This weekend; three perspectives on the impact of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, and the potential impact of repeal. You’ll hear from:
Jeanette Coleman, a decorated U.S. Army veteran, on keeping the fact that she was gay a secret while serving for 14 years, and why she fights for the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” After being discharged because of her homosexuality, Coleman has since re-enlisted. Recent Senate committee hearings discussed acting on repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
Arthur Schulcz, an attorney and Vietnam War veteran representing the International Conference of Evangelical Chaplain Endorsers, on free speech and religious liberty issues raised by some military chaplains opposed to repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
Mark Pelavin, Associate Director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, which has publicly supported repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. He is also the Associate Director of the Commission on Social Action of Reform Judaism.
Plus, Rev. Gaddy considers a listener’s question regarding the appropriate role of prayer, specifically religious invocations, at public meetings.
