I am getting the feeling that the Family Research Council wrote the Pentagon’s DADT survey.
As reported below, SLDN sent out an important warning to gay and lesbian servicemenbers today. The organization “cannot recommend that lesbian, gay, or bisexual service members participate in any survey being administered by the Department of Defense, the Pentagon Working Group, or any third-party contractors.”
Every bit of news about this survey is disturbing. This comes via FOX, which means it’s probably been directly spoon fed to the reporter from the Pentagon:
As part of the Defense Department’s comprehensive review of the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy, the survey asks roughly 90 questions (depending on how the questions are answered) and will take about 20 to 30 minutes to complete, according to Pentagon spokesperson Cynthia Smith.
The questionnaire will focus on three areas. First, it asks questions regarding general satisfaction of the force. Second, it asks the servicemember if he has ever served with someone he knew or believed to be homosexual.
The third section asks for opinions on whether or not the law that bans homosexuals from serving openly should be repealed. It asks soldiers to judge if issues such as unit cohesion, recruiting, retention and family readiness would be effected if the law was overturned.
