    Poll: Most US troops OK with gays in the military

    Pentagon poll: Most U.S. troops are OK with gays in military | battlecreekenquirer.com | The Enquirer

    An internal Pentagon study finds that most U.S. troops and their families don't care whether gays are allowed to serve openly and think the "don't ask, don't tell" policy could be dropped, the Associated Press reports, quoting officials familiar with its findings.

    Now that the results of the Pentagon study are known I'm anxious to hear what the anti-gay folk have to say about ending DADT.

    I'm particularly interested in hearing what Navy Pride has to say, especially since he has repeatedly said that if the men/women of the military were ok with gays, that he would be ok with gays in the military as well.

    Lets hear what you have to say about the results of the Pentagon poll.

    Unlike you DD I have said all along if the men in the U.S. Navy don't have a problem with it then I don't...I am retired so it does not affect me directly....I want to emphasize the U.S. Navy..........I think you will find that they fell like the 90 to 95 percent of the Marines who are dead against it..........


    Oh and since the results of the survey are not due until 17 December I doubt the creditability of the rag caalled the Inquirer.........

    Moving the goalposts again Navy. So when the specifics of the study are released and show the vast majority of the men in the Navy are ok with gays....what song are you going to be singing then? Or will you be a man of your word?

    Re: Poll: Most US troops OK with gays in the military

    And your story about the Marines being against gays serving was pulled from where?

    Of course not. Injustice against one is injustice against all. I don't give a rats ass what the public opinion is. Public opinion was against inter-racial mixing and it was still wrong and had to be correct.

    However, I'm not the one that is hedging my bets and moving the goal posts. It will be interesting to see if you stay true to your word or if you sing a different song when the specifics of the study are released.

    You mean the thread that you started where you pulled the figures from out of your.......and couldn't back up your claim. Is that the one?

    Injustice is injustice. Shame on anyone who believes that some people are entitled to rights/privileges that others are not. There is no shame in fighting against hatred and bigotry.
