There is nothing special about sodomy.

Homosexuality is a mental illness. We do not allow with other mental illnesses into the military why do we let these freaks in?

If some weirdo said he was in love with his German Sheppard and sodomized it, we wouldn’t call that special and let him in the military.

Does this mean they are engaged, or just going steady?

Unless there is a diamond involved it’s just going steady. No self respecting gay would settle for less than a carat.

Lt. Choi should have had a minimum four-year commitment after graduating from West Point. Typically, officers make captain in about three years (especially academy grads). I wonder under what circumstances he was released.

Reminds me of Kerry throwing his medals over the fence. Except that now we know the faker didn’t throw his own medals. The pansy knows he’ll get his ring back. All for publicity, folks..

The saddest part is that he cared more about his own sexuality than his country.

So! When Fairy Reid is REPLACED in the Senate, in November, will he have to give the ring back?

Hey.......

But seriously, I worked with a guy that was billeted in the DCM barracks, and a friend of his in Military Intelligence knocks on his door. When he opens it, the guys standing there with a bicycle pump and says "Check this out," and proceeds to pass gas for about thirty seconds. Some stuff ya just can't make up.

Choi is attempting to disgrace West Point as much as Reid has already disgraced the Senate.

"'''I wonder under what circumstances he was released..."

He was "released" because he "came out of the closet" and started "advocating" while he was on active duty a - clear violation of that pesky "Don't Tell" part they hate so much (because it doesn't let them wear their homosexuality on their sleeves, and use it to advantage themselves and disadvantage others).

Since it is still against the UCMJ to actually pubically admit one is a homosexual, the Army discharged him. Legally, of course - but when did the law ever mean anything to the left, except as a means to an end?

Homosexuality is a perversion. This is why so many hide it from every one but their best friends. I think homosexuals are no better then the racist. Both only fight for a single agenda. They only fit one group of people. Not all people.

He can always buy another ring. Will he have to pay back Uncle Sam for the free education?
