Update On The Pace Post
As usual, the media gets in there and the story goes off on it's own path...again. See, I read the story about General Pace. I read the remarks he made. In the article, he said that he was giving a personal opinion about homosexual and adultery type acts. That they were immoral. I congratulated him for his honesty!! But now, the MEDIA.....yes, those wonderful souls that can't even read their own copy.......has left out, conveniently, the reference to adultery so that they can sensationalize the piece.
The latest article talks about Sam Brownback, Senator from Kansas, getting in line with the General about the remarks. He agrees with him. Unfortunately, in the translation of that first article, in the second article the part about adultery is missing. They focus on the "gays shouldn't serve openly" part. Yes, he said that. However, read the first article. It is out of context. Nevertheless, the Senator is in General Pace's corner on this. He believes that all the criticism is wrong and unfortunate. The critics believe that a guy like the General has no right to state his views. I say that he does. Is this still America or not?
Of course, our front running Dems are all scrambling to stay away from the remarks made by General Pace. Now isn't that interesting. They seem to want to be removed from the limelight on this subject. At first I laughed about that but then it occurred to me that they are only interested in being critical when it is easy to be a critic. When the oven gets hot, they want no part of it. BAH!!! If that isn't reason enough to seek a candidate elsewhere, I don't know what is.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Sam Brownback is backing the Pentagon's top general over his remarks that homosexual acts are immoral. The Kansas senator planned to send a letter on Thursday to President Bush supporting Marine Gen. Peter Pace, who earlier this week likened homosexuality to adultery and said the military should not condone it by allowing gay personnel to serve openly.
The chairman of the Joint Chiefs also said in an interview with the Chicago Tribune: "I believe that homosexual acts between individuals are immoral and that we should not condone immoral acts. I do not believe the United States is well-served by a policy that says it is OK to be immoral in any way."
