Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT) : Banning It In Military Service and Church

Reading, there was an article on Barack Obama's position re: DADT (he is against it), and John McCain (he is for it). Thousands of trained specialist in the military services have been kicked out of their field of work not because of their job performance but because they are LGBT. Click here.

What is amazing is how much the private business sector, along with public service, and many non-profits are pro-LGBT and not playing the game of DADT.

Here's a thought: military service and communities of faith have something to learn from private industry and public service: DADT is passe, "yesterday policy," an antique. Just being straight or LGBTQ does not determine the way one works at a job per se.

It is time to change!

Pace, B
