I have gotten two emails over the last twelve hours at my @military-history.us address from the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network(The Gays in the Military Advocacy Group), I don’t for the life of me know why. I have never supported the repeal of DADT and was sure happy that I retired from the military less than a month after its official repeal. I am guessing that since I have a military themed site and have not really commented on DADT they thought I might support them. They could not be more wrong.
I have strong moral reservations to homosexuality in general and personal objections to homosexuals serving openly. I generally take a live and let live approach in my personal life, I do not go out of my way to preach to gays that they are wrong. If asked however, I will explain that I find their lifestyle repulsive and simply cannot understand their choice. This has led to some lively conversations/arguments. I don’t approve of homosexuality, I am willing to tolerate it however. My biggest problem with SLDN and other supposed Gay Rights groups is that they don’t want toleration, they want acceptance and affirmation. That they will never get from me and millions of others that think the way I do. That push for acceptance is at the heart of their assault on marriage. It is not about civil rights or legal protections, it is about making marriage as an institution meaningless.
I have replied to SLDN asking them not to pollute my inbox with their emails, I am curious what will happen next. Hopefully, they will cheerfully remove me from their mailing list. If they do not, then the fun begins. I do not want to be associated with them in any way, even passively.
