Gay American are born here without choice. They want to join the service and protect their country. There is no difference. Other countries allow their service without question.

Your argument makes the military sound like its a country club - and someone is trying to get into it. Its not, and Gays and Women should be allowed to serve in ANY CAPACITY.

Whole different topic, where the jury is still out, the story remains to be told and the military isn't on page with most here.

Hence the need to make a martyr out of a soldier who died serving his country.

Ok, I'm done.

Promise.

despite the fact that the armed forces in the UK, France, Israel, Australia, etc., don't discriminate against gay citizens -- and many, many in the military are gay and serving right now -- it seems that, you're right, there are some in the US who cling to a world where the jury is still out. and, in this world, the jury is still out on evolution, global warming, man landing on the moon, the existence of Bigfoot, and whether or not you'll fall off the earth if you reach the end.

i believe:


we sprang from God and not a caveman named Todd
we landed on the moon
climate change doesn't necessarily mean global warming
the earth is round and doesn't revolve around you or i, but a much higher higher source
that bigfoot doesn't actually exist but it is more the product of mass hysteria, were it not so-it would be next week's newest reality tv show.


like my rhymes don't you boo boo?

"Completed his mission the right way, within the framework of the law".. at the age of 39? Oh my God.. you don't really have a clue do you?
Just because he said, "I may not get there with you" doesn't mean he wanted to commit suicide. He was killed, but it wasn't something he wanted for himself.
Sorry... I know this isn't a MLK thread. I just took offense to this statement.

That one word isn't the issue, the rest of your posts in this thread speak volumes. So for you to act as if anyone is twisting and perverting the meaning of anything because of that one word-well it really doesn't ring true, sorry.

Even if it all came down to that one word, are you saying he was trespassing in the military because he was "unauthorized" to be there? If you translate it literally from what you posted, well..But I guess I'm just being shameful by twisting the meaning of your well written posts.

And just think...all you need to do is self-identify as a "conservative," and a whole world consequence-free bigotry and ignorance is open to you.

Liberals, though, are supposed to "tolerate" everyone, and are judged accordingly.

And if you invoke Jesus, you get a pass because you'll be "forgiven."
