    Finally a man with some pure American guts has the courage to speak out and reject this travesty of a plan that will demoralize the Military. I agree with him on opposing the repeal on lifting the ban. The military is not a social justice program.


    We don't need a Military Force of soldiers acting like this do we?

    Top US Marine rejects Obama plan to repeal gay ban

    The head of the US Marines said on Thursday he opposed ending the ban on gays serving openly in the military, the first top officer to break openly with President Barack Obama over the issue.

    General James Conway told the Senate Armed Services Committee that he disagreed with Obama's plan to repeal the ban.

    "My best military advice to this committee, to the (defense) secretary, and to the president would be to keep the law such as it is."
    Conway said the current policy worked and any bid to lift the ban should answer the question: "do we somehow enhance the war fighting capabilities of the United States Marine Corps by allowing homosexuals to openly serve?"
    ----
    The chiefs of the US Army and Air Force also expressed doubts about lifting the ban at congressional hearings this week, saying they were concerned about putting the military under further strain in the midst of two wars.

    Your information is wrong:
    1. Conway stated he wanted an immediate freeze on all firings of openly homosexual soldiers in Marines and all service branches.
    2. He supported the 1 year study to be conducted.
    3. He cautioned about ANY changes to the military with two wars going on.

    I agree with the Marine 100%.

    NO where anywhere did he state he objected to lifting the ban.

    Look..Its a done deal.

    Gays will be allowed to openly serve in the military. Just like in every other facet of society. The sky is falling predictions will prove to be wrong. Just like they were wrong when they predicted:

    - Allowing an integrated armed forces will destroy combat effectiveness. Whites cannot serve alongside blacks. They even made the same arguments about having to shower together

    - Allowing women to serve alongside men would destroy combat effectiveness. We are no looking to expand the roles women can play in combat

    Indeed. Why do you think new recruits get referred to as 'ladies'?

    Travesty my ass you homophobic piece of shit. I'd rather have a gay man the military than some hateful bigot moron like yourself representing and protecting this country.

    Doesn't the military teach you to respect the chain of command, and here you are comending someone breaking it
