I do believe the Republican Party can be a safe place for the gay community
Ya think? Did you not realize that there ARE gay members of the Republican party? The problem is not that Republicans are against gays. The problem is that the Democrats do a much better job of convincing gays that they are victims. Actually, that is pretty much the liberal agenda. Categorize you into a multitude of groups, let you know what atrocity is being propagated against you, and watch each group fight for itself. As long as you are not united, they are happy.
President Obama said that he was going to repeal ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ and I think me and a lot of other people are still waiting on that
You have never served in the military, so shut up. This has been tried and it was a BAD idea. The volume of quality people you will lose are not worth it. I served on co-ed ships. The problems there were rampant. Numerous SAILORS were lost due to pregnancy and disciplinary reasons. Now you want to explode it that much more?
I don’t care who you are, but as a heterosexual man, I promise you that there will be some SERIOUS morale issues. I am in no way homophobic. One of my best friends is gay. But that does not mean I want him to see me walking around naked in the shower and/or berthing. Unless, of course, you plan to have segregated ships/battalions.
to promote abstinence among teenagers, calling it “not realistic for this generation.
Above all, this comment got me fuming. Where does the bar stop? When we give up on promoting abstinence, what then? Protection? Do you have a daughter? A son? Until you do, shut the hell up. While I am not naive, the fact remains that all of the protection in the world will not help. 99% successful, remember? That leaves 1% to chance. Something I try to teach my kids a LONG time before they are ready. And when you are hot and heavy into it with your partner, and you realize there is no protection, what then?
Abstinence IS realistic. Kids everywhere are engaging it. Better would be for lazy parents to get involved and actually teach kids right from wrong (and enforce it). The fact that you are a slut should not mean we have to bring our children to your compromised position.
Please. Just join the Democrats and be done with it. It is the dilution of principles like you, Arlen Specter, Olympia Snowe and, yes, your father that has brought the United States to its knees and on the verge of disappearing into history.
Shut the hell up and go away.
The revolution is at hand. Will you be a leader or a follower?
