FRC: Not Too Late To Block DADT Repeal

Jim Burroway

April 20th, 2011

The Family “Research” Council never admits defeat. In an Op-Ed posted on Fox News, FRC continues to falsely portray the Pentagon’s survey as evidence that DADT’s repeal will be bad for morale. But when 70% believe that having a gay service member in their unit will have a positive, mixed, or no effect on the unit’s ability to “work together to get the job done,” it’s hard to see where FRC is coming from — unless they want to encourage the minority who think otherwise to make DADT’s repeal a problem for unit cohesion. Even chaplains are on board with the change.

The repeal’s full implementation is expected to occur sometime this summer.

He’s just sore because he lost. Mr Perkins must realize that there is an end in sight for all his spin-doctoring.

Yes, FRC may have lost what they wanted but we all know that everyone will win with the repeal of DADT. Our military and country are a better place.
