AP – Gates: courts should not set policy on gays and DADT; Tony Perkins again called on for comment
Let’s see…who is commander in chief? And again, the MSM calls on bigot and purveyor of discredited junk science lobbyist Tony Perkins.
A day after a judge in California ordered the Pentagon to cease enforcement of its policy barring gays from openly serving in the military, Gates told reporters that the question of whether to repeal the law should be decided by Congress, and done only after the Pentagon completes its study on the issue.
“I feel strongly this is an action that needs to be taken by the Congress and that it is an action that requires careful preparation, and a lot of training,” said Gates. “It has enormous consequences for our troops.”
The defense secretary said that besides the changes in training, regulations will need revisions and changes may be necessary to benefits and Defense Department buildings.
…Family Research Council President Tony Perkins accused Phillips of “playing politics” with national defense.
“Once again, an activist federal judge is using the military to advance a liberal social agenda, disregarding the views of all four military service chiefs and the constitutional role of Congress,” he said.
Tony Perkins is not credible. The AP might as well have consulted the completely deranged and self-discredited Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness.
