The failed social experimentation in our military of permitting homosexuals to join the military under "Don't ask, Don't tell" is starting to bear some pretty ugly fruit. The Veteran's Administration hospitals are now the single largest HIV Care Givers in the United States. (Source)
"The Pentagon understands that 19,000 soldiers already have HIV/AIDS and that some -- if not most -- came down with the deadly disease through prohibited gay sexual conduct. It is common sense that opening the ranks to open and active homosexuals would only increase this problem." (Source)
But, common sense is sorely lacking amid politicians fearful of offending the 1-3% of our population that are homosexual. If they were only a threat to themselves, as they claim, it would still be bad policy. Unfortunately, homosexuals in the military are 300% more likely to sexually assault one of their fellow soldiers:
"Homosexual activist groups themselves have admitted that less than three percent of Americans are homosexual or bisexual.
FRC has reviewed the "case synopses" of all 1,643 reports of sexual assault reported by the four branches of the military for Fiscal Year 2009 (October 1, 2008 through September 30, 2009). Our startling finding was that over eight percent (8.2%) of all military sexual assault cases were homosexual in nature. This suggests that homosexuals in the military are about three times more likely to commit sexual assaults than heterosexuals are, relative to their numbers." (Source)
As I pointed out in previous articles, homosexuals average scores of sexual partners per year and show al l of the symptoms of a serious sex addiction. This means that sometimes, they neither ask nor tell.
FRC and other supporters of the current law have pointed out the risks involved in having servicemembers share living quarters, showers, and bathrooms with persons of the same sex who may be sexually attracted to them. This concern is borne out by many of the case synopses reported by the Pentagon. The most common type of homosexual assault is one in which the offender fondles or performs oral sex upon a sleeping victim. Assaults upon victims who are intoxicated are also common. (Source)
Have one too many beers with your buddy, and you might wake up with something far worse than a hangover. Here are a few examples:
* 36-year-old Marine Sgt. Sean D. Habian used both alcohol and homosexual pornography in the course of assaulting a 21-year-old Lance Corporal.
* Marine Sgt. Steven G. Carlson, a military police instructor, took advantage of his position to exploit his students, inviting them to social events, plying them with alcohol, and playing games like "truth or dare" to identify who might be receptive to homosexual activity. One of his victims "testified that the appellant's acts shocked him, he froze, and was scared."
* Homosexual activists are fond of saying that the military cannot afford to lose the specialized skills that some homosexual service members have-such as translators and linguists. Air Force Sgt. Eric P. Marcum was a Persian-Farsi linguist-but also was charged with forcible sodomy against a male Senior Airman who "testified that Appellant's actions made him scared, angry, and uncomfortable."
* Air Force Major Rickie J. Bellanger was charged with sexually abusing two minor boys-one of whom had begun corresponding with Maj. Bellanger when he was in the fifth grade. (Ibid)
Not to mention that the HIV rate among homosexual males is 50 times higher than the general population:

ATLANTA — Gay and bisexual men account for half of new HIV infections in the U.S. and have AIDS at a rate more than 50 times greater than other groups, according to Centers for Disease Control & Prevention data presented at the National HIV Prevention Conference this week in Atlanta.
Dr. Amy Lansky of the CDC presented research at the Aug. 24 plenary in which the CDC estimated in the U.S. there were 692.2 new HIV cases in 2007 per 100,000 men who have sex with men.
Extrapolating some numbers from the above, it is quite possible that more than 60% of the active homosexuals, who have been active for 6 or more years in the U.S. are HIV positive. Twenty-one percent of all Hepatitis B cases are from homosexual sex (a huge number considering that only 1-3% of the population are practicing homosexuals). Syphilis rates are also at epidemic proportions among the homosexual population.
So now, rather than reporting the truth, Uncle Same is blaming Taliban bombs with HIV needles as the source of our current HIV epidemic in the military. (Source)
An interesting accusation considering that Islamic countries have zero tolerance for homosexuality, with public execution often being the primary punishment. From what I can see, our military doesn't need the Taliban's help to spread disease among the ranks of our young military men, our failed social experiments are doing the job for them.
Any parent with a son serving in the US military should take this article personally, and demand that the previous military prohibitions on homosexuals should be restored. Our current policy is just too expensive.
