Yesterday Janet Mefferd hosted Family Research Council president Tony Perkins on her radio show, where Perkins tied last year’s repeal of the 'Don’t Ask Don’t Tell' rule in the military to the recent scandal involving Secret Service agents who solicited prostitutes in Colombia.
Perkins claimed that since the President Obama has been “enforcing open homosexuality in our military” then he should not have been “upset” about the prostitution scandal, maintaining that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’s repeal led to “a total breakdown” in “moral order."
Perkins failed, once again, to mention that Congress repealed Don't Ask, Don''t Tell with the full support of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen.
Perkins said: "The same is true for what the President has done to the military enforcing open homosexuality in our military. You can change the law but you can’t change the moral law that’s behind it. You can change the positive law, the law that is created by man, but you can’t change the moral law, it’s wrong."
"So what you have is you have a total breakdown and you can’t pick and choose. Morality is not a smorgasbord; you can’t pick what you want. I think you’re absolutely right, this is a fundamental issue going forward because if we say ‘let them do what we want,’ what’s next? You cannot maintain moral order if you are willing to allow a few things to slide."
