Regarding the article “Senate repeals ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” (Web, Dec. 18), I am disappointed with the U.S. Senate for giving final approval Saturday to historic legislation repealing the policy banning gays from serving openly in the military.

The purpose of the legislation is to mask an abnormal sexual behavior and accentuate instead a vague but positive-sounding cultural identity. Homosexual acts are not about “rights” but about redefining truth and censoring all criticism so that militant homosexuals can be comfortable in their “lifestyle” without having to be disturbed by reality.

The reality is that homosexual behavior is abnormal, immoral and anti-life. It is not innate, as some believe. The so-called “gay gene” has never been found.

Scientific studies also show that homosexuality is linked to pedophilia. For example, a 1992 study in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy found that homosexual men are three times more likely than straight men to engage in pedophilia.

Young persons who develop a homosexual identity retain it because of the social milieu. This social milieu is the family setting and culture created by, among other things, the decisions enforced by the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court acting in coordination with the misrepresentation of the scientific evidence provided to the court by the American Psychological Association and the National Association of Social workers.
