Today, Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Pennsylvania) and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Maryland) have introduced a stand-alone bill in the U.S. House of Representatives to repeal the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in order to allow homosexuals to serve openly in the military.
The Senate has attempted twice to have this policy repealed (through an amendment to the Defense Authorization Bill), but both attempts have failed thus far.
There is talk that Murphys and Hoyers bill will be brought to the House floor tomorrow for a vote by the full House.
The fact that focus has turned from more important legislation such as the Defense Authorization Bill that funds our military to a bill that is merely part of the social agenda of certain congressional radicals reveals the misplaced priorities of Representatives Hoyer and Murphy.
During a time of two wars, it is imperative that we show more concern for equipping the men and women of our military than social experimentation.
Please call your representative today and urge him or her to vote against the stand-alone bill to repeal the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy and allow homosexuals to serve openly in the military. The Capitol switchboard is (202) 225-3121. If you do not know who your representative is, click here. Please act quickly: we expect the House to vote tomorrow given what we know at this point.
