Funny how that works. This, this, this, and this are not only wrong, but abominations.
Never changed His mind, never will.
You mean the one that supposedly handed down the 10 commandments? The biggie being thou shalt not kill? I guess, being in SF, you see that as more of
a suggestion, than a commandment, huh? I didn't see the asterisk next to it saying when it was okay though. Why do you act so strong and independent,
yet base your life on what ancient "prophets" said that god told them (well, the parts you personally agree with I guess)? In your mind, it's really
that simple, huh? Cut and dry, because you were TOLD what to believe, and you do so. No questions asked. You never consider the fact that evil men
could have lied, in order to control the weak minded and fearful? If your god hates gays so much, why does he create them? I was born straight, the
moment I hit puberty, my attraction to women was never a question. At no point was it a choice for me. Maybe men who feel it is a choice, find other
men to be a tempation that they have to fight off in order to do right by god? That, or they're just completely ignorant.
You're a twinkie, with a much higher percentage risk of HIV/AIDS, then I don't want you where I may be exposed to your blood and body
Again, HIV/AIDS dies when it comes into contact with oxygen. That's why risk factors for HIV, are unprotected sex, sharing needles, and bad blood
transfusions. Not contact with injured and bleeding people. That's not on the risk factor list, otherwise nobody would help car accident victims, etc.
You don't know who's gay and who isn' t. Please give me a hypathetical, or real life situation in your experience, where another soldiers blood has
entered your blood stream directly, without contacting air first.
And that doesn't even count the problems with their oversensitive BS. That can be the most half-***ed soldier in existence, yet any complaints would
be because he's "special."
Do you really think some feminine, drama queen gay dude is going to join an elite combat unit, much less make it through the intense training program?
DADT being lifted isn't going to cause men with high estrogen levels to join the military, nor will it cause the military to give them special
treatment. The ONLY thing it does is make it to where they aren't discharged simply because they are gay. All other requirements will be the same for
them as anybody else. I'm sure you know that too, it just doesn't help your position as much as painting a picture of a bunch of sissies in pink camo
jumping out of helicopters, then crying about a broken nail when they hit the ground. That's ridiculous.
And what about gay female
soldiers? That's kind of the opposite of the spectrum. Many of them are tough, much tougher than straight female
soldiers. Doesn't make sense to discharge them, using your logic. They aren't exposed to HIV at all either, so god must love them even more than
I don't need the headaches, and a lot of other combat soldiers would quickly come to the same conclusion.
Most of the soldiers who have been discharged for being gay, were
in administrative or support positions.
You can call me intolerant, ignorant, biased, prejudiced, archaic, overly religious, or any other demeaning terminology you want, but I'm not the one
practicing an intentional aberration.
Really not trying to demean you. I do not agree with the decisions our leaders make. I feel our government is bought and paid for, and uses our
military to enforce corporate interests in exchange for "campaign contributions". That said, I do respect honorable soldiers, and respect you for your
service. You were probably raised in a strict, religious household, and that's all you know. Personally though, I find any kind of religious extremism
that promotes more hatred in the world, to be a cancer among humanity. I hope you have an experience in your life, that helps you see that too.
