Photo of gay kiss over the top

Published: March 7, 2012

The photo you posted in the March 4 Mideast and Pacific editions with the article “Gay Marine’s homecoming kiss gets worldwide notice” is both disgusting and outrageous. It’s bad enough to publish articles that cover the debauchery of homosexuality, but to show that photo crosses the line.

The vast majority of military members I know do not support homosexuality in the military in any way, let alone homosexuality on its own. Yet the voices of opposition to homosexuality continue to not be heard by biased media outlets. “Don’t ask, don’t tell,” although not perfect, was a good compromise for the military. The military is not a 9-to-5 job; it requires people to work in combat 24/7 operations, often under extreme conditions.

I can’t always choose who I room with. But as a Christian, it goes against my faith and the clear word of God (for those Christians who disagree, blow the dust off your Bibles and take a read) to practice such an act; it is clearly a sin.

Marriage has always and should always be between a man and a woman, for it was designed by God and clearly stated in his word. Even non-Christians can agree with this. America is in a deep moral slide and this country will pay the due penalty of its errors.
