    I received this e-mail from a friend this morning.

    Interesting country we live in...a gay man or woman, even if he/she is valuable as being fluent in an Arabic language, or a Medic, etc....cannot serve openly as gay in the military of the USA. However, we will train a Muslim man...paying for his medical education...constantly promoting him even though he was on the FBI's watch list...allowing him to show up at the local 7-11 in full Muslim attire - a person who will an hour later go on a shooting spree shouting "Power to Allah" - and he got to where he was freely because what made HIM different was only his RELIGIOUS views, as opposed to something as "horrendous" as sexual orientation. I'm racking my brain trying to think of the last gay group that blew up a major building here in America. F_ _ _ed up, eh?

    The solution to the way gays are treated in this country and in our military is NOT to denigrate another group of people. Your friend's e-mail sucks.

    Why the fuck not, Jesus Mary and Joseph!

    Or how about let the gays in, keep the Muslims out. At least the former doesn't want to kill us.

    I cannot FUCKING BELIEVE HOW DENSE people are being about this shit. Here is the juiciest possible chunk of evidence of the complete FUCKING FAILURE of the multicultural, diversity-crazed approach I can imagine, and even nominally "conservative" characters like Kathianne don't seem to get it.

    Please tell me you get it.

    Because NOT getting it here means PEOPLE FUCKING DIE.

    MULTICULTURALISM IS A DEATH CULT AIMED AT DESTROYING THE WEST.

    Thank you.

    All you have to do to be gay and in the military is keep your mouth shut about how much you love packing fudge. Oh and avoid hitting on same sex subordinates.

    A person needs to hide their sexual orientation. But their religious orientation can be displayed freely,

    Right.

    Pretty obviously this represents a total failure of our military to recognize a potential nutjob in its own midst.

    It wasn't like the guy wasn't telegraphing his discontent, was it?

    This is another military FAIL much as the 9-11 attcks were.

    Now look back on what you've posted. Can you understand why Gay people would be bothered by the system in place? In order to pursue a career they are interested in, they have to deny who they are.

    Personally, I don't think that "being Gay" should be on an application in a checkable form. Why is it anyones business that someone is Gay? What people do sexually is their own business, as long as it's legally consensual. At the core of this issue we are talking about two men fucking. How would that prohibit them from excelling in any position in the military, if they are qualified?

    If this guy did send off so many signals that he was unstable, it is mind boggling that no one looked at him as a threat. I'm not sure that has anything to do with his religion. There are probably percentage wise just as many unstable people in the service as there are in public life.
