    This man is criminally stupid and inept.

    Also, why would gay men be limp wristed? If anything, they use their wrists a LOT ;D

    I find it funny that there`s such a debate against gays in the military. I can bet you anything most US armies before the 1950`s had plenty of gay men serving. And that`s probably still the case today. Many probably accomplished just as much as their heterosexual counterparts. Who is this untermensch to say otherwise?

    George Washington owned slaves. So, just because GW did something, does that mean you should, too?

    The idiot doesn`t realize that some of the men who did the things he says limp wristed gay men can`t do, were, in fact, limp wristed gay men themselves. To think that no heroic military acts were ever performed by a gay man or woman is just stupid.

    @yarrrpirate, totally agree. There are studies saying that among Catholic priests up to 50% are homosexual because no one would suspect you`re gay considering that you can`t marry so no one questions a lack of women in your life and it`s easier to deny your sexuality to yourself. If that`s true I wouldn`t be surprised if a lot of men still in the closet also joined the military to try to deny the fact.

    Just a thought.

    Seems like he`s saying women shouldn`t be in the military either then. "We need solid, strong MEN to fight" And then he continues "not pacifists" wtf? what does wanting peace over war have to do with being a good soldier? Should all soldiers be blood thirsty brutes? Cause it`d be a small army then.

    @bucksteeth, Honestly, funniest damn troll I`ve ever heard. Very well placed. You deserve a medal.

    I have no problem with it if someone`s sexual orientation is leaning towards their own sex, but why even talk about it? That goes for everyone. No one gives a flying f*ck who you like to have sex with, seriously! Imo, someone`s sexual preference is probably the absolute last thing you should learn about him/her. Too even make discussion about it shows that you really think that someone is purely defined by how they like to have sex, or who they like to have sex with, in other words, very f*cking shallow. This goes not only for people who are against gays, but also for flamboyant gays who want everyone to know they`re gay.

    79% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
    By asking one Catholic priest if he`s gay and finding out on the news that one is doesn`t mean that 50% are automatically gay. But thank you for sounding ignorant.

    What annoys me most about people like Mr.Mayor, is that the "homosexuals" they hate so much are fighting and sacraficing their lives so people like him have the freedom to say hateful stupid shyte like this. And I agree with pizzaroll down there in that way too much importance is placed on sexuality as a way of defining a person, and it shouldn`t be.

    I swear these people are dispicable. They say the most disgusting things and no one challenges them. Gay or straight, any person in active duty, fighting overseas in a BS war should be commended, instead of chastised for their sexual preference. It has nothing to do with their ability to do their job, be it live combat or aid and assisst.

    *cough* Many Spartans were gay *cough* so was Alexander the Great *cough*

    Maybe you should get that cough checked out.

    There wasn`t really any such thing as `gay` in Sparta, ancient Macedonia or, as far as I know, anywhere else at that time. The idea of a *person* being homosexual is quite recent.

    Many Spartans, Macedonians (and Athenians, Romans a bit later, etc, etc) had homosexual sex, but that`s not the same thing. It was a degree of bisexuality and it wasn`t as free and easy as it`s often made out to be today. For example, Julius Caesar was criticised and ridiculed for his alleged relationship with the king of Bithynia because he was alleged to have been too passive and that was seen as being unmanly. Whose genitals went where was considered important - it was not seen as equal. That`s why younger Spartan youths had it up the bum from older Spartan youths and not vice versa - there was an element of relative status involved.

    @DavidXJ,
    It`s definately not ALL or ONLY christians that are gay bashers, I am christian myself but have no problems against gay people, I know atheists who are extremely hateful against gays as well. I think it is more based on that persons maturity than anything else. They do not realize gay people don`t harm them by liking others of the same gender.

    AZ has lost crediblity as a state...

    this guy thinks he`s goerge washinton huh...he is comparing what he said to what people over 200 years ago would have said? yeah that makes sense pal...what a douche nozzle

    Actually, mexican activists have explicitly called for the killing of white Americans. Have yet to hear an American politician call for killing either mexicans or homosexuals.

    Also, it`s too bad that the world is literally collapsing all around us, American kids are being killed in Afghanistan, rumors of more wars grow stronger, and yet the only thing that gets some people riled up is that not everyone is as excited about their sexual behavior as they are.

    In this case, it`s like you`re looking at a fork and seeing a spade.

    There are similarities, but they`re not the same things.

    I think it comes of trying to fit everyone into one of two utterly seperate groups: either absolutely totally heterosexual in every way forever or homosexual. We`re all trained to think that way, but reality is much less simple.
