The New York Times reported last week that the impending end of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy is creating a new group of putative conscientious objectors. The Center on Conscience & War, which counsels GI's seeking to become conscientious objectors, has begun to receive calls from members of the military who say they consider homosexuality an abomination and want to become a conscientious objector because they cannot serve alongside gay soldiers. J.E. McNeil, the Center's director, says that this sort of objection does not fit within the legal requirements to become a CO. That requires religious opposition to participating in war in any form. (50 USC App Sec. 456(j)). The military personnel here are not objecting to participating in war; they are objecting to those with whom they are participating.
