The General speaks

General Pace stands by his opinion that homosexuality is immoral.

"Are there wonderful Americans who happen to be homosexual serving in the military? Yes," he told the Senate Appropriations Committee during a hearing focused on the Pentagon's 2008 war spending request.

"We need to be very precise then, about what I said wearing my stars and being very conscious of it," he added. "And that is, very simply, that we should respect those who want to serve the nation but not through the law of the land, condone activity that, in my upbringing, is counter to God's law." -

An indication of idiocy by a State Senator:

Harkin, D-Iowa, said he wanted to give Pace a chance to amend his remarks in light of his retirement.

"It's a matter of leadership, and we have to be careful what we say," Harkin said.

Pace noted that the U.S. Military Code of Justice prohibits homosexual activity as well as adultery. Harkin said, "Well, then, maybe we should change that." -

Maybe Iowa should change Senators.


  1. You have to wonder about the agenda of those who want to use the armed forces of the United States, whose purpose is to defend the country from foreign attack, as a laboratory for social experimentation.

    Discipline and absolute obedience to lawful orders are hallmarks of a military unit. Somehow I get the impression that homosexuals don't seem to like the idea of restrictions on their personal behavior.

  2. You are right Ray - you have to wonder about those who will use the Church for the same purpose. I'm pleased that General Pace has shown such courage to stand by his beliefs.

  3. Ray: You are absolutely right on.
