I’ve coined a new phrase ... instead of letting the deviants accuse critics of being ‘homo-phobic’, just say that we are not ... instead we are homo-ANNOYED.

So, he is being forced to embrace homosexuality? Isn’t that against the constitution? Why should anyone be compelled by government to embrace something they find vile and disgusting?

Well he can always refuse to work during the Christmas parade if they haven’t outlawed it yet.

“Gay rights”
There are three stages of societal change;
I. Acknowledgement
II. Acceptance
III. Participation

I refuse to play along.....

Just like the firefighters in San Diego who were forced by their Lesbo Chief to drive their rig in a gay parade. I think the FFs won their case.

If the LEO is truly refusing to work this parade on moral grounds, the state is without question persecuting him.

One thing that amazed me when I looked through the internets to see what the Folsom Street Fair was all about, was the cops standing idly by while gays had sex on the public street.

IIRC, there was a cop standing right near the stage where a performer was showing his artistic talents with a basket of assorted veggies and a big can of Crisco

What’s to investigate?,

Insubordination.

Failure to obey and execute a lawful command.

Not agreeing with the brass here, but Police organizations are paramilitary in structure.

I’m reminded of a story about Aloise Hitler Jr (Half Brother of Adolph)

In the early 30s he ran a beer hall in a building he rented from a Jewish landowner. Hitler wanted to knock out a wall to expand the business and hold party rallies. The landowner told him no. Hitler found a friendly judge who not only allowed him to knock out the wall but effectively stripped the Jew of ownership. The Jewish owner fled the country not long after.

The Mormons have embraced gay marriage? I suppose only if a guy can have more than one “wife” all is cool?

“Failure to obey and execute a lawful command”

That is the Nuremberg defense and is also state infringement of religion in violation of the 1st amendment. I dare them to force muslim cooks to make bacon or mullahs to perform gay marriages.

I have preferred “homo-disgusted” for over a decade now.

The bumper sticker reads:

Don’t confuse “hate” with DISGUST.

He’s not forced to embrace anything except his duty to keep the peace.

A guy has more than one wife and the genders aren’t confused, with SSM, either or both persons play both or either gender roles. Confusing right? Mother is still a mother, and father is still a father, read your Bible for once.

As for Mormons, let me ask you. Do Southern Gay Pride Parades like New Orleans mean that Southern Protestants and Evangelicals embrace homosexuality, or is it the liberal activists on the court bench’s and among the judges?

‘homo-phobic’

easier and more fulfilling to simply state that i aint afraid of queers, but poopy butt sex between two men is disgusting...

Well, I’ll hand it to him for standing up for himself. he had to know the world of sh*t they would bring down on him.

For once, maybe the Blue Brotherhood will close ranks around a brother officer for a good reason.

We’ll see.

Nothing better to do then spew slander and lies about someone else's religion ?

Provide a documented quote - or stop the lying.
