Marine General Tells Truth - Queers Throw Hissy Fit
Panties in a wad... film at 11

(3/13/07 - WASHINGTON) - The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Monday he considers homosexuality to be immoral and the military should not condone it by allowing gay personnel to serve openly, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Marine Gen. Peter Pace likened homosexuality to adultery, which he said was also immoral, the newspaper reported on its Web site.

"I do not believe the United States is well served by a policy that says it is OK to be immoral in any way," Pace told the newspaper in a wide-ranging interview.

"I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we should not condone immoral acts," Pace said.

By the way, General Pace is a good Italian-Catholic boy from Brooklyn, N.Y., the son of an immigrant from Italy. And from what I understand, his last name is correctly pronounced "PAH-chay", which is Italian for "peace". Interestingly enough, former Commandant of the Marine Corps, General Paul X. Kelley is the son of an immigrant Irishman bricklayer.

Hmmm.... something about the Marine Corps and Catholicism? Well, The Corps is the most "Catholic" of all the Services... 40%. Must be a connection between all that "sacrifice for something greater than yourself", huh?

I support Peter Pace for President! Our country could use a few more truthful, Catholic boys from Brooklyn--my single daughter lives there--hope she finds one just like him.

Naturally...can any other branch of the service boast a Venerable (who needs to be raised to the altar sooner rather than later)?

Again trust a Marine to know the truth and have the courage to say it.

Hmmm....funny, I came close to enlisting in the Marines. (I am a woman, by the way).

And all the Marines I know are Catholic...most of the other vets and current military I know are from the other services.

Great observation!

If I ever get married and have sons, if they don't become priests and hanker for the military, I'll steer them towards the Marines!

Semper Fi!

Pace for President, that is an idea! Speaking of Preisdents, I am sure under the Obama, Hillary, or Rudy administrations, this great Marine would be shown the door.

It seems he yielded to the gay lobby's pressure:

FWIW, JEdgar Hoover populated the FBI with Catholics, even though he was not Catholic himself.

Hello, everybody, I'm new to this forum which seems to want to call me "joseph" even tho I'm not even a guy.

When I first read about this good man I said, "Yippee!" and then I thought, uh oh, he's in trouble as is anyone these days who should dare to offend those poor dear homosexuals. I'm personally sick of it.

Theo, consider this ---

Way before General Pace ever uttered the words "homosexuality is immoral", he knew darn good and well that he'd have to apologize.

Why? Because of so damn many queers in congress.

But consider this... the main job of the Chairman of the Joints Chiefs is to go before congress and grovel for scraps just so the Armed Forces can keep humming along. Not a good idea to piss off the same guys who you're asking money from.

But even more important --- even though he had to tap dance after the fact, Gen Pace still got his point across.

It's unfortunant, but that's how politics is played in Washington.

The bottom line is that Gen Pace did get his point across, even if it did piss off the homos.

Vir,

I do believe that you are correct. Unfortunately that is the only way to do business in our great country today.
