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a year after the Defense Department's "Don't ask, don't tell" (DADT) policy toward gay and lesbian service members was repealed, the Pentagon says it will hold its first-ever Gay Pride event Tuesday.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.

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.
Which part of sexual perversion are they "proud" of? Has the pentagon considered the "feelings" of our Arab allies?
By what twisted and warped reasoning did the Pentagon conclude that this is a good thing?
My work friend told me that his daughter and son-in-law, both with over 15 active service, are now getting out. They're disgusted that they will have to maintain a blind eye to the perversions that outright homosexuals will instill all around them. And, by the way, a number of their colleagues are calling it quits too.
***Ever occur to you that maybe some (most) of these guys didnt want to be in the military? Maybe playing homo was a good way to get out?****
At that time (1966) the quotas for the USAF and NAVY were full of volunteers. Drafties went into the ARMY and some in the MARINES.
So these people had to volunteer and got caught within the first few weeks and got the boot.
Interesting note, it was said by our TI that most of them would find a letter from the draft board when they got home.
Same here. Nothing really changed that I can see. People always predect gloom. It bothers me when people say it’ll destroy the military. I’m not thrilled about it, don’t get me wrong. But I think it’s a huge insult to us serving that they think we can’t handle this or anything else without collapsing into tears and anarchy. We’re the US Military. We’ve faced a whole lot worse.
I’m young not mentally retarded. I know which branches the draftees went into. I’m just saying a whole lot of people joined the AF and Navy to avoid combat. And when that life turned out to not be the bed of roses they thought, they took the easy way out and pulled a Klinger. If there is any bright side whatsoever in this situation (and it’s dim), at least wimps no longer have that option.
If you can’t comprehend the logical fallacy inherent in your argument, I can’t help you. The media wants you to believe that half this country is gay. It’s BS. All credible studies point to 2%, tops. Of those, how many do you think are willing to serve? What, and disrupt their beauty sleep? I think your TI might have fed you a few lines for the same reason our TIs told us Angelina Jolie died while we were in basic. It’s fun to mess with baby airmen. There just aren’t that many homos and most of them aren’t bumrushing the recruiting stations...the few who do, probably won’t go through with it once reality sets in. This isn’t an easy life and not everyone’s cut out for it. There are some homos, yeah, but there always have been....mostly lesbians actually. And while they’ll toast in hell with their pervert brothers, they’re not as annoying to work with at least. Heck, at least they’re not always getting knocked up. Most of the homos have been here awhile and aren’t stupid enough to make a scene. The military will stand. We will overcome.
My concern is that in the future there will be pushes to purge the military of Chaplains who oppose the practice of homosexuality. As of now the rules are that Chaplains whose denominations actually take the Word of God seriously do not have to perform homosexual marriage ceremonies. However, if I know leftists if they see one thing or person that stands in the way of what they want they will find somebody who can serve as a plaintiff and file suit (I point to the florist in New Mexico as example). Also, if I ever serve in a command function I may choose not to associate with individuals outside of work if they have behaviors I disagree with (Having sex outside of marriage, constant profanity, drunkenness, etc). Will I face the wrath of the left if I make the same decision regarding homosexuals?
