Orthodox rabbis condemn ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ proposal

.- Apologizing for two prominent Jewish Senators’ support for allowing open homosexuals to serve in the military, an Orthodox Jewish group representing hundreds of rabbis said the normalization of homosexuality and its political causes constitute “a rebellion against G-d” and are inherently intolerant towards religious believers.

Rabbi Yehuda Levin, official spokesman on family issues for the Rabbinical Alliance of America (RBA), on Wednesday issued a statement ahead of an expected vote to change the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy that bars open homosexuals from service.

"Decent Bible-believing family people have been increasingly outraged by the cravenness of many politicians in their mad dash to turn timeless values on their heads, by advancing homosexual adoption, domestic partnerships, civil unions, 'marriage,' and 'Heather Has Two Mommies',” commented Rabbi Levin, referring to a children’s book about same-sex parents.

The rabbi said the “next slice of the salami” was the “koshering” of homosexual activity and of homosexual culture throughout the U.S. military. This constitutes “a rebellion against G-d” and demoralizes both military and civilian society, he commented.

“We condemn the inherent antipathy, intolerance, and even belligerence towards the essential religious liberties of Bible-adherents,” he continued, worrying that “politically correct ‘equality’ fanatics” would single out “traditional Bible-believers.”

Changes to the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy would “expedite our hurdling towards Sodom and Gomorrah” and “threaten to repel Divine Grace from our military's struggles,” Rabbi Levin claimed.

He called upon the Senate to filibuster the legislation, asking “all people of faith” to adhere to the RBA’s declaration that it is forbidden to vote for office-seekers who support the “homosexual agenda.”

The RBA says it represents about 850 Orthodox Rabbis from across the U.S. and Canada.
