Orthodox Rabbi predicts deadly fallout from permitting homosexuality in military

Rabbi Levin, head of Jews for Morality and spokesman for nearly 1000 Orthodox Rabbis across North America, said that the sanctioning of grave immorality removes God’s protection. “We are students of Biblical history,” he said. “We have seen time and time again in Biblical history when Jews and others have forsaken the path of morality that we have paid – society has paid – a bitter price in terms of losing God’s grace and protection.  There have been natural disasters, there have been defeats in wars.”

The prominent Rabbi warned, “It is very apparent to me, that at such a time where we are involved with various wars in various fronts and there is a tinderbox situation with Korea, the mid-East and so many areas. It’s painfully apparent to me that to a certain extent we – America in general and our military specifically – are in the greatest danger of losing God’s grace and protection.”

He expressed his concern that “religious people who would want to enlist and serve their country have to feel that if they demonstrate in any way their religious feelings they are going to be court marshaled, disciplined, forcefully taught tolerance.  All of this is immorality and evil, and when one promotes immorality and evil we lose God’s protection and we pay for it in loss of life and limb.  This is our fear.”
