Marine Corps Times Celebrates DADT Repeal

By Jerry A. Kane

Judging from the in-your-face cover for next week’s Marine Corps Times, it looks like the editors of the military rag are telling Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children (USMC) “We’re Here. We’re Queer. Get Used to It.”

The mini-billboard cover featuring a story celebrating the repeal of the military’s “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” (DADT) policy and the views of homosexual Marines will be displayed worldwide on Marine Corps bases in heavily-trafficked areas including commissaries, offices, and work spaces.

In less than a week, the Marine Corps will be forced to abandon its DADT policy and start enforcing policies that embrace and protect open homosexuality. As they did on college and university campuses, politically-correct policies will distinguish between homosexuals and heterosexuals, thereby creating a protected class empowered with special privileges and treated more equally than others in the non-protected classes.

Now that the editors of the Marine Corps Times have boldly embraced open homosexuality in the Corps, shouldn’t they also pressure the Corps to change its unwritten promise from “leave no man behind” to “leave no man’s behind?”
