The Pentagon plans to announce the repeal of its ban on openly serving transgender service members next month, U.S. defense officials said.

Luke 17:26-30


The repeal would come five years after a 2011 decision to end the U.S. military’s ban on gays and lesbians serving openly, despite fears – which proved unfounded – that such a move would be too great a burden in wartime and would undermine readiness.

The disclosure came the same week that the U.S. Army formally welcomed its new secretary, Eric Fanning, who is the first openly gay leader of a military service branch in U.S. history.

One of the U.S. officials said parts of the repeal would come into effect immediately. But the plan would also direct each branch of the armed services to implement new policies affecting everything from recruiting to housing for transgender troops, the official said.

Republican Representative Mac Thornberry, chairman of the House of Representatives Armed Services Committee, said Defense Secretary Ash Carter had not answered questions the panel had asked, including about “readiness challenges” for transgender service members.

“If reports are correct, I believe Secretary Carter has put the political agenda of a departing administration ahead of the military’s readiness crisis,” Thornberry said in a statement.

Supporters of transgender rights cheered the news. Ashley Broadway-Mack, president of the American Military Partner Association, said in a statement: “Our transgender service members and their families are breathing a huge sigh of relief.”

The National Center for Transgender Equality estimated last year that 15,000 trans people served in the U.S. military.

    Send them to Iraq, and Afghanistan!

    I WAS in the Army Airborne Infantry from Oct. 1950 to Oct. 1953. (Korea)
    That was Before “don’t ask, don’t tell”. I was “Hit on” way too many times by the “gays”. I was a Slim 135 lbs at the time – apparently the gay “ideal” body type.
    ON a 3 day pass I hick hiked and about 25% of my “offers” of a ride were by gays. Because I had observed “gays” in my platoon, I had no trouble saying No. But because, the gays are “aggressive” , I think there should be some sort of warning to the “innocent” inductees.

    Since the “anything but gay” sodomites have pushed the whole G.L.B.T.Q. agenda and the majority of collage educated idiots have fallen for the legitimizing of their perversions.

    Perhaps the least objectionable solution would be to allow them to have their own battalions, much like the legions of the ancient Roman Empire. Of course this was when the Romans were a “super power.” And like the Romans these abominations will eventually lead to the further decline of the U.S.A.

    When a nation rejects God’s Word and continues to pursue it own lusts, Then a warning must be given:

    2 Chr 36:16 But they mocked the messengers of God, and despised his words, and misused his prophets, until the wrath of the LORD arose against his people, till there was no remedy.

    Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

    America, you have been warned, Repent now or continue to face the Judgement of God.

    Heb 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
    Heb 10:27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
    Heb 10:28 He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
    Heb 10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
    Heb 10:30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
    Heb 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
