He’s gagging over photo of kiss

It’s the kiss of death — two female sailors return from sea, meet on the pier, and do a liplock in front of cameras like pink elephants on parade. Around the country, newspapers are printing the photo, trying to lend credence to the act, but in reality it is an embarrassment to our Armed Forces. It is the kiss of death regarding the moral decline of this once great nation.

No, I don’t have to be tolerant of lesbian actions being flaunted in public, in uniform. I will be just as vocal against it as those who are for it are. You can’t legislate morality and this is certainly proof of that.

There are those that say, “Leave it alone, it ain’t bothering you and you are a homophobe and prejudiced. Get real, you are living in the past.” I say to them, I am entitled to my opinion just as much as you are entitled to yours. I can live with the way I feel, I like it and in fact I am very happy with my view point. I believe those that disagree are the ones with the problem.

I have no issues with gays and lesbians choosing that lifestyle but when their sexual attraction is publicly displayed as normal, well, please keep it in the bedroom. The vocal minority are not going to change the minds of the silent majority (not all of us are silent), but you will make us gag.
