Editorial: Morality in the U.S. Military

President Donald Trump struck a blow for traditional morality and common sense on July 26 when he announced that the U.S. military would ban so-called “transgendered” individuals from being a part of the military.

This reverses the immoral policy of ex-President Barack Obama, who tried to open the door to those who pretend to change their sex and take a spot in the military. Obama also promoted government payments for the elective surgery that accompanies these efforts at “switching sexes.”

In a series of tweets, Trump wrote:

“After consultation with my generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow…transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military. Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming…victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.”

Under Obama, the military had become a proving ground for social experimentation. Obama paved the way for homosexuals to openly join the military and he pushed for women to be placed into combat units.

The announcement provoked a firestorm of opposition from proponents of homosexuality and transgenderism, including the liberal media, Democrats and college professors.

About 200 members of the military currently are seeking funding for “sex-change operations.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called Trump’s decision a “cruel and arbitrary decision designed to humiliate transgender Americans.”

If Pelosi is outraged, you know it’s a good policy.

God bless Trump for making the right decision and sparing our military from distractions that will minimize their abilities to protect our nation.
