I'll Tell You What's "Immoral," Peter Pace

Posted: Updated:

So Joint Chief of Staff chairman Peter Pace thinks gay behavior is (wooooo) immoral.

Thus Sprach Peter:

"I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we [the military] should not condone immoral acts... I do not believe the United States is well served by a policy that says it is OK to be immoral in any way."

Well, I'm not gay, nor am I in the military, but Peter Pace, you are full of shit.

I will tell you what's immoral. This war, the more than 3,000 U.S. dead, scores more Iraqi dead- as a result or consequence of an invasion conducted by a military that you now head.

A military whose Commander in Chief who brought us to war under false pretenses.

Now let me tell you something else, Peter Pace.

That family down the street is mourning their son. See, he believed this President when he saw the towers fell, and not long after, talked about Saddam and Al-Queda, WMD, yellowcake in Niger, etc.

The son who believed the President you now serve is decomposing in a graveyard.

Now that's immoral.

But in that home down the street from you, two men who have been together for as many years as the son who died in your military has been alive- will share a bed, their dreams, their bodies, their love.

You may think that's immoral, Peter Pace.

I do not. And far more importantly, they don't.

In such instances, that's all that should matter.
