If you were wondering what is wrong with our country, looking for symptoms of the disease that has taken over a once healthy body; maybe this AP story out of Washington will shed some light. We’re supposed to be a “progressive society” full of tolerance; that is unless being tolerant means listening to those who disagree with certain aspects of that progressive society, shame on us for calling evil for what it is, evil.
“A gay advocacy group Tuesday demanded an apology from the Pentagon's top general for calling homosexuality immoral.”
“"General Pace's comments are outrageous, insensitive and disrespectful to the 65,000 lesbian and gay troops now serving in our armed forces," the advocacy group Servicemembers Legal Defense Network said in a statement on its Web site.”
Thank you General Pace for having the backbone to state what needed to be said. The odds are you will be removed from your position of leadership as a warning to other rank and file members of the military. General Pace’s comments, while coming across as outrageous, insensitive and disrespectful, are completely in line with a reasonable expectation that those who serve our country exhibit the highest level of personal integrity and character; to include sexual conduct.

Now, for the morally lacking in our society, those who have been emboldened through years of political correctness, those who are living under the delusion that a perverted life style such as homosexuality is acceptable, that it is just and honorable, that there is no reason to be ashamed or to expect others to shun such actions; guess again, you’re wrong.
Our country has been fed a steady diet of permissiveness towards anything which can be imagined under the false premise that freedom of expression has no limits, that the moral code as found in the scriptures has no effect now that our Supreme Court has established a separation of church and state. There are many in our society who would have us believe that the only person who can decide what is right and wrong is the individual, that solipsism has replaced social morality; again, wrong!
We really have sunk to the gutter when we as a society go about parading with banners proclaiming our dissatisfaction when someone with real character and integrity stands up and explains these important facts of life. You and your ilk would have him scourged; maybe even stoned for saying what the Prophets have said for thousands of years. You would be better off following those laws as set down in scripture rather than trying to change them to fit your state of perversion.
