DoD LGBT Pride Month 2016 (DoD website)A veteran and pro-family activist is appalled by the way things have gone at the Pentagon under President Obama.

On Wednesday, the Defense Department hosted a "celebration" of "gay pride" in the courtyard at the Pentagon. Obama administration officials, led by Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, lined up to praise homosexuals. They also described those who opposed the lifting of a ban on homosexual service as "bigots."         

"They argued that this was just like the discrimination against black Americans; that sexual orientation, one’s sexuality is something you can't change, it's immutable," says Robert Maginnis, senior fellow for national security at the Family Research Council

Maginnis, who was part of the 1993 Pentagon task force that helped craft what came to be known as "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," takes exception to that argument which has become so pervasive.

"Whether they're transgendered or homosexual or whatever is more of manifestation of the social issues that people go through in life,” the retired Army lieutenant colonel explains.

“Certainly, the science used to believe that - [and] it wasn't until about 20 years ago that the scientific community was intimidated by the political activism of the homosexual movement to begin to remove scriptures regarding homosexual from abnormalities lists and the like."

Maginnis says America's Founding Fathers would be embarrassed if they saw how the nation they created has been completely taken over by radicals led by Barack Obama.
