U. S. Senate Approves Sodomy (and Bestiality) for the U.S. Military

By Tom Davis · Dec. 6, 2011

As reported in CNS News under the byline of Pete Winn, dated December 1, 2011, the United States Senate by a vote of 97 to 3 passed Senate Bill S. 1867. What should have been simply a routine appropriations bill turned into something grotesque and far, far outside the pale of American decency.

Quoting directly from American vision news in an article by Joel McDurmon, “Yes, it’s true: the "indefinite detention” bill passed this week also repealed the Army’s prohibitions of sodomy and bestiality. In addition, unbelievably, the Senate voted in favor by overwhelming 93 to 7 majority.

Subtitle E, Section 551(d) states plainly: “Repeal of Sodomy Article-Section 925 of such title (article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice) is repealed.” (See p. 174, lines 4-6.)

And what exactly is repealed here? The repealed Section 925. Article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice clearly states,

(a) Any person subject to this chapter who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy. Penetration, however slight, is sufficient to complete the offense.

(b) Any person found guilty of sodomy shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.

These laws are gone, which effectually means a legalization of not just gays in the military, but the gay sex act in the military.

“It’s all about using the military to advance this administration’s radical social agenda,” Family Research Council President Tony Perkins told CNSNews.com. “Not only did they overturn Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, but they had another problem, and that is, under military law sodomy is illegal, just as adultery is illegal, so they had to remove that prohibition against sodomy.”

This piece of morally flawed legislation originated in the House and with this unholy provision attached must go back to the house where wiser and more decent minds will surely prevail, though not necessarily since this 112th congress is so badly flawed and corrupt.

I would suggest to John Boehner that he and his body jump on this publicly and pull no punches; name names and make fools of the 93 supporters of S. 1867. They should all be impeached, pilloried and put out to pasture and never see one thin dime of any retirement program. All 97 are a damned disgrace to the high office they hold. Dear reader, do you feel my anger and disgust directed at these 97 disgusting idiots?

All of these actions of our goverment over all the years since I have started to really pay attention have had one simple goal in mind, the undermining of that which had given us stability as a nation that claims faith in the ONE AND TRUE CREATOR. All that is coming to light has been working towards not only the destruction of our country but also the rest of the world and this can only take place if as individuals we let the laws passed by man to circumvent those things established from the begining by our creator for our protection and benefit. (NUM 31:16)Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.AND(REV 2:14)But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.But we as a whole have learned to love the wages of disobedience and chosen to,(ROM 10:3) For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.It is up to us whom it is we will obey, do we fear YHWH rather than man? or will we allow ourselves to sucked into the cesspool!All of this is coming upon us because the majority holds to a doctrine that does not truelly understand the GRACE OF YHWH.

In the 18th and 19th century British Navy the Captains of the magnificent ships of the line were required to read "The Articles of War" to their crews, sailors and officers alike, periodically. One of those articles stated that anyone caught in the act of sodomy would be summarily hanged from the yardarm, forthwith.Today, by a vote of 93-7 in the US Senate, in the US navy, sodomy is a badge of honor.We have come a long way baby.BTW; beastiality is in as well.

So you can now legally have sex with your buddies dog but not his wife! Not only that, but this must, be explained to the service member"937. ARTICLE 137. ARTICLES TO BE EXPLAINED." (A) the member’s initial entrance on active duty; or (B) the member’s initial entrance into a duty status with a reserve component.(2) Such sections (articles) shall be explained again– (A) after the member has completed six months of active duty or, in the case of a member of a reserve component, after the member has completed basic or recruiting training; and (B) at the time when the member reenlists.

This was a reprehensible provision of the USMJ which deserved to be overturned. Oral sex with your own wife was illegal undr this provision. Good order and discipline do not need to peek into what consenting adults do behind closed doors to be maintained. Good riddance to a repressive rule.

No, no one should be mad about repealing a section of the UCMJ that is archaic and unenforced. The object of repealing this is so they can't court-martial gay soldiers after DADT repeal, based on an old, unused sodomy rule, much like those stuck down nation-wide early last decade. This law forbids all military personal from anything but missionary postition, on- or off-base and deployed, at pain of court-martial or serious disciplinary action. It's a privacy concern (just ask the SCOTUS). And fraternization on-base and while deployed is still forbidden, so it changes nothing of practice. Just cleaning house, for those who actually understand it.

Frank Wilm: quoting scripture only advances your personal agenda of looking like an idiot.separation of church and state, i do believe, is a component of the founding fathers' ideas.also, given this is posted on a "pertaining to liberty" website, how exactly is forcing your religious views onto others liberty?as for the actual changes to UCMJ, good thing that the military is finally starting to catch up the current social environment. i've never been able to grasp why it's anyone's business where someone's wiener goes, unless ofcourse you are the almighty you speak of... then it can be your business. but if you tread into that poop pile, you ought to punish yourself for blaspheming, right?

Do I have this right---they can have sex with a dog, a chicken, or a camel, but if a female service member is raped and impregnated she has to either buy her own abortion or give birth to a child she will likely always hate?????What consenting adult humans do with each other is not my problem, but rape and bestiality both are just wrong.

@Kamil. The subtitle of this website is "Voice of Essential Liberty." Your attack of Frank illustrates your ignorance of what liberty actually is. Frank is "at liberty" to voice his opinion (which I happen to agree with), just as you are. Just because you disagree doesn't mean he is forcing anything on you. Why is it that the only opinion that cannot be tolerated (it must also be attacked) is that of the so-called "religious right"?

If the Constitution were truly a Christian and Biblical document, would such things be occurring today in our beloved country? We have socialism because the framers ignored Yahweh's moral, civil, and economic laws when framing the Constitution. For the same reason, the United States Constitutional Republic has legalized infanticide, sodomy, and now bestiality (and number of other abominations). None of these things would exist today had the framers actually created a Biblical document.Find out how much you really know about the Constitution as compared to Yahweh's moral law (His commandments, statutes, and judgments).

The only reason that I can think of as to why they left adultery on the books is so that they can have a charge against the heterosexual members of the Military in case they really want to get rid of someone. Maybe there is another part of this, too. If someone wanted to get rid of one of those queer people, it shouldn't be too hard to get someone to say that it happened with that person.

If they didn't leave the charge of adultery in the Uniform Code of Military Justice, then the military would have no legal way to punish (and hopefully prevent/deter) military personnel that have sex with their co-worker's wives or husbands. Adultery in the civilian world frequently leads to violent crimes of passion and such crimes within the military are prejudicial to good order and discipline... especially in combat zones and on board ships. The adultery charge needs to remain a part of the UCMJ.
