Marine General Peter Pace – decorated war hero and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – continues to find himself fending off a vicious and unfamiliar rapid fire assault from his extreme left-flank. In recent days, the good general has been widely and unjustly vilified by America’s self-appointed thought police as they step up their unified and widespread campaign of homofascist speech enforcement.
During a recent interview with the Chicago Tribune, Pace violated one of the cardinal rules of political correctness by noting that, “homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral.”
While defending the military’s “don’t ask don’t tell” policy, which allows homosexuals to serve in the armed forces as long as they keep their – umm – “unorthodox” sexual preferences and behaviors private, Pace compared homosexual acts to other acts of sexual immorality such as adultery, and explained that under the current policy – which Bill Clinton signed into law in 1994 – acceptance of open homosexual behavior in the military would amount to government sanctioning of immorality.
Not surprisingly, many of those non-judgmental, freedom-loving moral-relativists on the left are up-in-arms, demanding that Pace apologize and offer a full retraction or be fired (which would of course be disingenuous, entirely meaningless and have no effect on the veracity of his comments).
Those lobbing the bombs comprise that motley crew of usual suspects including today’s Stepford-wife hippy burnouts in the mainstream media and their like-minded “progressive” politicos in government.
Liberal Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have come-out (no pun intended) against General Pace, and despite the fact that both profess to be Christians, have unilaterally declared – without explanation – that homosexual behavior “is not immoral.” They’ve somehow determined that God almighty, the Bible, every major world religion, the unambiguous science of human biology and good-ole common sense have simply had it wrong for – oh – these past several thousand years or so.
And just like that, the self-proclaimed arbiters of sexual morality have lowered the gavel, overturning the very Biblical authority to which they claim to subscribe, and ruling that homosexual acts, such as male-on-male anal penetration which exposes “gay” men to extremely high risk of deadly and infectious disease, are now and have always been… moral.
