Gay advocates demand apology from Pace

Gay advocates demand apology from Pace By PAULINE JELINEK, Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON - "A gay advocacy group Tuesday demanded an apology from the Pentagon's top general for calling homosexuality immoral.

In a newspaper interview Monday, Marine Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, had likened homosexuality to adultery and said the military should not condone it by allowing gays to serve openly in the armed forces."

I don't think that they're going to get an apology. The military is not likely to back off on this. There's no stronger homophobic organization than the military. It doesn't matter that anyone with three braincells knows that homosexuality is as much like adultery as it is like skipping rope.

You know, I almost didn't post this. The feeling of "bottomless pit" is become all encompassing now. I'm forcing myself to do my usual things to try and keep some sense of normalcy.

It's not working.
