77. Things you say freely, which Hagel does not say at all, even under current pressures:

"I'm a liberal agnostic that believes in equal rights for people of all sexual orientations. I'm pro-gay marriage, pro-open service, pro-antidiscrimination, pro-gay adoption rights, etc. I have many gay friends and relatives that I would take a bullet for if it came down to it. I don't believe in such a thing as hell. And I certainly don't believe there is anything immoral about being gay."

Because when it comes up, this is what you offer, you seem changed from that which you say you were. Compare your words to Hagel's 'apology':

"My comments 14 years ago in 1998 were insensitive. They do not reflect my views or the totality of my public record, and I apologize to Ambassador Hormel and any LGBT Americans who may question my commitment to their civil rights. I am fully supportive of ‘open service’ and committed to LGBT military families."

Nothing like what you wrote. And that sort of proves the point about Chuck.
