Senate Repeals Bans on Sodomy and Bestiality in the Military

The U.S. Senate voted Thursday to approve a defense authorization bill which included a provision that not only repealed the military ban on sodomy, but also repealed the ban on having sex with animals — or bestiality.

CNS News reported:

On Nov. 15, the Senate Armed Services Committee had unanimously approved S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act, which includes a provision to repeal Article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).

Article 125 of the UCMJ makes it illegal to engage in both sodomy with humans and sex with animals.

It states: “(a) Any person subject to this chapter who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy. Penetration, however slight, is sufficient to complete the offense. (b) Any person found guilty of sodomy shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”

The vote to remove sodomy from military law comes less than a year after President Barack Obama’s repeal of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy for gay soldiers.

Tony Perkins, president of the conservative Family Research Council, said there’s a definite link between the repeal of DADT and the repeal of the sodomy law.

“It’s all about using the military to advance this administration’s radical social agenda,” Perkins told CNS News. “Not only did they overturn Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, but they had another problem, and that is, under military law sodomy is illegal, just as adultery is illegal, so they had to remove that prohibition against sodomy.”

  1. In trying to find the cite I looked at the Nov. 15th Meeting here…http://armed-services.senate.gov/testimony.cfm?wit_id=10377&id=5256

    I did not see any reference to this item and the Hearing text of the meeting states purpose of the Hearing was: OPENING STATEMENT OF SENATOR CARL LEVIN, CHAIRMAN
    Chairman LEVIN. Good morning, everybody.

    Today the committee receives testimony from two panels of wit- nesses on security issues relating to Iraq, including the withdrawal of U.S. troops and the long-term U.S.-Iraq relationship.

    Looking at the bill itself on Thomas.gov is a herculean task because of its length and numerous Amendments. So far I am unable to locate the provision,”which includes a provision to repeal Article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).”

    I am less inclined to believe reports by CBS and even less inclined when there is no cite to the actual provision therefore I can not pass along this “information” if you can find the actual cite in the bill for this please post it! Thank you

  2. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been conducting a little research on this.
    And he actually ordered me dinner because I discovered it for him.
    .. lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!
    ! But yeah, thanx for spending time to discuss this issue here on your internet site.
