Why General Pace should be hosed down with water…

Definitions of Moral:
relating to principles of right and wrong; i.e. to morals or ethics; “moral philosophy” concerned with principles of right and wrong or conforming to standards of behavior and character based on those principles; “moral sense”; “a moral scrutiny”; “a moral lesson”; “a moral quandary”; “moral convictions”; “a moral life”ethical: adhering to ethical and moral principles; “it seems ethical and right”; “followed the only honorable course of action”; “had the moral courage to stand alone”

arising from the sense of right and wrong; “a moral obligation”

the significance of a story or event; “the moral of the story is to love thy neighbor”

psychological rather than physical or tangible in effect; “a moral victory”; “moral support”


So, the topic for today, Apparently, the head of the joint chiefs of staff thinks that gays are “Immoral”. Here is the link:

Now, my disclaimer, even though I for damn sure don’t agree with him in any shape or form or fashion, he has the right to say what he wants as free speech, and I am a strong believer of free speech, even though I may not agree with it or find it completely hate filled dreck. With that being said…

You want to know what I find morally wrong? I find that its wrong that there have been cases of autistic, sociopathic people, folks with violent criminal histories and Neo nazis getting enlisted and yet needed Gay soldiers who are linguists (including ones who were experts of Arabic languages) under “Don’t Ask, Don’t tell” are getting dismissed. I find it wrong that folks think that the “gay lifestyle” is such a problem when several countries have openly gay officers with no adverse effects to moral. In the advent of Gitmo,Abeer Qassim Hamza al-Janabi, and now Walter Reed, queers in the military should be the last thing the US Armed forces should be worried about. And another thing, I’m sick and tired of people saying that being gay is a lifestyle. No one choses to be gay, the only choice is if the person is GLBT is to live their lives truly or living their life in denile. see: Ted Haggard.
If, by lifestyle, they mean the sex aspect, in the terms of a relationship, that is a small part of an overall lifetime, and I’m sure gay folks do more than shag. I shall put it to you this way, no straight person wants to be equated to only their sex lives: considering folks have jobs, hobbies, people to be caretakers to and other things than just plain sex. But, I digress…

I find it disgusting that men and women who pay taxes, obey laws and just want to be treated like human beings, decide to sacrifice their time, effort and have to at best pretend that they are something they are not, hide an important part of themselves and in turn their sig others/family in order to keep their job. And, the worst part about it, is that they go out putting their lives on the line to protect supposed “good” supposidly “moral” people who hate them and would have them live the lives of second and third class citizenry. That is if they don’t want them dead first. I’ll be glad when one day GLBT folks will not be seen as the supreme evil, when their rights will not be seen as the foreshadowing of the unraviling of society and that they’ll be able to defend this country without fear of losing their livelihood or physical reprisal.

Folks like Pace and his ilk have nothing to do with Morality,ethics or honor whatsoever, and that is the saddest truth of all….
