ANALYSIS/OPINION:

How about we do ask and do tell?

Here is the first question I think we should ask with regard to gays in the military: “Is a person born gay?” Studies have shown that factors such as whether a person was abused as a child or whether a man had an overbearing mother and a distant father may be more significant than genetic predisposition.

Here is a second question we might ask: “Is there a universal moral code that applies to all of humanity?” Observant Jews as well asmost Christians andMuslimswould say yes - and that code doesnot include sodomy.Specifically, we are convinced that freedom without responsibility is anarchy and that there is a God who is paying attention and does not appreciate a violation of one of his most basic tenets.

A third question we might ask is, “If sodomy is ultimately a choice and religious people are convinced that God is watching, should we move to accept gay behavior inmilitarysociety? Do tell.
