General James Conway is commander of ALL Marines, but he apparently does not regard the men under his authority as being equal members of the Corps. He suggested in a recent interview of his disapproval toward recent decisions by Admiral Mike Mullen, head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, concerning the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy toward gays. “I would not ask our Marines to live with someone who is homosexual if we can possibly avoid it. And to me that means we have to build separate BEQs(bachelor enlisted quarters)and have single rooms.” His idiotic remarks came soon after General Benjamin Mixon urged soldiers under his command to write protests to members of Congress about changes in gay laws.
I assume if Marines can not live in the same barracks with gays and lesbians that it stands to reason when in combat those deviants should dig separate fox holes. After all, being together in a foxhole results in being physically together.
I also assume General Conway would not allow Marines to take the blood of gay and lesbian deviants. Better to die a straight Marine than to have the blood of a gay one!!

Ever since institution of the infamous “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy in the armed forces, questions have arisen as to the constitutionality of this procedure. In an overlooked case, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in a 2008 ruling it said for a gay service member discharge to be constitutional, the military must demonstrate that the firing promotes cohesion and discipline in the unit. After all, those defending the policy continual claiming if gays are allowed to openly serve it will destroy morale and cause dissension in units. As of this point in time, there is no evidence of any criteria to judge if a particular gay or lesbian soldier who openly stated a sexual orientation would be damaging unit morale.
We doubt if any military standard can definitely prove firing an open gay or lesbian has somehow protected unit cohesion and morale. We dare the military to offer their criteria!
