Gay AMERICANS in the military

Allow Gays in the Military

Great Britain allows it. Australia allows it. Israel allows it. The Netherllands, Italy, New Zealand, Romania, and Switzerland also allow it. However, Americans cannot tolerate it. We are in league with Cuba, China, Iran, North Korea, and Venezuela. What am I speaking of, Gays in the military.

USA Today is reporting that our Allies stance on Gays in the military is much more open than ours. However, the tide seems to be changing according to U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy who said, "I take it as a personal affront to our warriors to say that other countries' soldiers are professional enough to handle this and Americans aren't is really a slap in the face."

Over 30,000 soldiers have been removed from American military roles because of their sexual orientation. We refuse to allow those willing to serve access to the military because of our closed minds. Isn't it time we came into the modern age and should we not bring our military with us.

Stop the idiocy of "Don't ask, don't tell" and lets allow those who are willing to serve our country to do so with pride.

      I agree wholeheartedly with your viewpoint. It's a travesty that needs to be eliminated permanently. Thanks for the hub!
