Army Tries Camouflaging Its Agenda on Marriage

by mafamily

While Americans were busy celebrating the heroes of D-Day, the military was coping with its own invasion of federal marriage law. After three weeks of silence, the Army confirmed yesterday that it conducted the military’s first-ever homosexual “wedding” at Fort Polk base in Louisiana. According to officials, the ceremony took place about three weeks ago […]

Patriotism and Commitment

by mafamily

Dear Friends of the Family, The weather forecast for this weekend looks pretty good, despite the rain of the past couple days.  Many of us will have an opportunity to barbecue with friends and family, or spend a day or two camping.  But let us remember that on Monday we as a nation will recognize Americans from […]

FRC: Debate and Switch on DADT study

by mafamily

From our friends at the Family Research Council: Speaking of charades, the Pentagon’s comprehensive “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” study seems to be full of them. Back in 2010, one of the conditions for repeal was that the Defense Department would continue to view its benefits policy through the lens of the federal Defense of Marriage […]

Air Force Apology: Just Plane Wrong

Gays look for further concessions from military

by mafamily

As with same-sex “marriage” and the agenda that followed its legalization here in Massachusetts, the homosexuals and their advocates have been anything but satisfied with the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” That repeal is set to take place in two weeks, but homosexuals are already asking for Outserve, an underground homosexual magazine, to be […]

FRC: GOP Sticks to Its Guns on Troop Ban

by mafamily

From the Family Research Council: Count the U.S. military among the many Americans who could benefit from new leadership in the White House. According to some analysts, a new President would have enough executive authority to block open homosexuals from the military. Although the commander-and-chief couldn’t reinstate the 1993 statute without Congress’s support, he or […]

War on our military

by mafamily

Friends of the Family, As a combat veteran of the United State Air Force and someone who has lost close friends in battle, each news report about the death of a soldier, sailor or airman overseas affects me in a very personal way. When it was reported that a helicopter was downed in Afghanistan and […]
