Young Americans 'pawns in a social experiment'

Defense Secretary Ash Carter recently fulfilled the wish of President Barack Obama by mandating that transgenders be allowed to be in the military. "... We don't want barriers unrelated to a person's qualification to serve preventing us from recruiting or retaining the soldier, sailor, airman, or Marine who can best accomplish the mission," he stated at that time.

Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty executive director Ron Crews reports that in a recent conference call with chaplain endorsers, a senior Pentagon official outlined implications of the policy change. Crews points out that a Christian member of the military might be assigned to a barrack that has a male going through the transgender process.

"And [that] young [Christian] lady will have no recourse, because if she complains, she will be the one at fault,” Crews explained. “The transgender military person will be the one protected — not this young female."

The Christian leader says moms and dads in America need to be aware of the implications of this policy.

Crews, Col. Ron (Chaplain Alliance)"I am fed up. I am tired,” Crews admits. “For the first time in my life, I cannot encourage someone to consider the military as career right now — as long as this administration continues to push our military down this road. We are in serious trouble."

He believes this policy change is going to have a significant negative impact on recruiting and retention. "Young men and women will not want to serve in an environment where they're being used as pawns in a social experiment," Crews concludes.
