Not Moral Enough to Kill or Die for Their Country

Not Moral Enough to Kill or Die for Their Country

The Army, Navy and Air Force unwittingly advertised for recruits on a website for gays, who are barred from military service if they are open about their sexual orientation. When informed Tuesday by USA TODAY that they were advertising on GLEE.com, a networking website for gay professionals, recruiters expressed surprise and said they would remove the job listings. “This is the first I’ve heard about it,” said Maj. Michael Baptista, advertising branch chief for the Army National Guard, which will spend $6.5 million on Internet recruiting this year. “We didn’t knowingly advertise on that particular website,” which he said does not “meet the moral standards” of the military.

Here we go again. The ‘morality’ of gays is getting slammed again by the military. Why doesn’t the military just admit they’re a branch office for evangelical Christianity? After all, those are just about the only people left in America who still spout that kind of bullshit. Enough already. If a gay person wants to volunteer to defend his or her country, in the middle of a war no less, please somebody tell me why that’s a problem? Especially since it’s common knowledge many gay soldiers serve–and have served–for years in secret?

Oh–and thanks, USA TODAY, for stirring the pot.
