Active-Duty Military Members To March In Pride Parade
10 News ^ | 23 Jun 2011

Posted on 06/24/2011 12:06:06 PM PDT by mandaladon

SAN DIEGO -- History will be made at this year's San Diego Pride Parade when active-duty military members will march openly through the heart of Hillcrest.

"To my knowledge [it is] the first time in the history of Pride in the United States, ever, that we have said, 'Active duty, you are welcome,'" organizer Sean Sala said. "We want you to be there without fear of repercussions, because we love you."

Sala, an active-duty sailor, said he was bothered to see that police and firefighters were represented in the Pride parade, but not the people who serve this country.

"I thought it was weird because San Diego has the biggest military installation in the United States, and military are public servants as well," he said.

Sala said 200 active-duty members of the military and some veterans have signed up to march at the head of the parade. They will not wear their uniforms because that would violate military regulations. They will instead wear shirts that reflect their branch of service.

"We have made strong emphasis to make sure that this does not violate military policy. Every active-duty person on that float understands that, and every active-duty person on that float respects the military," said Sala.

Why did it take so long for active-duty military to be included in the celebration of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender pride?

"Because of fear and because of nervousness," Sala said. "Because some people thought, 'Oh, if I'm here then people are going to think it's because I'm gay.'"

Sala said many of those who signed up to march are straight. His parents, who both served in the military, will be among them.

The Pride Parade will be held July 16 at 11 a.m.

Why can’t the gays just be gay and go on with their lives ?...Why do they need to call so much attention to themselves?

Will they be dressed in thier camoflaged diapers? The San Diego sodomite “pride” parade is a truly disgusting event. San Diego firemen sued because the bull dyke fire chief forced them to participate in it and listed to “Oh fireman, show me your hose.” I have to go puke.

The insanity in taking pride in such dehumanizing sexual acts is unbelievable in a nation that is founded on the laws of nature and God’s laws.

They are so extremely ignorant of history and ancient Greece and pretending the homosexuality in Afghanistan, which they are well aware of.....is NOT connected with rampant pederasty....to condition and seduce boys into the “lifestyle”.

They pretend that homosexuality in the priesthood has NO connection to the mass molestation of boys.....this lack of common sense is connected to cultural Marxism and that political correct fascism which allows no intellectual debate on the issue....it is moral relativism...what feels good, do it! Destruction of the morality of the future generation who will have no virtue.

These military, along with the homosexual community, advocate child abuse. They are advocating evil, for as the identical twin studies proved, homosexuality is learned—caused by the environmental forces which —in a homosexual’s case—demeans their sexual identity in a myriad of ways. They are conditioning the young boys who witness the parade, that something vile is very natural and “good”. The Bible is correct.......there will come a time when evil is called good, and good, evil. I always thought that was a ridiculous prediction....but the Bible proves once again, what wisdom it contains....and what great understanding of the nature of man.

It would be a definable & explainable thing if it was still classified in the DSM-IV where it should be, as a mental disorder.

As a law enforcement officer I haven't met a homosexual or homosexual couple that hasn't been mentally deranged in more than one way. Homosexual couples always have violent domestics and/or suicidal episodes, homosexuals by themselves usually have suicidal episodes, & there is always drug abuse. The biggest child sex abuse case we had in our town was perpetrated by a homosexual man who got 35 years in the federal pen.

Those are the bare minimums, in the bigger cities you have even worse gay-on-gay crime. It needs to be put back into the DSM-IV where it belongs, as a psychiatric mental disorder.

Simple biological imperative... attract mates. If we assume that there aren't very many of them that is.

Does anyone else notice that these events are being called “Pride Parades”, rather than “gay pride parades”? Are the organizers trying not to emphasize the homosexuality of the events?

Or, is the gay community co-opting the word “pride” the way they co-opted the word “gay”?

Do you ever hear the word “gay” used anymore, except to mean homosexual? Do you ever hear it used in the traditional way anymore?

Will the word “pride” now only mean homosexual trans-whatever pride?????

They go out of their way to promote themselves because they know they are WRONG. They have to tell themselves over and over and over what they are doing is OK. But they KNOW they are WRONG.

And I want all those who would promote tolerance and acceptance to know that I am voting HELL NO against ANY sick nasty fag bastards, bastardesses or plain old WTF is THAT-esses.

So Help Me God.

It’s interesting to see how society has accepted, and/or been forced to accept, all of this.

At the time of the very first homosexual parade in San Diego, the organizers were told by police that they couldn’t guarantee their safety during the march. Times were very different then. The police of the time were fearful that the sight of a homosexual march would trigger violence.

Of course nowadays, the cops are there as they would be at any public event, just to direct traffic and keep an eye on things. There’s no threat of public revulsion and/or violence directed at these marchers anymore.

Some are even promoting it as a fun family event. After the parade, there will be a big public celebration in Balboa Park. Bring the family, we are told.

Okay..............

Gays like to call attention to themselves so that other gays can spot them.

Certainly Straights know what the other gender is, but the only way a gay can spot another is if they are out and calling attention to the fact they are gay.

The word Gay bothers me a lot I have never met one who was truly happy and most have issues.The most openly gay girl in my neighborhood has given herself a boy’s regular haircut is 5’2” and weighs 180 lbs. easy. I would like to tell her she doesn’t have to have a beer belly to act like a boy. I don’t suspect she is very pop[ular as a sex object even for other Lesbians.

Well expect her to declare that she is ‘transgendered’ any day now; since the lesbian thing isn’t working out that is. Chastity Bono is probably her new hero.

The malignant cancer has fully been introduced into the armed forces, thanks to Obama. Next up, a slew of Hollywood films and tv-shows about fag soldiers. The military will be synonymous with homosexuality.

As for the pervert ‘soldiers’ who decide to participate in this parade of devient filth, too bad these scumbags came home alive, allowing them the freedom to dishonor their uniform.

Here in Houston, the daily Rat run paper ran a list of the events including a jockstrap fashion show with the worn undergarments to be auctioned off at the end of the night.

Crass crud culture is being celebrated by perverts. The same crowd that mock those who have faith in a higher power (what they call “superstition”, “fantasy”, and “make believe”).

Meanwhile they pretend to be women, dressing up in makeup and padded bras and no one is supposed to think anything of it.

Because it is an “inclusive” pride event, not just “gays” but lesbians, bisexuals, and transgenders...

Heterosexuals need not apply. Lousy breeders. < /sarc >

I agree— TO my understanding the UCMJ has NOT yet been
trash-canned. The Law is still as it was when I served on active duty-except the crap of DADT. If I am right then one cannot openly declare they are homosexual -nor wear military uniform in a Gay Pride event without being recommended for
discharge. Es verdad such action would require leaders willing to request inquiry leading to Court Martial And those seem to have been forced out.

That's exactly what they're doing.

I saw a bumper sticker this morning: "Hokie Pride", in rainbow letters.

I guarantee, the fellow was not advertising that he was proud of having attended (presumably graduated from) the Virginia Polytechnic Institute.

He was advertising that he is a faggot who had attended said institution.

It was all about the faggotry.

Not since my grandmother passed in ‘83. She was always telling us stories about the early days of the 20th, and what a gay time they had. And I know she didn’t mean any homo thing.

They started decades ago in conditioning children that it is evil to discriminate. Remember Polyanna...with Haley Mills......it was against preachers calling sin, a sin (he was so MEAN!!!!).....this conditioning has destroyed moral principles....so if you are honest and a true Christian, you get called a bigot and hater.

This is on purpose....we live in a fascist country where we have no freedom of thought or speech. Speech codes and Alinskyite tactics to shut down dialogue is intentional—to destroy us from within so they can create a one world currency and government. It is obvious. Christians are too independent and self-sufficient and responsible....they need dysfunctional people who will willingly be slaves and sell out their fellow man.

It is why they are repealing DADT....to eliminate the Christians...they will have to be silent or kicked out....then our military will be equivalent to the Russian atheists or the Nazi homosexual Brownshirts....inhumane, evil and disgusting—even made Patton puke. Their immorality makes it easy for the government to use them to kill their own citizens...which our Christian military would not have done.

It took generations of demeaning Christians....forcing God out of the schools in the fifties and out of the public square and removing morality from the schools which John Dewey did intentionally. Remove morality from all decisions....when morality and virtue were the reasons Washington set up public schools in the first place.

They replaced God with “feel good, do it”. The cultural Marxists are doing it to create a vulgar, dysfunctional mass of ignorant people who are addicted to their sensual pleasures....they are easy to control with throwing freebees, like abortions, condoms, etc. They just want their drugs and sex and they don’t give a damn about family, relationships and the future. The radical homosexuals are disgusting and evil and selfish narcissists.

They created a new moral code where it is WRONG to call Communism EVIL. Even with a blood trail of 100,000,000 dead inside 100 years. It is WRONG to call abortion EVIL even with 50,000,000 dead in just 40 years in the United States.

The Left is NOT about Human Rights, Tolerance, or justice.

Those who are unrepentantly criminal, seek public acceptance of their corruption, while those who are corrupt, but seek righteousness have had a perfect solution, namely turning away from unrighteousness through faith in Christ.

The unrepentantly corrupt run to their sin and will further degenerate.
