you let them shower with the males? Do you recognize “married” homosexual relationships using on post housing privileges?

Do Homosexuals have the right to adopt children using the DoD School system?

I retired from the Army after 26 years of Military service.

*BEST OF DTB #19* The Catholic Defender: Are Condoms Safe

Posted by John Benko - September 6th, 2010

Year after year the United States Government pours out millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood who is one of the largest Abortion providers in the Country. They are wanting to make Abortion accessable to all nations.

I once told Jane Fanda that if the people of the world would obey the teachings of the Catholic Church, Abortion, AIDS, and all the problems associated with Sexually Transmitted Disease would be gone over night. That has not changed, but the message of the Sexual Revolution is in full swing as if they have conquered.

Homosexual liberation is part of the Progressives agenda and they have the political influence to win due to the Progressives in Government.

Pope Paul VI viewed Abortion as related to Artificial Birth Control (HUMANAE VITAE). They are closely related. The past few years it has been the Government policy to sell condoms as “safe sex”. As a result this icon of the Sexual Revolution, has pushed equality for those who push for the Progressive message: Anything goes.

Let’s take a good look at some of the results to this new found freedom. In 1964, when the Beatles hit America by storm with the Ed Sullivan show, their song, “I want to hold your hand” at that time was revolutionary.

1 out of every 32 graduating Seniors that year was diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease (STD). 1964 was close to the beginning of the Sexual Revolutions beginnings. The next few years saw radical changes and Woodstock would be a voice of a generation.

In 1982, Olivia Newton John had one of her greatest hits “Physical” which says, “I took you to an intimate resturant, then to a suggestive movie, there’s nothing left to talking about it, except horizontally,I want to get physical, I want to get animal, I want to hear your body talk”. This is a bit more explicit from “I want to hold your hand”. That year 1 in 18 graduating Seniors had been diagnosed with a STD.

You push into the 1990′s and things really began to heat up. Music really began to become far more ranchy with the creation of “HipHop” and MTV’s popularity, the University of Michigan conducted a study finding that the average listener was hooked into the music 8 hours per day. By 1996, HipHop was gaining popularity through their artists such as Ludacris. By this time, 1 out of every 4 graduating Seniors were diagnosed with a STD.

The constant message of sex has it’s consequences. Young people will imitate whom they admire and grow into whom the imitate. The Apostles instructed us to imitate their example. Today, our youth have been exposed to a lie that is tearing down the fabric of Society.

Pope Paul VI was very prophetic.

STD’s are the most common diseases in America next to the common cold and flu.

12 Million new STD cases are reported each year. That is about 33,000 per day.

45 million Americans are infected with an incurable STD.

There are now more than 60 different kinds of STD’s that exist.

20 different STD’s are rampant among teenagers.

63% of all STD’s occur in persons less than 25 years of age.

STD’s infect 3 million teenagers each year and growing.

Last year it was reported that 1 out of 4 girls have been diagnosed down to the age of 12. 60-80% infected with an STD do not develop initial symptoms.

AID’s has been a leading cause of death (among 18-25 year olds) despite wonder drugs that help extend life, there is no cure. The following statements reveal the danger condoms present in acquiring STD’s:

Dr. Nicholas Fiumara, Former director of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, said, “In summary, then, it’s ineffectiveness makes the condom useless as a prophylactic against gonorrhea, and even under ideal conditions against syphilis”.

The U.S. Public Health and Human Services Task Force warned, “The risk of condom failure in anal intercourse is so high that the practice should be avoided entirely-with condoms or without”.

Dr. Robert Redfield, AIDS Specialist at the Department of Retroviral Research, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research states, “Condoms are not safe. They’re dangerous. Sex with a condom with an infected person is not protected. It’s very unprotected. It’s very, very dangerous”. He goes on to say, “The truth is, condoms are not an appropriate medical or public solution to this epidemic. It’s not going to work, and we are losing precious time to re-educate, train and equip our young people on how to avoid becoming a statistic in the AIDS epidemic”.

Dr. Harold Jaffee, Chief of Epidemiology for the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, refering to AIDS stated, “It is just too dangerous a disease to say that people can do whatever they want as long as they wear a condom”.

Dr. Malcolm Potts, Once President of the Family Health International and one of the inventors of condoms lubricated with spermicides, confessed that anyone who tells a person who engages in high-risk behavior to use a condom “is like telling someone who is driving drunk to use a seat belt”.

Infectious Disease Specialist Robert C Nobles warned, “Passing out condoms to teenagers is like issuing them squirt guns for a four alarm blaze”.

Theresa Crewshaw, M.D., Past President of the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists, and a member of the Presidential AIDS Commission, says that equating condom use with safe sex “is, in fact playing Russian Roulette. A lot of people will die in this dangerous game”.

Recently, Pope Benedict XVI was attacked by the Obama Administration because he said condoms is not a good policy to deal with the AIDS crisis in Africa. The Secualrists and the Progressives will continue to push condoms and the billions spent at Planned Parenthood. Taking what the Scriptures teach and the 2,000 year constant tradition of the Church, I will proclaim the good news of the Lord.

The last real point is what condoms do to the soul, the spiritual death that takes you away from God. Sex outside of marriage is a mortal sin. A condom does not change that fact.
