Daily Queer News, July 26, 2010

Billy GloverJuly 26, 2010.

Once again I have to thank Daily Queer News for information I had not seen elsewhere — since I can’t view every Web site or blog.

First the article in Huffington Post you link to discusses the issue of churches and the Bible issues of slavery and homosexuality. The article is good but in fact misleading, as twice it says they’re not the same when in fact they are exactly the same. The attempt to find ways to say they aren’t is prejudice.

Second, the link from 365.com is important since I had not known the the military had in fact surveyed the men in the military in 1947 concerning integrating the military, plus a strange question about Jews. The results were not surprising, no matter what (then or now) you think of the intelligence of people serving in our Armed Forces. I found the views similar to the rest of society. But the vast majority opposed racial integration and for some reason had a bad view of Jews.

President Truman ignored the results and integrated the military in 1948. We see the results gradually from then to today.

As the terrible treatment by the White House administration of the lady from Georgia shows, we need a leadership that goes by facts and is not diverted by ignorance, from the extreme left or right. And from the churches, and leaders of the NAACP we need leaders with the ability to be competent and ethical in spite of the Fox news idiots. What indeed would Jesus do?
