Posted on 06/25/2012 5:22:08 PM PDT by moonshot925
Less than a year after the Defense Department's "Don't ask, don't tell" (DADT) policy toward gay and lesbian service members was repealed, the Pentagon says it will hold its first-ever Gay Pride event Tuesday.
The event is likely to be a more toned-down version of the Gay Pride parades that take place every June in cities around the worldsans the flags, wigs, beads and boas. (Though some have suggested rainbow camo or berets.)
Instead, the Pentagon has planned a somber-sounding panel discussion entitled "The Value of Open Service and Diversity," according to a Defense Department press release.
The event will also have a keynote speaker: the Pentagon's top lawyer Jeh Johnson, who co-chaired the 2010 study on how a DADT repeal might affect combat operations, housing and other issues, according to the Washington Post.

The Lord’s truth remains and His standards are unchanging. His truth doesn’t change with the wills, whims and overt sins of a culture or people.
How long Oh, Lord?
If people think Romney is going to fix this, they are in for a big surprise.
Romney is pro abortion, pro gay marriage, and pro gay adoption. He compelled Catholic hospitals to issue abortifacient pills. He forced the Catholic Church to stop adoption services after 109 years because they would not let gays adopt innocent children. In MA Romney forced children, starting at 5 yrs old, to be taught about the gay lifestyle. The parents were not allowed to opt out their children.
Just like in Kings of the Old Testament, we need God and not a King. If we trust in man and not God, we WILL be destroyed.
Every day the news bears witness to what you have just stated. May the Lord have mercy and keep His own people who follow His commandments. (John 14:15)
let homos try snuggling up with the enemy in an islamic country. that will go over real well.
Queers spread diseases, are a security risk (Bradley Manning which everyone stayed silent on since gay is officially OK now), they usually have other issues (most screwed up people come as clusterfu$%s), they are not there to serve their nation but to achieve affirmation of their behavior...
But the DoD is led by self ingratiating and narcissistic politically minded idiots, so they will ram this down the service members throat, pun intended,
Mitt may flip flop in the face of public opinion (the Catholic church didn’t exactly have a lot of vocal support among the people of Massachusetts) and do something that, if not conservative, is less than screaming liberal. Barack is forward left full steam and no flip flop, damn the people’s opinion. It takes Barack to make Mitt look even close to tolerable.
Second that. Where did you go thru basic? Certainly not at Lackland with the rest of us. A unit full of out-processing homos? Was that next to the unicorn flight?
FWIW No one much likes serving next to airman Gaga, but I haven’t met him/her yet, thank God. There a few homos we all know about. They keep it to themselves. Long as that happens, we’re the military. We do take whole “duty” and “following orders” thing pretty serious and it’s pretty offensive to accuse us of murder. Everyone likes to tell stories about guys falling off ships but it’s always “my best friend’s, neighbor’s, uncle” who saw it happen.
***Where did you go thru basic? Certainly not at Lackland with the rest of us. A unit full of out-processing homos?***
Lackland 1966. Yes, a barracks of out-processing homos. When they went through the chow line some had on necklaces, lipstick, ect.
Our TI came off his authoritarian position for a few minutes and said that things went on in THAT barracks too disgusting to mention.
“Obamanation has come to destroy America.”
Roberts bumbled on the word “faithfully”, such that Roberts said, “I will execute the office of president” and Obama said, “I will execute...”
Execute, i.e. destroy. If the word “faithfully” had remained to modify execute, execute would look as it should, meaning to carry out or perform, not “to destroy”.
Here’s how Tuesday’s oath went:
Roberts: ... that I will execute the office of president to the United States faithfully ...
Obama: ... that I will execute ...
Roberts: ... the off — faithfully the pres — the office of president of the United States ...
Obama (at the same time): ... the office of president of the United States faithfully ...
So much for the freedom earlier generations of men in the military fought for.
Indeed. As Joseph Sobran put it, why take “pride” in a disorder? There is no heterosexual pride. It’s just taken for granted. Even homosexual persons have to engage in heterosexuality in order to reproduce themselves(whether the old fashioned way or thru IVF).
Indeed. The psycho-communist American left has succeeded in hurting our nation where Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia failed.
The word “diversity” is used by the “progressives” so much, I’ve gotten sick of it. Just reading the word is enough to bring up one’s lunch. Liberals have practically made a religion out of “diversity”(steady,stomach,steady).
Not always. I was in 13 years 1976 to 1988 and I can remember one incident particularly because I was interviewed by the NIS afterwards. In that case, a guy really did go off the portside aft sponsor at night.
That one was eventually ruled a suicide and it might have actually been one, too. But he was queer and annoying people about it so the scuttlebutt going around that he was helped over the side.
In another case that made a big splash in the Navy Times, a squid took a ball-peen hammer to the head of a person in his division that had taken homosexual liberties on him after they had smoked some dope together in a fanroom.
Ever occur to you that maybe some (most) of these guys didn’t want to be in the military? Maybe playing homo was a good way to get out? I don’t know. I’ve never seen a gay man wear lipstick. Even in a gay bar. Except drag queens but those freaks aren’t joining the military...it would ruin their nails. We’re an all volunteer force. I don’t know anyone who didn’t know exactly what they were getting into so maybe we that’s why we aren’t full of freaks wearing lipstick to get thrown out. And I went through basic in ‘02. I think maybe my experience is a little more pertinent to today’s military. Since I’m in it. No offense but the world has changed a little since ‘66. We all know “gays” as they like to call themselves. We grew up watching them on MTV, my soccer coach was gay, everyone has a gay friend...mostly girls do anyway, they think it’s “cool”. Most people my age don’t care. My parents may not have paid for my college but they did something a lot more important, they taught me the Bible. So I do care. But I’m a minority round here. But there are some of us here. Fighting the good fight. Preaching the Word whenever we can get away with it.
And THAT was always his goal. I just don’t plan on giving up the fight just yet. Knowledge is power.
Homos make up maybe 2 percent of the population. Of those, I don’t see all that many jumping to join the military. From what I understand, a lot of ‘em can’t even admit it to themselves and either stay in the “closet” (where I’d be fine if they stayed) or don’t choose to give in to the perversion till their mid twenties or even later. I just find it hard to believe that there were enough on one base at any one time to make up a whole unit.
The writing was on the wall!
We will not have a military worth crap in a generation. We’ll be fighting to defend ourselves in our streets and towns. The War of 2012 starts in November.
