Why are you against Gays openly serving in the the Military?

I was watching this news show (on CNN I think it was) early this morning and he was asking people on the street what they thought about Gays in the military. The people who were against it all cited religious reasons for it and when he asked what their religion had to do with the Government and the Military, they all looked dumbfounded and didn't have a response.

So besides religion, what are your reasons you don't agree with this issue? Or is that the only reason you have? If you think gays shouldn't serve in the Military, what other jobs do you think they shouldn't have the right to be in?

  • I am not against it. Just as I am not against gays or lesbians working in any other industry. Service members need to realize that they are government employees, who work for the people, and are expected to work within the same guidelines as every other working American.

  • Why would you ask a random person on the street a question about military affairs? Do we also get our medical info from them?

    Why can't the situation be looked at with intelligence/logistics instead of emotion?

  • I'm not against it. I never have been. I worked alongside a full bird captain who was gay and he was a great doctor and a great officer.

  • There is no logical reason not to have homosexual people in the military. There are pathetic excuses, including: "its not safe because there are people who would attack the gays", "it would interfere with morale and readiness", and "men don't want to take showers with gay men".
    I personally support equal rights for all, but I am definitely in the minority compared to the wishes of the nation as a whole.
