Keeping Pace with morality

Why the big uproar over Gen Peter Pace's comments on his personal belief that homosexuality is wrong? First, the policy of the military to expel those found committing homosexual acts says in practice that these acts are immoral, something that will undermine the moral and conditions of the troops. Second, he only expressed his personal belief. Why the uproar?



Then there is the article above that lists all the people who have been expelled for their actions. Crocodile tears. I can tell you of a bunch of people I know that would leave or NOT enter the military too if they changed the policy. I would never enter if the military allows that sort of thing to be going on in tents in Iraq.



Let's just set this strait. No one is being kept out for who they ARE. They are being kept out for what they DO. Stop practicing homosexuality and you would be welcome.

Nope. A soldier could swear a vow of chastity during his/her tour and be expelled simply for BEING gay if it comes up. And therein lies the military's own seeds of destruction. If all 65,000 gay servicemen and women were to come out on the same day, they would have to be released. All operations would cease. There's the Dems early pullout.

Must...resist!...Too....easy...

I think the military generally forbids heterosexual sex in tents in Iraq too. They boot you if you tell them you're gay. They really are discriminating against people for who they are, not what they do. Homosexuality is not something people "practice" it's something people are. Butt-sex might be something people do, but you'll notice that the policy makes no mention of butt-sex.

Do we even need to mention all the immoral (depending on your point of view) behavior by troops that goes unacknowledged every day? Ever noticed all the strip clubs, bars and pawn shops and whores around military posts? Yeah I knew a couple of homosexuals when I was in the service, but I never did turn gay.
