A writer from Blairsville wrote a cutesy little lighthearted missive about the homosexuals in the military issue. Am I to guess the writer doesn't understand the levity of the situation?

This whole issue is not about training, discipline and conduct in the armed forces, nor is it about national security. The homosexual agenda is all about getting a stamp of approval on an abominable lifestyle. He uses left-handed people as his bouncing board.

It doesn't work. As far as I know, left-handed people, people of color and people of various nationalities are born with those features. Homosexuals are not born homosexual, but have chosen their aberrant conduct against all laws of God and nature.

Qualifications for military service should not be left to politicians, judges (most of whom are politicians or petty tyrants) or people who have drunk poisoned Kool-Aid. The military knows better than anyone else how to run the military. Leave us alone.
