    Re: Indiana's Pence to sign bill allowing businesses to reject gay customers

    Yet I wasn't drafted in 1972 when I was #32---know why--it was an election year--see where the cynicism come from?
    First year there was no 2S deferment--how convenient for Kissinger/Nixon to get reelected.
    So along came the National Guard of 1972--seven years worth--while I was 1H for seven years and didn't join up.

    Here in Illinois, Quincy was the only National Guard unit to go to Vietnam.
    When you come up I-55 North of Springfield, there's a rest area at mile marker 109 that flies a POW-MIA flag on both sides of the Interstate.
    With names of soldiers who didn't make it back and are unaccounted for.
    Btw, I do belong to our Sons of American Legion--I love the old guys .

    It became a public cause in Utah, as you also know .
    Mormons didn't have exemptions, they had deferments. A deferment allowed Mormons the time they required to do their mission obligation after which they became 1A

    I got drafted in '69 before there was a draft lottery. Now what does that have to do with conscientious objector's?

    CO status goes back to our founding, we're not just talking about your little vacuum mid-20th century world -- but the history of this country.

    You didn't answer my questions:


    When do you think Selective Service actually began?

    Bonus question: What happened to the CO's in WWI who refused to cooperate in any way with the military?

    A conscientious objector who was conscripted didn't sign up for anything - except being born. That conscientious objector *still* must serve the government in some capacity - Their religious belief does not relieve them of mandatory government service.
    I wasn't talking about conscripted members of a military....here in America we have an all voluntary force. However, they are still able to conscientiously object and not get sent to war. So tell me, why is it that you had to make your argument by changing the parameter to a conscripted individual? Was it because that if you kept it to a volunteer force scenerio then my analogy would be spot on, and you'd know that all this bluster over the faux outrage by the LGBT's along with the liberal antagonists would be revealed for the absolute rubbish it is?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
