Thank you for your honorable service. You medivac pilots in Nam were incredibly brave.

I'm sure the wounded gay soldiers you rescued from harm's way forgive you for your hateful rhetoric.

PS Congrats on getting a regular column at WorldNutDaily. You must be incredibly proud to share space with such other American Heroes such as yourself.

      Thank you for your service. Now get over your homophobia and join the 21st century.

Dear Major General Brady;

Thank you for your noble and honorable service.  I'm heartened that today should I go into battle the medivac pilots and crewmen would willingly risk their lives to save mine, even though I am a homosexual.  Conversely I have in the past risked my life and shed blood in defense of a fellow soldier, even if our personal views off the battlefield did not align.  No matter how petty or one-sided our arguments might have been, we were ready to die for one another.

I suppose that makes us better men, and we can go to our graves knowing that our service to the nation and to each other transcends the labels that politicians and the media hang around our necks.  There were no queers, no fundamentalists, no distinction between Christian, Muslim, and Jew.  No white, black, hispanic, or Asian.  There were only soldiers who stood as a band of brothers.

I could only wish the same comfort for you.

Regards,
A queer transsexual veteran who would still die for you and for the nation if called upon.

randomjsa: A few months back when a former service member who was terminally ill wrote an article basically repeating every liberal talking point ever created about Bush and the Iraq war... He was held up as an absolutely unquestionable authority whom nobody had any right to disagree with.

So which is it? Are war veterans not to be questioned or can everything they say be subject to question just the same as everyone else?


Perhaps the former service member who was terminally ill wrote an accurate article based on established facts.

This general is spouting off bigotry and hatred, masked by the American flag and the Bible.

It's not whether someone is conservative, moderate or liberal, it's a logical discussion of facts.  Did we find WMDs in Iraq after we invaded? No. Did the Bush Administration drop the ball on the invasion and the occupation of Iraq? Yes. Was the Iraq War completely unnecessary? IMHO, yes.

And, in the first place, I didn't like the idea of starting a second war while already engaged in a country that actually attacked us in our homeland.

My grandfather and a few uncles served in Vietnam, a few of them in the shiat.  Considering the horror stories they used to tell about the weirdos, crazies, junkies, idiots, and outright psychotic troops the draft boards were digging up, gay guys would have been the least of their worries.

I fought in Iraq with a couple of gay dudes.  I would rather have them backing me up in a fight than the ex-tweakers, or the guys so distracted by babby-momma drama back home that they were completely combat ineffective.

We had to send one dude home after his wife left their kid at some random stranger's house (which was probably some guy she bought meth from), and another who left it with the babysitter "for three hours," which turned into four days while she was out getting gang-farked by the retards on Rear Detachment.

LectertheChef: When I look at bible verses, I just laugh at anybody who takes any of it seriously. If one is looking for spiritual philosophy stuff, better to go with Buddhism. If someone's looking for historical knowledge, the bible is one of the most unreliable things ever written. Seriously. It says angels came down from heaven and farked a bunch of women, creating a race of supermen. And that's not even the dumbest thing in the bible.


Yup. Which is why I studied it from the literature side of things (I've got an English degree). As literature, the Bible is farking gold. Try to do anything else with it, and you'll fall in a hole that you didn't see because your head was stuck too far up your butt.

jmr61: It might help but I refuse to subject myself to the crap that's in there based on all that I've seen and heard.


I don't blame you in the slightest. It's hard to separate the book from the culture around it, but if you can put that away, it's interesting. Some of it was ahead of its time (eye for an eye was actually an improvement), and some of the agricultural laws are just plain smart gardening (not letting a tree fruit for so many years, for example, which helps to increase yield as the branches are strong enough to support the weight).

"I do not fear Satan so much as I fear the men who fear Satan." The Bible's not the the problem. People are (and always have been, and always will be).

EngineerAU: Sgt Otter: "'Keep my decrees. "'Do not mate different kinds of animals. "'Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed. "'Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material." Leviticus 19:19 -NIV

Much like folk wisdom, a lot of what is commanded by the Bible has its origin in a rational thought appropriate for the time it was written, but I've never understood where the demand that clothes not be made up of more than one type of material came from. Makes me wonder if it got slipped into the Bible by someone who was annoyed by static electricity?


When you're dealing with Bible verses, you have to look at the context a lot of times to get the meaning. Notice that the verse comes after two other verses that are about intermixing? Don't breed across animal species, don't breed across plant species, and don't wear clothing of two different "species." A lot of the laws in Old Testament are laws designed to separate Jews from other cultures of the time; this is what WE do, this is what THEY do. THEY breed animals across species, and wear clothing of two types, and are homosexuals (the strength of the term "abomination" against homosexuality is along the same lines of kosher laws and the laws against mixed threads--in other words, if you're Jewish and eat pork, you shouldn't have a problem with gays). WE are the Chosen of God, and therefore we don't do this.

Many of these laws were also economically related. For example, the kosher prohibition against pork? Swine require an intense amount of water to keep, and Moses crossed a desert. Not exactly prime location to keep pigs. Similar with shellfish, which require either eating fresh (and therefore living near water) or refrigeration (probably would have been magic back then). If I had to make an educated guess, the prohibition against mixing threads is a homespun-type protest, since if I recall correctly Egypt pretty much controlled the economy at the time. To have intermixed threads meant you would have had to purchase something from Egypt, which would have been akin to a black person buying his rims from a KKK Grand Dragon (or whatever the heck they're called).

/studied the Bible extensively at university. It helps when you're an atheist to know more about the Bible than most Christians.

Basically this is summed up as "When they say something I agree with, they must be right, and when they say something I disagree with, they must be wrong"

You dodged the point beautifully by the way. The question was 'Does a persons status as a war veteran make their opinion more valid?', and the answer in your case is 'When they say something I agree with then absolutely', while mine is 'No, it does not'. We saw this same sort of nonsense with Cindy Sheehan. If you did anything other than nod your head in dumb agreement withe very word she said it was nothing but idiots screaming 'You MONSTER! Her son died! How DARE you question her?'. We saw this same thing with four wives of fallen 9/11 fire fighters. They could say anything about anything and once again if you did anything other than nod in agreement you were some sort of monster.

As I said back when the article from the terminally ill service member first appeared 'If he'd written an opinion piece where he repeated the same talking points conservatives have been using since 2003 would liberals suddenly go 'How could we have been so wrong?''. This article on the horrors of allowing gay service members in to the military is much the same thing. It doesn't matter who wrote it or what sort of awards he received, it's still just a bunch of the same old anti-gay nonsense that was worn out decades ago. Having a distinguished service member pick up a talking point does not make that talking point more valid.
