Rep. Ike Shelton, the anti-gay and conservative Missouri Democratic chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, warns against repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" because then children would learn about homosexuality.
Asked the 79-year-old Skelton: "What do mommies and daddies say to their 7-year-old child?"

Skelton, one of the 26 House Democrats who voted against repeal, says he would continue to oppose repeal although his constituents could care less. “I was everywhere in my district, everywhere. It just wasn’t raised. There are other things on people’s minds, like jobs and the economy.”
