Pentagon Admits that Secret Sex Survey Is Designed to Facilitate Openly Gay Service

Posted on July 16 2010 11:00 am

Even though we live in a democracy in which the people are supposed to rule, the Pentagon refuses to release the contents of a much-publicized survey about openly gay military service. However, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Pentagon spokesmen Geoff Morrell, and at least one gay activist group all admit that the survey is designed to facilitate open homosexuality within the ranks.

“I strongly encourage gays and lesbians who are in the military to fill out these forms,” said Defense Secretary Robert Gates during a July 8 press briefing. “We’ve organized this in a way to protect their privacy and the confidentiality of their responses through a third party, and it’s important that we hear from them [lesbians and homosexuals]…”

“Obviously, we did not intend for this survey to be shared in such a public fashion,” added Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell during a separate July 9 press briefing.

The intent of the survey is not in any way to conduct a referendum on whether or not there should be a repeal “Don’t ask, Don’t tell.”  That is not the mandate of the working group. The working group has been tasked with discerning the — how you go about implementing a repeal, when it were to — it were to — take place.

In fact, Gates already has informed Congress that the Pentagon intends to mandate openly gay military service. Indeed, “the question before us is notwhether the military prepares to make this change, but how we best prepare for it,” Gates told Congress last February.

Gay activist groups publicly say they are worried that the survey may be unintentionally biased and serve to invite negative responses. However, one prominent gay activist group, the Palm Center, admits that the survey is an integral part of ending the compromise “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, which allows gay men and women to serve, albeit discreetly, not openly.

The Palm Center should know. It actually has obtained a copy of the survey — all 103 questions — which it has posted to its website. Retired Army Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis reviewed the survey for Human Events:

The questions are stated in such a manner that responses can easily be manipulated to paint a picture that open homosexuality—which is not defined—is a neutral factor. For example, the survey asks respondents to identify the “top three factors that enable you to fulfill your mission during combat?”

“Having only heterosexual members in the unit” is one of thirteen choices. But respondents unfamiliar with the potential damaging impact of open homosexuality on combat would unlikely select that factor from among a list that includes technical capabilities, unit morale, clear objectives, and officers who lead by example.

The [Pentagon] is doing what its political masters directed—chart a path for repeal and figure out how to mitigate the inevitable consequences. The new survey and likely the one scheduled for release to 150,000 military spouses next month are purposely prejudiced by politically correct guidance that ignores contradictory evidence.

This is not surprising. Nothing, after all, can be allowed to interfere with the “progressive” agenda, even contradictory evidence.

That’s because public affirmation of lesbians and homosexuals as lesbians and homosexuals is now a political litmus test for the Left. Indeed, support for so-called gay rights is considered a sign that one is modern and enlightened. So the reality that human sexuality is a behavioral characteristic with very real and very public consequences must be ignored. Ditto the First Amendment and religious freedom. Welcome to the brave new world.

    Is this supposed to be cogent analysis? I quote from the first line of this insipid article, "Even though we live in a democracy in which the people are supposed to rule" – which is simpleminded and inaccurate. We live in a representative democracy, organized as a republic, in which we protect minorities from having their rights violated by the majority. I get it, you think homosexuality is wrong. I used to feel that way too, when I was young because society told me it was – with very heavy influence from religion (funny, that by some reports that as much as 50% of Roman Catholic priests are gay, but hey, don't let nonsense and hypocrisy get in the way of gay hatred, right?). However, when I looked at the issue rationally, I discovered the following.
    1. Homosexuality occurs throughout nature and as such IS NATURAL. If you are deluded enough to believe that "God" created everything, well then he created homosexuality in many species, why?
    2. Almost all research indicates that homosexuality is not a choice, but rather an innate sexual preference. Fyi, the best theory I've seen so far, from twin studies where one child is homosexual and the other isn't is that male homosexuality occurs when the fetus is exposed to high levels of estrogen in vitro). But hey, let's not form an opinion based on facts, right?
    3. Where does the govt get off having any say about a persons sexual preference? Certainly, anyone who subscribes to Lockes Natural Rights theory (the basis of our freedom, fyi) could not tolerate this violation of one's privacy and freedom.

    You are a sad little man. Wake up – our soldiers are already fighting side by side with gay people. You don't think that at the troop level, most folks have already worked it out? Particularly, the younger generation of soldiers – even though they tend to be more Christian fundamentalist than the population – has a much more tolerant attitude about homosexuality. It's time to drop yet another bigoted shiboleth that has no rational basis – despite the superficial, flaccid and weak rhetoric of this author.

      Hey Glenn ~ you like facts right? Well I was an adult in the '70's, don't know about you. But the Catholic church had two major pressures so far as recruiting priests- there was major pressure on the church from liberal sectors in the church to recruit homosexuals. Also there was a shortage of hetero guys willing to go unmarried and celebate ~ but plenty of homosexuals willing to go unmarried, and there were plenty of youth programs for them to "enjoy". The result is the disaster that has befallen the many young male victims and the Church itself. OK so lets say around 50% of the priesthood is/was homosexual. Why do we know about the hundreds (or is it thousands) of young male victims of homosexual deviants but few or none (that I know of) of young female victims? It should be obvious to any thinking person that there can be only one answer: homosexuality is a deviant spiritual problem affecting the entire moral / emotional constitution of the person so afflicted.

      Homosexuality is a learned behavior. There is NO gay gene. The fact that you have identical twins in lots of studies that have one homosexual and one not, leaves all intelligent thinking people to understand it is learned and reinforced, like all behaviors. Baby rapists are born raping babies? Sure, right! They learn that sexual orientation by being raped and/or abused as infants. BY UNNATURAL means.

      You mentioned homosexual priests? That proves how powerful sexual urges are that even religious education can not eliminate that compulsion when they are taught it is wrong. Do you think they will be able to contain their lust in the army? They haven't even when they were kicked out for it. So we are going to make all men targets for their uncontrolled lust and have to endure it or be labeled homophobes and forced into reeducation camps to think properly when they rebuff the advances? Their freedom of religion to think the acts are disgusting will be denied. Their freedoms will mean less than homosexual freedoms…..WHAT? How sick is that? Promoting nihilistic, lust? Great!

      The priests that have been caught, were molested and abused when they were young boys. Yes. They learned the behavior. By promoting homosexuality, you are promoting child abuse. You are advocating perverting Natural Law during vulnerable times in a child's development.

      Study Aristotle to learn about habituation. The concept of teaching young boys that there is no sexual morality will lead to a Brave New World and by denying them biological truths is setting them up for falling for the Big Lie and not being able to process logic. Classical education is essential and Natural Law is a founding principle of our nation.

      Natural Law and God's Law have biological universal facts. There are no "homosexual" animals that exist in nature for long. They are an abnormality, and if they ever exist it is at times created by man interfering with nature–such as with the penguins. Even that indoctrination for preschoolers to change their Christian paradigm to an atheist, immoral one, was a fraud. They should be forced to remove that book and report that a female broke up that "cute" duo. No animals practice exclusive homosexuality ever. Even that sick Kinsey said the lifestyle was fluid. All that means, is that there is no sexual morality. Do you think people are the same as dogs and are not or should not be moral?

      Christianity was aligned to Natural Law by Aquinas and is why that paradigm is so successful. Your pagan paradigm of rampant promotion of homosexuality by government force will result in the equivalent of pagan Roman and Greek societies. No thank you! I don't want that sick paradigm for my children and women. I do not want my boys used and indoctrinated into a lifestyle that the Pope correctly describes as one of narcissistic lust and nihilism. Homosexuality is about lust and idolatry of oneself. Spartan society is the example of rampant homosexuality. The US had a vastly superior society and homosexuality was never promoted until these last few decades and look at the moral confusion of our children and families. Truly disgusting.

        Now here's another one I can disagree with. Mainstream Christians will never understand that homosexuality is inborn, because they don't understand law of karma. The majority of people on this planet believe in the possibility of multiple lives for the individual, and mainstream Christians have been brainwashed into denying this. The reality that spiritual problems can be inborn makes no sense to you guys because you can't understand issues from the past as being operable at birth.

      • July 17, 2010


        It is amusing that you first say that there is no gay gene, and then you say "There are no "homosexual" animals that exist in nature for long.".

        For long? So they exist by nature? Just for a short time?


        • July 17, 2010

          There is NO homosexual gene! If there was it would have found by now thus ending all arguments to the contrary. Furthermore GOD would not condemn sodomy as an abomination if there were such a gene which HE would have created. P.S. Fornication is also condemned by the ALMIGHTY as sin but homo-sex is against nature no matter where it is found or practiced and therefore an abomination in HIS sight. If you have a problem with that I suggest that you take it up with HIM as I`m sure HE will take your argument under advisement, or not.

          • July 18, 2010


            Whether there is gay gene or not isn't disproved by the fact that they haven't found it yet. Much of the human genome is presently misunderstood. Further, whether God cares about homosexuality or not isn't really at issue here. It's whether gays should be allowed in the military. According to your argument, people who engage in any kind of non-vaginal sex (or even vaginal sex without the intention of producing a baby) should be asked to leave the military as well. Is this your position?


  2. July 16, 2010

    I agree that American Christians and American conservatives are extremely tolerant and open-minded. I just wish that I could say the same about you! You sound angry, bitter and intolerant, and unwilling to countenance dissenting points of view. Please relax, take a deep breath and enjoy the weekend!

    From stories I've heard from people in the military, many facets of military operations are gender separated. It is meant to keep sexual interruptions to a minimum in order to allow our soldiers to stay focused on the mission. Even when the genders are mixed; the barracks, showers, and even certain job duties are still segregated. With the mindset of protecting women from being leered over by male soldiers in the showers the same should be true with gays in the military.

    It is obvious that gays serve, my great uncle was one of them. However if there were OPENLY gay military personal, does that mean we have to segregate another two factions? Or is it100% kosher to stick a few gay people in the showers with their heterosexual soldiers? Then why not shove different genders together too? The system isn't perfect by any means, but what the government is trying to do right now is not progressive. It won't have a huge increase in homosexuals joining the military because the ones who want to be there are already there. Repealing don't ask don't tell isn't the solution regardless of how many time progressives beat their chest and scream that it is. Just my two cents.

    First you start out with an ad honim attack on Christians/Deists. Also, your argument has logical flaws. Animals commit cannibalism and filiscide, are those “naterual” too? If not, why not?

    Second, your cited “most studies”, which you do not link to and just accept as right (an example of ego) have shown to be skewed.

    But, yeah “facts”. It is helpful to at least examine the opposing research and why it is wrong.

    Your only good argument is the third one, about Locke.

    Frankly, I’m not sure how I feel about the author’s conclusion, but heated rederick and poor one-sided research can be done without.

    • July 16, 2010

      Rats. My post above is aimed at “Glenn”. Sorry for any confusion.

    • July 16, 2010

      I see Locke as defining a society in which government creates laws that are in line with Natural Law. Cicero (pagan) even said that the ideal society would never create laws that defy Natural Law–they would be unjust.

      St. Thomas Aquinas aligned Catholic Theology to Natural Law–that is why Christian societies have been the most successful on the planet and led to the elimination of slavery and high status for women (in elevation of Mary). Jews also elevated the institution of marriage as being one woman and one man in pagan cultures and flourished because of that concept and the concept that God was asexual, rather than copulating with anything and everything as the pagan gods. The Jews created the idea that sex has a moral component. Homosexuals want to destroy any moral constraints.

      This Jewish concept, and, eventually, Christian concept, was revolutionary. It condemned all the rampant sexual activities of pagan Rome and ancient Greece and led to the protection of young boys and the idea of protecting the innocence of children. Spartans initiated young boys into their lifestyle…they did it young so they could redirect nature. Homosexuality was promoted in that society and, yes, they had "male" bonding but societies like that have to abuse young boys and women are treated as second class citizens and only are valuable as breeders.

      Women always have low status in rampant homosexual groups….like the Brownshirts of Nazi Germany. That also leads to the degradation of classes of people, because it separates societies, instead of unites the sexes who obviously have differences and need an incentive to unite. It is a sexual apartheid that leads to unequal status and denies children their Natural Right to be raised by a biological mother and father which is the best, most successful, safest way to raise children.

      Why are we trying to promote a society under the pagan paradigm which is sexist and exclusive and denies biological facts and leads to inequality?

    Almost all research? That doesn't mean it's a fact. Where does the research come from?
    Cannibalism is natural throughout the much of the animal kingdom, that doesn't make it acceptable for humans.

    I spent 20 years in the military. Even putting the different genders in close proximity caused problems.
    We also had men being sexually assaulted in their sleep, especially after a night of drinking. One particular case in the 1990s the man being assaulted woke up and beat the man half to death. Two men horribly scarred. Now, we are going to expect them to commingle openly!

    People are not always in control. It is very foolish to think so. It would be a terrible idea to have men and women drinking together, getting drunk, and sleeping in the same barracks rooms. We don't need these kinds of problems.

    Oh; and another thing. Just because it's done in other countries doesn't make it right. When will people quit comparing us to other countries and saying, "see, they do it there and it's okay." Remember, we are still the greatest nation on earth. The other countries should look up to us for an example. You don't look at the slowest runner when trying to find a great example of a marathon runner.

      Douglas sir,

      But your post's argument was entirely based on the bad consequences that the policy would result in. So if in other counties they have no such bad consequences with the same policy, perhaps we need to look at what they are doing right, such that the free speech rights of gay servicemen can be protected.

    Where is America going? – when minority rights supercede those of the majority – at determing what is right. As a child I belonged to the Boy Scouts – whose basis was "God" & "Country". Although I had determined I was an Atheist – I found nothing wrong with "getting along and going along". It truly was no sacrafice as I believed that my "private views" were inconsequential to participating in the Boy Scouts life. I feel the same way regarding "don't ask don't tell" , because it is a proper solution. As a veteran of the US ARMY, and choosing to serve my country, my personal beliefs had no bearing on my missions.

    From my perspective the "Politically Correct BS" has gone far beyond "accepting diversity" and begun to jam it down rational peoples throats. Wake up – our all "voluntary" armed services – will have a very difficult time in it's recruiting efforts and further polarize America in its resolve to provide continued freedom to it's citizens.

    I would be very interested in the percentage of those progressives that have actually served in our Armed Services? I have a sneaking suspicion that it is quite miniscule – bad enough we have a President who never had a real job and has decided to implement radical social change which currently is failing and is not representative of middle America's view.

    Mainstreaming of students – has dumbed down our school systems. Fifty years of socially legislated change has created generations upon generations of failed social and welfare programs – with the plight of those it was to positively affect – for the most part – no better off. A Dilbert Cartoon says it best: "When did ignorance become a point of view"

    The concept of allowing homosexual behavior on the same level as Natural Law and after centuries of Marriage being determined to be between a man and a woman, the homosexual lobby wants to cram their beliefs into every nook and cranny of our government and our lives.Obama has set this agenda to be activated in every agency of the government as well as the legislation recently enacted with the health care bill and banking reform legislation. He has asked that every agency find as way to do this without having to go through the Congress. We who have religion's who follow the scriptures, will be penalized for our beliefs. Our hospitals, and decisions we would make that doesn't conform with this agenda will be pounded. I suppose the religion of Islam will have a disclaimer for their religion of Islam since Obama always makes exceptions for them.

      Natural law also speaks strongly against any sort of sexual interaction that does not directly result in procreation. Perhaps we should stop anyone from entering the military who engage in these other sorts of perverse acts.


  11. July 17, 2010

    The present perverse administration and the leftist generation will eventually fade or fail so miserably
    people will discover lives of Faith and Fusion with the rediscovered Biblical principals which make
    a people strong and accepting of God's interaction in daily life. Those who go different ways are free
    to do so but it is getting old having anyone tell us what we must or must not accept. Gays in the
    military are asking for trouble, American men are not defined in the military service by Gucci bags
    and eyeliner, meterosexuals, homosexuals and perverts of any order bring opprobrium on themselves.
    What is tolerated in open society is not what is workable in military uniformity as the dejure
    operation must be deadly serious. The strength of our military forces must not be compromised by
    social engineering. The left in America is out to destroy our nation and attacks in every venue possible,
    no matter what approach or how artful the arguments the logic fails when the outcome is destructive,
    and that should be understood and unacceptable by the American public………………….William

  12. July 18, 2010


    I'm not sure that entering into the US military requires any commitment to the Christian deity. Moreover, if you think that homosexuality means Gucci bags and eyeliner, then you have a strange view of gay people. Moreover, it appears to me that homosexuality is accepted openly in many military systems around the planet with no bad consequences at all. It seems to me that DADT is the social engineering program, not it's opposite. Moreover, DADT is a blight on the free speech rights of military members.


  13. July 17, 2010


    Oh, let's not forget that the death penalty will need to be revoked if we are following natural law.
