Does John McCain Recall What He Said About Gays?

In 2006, Senator John McCain expressed his views regarding the presence of gays and lesbians in this manner: “The day that the leadership of the military comes to me and says, ‘Senator, we ought to change the policy, then I think we ought to consider seriously changing it.” OK, the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has come forth to recommend ending the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy and McCain along with his Republican buddies are denouncing calls for change. Admiral Mike Mullen, head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has made clear he wants a change in policy and has General David Petraeus whom conservatives regard as a great military leader. The basic argument advanced by Republican congressmen is changing the policy somehow impedes “military effectiveness” as noted by Cong. Gene Taylor.

Lost in their concern about “effectiveness” is any consideration for the effectiveness in combat of gay and lesbian soldiers who are risking their lives in the service of the nation. Latest polls of Americans indicate at least 60% favor changing the policy. It is always so fascinating that so many congressmen who have never served in the military know so much about military effectiveness.

Conservatives Fight Against US Military!

Watch any conservative TV show or read the conservative press and their constant complaints is that President Obama has deserted our military forces and refuses to listen to advice from those who lead the armed forces. A new conservative coalition promised to fight repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy on grounds as Elaine Donnelly put it: “our men and women in uniform should not have to pay the bill for political promises the president has made to the left.” The Alliance Defense Fund is particularly concerned that members of the clergy would have to violate their faith by interacting with homosexuals and, heaven’s sake, they might even have to teach others that homosexuals are decent people!

Conservatives are right about one thing, it is time the American people learned who are these left wing Socialist Commies! Here are some of those names:

Colin Powell
Admiral Mike Mullen, head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
Robert Gates who served in the administration of the left wing’s primary agent, George Bush.

I am bewildered on one point. Why are these God fearing Americans more concerned about the feelings of chaplains who don’t serve on the firing lines than gays and lesbians who every day risk their lives in the service of the nation?

Malawi Clamps Down On Gays

Police in Malawi have begun a campaign to clamp down on gays and lesbians in the nation after prosecution of the first gay couple in the country to seek being allowed to marry. Thousands of Ugandans demonstrated in the streets of the capital demanding passage of a proposed law that would impose the death penalty for some offenses involving homosexual acts. A spokesman for the police in Malawi said an elderly man had been arrested for sodomizing a young man, and an investigation continues into a supposed ring which allows high profile people to have homosexual acts.

Steven Monajeza and Twonge Chmbalanga were jailed in December for holding a homosexual wedding and they are charged with engaging in unnatural acts and gross indecency. There is no doubt a witch hunt is in full swing and forces of hate are out to get the “homos” and kill them. Although international leaders like Barack Obama condemned these assaults, a large number of Ugandans are out to use violence against gays and lesbians. Yes, we live in the 21st century.

Repeal Gay Ban–Someday Soon!

The Pentagon has begun its review of the current ban on gays and lesbians serving in the armed force as long as they keep their mouth shut about it. Two generals have been assigned the task of investigating any issues that arise from any changes, particularly as they would impact members of the military who are not gay. The fear is creating a back lash once any changes go into effect. A guiding principle that was announced by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates is “to minimize disruption and polarization within the ranks, with a special attention paid to those serving in the front lines.” Any change would, of course, require action by the United States Congress.

Why is it that conservatives are concerned about the feelings of those who serve with gays and lesbians, but never with the feelings of gays and lesbians?

Please Read, John McCain!

Senator John McCain repeatedly claims he will oppose the ban on gays and lesbians openly serving in the United States armed forces until he sees evidence that members of the military seek to change the current, “don’t ask, don’t tell,” policy. The 65,000 members of the Reserve Officers Association,(ROA) voted to end its support for the current policy of denying gays and lesbians to openly serve. A two-thirds majority(get it John, two-thirds)vote did away with the long standing policy of the organization against gays and lesbians in the service. The ROA is considered the most conservative veterans group and as recently as 2004 voted that having gays and lesbians in the armed forces was “detrimental to good order, morale, discipline, recruiting and retention.”

So, John, will you now support the President and leaders of the armed forces?

Gay Tweet Heard Round The World

News about a major change in American military operations circulated around the world and it was expressed in fewer than 140 characters. Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, tweeted to members of the military: “Stand by what I said: Allowing homosexuals to serve openly is the right thing to do. Comes down to integrity.” Yes, the message is brief, but why does expressing support for human rights require elaborate discussions? As Mullen told members of Congress a few days ago: “No matter how I look at the issue, I cannot escape being troubled by the fact that we have in place a policy which forces young men and women to lie about what they do in order to defend their fellow citizens.” That is the bottom line and its truth is so evident, only the bigoted can ignore it.

Among the following responses to the tweet were:

“thank you for your integrity,” wrote Annq13

“Let’s hold them to this,” matropolis

“big step forward,” lilbodancer

As citizens of the United States of America we must all apologize to those brave gays and lesbians who died for this country despite being treated as lepers!!

Be Asked And Tell The Truth Without Consqunces!

Last week, Senator John McCain said it was irresponsible on the part of President Obama to get involved in the right of gays and lesbians to serve in the military. This week, Obama, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs Chairman, Admiral Mike Mullen, said it was time to respect the rights of men and women who have been risking their lives in the service of their country by ending the ridiculous, “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. Gates admitted it might irritate some by conducting a review of the policy in the midst of war, but it is time to move on with the rights of gays and lesbians. Admiral Mullen also told Congress that he completely supports this initiative. “Speaking for myself and myself only, it is my personal and professional belief that allowing homosexuals to serve openly would be the right thing to do.”

Admiral Mullen told senators, “No matter how I look at the issue, I cannot escape being troubled by the fact that we have in place a policy which forces young men and women to lie about who they are in order to defend their fellow citizens.” Nothing more to add to this statement, is there?

Church Of Sweden Says OK But Priests Say NO!

The Church of Sweden has announced that gays and lesbians have the right to get married within a church, but it also gave the right to priests to decide if they wished to go along with the policy. Latest figures indicate that one in five priests have refused to go along with the new policy and will not sanction a gay or lesbian marriage. Ingemar Scott put in bluntly: “the Bible teaches that marriage is between a man and a woman.” Of course, the Bible teaches many other things including the right of people to own slaves, but for some reason modern humans never cite that part of the Bible.

I am always fascinated by church officials who decry the rise of divorce and seek to assist people to avoid a divorce. On one hand, these church officials want the stability of marriage, but, on the other hand, they do not want gays and lesbians to marry. Is there something wrong with this equation>

WHY IN AMERICA?

One must occasionally ask the question–Why In America and the World?

Why in America are the people of this land confused about the need for health care?

Why doesn’t anyone in government have the faintest idea on how to solve economic problems?

Why is a man allowed to spend $100 million in order to get elected as mayor?

Why do Israelis ignore the historic Jewish commitment to human rights when the word “Palestinian” is evoked?

Why are Americans more concerned about taxing wealthy people than providing jobs or health care to the poor and middle class?

Why is someone who authorized torture viewed as an elder statesman?

Why do people walk around with big tummies?

Why must a young person avoid seeing a doctor because he lacks the money and has swine flu?

Why are Americans oblivious about global warming and what must be done?

Why do people who believe in the sanctity of marriage oppose marriage when it involves men marrying men or women marrying women?

More Lesbians Separated From Military Than Gays

The Pentagon has uncovered a rather interesting fact– although women account for 15% of the armed forces, lesbians represent one-third of those who are separated from the military due to the infamous, “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy. According to Professor Belkin of the University of California: “It’s very clear the military comes down harder on women than on men, but the question of whether they come down harder on lesbians than gay men is harder to answer.” However, these latest statistics may provide proof the military is coming down harder on lesbian soldiers. Ironically, the Pentagon can investigate this issue because regulations forbid any investigation as long as gays and lesbians maintain their silence regarding sexual preferences.

Air Force figures leave no doubt as to what is happening in our military. Although women constitute 20 per cent of the Air Force, they account for 61% of those discharged due to the gay/lesbian policy of the armed forces. Oh well, we are only in the 21st century, perhaps, when we enter the 22nd this policy might be abandoned.
