    In the Christian US (far far more so than this country), this attitude is hardly novel and not at all suprising from a Marine.

    Four questions:

  4. "Qoute"Marine Gen Pace, chairman of the US military Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he backed the Pentagon's "don't ask, don't tell" limits on gays serving in the military.

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

    "I do not believe the United States is well served by a policy that says it is okay to be immoral in any way.""unqoute"

    this is rich .. most cant even spell it let alone understand its meaning
  5. Now that made me laugh.

    On the one hand he says he backs "don't ask/don't tell" and on the other he believes homosexuality to be immoral and immorality shouldn't be condoned.

    Is it me? or can he not see that the "don't ask/don't tell" policy must inevitably lead to his condoning those very homosexuals that he believes to be immoral?
  8. Immorality in the Military. Doesn’t the US government also hate porn yet still the country produces two thirds of the filthy filthy (yet lovely) stuff worldwide?
  9. Just to show that hypocrisy isn't just confined to the septics, the reply to me asking to officially live out when at Minden was:

    'It may be a modern army but it's a Christian army'

    Not a problem 'round Pompey and Guz, anyway. Rest of us might hang on for a bit, though!
  15. Is anyone actually bothered if they have bummers in their unit?

    People should learn to live and let live, and to stay out of other people's business.
