As I was reading news this evening, I noticed that the words gay and homosexual were in a lot of the articles. The reason?
From the Not-So-Homo-Promo Files: “In Iran we don’t have homosexuals like in your country. We don’t have that like in your country... In Iran we do not have this phenomenon.” —Mahmud Ahmadi-Nejad, neglecting to mention that homosexuals are executed in Iran (LINK)
Ok....I guess execution would be a strong deterrent. Here in our country, the looney left ridicules a Marine General for following rules and believing in his religion.
Protesters shouting "Thou Shalt Not Kill!" disrupted a congressional hearing Wednesday after the top US military officer defended his view that homosexuality is immoral.
The confrontation began when Senator Tom Harkin, a Democrat, chided General Peter Pace for his "very hurtful remarks" in May that it was wrong to "condone immoral acts" by allowing gays to serve openly in the military.(LINK)
Pace supports "don't ask don't tell" because it allows homosexuals to serve their country.
"And that is, very simply, that we should respect those who want to serve the nation but not through the law of the land, condone activity that, in my upbringing, is counter to God's law," he said.
Anti-war protesters then started shouting, but Pace went on to say his responsibility was "to obey the law of the land and to object if something is either illegal or immoral."
"My upbringing tells me that sexual activity outside the bonds of marriage between a man and a woman is immoral. That's what I was taught. That's what I believe," he said.
Indeed. You may not agree with what he believes, but you should understand it.
