The Pentagon recently announced that it would extend certain benefits to the same-sex partners of service members.
According to AFA.net, the Christian conservative American Family Association is upset that homosexual service members and their partners may now be eligible for burial at Arlington National Cemetery.
A new action alert from the American Family Association asks members to email their representatives in Congress to oppose this possible burial plan.
The alert also slams Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, who "effectively devastated our nation's military by allowing the 'gay agenda' to take priority over national defense."
The action alert reads, in part:
This means the military will recognize homosexual lovers as “married” and will give a full slate of benefits, including burial in Arlington National Cemetery.
Panetta, at every turn, has exposed the military to open homosexuality, which presents an unacceptable risk to good order, discipline, morale and unit cohesion - qualities essential for combat readiness.
Send a letter to your members of Congress, letting them know that, on their watch, they have allowed the security of our nation to be endangered by focusing on social experimentation, rather than defense.
Under your watch, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has effectively devastated our nation's military by allowing the "gay agenda" to take priority over national defense.
This week, his decision to grant "marriage" benefits to homosexuals in the military presents an unacceptable risk to good order, discipline, morale and unit cohesion - qualities essential for combat readiness.
Most disturbing is his decision to allow homosexual partners to be buried on the hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery.
I urge you to do your part in restoring sanity to the Department of Defense and stop social experimentation in the military.
