Yesterday, I was handed what I consider to be good news. However, I dared not believe it, until today. I had to see confirmation for myself.
I have learned that President Trump has actually banned transgender people from service in the military. As some may recall, I spoke out against the policy that allowed trans people to openly serve for multiple reasons, not the least of which is that it’s a violation of my religious beliefs to order me to tolerate them.
Now, I’m face-to-face with the fact that this policy has gone the way of the dinosaur, and I couldn’t be happier. The only question I have is, for how long?
If I’ve learned anything in my 40 years on this planet, it’s that humans are stubborn, prideful and relentless. The LGBTQ alphabet soup will be back, trying to force this course of action. It isn’t as if Trump will be preseident forever.
