Is It An Apology the Country Wants?

Gay advocates demand apology from Pace - Yahoo! News: "A gay advocacy group Tuesday demanded an apology from the Pentagon's top general for calling homosexuality immoral.
In a newspaper interview Monday, Marine Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, had likened homosexuality to adultery and said the military should not condone it by allowing gays to serve openly in the armed forces.
'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."

Look, I know there are a lot of people out there that still think that anything but missionary for the purposes of procreation is "unfavorable in the eyes of the Lord". Pace seems to be of the churchmen that show their religious and masculine worth or whatever with these kinds of statements and beliefs. Here's the problem. Having General Pace apologize for the statement does not change the belief. I know it is a first step and apologies are generally requested so that the offender feels humiliated. In this case, I fear that there are just a whole lot of people that will support him so that he doesn't feel so humiliated for his belief. I realize there have been great advancements for gays and all of the associated groups, but I still fear for the folks that don't fall into those categories, without a voice that will and are also so easily tossed aside. You know, the women who choose not to use their perfectly good uterus. Or the people that find sex unfulfilling, so they just stop having it. Most people want to encourage the people around them to be like them. Single people want their friends to stay single. Married people want their friends to get married and rarely hang out with single folk. Ok, I'm off track.
What we all know to be true is the boomerang of such stupid statements. People will start digging around on the General, and no doubt, he will have had several affairs or have some fetish that is administered by a very vocal woman-of-the-night. His glass house is bound to crash soon.

An AOL News poll showed nearly 271,000 votes as of 1:45pm EDT. The margin is two to one in favor of SUPPORT for General Pace's comments regarding gays in the military.

How do you feel about Pace's comments?
Agree 65% (~176,000)
Disagree 33%
Not sure 3%

I applaud General Peter Pace for taking the correct stand on this matter. His comments are right on target. There is NO REASON for him to apologize to anyone. His personal beliefs are his own and NO ONE need apologize for their personal beliefs. While I agree that he should be loving and respectful in his statements and (more importantly) actions, being forced to accept and celebrate the choice of homosexual behavior is NOT something anyone should be confronted with -- military or civilian.
These gay advocacy groups need to sit down and shut up! There is NOTHING "outrageous" or "insensitive" in what General Pace said in the interview. I listened to part of his comments. He was soft-spoken and respectful, but also firm in his resolve. Pace answered one question with a very straightforward and truthful answer, "The US Military’s mission fundamentally rests on the trust, confidence, cooperation amongst its members, and the homosexual lifestyle does not comport with that kind of trust and confidence and therefore is not supported within the US military. I’ll leave it at that."
Homosexuality *is* an immoral act. It is NOT natural, normal or moral. The lifestyle choice is rife with promiscuity, predatorship and infidelity -- all matters that point to trust, confidence and cooperation. General Pace should be applauded for standing his ground and speaking the truth.
I, personally, plan to be active in the fight against these homosexual advocacy groups as they seek to villainize General Pace. Here's hoping you will join the fight as well. It's high time conservatives (especially Christians) stand up for our beliefs and convictions.
