It’s an Obama World… Gay Flag Flies at Afghan Base But the Christian Cross Is Banned
Gateway Pundit ^ | 3/29/2012

Posted on 03/28/2012 11:41:28 PM PDT by My Favorite Headache

It’s an Obama world. The gay flag flew over a U.S. military base in Afghanistan this week.

The Pentagon forced an Army post in Afghanistan to remove a cross on its worship tent in December. It was offensive to liberal atheists.

They can only get away with this because the local population has no idea what this idiotic symbol stands for.

That’s just the way it goes when the President of the United States is a faggot.

A little faggot with a yellow spine, answering to his Communist handlers.

We have a TRAITOR in the White House, simple as that.

er if anything was to force the muslims to be upset this is it.

ive said this before, but the first thing the next President has to do is overturn this insane law of openly having homosexuals.

The other day it was reported they are having queer night on base but of course the MSM will never cover this and the military has been told to hush up any problems with homosexuals now.

Romney is for this crap and then tries to tell us he is a conservative

my sons are now not joining and I will be the last oserve in the family tradition, I still know guys serving and they said that they have had enough of the PC crap and this homo agenda in the military.

There has already been a number of problems at bases but the military is shutting everyone up now I wonder where that order came from

What’s the betting most of the comments have been removed from the FB woman and she is trying to show just the positives.

She wants attention then maybe we should all give her attention.

just reading those comments show how demented these people are.
Yes they fly it to express their love and liberty for all, er we’re on about the same sex having sex, like a man having sex with another man which promotes sickness, disease etc and these people think it is normal

If this soldier is normal then why feel to show a homo flag , seems hubby is doing something else when she is not around and she hasn’t quite clicked on.

yes he can and most certainly should.

Problem is that Romney is for all this and that’s why we have to stop Romney too.

The survey was bogus for this, the while investigation for this was never done and this was a social issues forced onto the military with a few PC idiots like Gates pushing it.

First thing the next President should do is overturn this insane law, most still do not want it, the army is infested with girlie men and pansies now, thankfully the marines are still holding out but this crap has to stop.

There is no way God will let this stand. People who say this nation can recover its lost glory are just delusional now. Rampant degradation, perversion and all forms of corruption are the basis of the American way now. A comment here earlier is so true. Take down a cross because its offensive, complain about a gay flag and your an intolerant homophobe. Enough is enough. How much more will we sit and take. A quote from a recent episode of Justified comes to mind when the villian is asked what he’s going to do about some stuff going on he hates. He smiles and says, “I’m going eat a big steaming plateful of S**t and smile.” Well I’m not smiling anymore.

The comments on the page are nauseating.

A hoard of useful idiots fawning and preening over what a “beautiful sentiment” this is ....

My God, what have we allowed to be done to our military??

One of the comments is telling . ..”Wow, Great but also a bit scary.” or some such thing.

Yeah, bud — guess that means perhaps YOU and your buttbuddies just MIGHT be expected now to serve ....Oh, you mean none of this actually meant you were truly interested in serving? Oh, I get it now. :(

military and cops eventually all become loyal to their paychecks and their benefits and pensions....look at any totalitarian govt and you'll see the loyal military...

high ranking military now are being rewarded for being good little sheeple....

imagine this so called soldier will get his promotion soon...

all it takes is for some of the officiers to be homos....they'll protect and promote their own...

this is what happened to howood....the homos took control and "meated" out movie roles, etc to those favored....IMO of course....

but eventually, we'll need to force people to join the military and when you force people to do something, they get uppity ....

and don't rely on leftist cowards to fight for this country.....maybe against their own people, but someplace like Afghanistan?...not in a million years...

Pentagon spokesperson Commander William Speaks confirmed the cross was removed and told POLITICO, “The removal was, in fact, in accordance with Army regulations” and pointed out that the Army chaplain manual prohibits permanent display of religious symbols.

“Distinctive religious symbols, such as crosses… will not be affixed or displayed permanently on the chapel interior, exterior or grounds,” reads the manual.

Huh?

As it has been many moons (as my mentor Rush is fond of saying) since I served (some 40+ years ago) and as I can't exactly remember if the chapels on the many USAF installations I served on had crosses or not, can anyone edify me as to whether this has always been the official policy or something his Neo-Commie, Fascist Admin has instituted on his own?

it’s really sad isn’t it.

My oldest was ready for the Citadel, he was going for West Point but wanted to stay south , now those plans have changed and the military will miss out on some good boys joining.

I doubt Romney will over turn this but at least he could do a proper review of this and then listen to the top Generals of which was never done.

Next it will be overturn DOMA, get homosexual marriage in the country all around and then force Catholics etc to marry them and then have this taught to little kids in the schools.

I'm honestly afraid. Until fairly recently I thought the miltiary was a place where there was respect, if not for the Gospel as such, then at least for the natural virtues; and a society which for over 200 years has had its own traditions (which are also often supports for the natural virtues).

I don't have enough perspective to really know anything about military culture.

But this looks bad.

Anyone know if a new president can reverse the DADT damage obama has done?

Doubt it. Very little gov't regulations are ever really repealed. Maybe changed slightly at most.

Face it, candidates say the will but once they get in they will bend to lobbying pressure.

Note that it’s an “interfaith chapel” chapel.

That means it’s the designated building for all services for all faiths. Greek Orthodox to Jewish to Buddhist.

That cross is only applicable to some Christian faiths, though. And they do not have ownership of the building.

So, I’d say that whatever religion is conducting services at the moment should have their symbol on the door. And then, when it’s over, it’s taken down so the next religion can place their symbol on the door.

Same goes for the interior.

Which explains why the manual states: “Distinctive religious symbols, such as crosses… will not be affixed or displayed permanently on the chapel interior, exterior or grounds”.

Or, are you willing to pony up the extra dough so that all the religions in the military have their own separate chapels on all bases? Or advocate that only Catholics, Protestants, and Evangelicals may join the military?

it’s frigging sick that the establishment puts up a north east liberal , then backs him, then attacks conservatives who run against him and then they wonder why on earth most of the base is fed up and not excited to come out and vote, give money or boots on the ground.

Are they trying to tell us that they could nto get a better person to run who is a good conservative or is it their way of saying STFU to the base , you hate obama and that means you will vote for us as we know best besides we know many homosexuals and cross dressers and they’re nice , we take their money , we go to their cocktail elitist parties and we will like them because all we care about is our own pockets and money.

It’s been quiet because nothing’s really changed, operationally.

There’s been about 30 minutes of on-line training and that’s it.

Since sexual behavior of any sort isn’t tolerated on-duty, there’s been no change there. And since sexual behavior isn’t authorized in the barracks (yeah, yeah, I know that’s an unenforceable rule)... if any gay sex happens, those unhappy about it can complain about the ‘sexual behavior’ and get the faggots some paperwork for violating standing orders.

So, the net effect is pretty much a big zero, so far.

Of course, if gay marriage is resolved in their favor, then we’ll see how happy our folks are when Mr. And Mr. Homo Sexual move in right next door on military family housing.

oh there is problems, hell there is a problem right now with a queer officer in Kabul.
Talked to a pal over there the other night on Skype who said the military is trying to keep it silent and put a gag order on those near the case.

In VT there was a homosexual party on base.

There has been other problems concerning homosexuals too, even in the marines where two women were trying to get married quarters .

The MSM will never cover the real facts about what is happening the queers are hoping that enough military personal get to know these queers and become pals with them and then they can have their minds changed with the usual crap like so many say”I know a few homosexuals and they are nice so let them be”

You do realize it has been estimated that we will need to have at the very least 3 million conservatives who are going to school today to become a teacher to have any remaining or lasting effect of a normal or straight agenda in our schools?

The answer to everything...more Conservative educators...tons more.
