WASHINGTON (AP) -- In the course of a year, Marine Capt. M. Matthew Phelps says he went from being a gay man "in the closet," afraid of being discharged, to invitee at the White House gay pride reception, drinking champagne with his commander in chief.

Phelps told his story Tuesday at the Pentagon's first-ever event to recognize the service of gay and lesbian troops.

Well, isn’t that special.

I’m glad I’m retired. I don’t have to deal with this.

“A year later ... I, Capt. Matthew Phelps, was invited to attend this pride reception at the White House,” Phelps said of the June 15 reception hosted by President Barack Obama.

Let there be no doubt, Obama has come to destroy America.

What's his MOS? 6969 - Adjutant's Bugger Boy?

Interesting coincidence: the “top video” at the AP website is, “Sandusky’s Son Tells. . . .”

So, a gay Marine meets our gay President. How nice.

Weren’t we just supposed to TOLERATE these perverts.

Now, we need to Celebrate their perversions.

You would think that these degenerates had invented a cure for cancer.

What can you say, Sandusky was also in the closet for many years as was the recent outed gay icon in San Fran.

Every Saturday night, the officers used to get together and smoke cigars and watch movies," he said. "Of course, their thoughts would all drift to home and everyone would talk about their families and their wives and the letters that they got from their kids - and I sat the in the back of the room not talking to anybody

.. cause they were normal and you were a man with poor impulse control and gender identity issues that found solace in multiple sex partners and self loathing.

Wow.. I wonder if you get in trouble for calling him a c#ck sucker?

I posted this on another thread and we should insure that every parent of every recruit or boot that is enlisting DELAY for 6-9 months if possible. DO NOT TAKE EARLY ENTRY AND DELAY, DELAY, DELAY.

For Marines tell them that you heard that the CO was a homosexual and you wanted to know if policies and procedures were in place to prohibit sexual harassment or sexual exposure to homosexuals in showers or places that would make your son feel threatened or uncomfortable.

Ask if there are any current or former DI's or senior NCO's that are admitted homosexuals and what living and bathing arrangements are being made to accommodate those who might feel threatened or harassed by homosexuals in positions of authority.

Ask for written policies and procedures for reporting for senior NCOs and how are they acting in a proactive manner to insure that predatory homosexuals are not in a position to coerce recruits.

Pass this on. e-mail it , fax it and spread it as far and wide as you can to every senior in high school, ROTC cadet and any others that might be enlisting or signing contracts. Just CRATER the recruiters and make sure that they tell their COs that it's all because parents are afraid of faggot COs and senior NCOs preying on recruits.

We are living in a world turned upside down by the libs and the traitors in the democrat party and the current executive branch of government. Disgusting POS... shame on the flag officers bending over and taking it for their pension. NO HONOR at all.

Allen West provides an outstanding perspective about homosexuals in the military. This clip is a couple of years old but it’s worth viewing again.

Same here earlier this year. Everyone in our unit knew there were four queers and about 12 lesbos. They were proud to be in the DADT briefings.

What makes you think the situation will change in 6 - 9 months? When has a Republican President ever rolled anything back?

"And I thought how amazing is it over the course of a year, I could go from being fired for being who I am, to having champagne with the commander in chief - on cocktail napkins with the presidential seal on it."

More than amazing. Fabulous.

It will not change anything other than create a media event of plummeting enlistments and the spectacle of the Pentagon brass in CYA mode trying to hide the numbers.

The sons and daughters that want to join can still join if they want but the powers that be will see what happens when this policy is in effect and LARGE number of Christian conservatives bolt the armed forces.

Our country is in trouble and the armed forces were the last pillar to be toppled before the SHTF. We will in effect let the Pentagon see the type and level of recruitment that this policy of open homosexuality brings to the recruiting numbers.

I loathe the flag officers that allowed this as well as the RINO legislators who refused to fight the good fight.

The chance of my son dying for these spineless quislings is zero. God, Family, Texas .... and that's it. I am actively discouraging anybody with family to join the armed forces till after the election. Even then I think it's a crap shoot. After all , the spineless moral reprobates will still be in command and have their little gay pretorian guard backed by JAG office to crush all dissent.
