GENERAL BOYKIN: Repealing ďDonít Ask, Donít TellĒ made Petraeus cheat on wife

Repealing ďDonít Ask, Donít TellĒ made Petraeus cheat on wife

..............

Man, we are a powerful lot, we gays.

First we control the weather, having caused Hurricane Sandy, Hurricane Isaac, and Hurricane Katrina. And letís face it, who do you know who can control the weather?

And now, we control straight guysí libidos. (I wish.)

Hereís a retired general who works for the officially-designated ďhate group,Ē the Family Research Council (FRC):

GENERAL BOYKIN: What youíre seeing is, youíre seeing a declining morality in our military. I would tell you, Tony, that I believe that that is very deliberate. I think the military has been targeted by the left. I think itís been targeted, ah, largely by the gay and lesbian lobby, ah, but also by other elements of the left to bring the military down because the military has been a bastion of morality and ethics. Itís been the anchor of our society for a very long time and you canít change our society completely until you lower the, ah, standards of the military and bring them down. That is what weíre seeing here.

TONY PERKINS: So General, let me be clear. The, what we see here, this rash of general officers that have been brought down through scandal, sex scandal, you believe this is a reflection of a declining moral standard within the military as a whole.

GENERAL BOYKIN: I do think that is the case, Tony. I think that this is, ah, concrete evidence.





All that gay nesting just makes those religious right types want to get up and leave their wives for an Indian, a policeman, a cowboy, a construction worker, a leatherman, or a biographer.

1. Yeah, but wouldn't the generals be doing gay stuff if gays were causing this?

Or are the generals just trying to prove their heteroness in the overwhelming face of unleashed gaydom?

3. Declining moral standards

Women not having access to preventive exams isn't a moral issue.

Children not getting a good education isn't a moral issue.

Having the world's largest military, responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent victims, isn't a moral issue.

Election fraud isn't a moral issue.

Forcing women to have a child conceived by a violent crime isn't a moral issue.

Allowing people to suffer a painful death because they can't get insurance for a pre-existing condition isn't a moral value.

But allowing people to be who they are, because they were born that way...that's declining morality.

What are these people on?

7. "The military has been an anchor of our society for a long time."

I hate to think where a declining morality is going to take us.
