Right Wing Watch reports that Frank Gaffney hosted Adm. James “Ace” Lyons on his “Secure Freedom Radio” program last week. Lyons is a former commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet who constantly attends right-wing conferences to promote his anti-gay views.

When asked about The Pentagon‘s plan to allow transgender people to serve in the military, Lyons called the idea “pure nonsense” and said that “transgender is not a civil rights issue, it is a mental disorder.” He then suggested that transgender people simply need treatment to “return to a normal lifestyle.”

Then, paraphrasing late conservative writer Steve Evans, Lyons says “the gay, lesbian, transgender lifestyle is nothing but a return to a pagan ethic… which has led to the downfall of previous civilizations.

“Well,” Gaffney responded, “it would certainly seem on its face to be incompatible with a warrior and a successful military.”
