"Are there wonderful Americans who happen to be homosexual serving in the military? Yes," he told the Senate Appropriations Committee during a hearing focused on the Pentagon's 2008 war spending request.
"We need to be very precise then, about what I said wearing my stars and being very conscious of it," he added. "And that is, very simply, that we should respect those who want to serve the nation but not through the law of the land, condone activity that, in my upbringing, is counter to God's law."Anti-war protesters sitting behind Pace jeered the four-star general's remarks with some shouting, "Bigot!"
This makes me laugh, If you don't want to know what someone believes, don't ask them...
This makes me cry:
Pace noted that the U.S. Military Code of Justice prohibits homosexual activity as well as adultery. Harkin said, "Well, then, maybe we should change that."
Harkin, you are a genius. Further proof that the demonrats have no respect for what the military stands for.
I really ought to start an S-List.
