Regarding the Patriot Post article on President Obama and gay pride in the military, Ron Tate writes:
As we discuss this issue about gays in the military, I couldn’t help but notice this article posted by a former high school classmate’s Facebook page regarding celebrating gays in the military. It is a long read but gives insight into how still so many view gays in the military.
They will not let this issue die a dignified death. My classmate served as an officer in the U.S. Air Force and grew up in Arkansas.
Need I say more?
Obviously there is only one answer needed for this man and the others—they said the same in 1948 when President Truman integrated the military. And I notice the use of a “medical term” about homosexuality. It is not valid, it wasn’t when it was used, and is not now.
But I did not know Obama told the military they had to “celebrate” Pride month. I don’t celebrate it—so am opposed to that, or any other special group or cause.
