- Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine General Peter Pace proclaimed on Monday
"I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we 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. As an individual, I would not want [acceptance of gay behavior] to be our policy, just like I would not want it to be our policy that if we were to find out that so-and-so was sleeping with somebody else's wife, that we would just look the other way, which we do not. We prosecute that kind of immoral behavior."
Who is he to decide what is moral and immoral? What gives him the right to proclaim that homosexuality should be a prosecutable offense?
Update: I have edited some of my earlier comments b/c I realized that they were harsh and judgemental. It didn't serve my point as pointed out by a bloggie friend.
