    Just FYI, this thread is a hoax. The pentagon just did a huge survey and found that the majority wanted gay people to serve openly in the military. Duh. How could anybody really believe that 95% of our soldiers were bigots? That's ridiculous.

    Well, if you don't understand the difference between an anonymous survey done with a huge number of people from all branches of the military and one officer doing an anecdotal "show of hands" measurement in front of a large group of people with probably the strongest peer-pressure effect on the planet... you might get confused.

    Marines Chief Warns Most Are Uncomfortable Serving With Openly Gay Troops - FoxNews.com
    I don't believe it. I have a good buddy who served at A-Shaw in Viet Nam, as a point man and demolition expert, a Marine. We were together last night. I asked him about that. He's a rough-tough-no-holds-barred guy who's been to hell and back. Marine through and through. He said, "No problem at all. None. Don't care if they're gay. But if one of them ever made a pass at me, I'd beat the livin' cr*p outa' him." I'd bet that pretty much sums up most guys' feelings. Not that I really know....but I'd make a bet.

    Their mantra? "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for I am the baddest, meanest mo-fo on the planet earth." "And," he said, "we were." Quite an interesting discussion we had.

    So you're agreeing that this thread is a hoax, right?

    Nobody's forcing anybody to be friends, where the hell did you get that idea? What they WILL be forced to do is BE PROFESSIONALS and DO THEIR JOBS. If that's too much for them, then they shouldn't be there in the first place.

    Do gays want to discriminate in the manner the KKK does?

    Re: 95% of Marines uncomfortable serving with openly gay troops

    Just so we are all clear, he's posting an article from a "Newspaper" which has a front cover that looks something like this:
    Very well then. Prove the article is false.


    It supports his viewpoint, therefore it's reliable.
    I like liberals and their helpmates, they're so charmingly self-righteously hypocritical.

    They talk about things like duff links yet scarcely put up any of their own to counter them.

    Then they spend half their posts calling me names, yet fail to see why I don't curl up in contrition when they tell me off for 'demonising' the Islamic extremists I go on about.



    There's a difference between "flaunting" and "being forced to hide it for fear of being ****ing discharged."
    Well, as I say, rough, tough gays in the Marines aren't going to walk about smelling like lavender and asking for the Pink News at the quartermaster stores are they. You'd have to flaunt it to show it.

    Though, as hinted above, if most Marines don't have problems with gays in the army, I'm in no position to change that and nor should anyone else be.

    But to impose homosexuality upon them is another can of unpleasant liberal-left worms!

    If the number is accurate, we should disband the Marine Corps.



    Why? do you know someone else willing to do that job?
