Open Fire, Let Him Have It

Senator John Warner says he believes the military should approve the acceptance of homosexuals because he doesn't consider homosexual acts
immoral. Senator Warner was responding to comments by Marine General Peter Pace's denouncing the abolition of the military's "don't ask,
don't tell" policy regarding homosexuals serving in the military.

General Pace said, "I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we should not condone immoral acts. I do not
believe the United States is well served by a policy that says it is OK to be immoral in any way.

"I would not want acceptance of overt homosexual behavior to be our policy, just like I would not want it to be our policy that if we were
to find out that so-and-so was sleeping with somebody else's wife, that we would just look the other way, which we do not. We prosecute
that kind of immoral behavior."

Military law, which Gen. Pace was defending, prohibits homosexual acts.

Senator Warner responded to General Pace's comments saying, "I respectfully, but strongly, disagree with the chairman's (Gen. Pace)
view that homosexuality is immoral." Sen. Warner is the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee and is seeking to
overturn the current "don't ask, don't tell" policy instituted by former President Bill Clinton.

Members of the military cannot speak on this issue because it is political. They are depending on family and friends to speak on their

Warner's office number is (202)224-2023.

Have Fun!!
