Wonders if the bogus "christian" Neo-cons with all their patriotic prattle will still "Support Their Troops"?

Pentagon to mark gay pride month

http://news.yahoo.com/pentagon-mark-gay-pride-month-081049426.html

WASHINGTON (AP) — Last summer, gays in the military dared not acknowledge their sexual orientation. This summer, the Pentagon will salute them, marking June as gay pride month just as it has marked other celebrations honoring racial or ethnic groups.

In the latest remarkable sign of change since the military repealed the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, the Defense Department will soon hold its first event to recognize gay and lesbian troops. It comes nine months after repeal of the policy that had prohibited gay troops from serving openly and forced more than 13,500 service members out of the armed forces.

Details are still being worked out, but officials say Defense Secretary Leon Panetta wants to honor the contributions of gay service members...

REPULSIVE -

The US Military USED to be fairly
good : decent, conservative
guys, anti-Communist, especially.
That was a couple decades ago,
however.

Look at this abomination today
that the Pentagon would even admit
one of them to the military,
let alone endorse huge numbers of them.

Then give them candy to reward them
by allowing such a Devil-celebration.
