Gays Oppose Medal for General Pace reports that two homosexual advocacy groups are criticizing the decision of President George W. Bush to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to retired Marine General Peter Pace , who served a single term as Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff. It is their reaction, however, which takes intolerance to an extreme.

Let's see if we have this right. A distinguished Marine, General Peter Pace, stated in a 2007 interview that he was personally opposed to what he sees as immorality in sexual matters. When was the last time we heard a public figure say something like that? Controversy ensued, causing the general to forego another term as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. But now President George W. Bush has chosen to recognize the service and character of General Pace by bestowing on him a special award, the Medal of Freedom.

This is too much for homosexual activist groups. They vilify the general with epithets intended to intimidate anyone who disagrees with their extreme views. If General Pace is opposed to sexual misconduct, of the straight or homosexual kind, where do his critics stand?

General Pace's views happen to coincide with the law regarding homosexuals in the military that was duly enacted by Congress in 1993. The statute reflects the views of people who see the issue in moral terms, but it uses secular language emphasizing military discipline and morale. President Bush, apparently, agrees with General Pace that such practices are inherently disruptive in both the military and civilian worlds.

The over-heated reaction of the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Left disrespects millions of people who do not share their views. The LGBT Left claims to advocate "tolerance," but intimidation employed to advance their sexual agenda reflects intolerance taken to an extreme.
