I agree that we should practice tolerance in regards to gays in the military. I don't agree that they should be treated with "kid gloves" or that they should be given special rights and privileges.
This should be especially true when it comes to leaders in the military. Gay commanders should NOT be allowed to limit or silence any opinion or speech that questions gay life styles. If they don't like that "straight" Christians question gay life, then use tolerance not censure when dealing with such an opinion.
I personally don't think gays, especially radical gays, in the military add anything to our national defense. What they can do is to make heterosexual uniformed members feel uncomfortable for fear of retribution. Here's a perfect example of bad judgment by an irresponsible USAF commander!
The revenge of a gay USAF commander.
