Thank You, Sam Brownback

Presidential candidate Sam Brownback recently spoke out in support of General Peter Pace, whose comments about homosexuality sparked a recent firestorm. Pace had stated that the "don't ask, don't tell" policy in the military should remain in tact, recognizing that having practicing homosexuals working in the military would likely undermine the effectiveness of the nation's armed forces.

Of course, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were quick to chastise Pace, arguing that homosexuality is in no way immoral, and that gays should be free to publicly practice their sexuality in the military. I'd like to think that these two presidential candidates could put down the radical liberal Kool Aid for a minute, and recognize the fact that including gay soldiers who sodomize each other in combat units is a really bad idea. Seriously, setting personal "choice" and civil liberties aside, are Obama and Clinton so clueless that they think GI Joe is going to just ignore his "brothers in arms"? Do the armed forces really need these distractions?

Fortunately, Sam Brownback has the courage to say "No". Senator Brownback apparently has the common sense and moral fortitude to state the facts simply: practicing homosexuality is considered immoral by the majority of the nation.

The sad truth is that at the end of the day, liberal America will brand Brownback a "neocon", an "extremist", a "right wing intolerant Christian", etc. And Obama and Clinton will be praised for once again fighting the "good" fight to ensure homosexual activity is viewed as being no different from heterosexual activity.
