The stress in our military, when you look how they have used the military for their social experimentation: driving Christianity out, putting homosexuality in, suicide rate going through the ceiling…And what are they doing? Adding additional stress by this social engineering. Unbelievable.
There is no demonstrable link that repealing DADT directly contributed to suicide — and Perkins didn’t say there was. What he described was a set of environmental conditions symptomatic of the military culture — one similarly characterized by an epidemic of suicide.
Rightly or wrongly, some have developed the perception that the US military has become “hostile” to Christianity. The military now officially accepts homosexuality — a position which similarly conflicts with most major religions, including Christianity. Meanwhile, the military struggles with the epidemic of suicide — something, quite honestly, Christianity is uniquely equipped to address, were the environment supportive. Perkins’ statement is not baseless.
The fact there is “shock” that someone would connect normalization of homosexuality and ills in the culture is indicative of how far society has fallen in just a few short years.
