You’ve got to love a general…

March 13th, 2007

… who won’t retreat:

“Marine Gen. Peter Pace, viagra salve doesn’t plan to apologize for telling a newspaper that homosexuality is immoral, generic viagra for sale his senior staff told CNN on Tuesday.Pace, ambulance chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Chicago Tribune on Monday that he supports the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy banning openly gay people from serving in the U.S. armed forces. The general also compared homosexuality to adultery — behavior that is prosecuted in the military, he said.”My upbringing is such that I believe that there are certain things, certain types of conduct that are immoral,” Pace told the Tribune. “I believe that military members who sleep with other military members’ wives are immoral in their conduct.”Pace also told the paper, “I believe that homosexual acts between individuals are immoral, and that we should not condone immoral acts.”

I actually don’t agree with the General (at least not completely), but I love that he won’t back down from what he believes. I’m sick of watching mobs of activists (on both side of the political spectrum) descend on anyone they don’t agree with and try to force that person to retract, rethink, or repent.

As far as I’m concerned, you should say what you mean and mean what you say…even if you don’t necessarily know what the hell you’re talking about.

    From a Biblical standpoint, he’s right on. Sex outside marriage is immoral. Also, practicing homosexuality is, Biblically, abhorrent to God. This is where his personal opinion is from. He also said he believed in the don’t ask don’t tell policy. If they changed it, he’d either follow the new rule, or resign. He’s a man of character, something too many politicians seem to lack today. I admire him.

    So did he say that proven adulterers should be discharged for immorality?

    If he did the exit line is gonna be really long.

    Didn’t he say that adultry is grounds for dismissal? Having been on the receiving end of cheating, I think it’s a lot more immoral than gay sex. (But I’m really not likely to participate in either. ;)
