/ -- Before civilizations crumble, the last thing to hit the fan is government-sponsored, government-forced, homosexuality, sodomy, and pedophilia. Homosexuality is a psychiatric disorder and probably the worst sin described in the Holy Bible due to the permanent damage caused to what was or is or might have been a temple of the Spirit. The consequences are said to be nothing short of eternal damnation, by choice. It's a shame that the US military, historically known to be a beacon of morality and religious tolerance and freedom, while the civilian sector has engaged in immorality, is now having its nose shoved in the dirt of filth to make the Sinners-in-Chief in the highest echelons of politics--the perverts, the pedophiles, and the psychiatrically ill--feel better about themselves.

Retired Military Chaplain Jim Linzey, a Baptist minister, states that "the teachings of the Church are an elaboration of the laws that Jesus gave when He said, 'But from the beginning of the creation, God "made them male and female." "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh"; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh' (Mark 10:6-8). Jesus' teaching emphasizes the unity between a man and his wife. Jesus also said, 'Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate' (Mark 10:9, NKJV). Based on Jesus' statement, it is a moral obligation to remain married once the marriage is consummated."
There is a biblical basis for separation. "But the point is that marriage between men and women are the foundation of society, including military society," said Chaplain Valerie Potter, who is Methodist.
Military couples face many trials, including separations due to deployments. Chaplains have a crucial role to counsel them, to help them keep their marriages intact. As Chaplain Frank Johnson, a Baptist minister, said, "Marriage is a combat multiplier in that it gives married troops hope and a reason to fight well, defending ones country, of which marriage and families are the foundation; it gives troops a reason to live and come home." "But homosexuality is a combat divider, dividing one's reason to live while taking breaks on the combat field to change diapers all because their treacherous sin causes them to lose control of their bowels," said Chaplain John R. Kauffman, a Pentecostal minister. "How do you win a war like that? What a spectacle in the face of moral Muslims who detest homosexuality," he continued.
As a military chaplain, Rev. Linzey has counselled Soldiers struggling with homosexuality who left the military and some who had HIV. "Homosexuality was not a pleasant sin for these Soldiers," Linzey said. "They were laden with guilt and wished they could be freed from this most vile bondage, destroying their mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being. But only a penitent heart in the soul of one who would receive the atoning sacrifice of Jesus the Christ can be free." God have mercy on the US military.
