Judges Push Radical Agenda On Military

07/09/11 – OneNewsNow.com – “Radical” and “disturbing” – that’s how one conservative law group is describing this week’s federal court decision calling for the immediate lifting of the military’s ban against openly homosexual personnel.

The three-judge panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals asked the United States government to lift the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, pointing to Congress’ decision to repeal the policy last year. The Pentagon stated they are currently studying the ruling and will follow the court order, and will take steps to inform military officers in the field.

Daniel Blomberg is the litigation staff counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund.”…This decision…effectively stops the law from being in effect nationwide, worldwide,” says Blomberg. “So during a time of international conflict, our military is being forced by the judicial system — and unfortunately by the Obama administration’s Justice Department — to implement a change rapidly [that] they’re not prepared to implement. It’s a very disturbing development for our military.”

The ADF counsel explains that the Ninth Circuit hasn’t declared DADT unconstitutional yet, and the hearing on the merits of the case will take place in August. He says the ruling has allowed a district court’s decision to stand until they have opportunity to rule on the merits.

“Of course that really puts the military in a very difficult position. So they have a situation where a ruling is being appealed, it’s not certain that that ruling is final — it’s frankly a radical ruling — that goes against a majority of decisions that are made on this law in its history, but they have to implement it nonetheless; and they have to implement it in a time of war, and that’s not good policy and it’s not a good time for our military,” explains Blomberg.

The government currently cannot dismiss homosexuals from the military, no matter what country they are serving in.
