General Pace calls it like it is

Story: "The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Monday he considers homosexuality to be immoral and the military should not condone it by allowing gay personnel to serve openly, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Marine Gen. Peter Pace likened homosexuality to adultery, which he said was also immoral, the newspaper reported on its Web site.
"I do not believe the United States is well served by a policy that says it is OK to be immoral in any way," Pace told the newspaper in a wide-ranging interview.

Well, this looks like its going to be an issue.
I say God Bless you General Pace, for sticking to your guns and saying the truth. This is leadership, and our world desperately needs that.
Watch, in the next 2-3 weeks, he will under go quite a few hatchet jobs by the media, but I have a hunch he will stick by his morals.

I applaud General Peter Pace for taking the correct stand on this matter. His comments are right on target. There is NO REASON for him to apologize to anyone. His personal beliefs are his own and NO ONE need apologize for their personal beliefs. While I agree that he should be loving and respectful in his statements and (more importantly) actions, being forced to accept and celebrate the choice of homosexual behavior is NOT something anyone should be confronted with -- military or civilian.
These gay advocacy groups need to sit down and shut up! There is NOTHING "outrageous" or "insensitive" in what General Pace said in the interview. I listened to part of his comments. He was soft-spoken and respectful, but also firm in his resolve. Pace answered one question with a very straightforward and truthful answer, "The US Military’s mission fundamentally rests on the trust, confidence, cooperation amongst its members, and the homosexual lifestyle does not comport with that kind of trust and confidence and therefore is not supported within the US military. I’ll leave it at that."
Homosexuality *is* an immoral act. It is NOT natural, normal or moral. The lifestyle choice is rife with promiscuity, predatorship and infidelity -- all matters that point to trust, confidence and cooperation. General Pace should be applauded for standing his ground and speaking the truth.
I, personally, plan to be active in the fight against these homosexual advocacy groups as they seek to villainize General Pace. Here's hoping you will join the fight as well. It's high time conservatives (especially Christians) stand up for our beliefs and convictions.

Given the story this morning about how a Massachusetts school district forced 14-year-olds to pledge NOT to tell their parents about a mandatory gay seminar, I think it's high time the rest of us started getting a gutful of this stuff and demand that it stop. There is no excuse for a tiny minority (2-5 percent of the population, if that) foisting the lie that buggery is a protected civil right and that they are the equivalent of a racial minority. It won't stop until people finally get livid enough.

Seems like the liberals are really not liberators in free thought but more manipulators of society. In other words, that's what dictatorships and communism do, teaching kids things that they don't want the kids parents know. Examples are laws that allow minors to have abortions w/o parents consent and Solameanie's story.

I think we should start calling them for who they truly are:o)
