“This may be your last opportunity to stand up for our troops.”

Earlier this week, the Christian Action League sent out an Urgent Action Alert: The Fight to Save ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Continues. We informed our readers that after the U.S. Senate failed to repeal DADT in the Defense Authorization bill, liberal lawmakers regrouped and tried a new strategy of attempting repeal in a stand-alone measure. Just such a bill passed the House this week and the Senate is expected to vote on the same measure on Saturday (December 18).
Some Republicans are faltering in their commitment not to vote on any item until the Senate has acted to fund the government and [has] prevented the tax increase that is currently awaiting all American taxpayers. Unfortunately, these Republicans are now prepared to vote with the Democrats on a radical social agenda and pave the way for repeal of the DADT. The Family Research Council in Washington reports: “So far, there are four Republican Senators on the record–Scott Brown (Mass.), Susan Collins (Maine), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), and Olympia Snowe (Maine)–saying they’ll override the military and vote to let gay soldiers flaunt their lifestyle. This is without any substantial hearings on how repeal will affect the troops and is in direct defiance of most military leaders, who have grave concerns about changing the policy at this time.”
This may be your last opportunity to stand up for our troops. If you have not done so already, please contact both of North Carolina’s Senators and express your opposition to the proposal to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” which would allow homosexuals to serve openly in our nation’s armed forces. Don’t take anything for granted, call them right away.
Call the office of Sen. Kay Hagan
202-224-6342 Washington Office

Call the office of Sen. Richard Burr

It was upon a biblical basis that our culture, our Founding Fathers, and early laws uniformly opposed homosexual behavior in American society. In fact, General George Washington, Commander and Chief of the Continental Army, not only forbade any practice of homosexuality, but punished offenders by having them “drummed out” of the military. Shouldn’t America’s leaders consider that example and do the same today?
Contact North Carolina’s two Senators now and let them know of your opposition to the repeal of DADT.
