This resolution calls "upon the President of the United States to issue an Executive Order and upon Congress to enact appropriate legislation eliminating discrimination against gays and lesbians in the Armed Forces." The resolution builds its case by pointing out "preceding the Executive Order in 1948 by President Harry Turman, African-Americans were barred from equal participation in military service." The resolution affirms "the same unfounded belief that African-Americans were incompatible with the efficient and harmonious operation of the Armed Forces is equally unfounded justification to support discrimination against gay and lesbian military personnel.
