Skelton on DADT: What About the Kids?

Skelton on DADT: What About the Kids?


Missouri Democratic congressman Ike Skelton says the military should retain the ban on gays and lesbians serving openly so parents can avoid talking to their children about homosexuality.

Skelton, the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, has been a vocal opponent of the move to end "don't ask, don't tell." Skelton told reporters Tuesday that the repeal could put parents in the position of talking to their curious children about being gay.

"What do mommies and daddies say to their 7-year-old child?" he asked, according to CBS News.
