According to Donald Cardinal Wuerl, the Church "has no position" on whether gays and lesbians should be allowed to serve openly in the military. You can watch the Fox News interview here.
What??!?!?! If the Church can have a "position" on nonsense such as the DREAM act (and thank the Good Lord that it fizzled), how on earth could it not have a position on that question? Mind you, the question is about whether or not gays should be allowed to serve openly, that is to flout their mortally-sinful lifestyles. And the Church supposedly has no position on that?
Cardinal Wuerl's "hands-off" attitude was not shared by Archbishop Timothy Broglio of the Archdiocese for the Military Service. This past June, he urged Congress not to repeal the DADT policy. He stated quite clearly - and correctly - that "Sacrificing the moral beliefs of individuals" in response to "merely political considerations is neither just nor prudent especially for the armed forces at a time of war." Of course he and his chaplains are only dreading the human wreckage that they'll have to clean up now that perversion can be openly practiced and foisted upon our soldiers.
Pray for our bishops that they all will stand firm in the face of evil. Too many aren't.
