Sen. Lieberman’s Announcement to Not to Seek Another Term After Leading DADT Repeal Welcomed by Conservative Voter Groups.
Event:The announcement of Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, Independent from Connecticut, that he will not run for a new term in 2012 was weclomed by conservative voters' organizations, including the Community Guardians’ Group (CGG).
Senator Lieberman brought shame on himself and his Jewish brothers recently by agreeing to serve as a chief spokesman for repeal of the U.S. military's policy of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" regarding same-gender intimacy of soldiers. While Senator Lieberman is one of the nation’s most publicly recognized Jews, the Torah -- and all communities and leaders of Orthodox Jews -- revile acts of same-gender intimacy. All mankind is required to engage in positive, procreative relationships in the context of marriage.
A section of the Torah given by G-d Almighty to Moses includes the duties incumbent on all the nations of the world. These universal responsibilities for all mankind, known as the "Sheva Mitzvos" (or Seven Laws) of Noah, include a duty to control one's carnal desires, prohibiting same-gender intimacy along with incest and adultery with a married woman.
Senator Lieberman faced growing opposition from both his Democratic and Republican colleagues and constituents alike, and let his ambition outpace his true duty. The folding of Senator Lieberman's tenure after he successfully campaigned for the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" proves once again that public figures who attempt to show a face of "moderate" conservatism while advocating for the public acceptance of same-gender intimacy are neutering their careers.
The CGG successfully led the campaign on behalf of religious voters to defeat same-sex marriage bills in New York and New Jersey.The Community Guardians’ Group is an organization dedicated to advancing the spirit of eternal values in the public forum.For further information, contact Dovid Z.
