    Send Congress a DADT Message

    Posted by: Andoni

    When the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) policy is gone and buried, Nathaniel Frank's new book "Unfriendly Fire, How the Gay Ban Undermines the Military" will be credited as having put the last nail in the coffin of this inane, discriminatory policy.

    This is a wonderfully written scholarly work that conclusively proves that the gay ban actually weakens the military, rather than helps it.

    In a fascinating program that the author has arranged with certain book stores, if you buy a copy of the book, a second copy will be offered to you at half price which will be sent to a US Congressman or Senator's office, to convince them (or their staff) that "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" actually harms the military. Once all 535 members of Congress have received the book via this program, they will start sending copies to generals in the Pentagon.

    Frank interviewed hundreds of people for this book, and one hopeful fact is that many people in the Pentagon now admit that they were wrong when they supported this policy 15 years ago. They now acknowledge that the policy was based solely on ignorance and prejudice.

    If your local bookstore does not offer the special deal to send a second copy of the book to a member of Congress, our gay bookstore in Atlanta, Outwrite Bookstore and Coffehouse does, and they will be happy to help you. If for some reason you can't order online, their phone number is 404-607-0082.

    Above is the clip from Frank's interview on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart Monday night. Did you know that there is a "Queen for the Day" exception to the DADT policy? Watch the video and learn.

      This continual harrassment of America's gay citizens will never stop until religion and its accompanying tribal fear of the "other" is removed from the public square.
      Any system of thought which can contain people like M.L King and Desmond Tutu on the one hand and people like Rick Warren and Pat Robertson on the other can not be taken seriously by thinking people. As Christopher Hitchens's book title so plainly explains, "God is not great."

      When you order generic viagra you will never fail at getting an erection so you will loose the fear which holds you back from engaging in sexual intercourse.

      I will continue to order generic viagra and I hope that all men who suffer from impotence will do so as well, since to order generic Viagra online is the best idea to save up a couple of dollars.

      Men who lead unhealthy lifestyles are much more likely to have to take Zenegra as remedy for their conditions than men who life healthy lives. Smoking, drinking, and loss of sleep are within the primary causes of erectile dysfunction.
