What a wonderful person. Fortunately there was no Dont Ask Dont Tell or the military would have been with one less hero.

"For what? For freedom and equality. These are the values that give America a great nation, one worth dying for. "

About sums it up doesn't it.

This man is a life-long Republican. Republicans are not the enemy. The next time you have an urge to lash out at Republicans in general, remember to keep and open mind and an open heart.

People wouldn't look at the majority of Republicans as "the enemy" if they weren't the majority denying equality to Gay Americans!
Why is it that in the House in voting the reauthorization of the Ryan White AIDS Care Act, the vote was 408 (YAY) to 9 (NAY) and those 9 were all Republicans? Why? How can you say Republicans are not the enemy. All 9 who voted against the bill were Republicans, 4 of which were from Texas including Ron Paul!

So I ask you, seriously, how can you say "The Republicans are not our enemy"?

I posted a comment last night, but feel compelled to post again after reading all the amazing stories and posts from others. Thank you Mr. Spooner, and to all the posters on this thread, you have given me faith once again that humanity and equality can and will prevail. We hear too much bigotry and hatred these days with our 24 news cycles, so much sometimes that it seems there is no hope. Mr. Spooner and all of you have given back the hope that we can and will prevail over inequality for our LGBT brothers and sisters. I implore all of you to post and repost this video anywhere and everywhere you can. Thank you again Mr. Spooner, your bravery and courage will never be forgotten.

All I wanted was to help serve, and protect my country. I joined the Navy in 1975 I was not drafted, I volunteered my service, my time, and my life for this country. I served until 1987, 8 ships, 4 med cruises, and numerous other cruises to just bore holes in the water.All this with stops in such wonderful hot spots as Beirut, Lebanon, Libya, Nicaragua, and El Salvador. I have seen and done a lot in that time. I wish To thank you from my heart for your service, and for the heartfelt testimony for marriage equality. You have also restored to me something I have thought had disappeared long ago, and that is courage of conviction. Thank you for reminding me of the great, and greater sacrifices we all have made for all of our freedoms. Bless you and your family, and I hope for you to be able to see the joy on your gay sons face upon his marriage, if he so chooses.

It's clear he is and always has been a very brave man, and seems more than up to the bile and hate that is surely to be flung his way. Lord love him.

Many opponents to gay marriage can care less about the feelings of those who are homosexual. To them, they just believe it is wrong or immoral, and that the government should not sanction something that is wrong, no matter the case...
