Marines strive to uphold the highest standards of ethical conduct, and a large portion of Marines see homosexual acts as morally wrong. The repeal of DADT is an ethical change of course for the Marine Corps and will have immediate and lasting effects for conservative Christians currently serving in the Marine Corps. This paper will address the gravity of the moral concerns of those who oppose the repeal and the effects it will have on them and on the implementation of new law and possible policies. A significant portion of the Marine Corps sees homosexual acts as immoral and will be resistant to the change in policy. The way this resistance is handled will be important for the future of the Marine Corps. A heavy hand will lead to reverse discrimination.
