President Trump’s decision that “the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Mlitary” is the clearest indication yet that this President is unfit for public office.. Not only does this unilateral decision violate an existing military policy that is functioning well; it flies in the face of accepted ethical norms and democratic processes.
More significantly, it indicates with clarity the fact that the President simply does not have the back of the US military.
As a Christian I resent this blatant discrimination against the transgender community. As a former chaplain in the US Army, I resent this affront to the leadership of the US military and to the military itself. As an American citizen I am offended by the fact that the autocratic manner in which such decisions are made flies blatantly in the face of democracy.
The American people have had enough.
