"An armed forces watchdog concerned with readiness says she was encouraged by the recent testimony of members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who expressed concerns about President Obama's call to end the military's ban on homosexuals serving in the military," reports Chad Groening at OneNewsNow.
"The center of the debate continues to be Section 654, Title 10, which says homosexuality is not compatible with military service -- a law that is often confused with Bill Clinton's administrative policy known as 'don't ask, don't tell'," Groening explains.
The "watchdog" in question is Elaine Donnelly, who is "president of the Center for Military Readiness, which has been leading the charge against repealing the law," Groening writes.
"It's somewhat encouraging to see that [these other members of the Joint Chiefs] are not going along with that parade," OneNewsNow quotes Donnelly as saying. "Senator [John] McCain was exactly correct in saying we have a Congress for a reason. Members of Congress need to get actively involved and they need to insist on sound [military] priorities instead of pushing this diversity agenda to extremes."
