A retired Army chaplain says homosexual sailors have been able to choose their bunkmates on board Navy ships as a consequence of the repeal of the ban on homosexuals serving openly in the military.

Crews, Col. Ron (Chaplain Alliance)Col. Ron Crews (USA-Ret.) served as an Army chaplain for 28 years and now serves as a spokesman for the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty. When asked by The Washington Times to write an op-ed on the consequences of the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell," he was quick to point out that "toleration does not cut both ways."

"The Department of Defense is continually bringing forth homosexual soldiers and military personnel to do press conferences and talk about how wonderful it is," Col. Crews notes. "And then they allow military personnel to march in a gay pride parade in San Diego. But yet those who hold biblical values are silenced."

The Chaplain Alliance spokesman adds that homosexuals are now demanding and receiving special privileges in the military, including one egregious example aboard Navy ships.

"Same-sex sailors were able to choose their bunk mates," he reports. "When some heterosexual sailors wanted to choose bunkmates, they were denied that and it caused a morale problem."

That, Crews says, is just the tip of the iceberg. His Washington Times piece is titled "Homosexuals in the military demand special privileges."
