Associated Press ^ | July 21, 2012

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Some of the loudest cheers at San Diego's gay pride parade were for active-duty troops marching in military dress.

Saturday's celebration marks the first time U.S. service members are participating in a gay pride event while decked out in full uniform.

It didn’t do a whole lot for military pride. I guess that isn’t all that important anymore in Barry’s Amerika.

This is part of the remaking of the American military to be one that will support Obama against any coming domestic resistance.

This exception to the prohibition of political advocacy in uniform is a disgrace.

The homosexuals are not equal. They are elevated.

The reaction and reception back at the barracks for those marchers would be interesting to see. Any mention of which service they were?

This is also at the feet of SCOTUS. Remember they struck down the “Stolen Valor” act as unconstitutional, so it’s entirely possible that some if not all of these fags aren’t really in the military but simply pretending to be.

Our government is against us.

The military has always forbidden service members to wear the uniform for events like this.

This is an outrage.

I’ve been making the same point for some time. Our current military is largely made up of people who probably would not (atleast not want) to take up arms against our own people. Some have made comments about the disproportionate number of white males from the south that have made up our military. I’m not sure about the technical number there, but the point is made.

With Obama getting his way on this issue and the demographics change taking place, our military will soon be made up of people who would love nothing more than to take up arms against....oh lets say......bible believing Christians. It would not surprise me in the least.

You can believe it's coming. What damage ObaMao has done to the soul of this country. I'm watching the destruction of the country I grew up in. And destroyed with "cheering and marching".

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke+17:26-37&version=KJV

Luke 17:26-37

King James Version (KJV)

26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

31 In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back.

32 Remember Lot's wife.

33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

34 I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.

35 Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

36 Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

37 And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together.

“I’m really getting discouraged.”

Yeah, I know. Me too. But encourage yourself in the Lord. This Earth and the things in it are temporal, but eternity lasts forever. We will reign and rule forever.

As one preacher I know says, you have much more living AHEAD of you than behind you.

King James Version (KJV)

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.

15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.

16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

We have the weapons and the command structure and many fine patriots.

But ObaMao and his minions are destroying the soul and the will of the military. They are destroying traditional marriage. They are praising antichrist religion under the guise of “christianity”. They have come to destroy everything America once was under the guise of “liberalism”.

And yet they act like control freaks as Food Nazis and Healthcare Nazis. Quite telling.

This is definitely not your father’s military and America is becoming a country most of us don’t recognize anymore. I seriously doubt one election will substantially change the downward spiral but we have to try while we still can. Obama being defeated in November will be an important first step. Whether America can eventually revive is doubtful but not entirely impossible. I’m willing to try rather than simply giving up and crying doom and gloom all day long.

That’s the whole idea. 0bama doubles down on forcing his gayness down the military’s throat.. The heteros leave, hetero enlistments decline, and the CIC gets his gay army to follow any order issued to them, including killing all Tea Party members.

BINGO! You may go to the head of the class! Think back to the 70s when hippies loved to slouch around wearing odd pieces of military garb they’d scrounged from somewhere; and if the jacket, for instance, still had rank chevrons on the sleeve, or a name tag sewn on, so much the better.

“Commander Kent Blade, who will retire this fall after 26 years in the Navy, said being able to march in uniform was a perfect culmination of his career.

The Defense Department said it was making the allowance for the San Diego parade because organizers had encouraged military personnel to march in their uniform and the event was getting national attention.”

Bless our Government's little heart. And bless Commander Blade, who is so very happy and proud that now the nation knows where he puts his thingie.

I'm sure the Chinese are so impressed and so fearful of the US now that we allow our Troopers to march in Gay Pride Parades. How Cool is That???

PC run amok...I retired shortly after it really started getting rolling in the DoD.

The private sector isn’t much better, especially if you work for a larger or Fortune 500 company.

“D@#$%#@%y” is the cause du jour and will normally trump all else.

I wonder what doors to activity within political events this will open? Queers on parade is nothing more than an advocacy issue. So it follows that advocacy of other issues while in uniform should be permitted as well.

Then again, I’ve always favored not being allowed to participate in these types of events while in uniform. It doesn’t promote good order and discipline.

Earlier I was gonna state that it's becoming harder to recognize it as it once was. Somebody later in the thread said the same thing. When grown people in America do what is pictured below, you know that a new day has dawned. Look at these fools worshiping a man who won't submit a $10 bc to a state or federal civilian court nor a military court. They don't know this man from Cain. And yet they worship him.

Behold the cult of Obama.

Psalm 2

1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,

3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

7 I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
