I am glad they passed this. Now it is time to stop talking about it and to never bring it up again. Soldiers are soldiers. There are perverts who are straight and perverts who are gay. Most gay people would never dream of acting unprofesionally and those that would would probably not end up serving in the military. It is and always was a non-issue.

Is or is God not infallible? And are we or are we not all created in the image of God? Who are any of us to question the grand scheme of things? I know this for a fact......the message Jesus brought to the world was to love one another.....no exceptions, it's unequivocal.


I agree. Just wondering why that fact of life in the universe exists. And, still no answer.

Yeah, right...all supporters of this ruling ask the same questions you are. Not only are you a terrible liar, you actually think people here are so stupid as to buy your shiat.



Squatch, in over your head by definition and by every aesthetic known to anyone who is the least bit creative. Once again, and hells yes I'm going to say it, I know more gay folks then you ever will and am friends with many and it has never been a problem with me. Heck, back in the 1980s when 2am closing times wasn't getting it done, depending on when the shrooms kicked in, the only afterhours dance clubs open until 5am were of the gay variety and they were a blast. My and my friend Lyn would New Order it up and sweat it out. Big fun, and the friendships spun off from there. Not a problem. Where did you think I got my gooseberry clippings last summer??

By the way, here's something right up your alley in the WSJ;

Although if it were me, there's an extra "gay" in there...

Surrrrrrreeeee it isnt. You support this so much, you have just been sitting here making bigoted, ignorant comments about the issue. Are you afraid to speak your mind. You are currently talking out of both sides of your face. Past that, who the **** cares how many gay people you know and what does that have to do with anything at all? You brag about how many blacks you know but that still hasnt stopped you from thinking you were the technical advisor to that 'jive' scene in "Airplane". All the bigots and the racists love to brag about their ____________ friends. You are no exception.

This is incorrect. See ST's post above. A phobia centers around irrational fear. The opposite of "homophobe" isn't "heterosexual", it's "homosexual." Your posts may say more about your sexuality than anyone else's. Often times the irrational fear centers on the phobic's uncertainty or lack of confidence concerning their own sexual identity. Is there something you're wanting to tell us?

A good friend of mine is a gay Air Force veteran, and I celebrate the day that hard-working, intelligent professionals like him aren't kicked out of the service for nothing more than being who they are.

My friend served under DADT, and it sounds like it was a very conflicted time for him. Even so, he did his job well and always behaved in a professional manner, as do the many gay service members who serve valiantly every day. He is now at the very top of his profession, probably one of the top 10 in his field. A more competent and reliable person you will not meet.

I think a lot of people are going to be very surprised when this goes into effect....and nothing happens. While some gay people can be flamboyant by nature, that isn't the kind of person who joins the Army. In other countries when they allowed gay people to serve, there wasn't some avalance of people coming out and "acting gay" and painting their tanks pink. They just continued to do their jobs, like they always have.

The best line I heard from a gay friend was, "There's gay, and then there's parade gay." Nothing wrong with camp. Actually, even after DADT, there will still be a lot who still won't come out anyway.

Ok lets throw this monkey wrench into the fan...
new testament
Romans 1 18-27
1st Corinthians 6-9

old testament
leviticus 18-22 and 20-13



Now as most of you know I kinda follow a different look at these things religion that is but our country is founded on the bible we swear on it to testify at court , "in God we trust" is written on our money, so how does this all fit ? I have seen alot of talk here with no mention of the bible ..... In Native culture you could be anything you want but if you wanted to be a woman or feminine you usually took up a tipi and became a house keeper not a warrior..other than that I can see the distraction and given the mental way war is fought Hmmmm well it will be interesting ...

As I've stated before, I personally believe the Bible was written by man....divine influence or not....and much of man's bias and the culture around at the time was written into it. We ARE ALL God's children, created in God's image no exceptions which means gay people are just as much part of the divine as anyone else. As for the military....I have every expectation they will go on as before and not a single soldier will be recruited into the gay pride.

And let me please remind everyone on here....some of us have already admitted we have gay or lesbian relatives who we love very much. Life is hard enough for everyone without letting prejudice and bias add more hurt.
