Here’s another report from the bizarro world inhabited by the wingnuts, especially the truly deranged ones like Gordon Klingenschmitt. In the real world, Christian soldiers, and even a particular type of Christian soldiers, get a leg up from their similar-thinking superiors and lots of advantages. On Planet Wingnuttia, Klingenschmitt claims that the military is deliberately encouraging gay soldiers to force themselves on Christian soldiers. He sent this typically hysterical screed to his credulous followers:
In New Jersey, Florida, and Lousiana [sic] Christian military chapels have been desecrated by acts of sodomy, despite the fact all three of these states prohibit gay ‘marriage.’
Desecrated by acts of sodomy? You mean they had gay sex right there in the chapel? Of course not. But this is the sort of moronic rhetoric that fires up the rubes and a guy’s gotta eat, amirite?
Homosexual Sailors receive preferential treatment. “The Navy has allowed sailors openly engaged in homosexual behavior to choose their bunkmates,” says Col. Ron Crews, a retired Chaplain leading the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty.
But if Christian Sailors don’t want a homosexual roommate, they cannot refuse one. Christians who refuse such open homosexual advances are labeled as discriminators. Can you say double-standard? Just imagine the horror of being “chosen” as a bunkmate, and then being forced to endure ogling or groping without complaining.
Sexual harrassment [sic] is banned in the military, unless you’re a homosexual abusing a Christian, then it’s openly encouraged.
He wants you to “take a stand for our Christian troops.” How? By sending him money, of course. That’ll do it.
