    Yeah that's the truly bizarre part, under DADT they already are. DADT wouldn't change anything at all, it'd just let gays be open.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    EDIT:

    Let me correct myself:

    George W. Bush . . . . . 5187 (2001-2004)
    Bill Clinton . . . . . . . . . 4302 (1993-1996)
    George H.W. Bush . . . . 6223 (1989-1992)
    Ronald Reagan . . . . . . 9163 (1981-1984)




    Anyway the point is, that during the "peacetime" that was the Clinton Administration, we had a lot of accidents, training mishaps, etc, that came from the gutting of the military and from down time mishaps.


    Also note this is total casualties. War casualties are currently 4,222 which is less than Bill Clintons total. Irrellevant I know, but interesting.

    If you're in the military, you are trained to kill and face the possibility of being killed yourself. And you're worried about some guy staring at your junk in the shower?

    Sorry, that isn't a good enough reason to keep gays out of the military.

    I can't. This is important.

    What is the source of that statistic? I'd like to see the methodology they used to determine what constitutes a "casualty." Those numbers all seem awfully high.

    I'm sorry, maybe your argument was that they would daydream about having gay sex with the openly gay guy while on patrol.

    Dude, you bragged about knowing more gay people than I who have served honorably. But you are arguing that you shouldn't know. Somehow you knew, and I doubt that you were the only one, and you haven't shared an eyewitness account of these things you worry about.

    Come now, You should know by now this won't get past the Good REverend!
    How did you know they were gay?

    Nope....

    Bragged? nah, I simply stated I knew a few that were denoting that what you speak of is not how it is.....







    How did you know they were gay?



    Not quite sure, but it was no secret, even to the few I knew. It wasn't that big of a deal.

    So let me get this straight:

    There were gay people whom you served with in the military. You knew that they were gay. They didn't keep it a secret. And it wasn't that big of a deal.

    So what exactly is your problem with ending DADT again?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    I don't have a problem with it, I have a problem with the timing.

    But you said that you already knew of gays in the military, it wasn't a secret, and it wasn't a big deal. Surely your situation was not unusual.

    So nothing would change other than the official policy.
