In your post you’ve discussed those subjects more than he did by asking a policy question.
I just don’t get the freaking out. And if you can’t see the difference between pedophilia and two consenting adults doing whatever gross thing they feel like doing together, I don’t know what to say.
Why don’t you petition for him to be tossed out of the military? Does it bother you that gays have served and died to protect your life and liberties? How about non-gays who’ve done things you and I wouldn’t approve of—not every person who serves in the military shares your values.
I don’t get people who freak out over these people anymore than I get what these people are into. Plenty of folks around here probably do things in their own homes I would object to. I couldn’t care less what consenting adults do, even if I find it disgusting. All I ask is that they mind their own business and keep out of mine, and as long as they are not hurting anyone but themselves, it’s none of my business, or yours, frankly.
Just asking a question about a real policy isn’t the end of the world. It sure won’t stop me from voting for representatives who oppose that policy. And I’m just not getting where people get all this anger about something I never think about...until I read your post.
Two consenting adults do NOT have God's permisssion to do anything they please.
Minding ones own business doesn't usually include announcing a sexual preference, that is asking for a reaction, either of acceptance, rejection, or silence (silence, that's odd, eh--reverse DADT, but they are allowed to break the DA part).
It can be hurtful to the one being addressed, because now you will be forced to hold your opinion, of something that may be highly immoral to you, and if opinion is spoken of non-acceptence--judgement will be rendered--GUILTY-- non-pc homophobe hate crime.
Held up by the media as terrible evil(like this article in several papers, for example) or the military guy who has a negative opinion of homosexuals losing his job if he isn't silent
Just asking a question about a real policy isnt the end of the world.
If a question is asked for the sole reason of an answer--there is no need to declare sexual preference. Just as Santorum stated. The man expected preferential treatment and I highly suspect he wanted to get a reaction. That is not pure of heart and only seeking an answer.
Will Christian beliefs be as protected as sexual preference?
