While it’s normally against military policy to allow soldiers in uniform to march in parades, the Defense Department made an exception for the gay pride parade in San Diego:

For SHAME!!! Disgracing their uniform marching in the Pride in Perversity garbage.
And the idiots that made the exception, don’t get me started.
Bend the rules? For Gays? Why not bend the rules for all allow soldiers to appear in uniform at dog fights and strip clubs? Since there is so much public attention, why not just suspend all rules? Why not have sailor simply be exempt from uniforms entirely?
Why don’t they just start doing porno films while cruising in the Persian Gulf? Nude sun bathing off Darfur? Training films for teen gay recruiting?
Limits are hard to set and hard to maintain. You have to have a conscience in order to set and keep them.
Yeah, that ain’t right. If you can bend the rules for A, then you can bend the rules for B, and I don’t believe in bending the rules for either case.
Why not just run out and rent a costume instead? Worked for the Village People.
First they bend the rules for homosexuals. Now they set the precedent and next they’ll be bending the rules for Atheists, Muslims, Flying Spaghetti monster worshipers. Where will it end? Oh, that’s right, they’ll not make an exception for parades where the Military could come across as normal, proud, patriotic, good Americans. That would be an exception too far probably.
Next year, can the pedophiles proudly march in the NAMBLA Parade?
Where does it end?
But, of course… Once you create a protected class, they automatically get special ‘Rights’… Political Correctness rules the day now… Remember the Marine who was discharged for Posting negative things about Obama on Facebook.. Well, ‘Conservatism’ is not yet a ‘Protected Class’ to be given the ‘Special Right’ of Free Speech…
Gay, not gay, I don’t really care.
I’m just sick of my military being turned into some kind of social experiment.
If after visiting this site, you still don’t care….then cool.
I’ll stay straight thank you very much
I can’t afford any lipstick
I just checked out that site. I despise these filthy cornholers more than I already did. If I was a billionare, I’d pay the major networks to let Scott Lively preach on prime time TV.
Why the exception? PC?
If this continues, I can foresee an exodus from the army in the not-so-distant future. The numbers of people who are willing to serve their country whilst amongst this muck is falling dramatically even as of today.
It is well known that military personnel are among the most conservative groups of people in America (and even in most other nations too), and would thus be key in any uprising by the American people against a tyrannical unconstitutional US government. The repeal of DADT was just one step in the direction of dismantling that group and thus dismantling the US army itself, whilst our enemies in government build up their “civilian national security force” in the mould of the Schutzstaffel, who will be loyal only to the tyrannical state in the event of such an uprising.
Do your homework people.
I could care less whether these people choose to be gay or not, or choose to march in a stupid parade. I guess being gay is their choice, to be dealt with between them and God. What I do care about is the fact that rules don’t apply to you if you are a ‘protected species’ – be it gay, hyphenated-American, anything-but-Christian, or any number of growing minorities. Pretty soon we have no rules at all, anything goes for anybody at any time. Let society fall apart, it’s okay.
Perhaps, someday the God-fearing, Constitution-loving, fiscally-responsible Conservative Christian will be the minority and we’ll be awarded all the perks and waivers. No, I think not. We will just be rounded up and corralled away.
I have a thought. How about we grant some relief to the weakest of all our minorities, the one that really can’t defend itself, the one that needs all our help – the unborn baby awaiting an abortion. I could really see us all getting behind the protection of a few rights for them. It’s a choice, people. A pro-choice. What do you say? Too big of a request?
Dear God, I hope not.
Good post. I especially appreciate the last paragraph.
As a retired military member I will say, I do care. I’m not jumping on you at all… just saying that being gay in the military used to be illegal. Now we have a socialist in office and magically, it’s okay now. He has demoralized and destroyed the fabric of this Christian nation from day one. Allowing this minor, twisted minority to march in uniform in support of this evil sickness is appalling. It’s sin and the uniform has historically been something to respect. Military members were often viewed as the best America had to offer and they epitomized patriotism, service, integrity and honor.
I could go on… I’m just so mad right now (and it’s only Monday).
I agree with you. What I don’t care about is them being gay. What I detest is using the military as a tool for their agenda. If they kept their sexuality in the bedroom where it belonged, it would not infringe upon our lives and, as far as I’m concerned, wouldn’t cause the waves that they so dearly want to create.
They claim we infringe upon their lives and in trying to publicize it in every way, end up infringing on everybody else’s. But that’s okay to them. Just another ‘ends justifies the means’ technique.
You’re spot on. The more “rights” they get, the less rights we have left. Can’t give them something without taking some things away from other people or groups. This demeans the military and it just shouldn’t be allowed or legal.
I really do not see this as a gay issue.. it is simply not right to allow one group privileges and deny them to others. Why should gay military members be allowed this and not Asian military members? What about black, or brown or white members? This is jacked up big time..
Everyone should be treated the same by the government and the law., screw the groups, that is just a liberal Divide and Conquer play. This is the leftist government deciding who gets pandered to today.
If the UCMJ or whatever code of military behavior says no marching in parades in uniform it goes for all military members.
End of story.
It was indeed a violation of the UCMJ to wear your uniform in a public way like this. Ah, but the DoD must have evolved… well, devolved in this case.
Right Right…so they ban bibles in the military cause its a national security threat but being openly gay is ofcourse contributes to national security…
it all makes sense now…it really does seeing which way the country is now heading under this Barack Obama guy…
What is happening to you America?
Obama’s attack on Christianity as well as every symbol that reflects the exceptionalism of our nation is flagrant and the intensity will surely increase if re-elected. Without restrictions, Obama and his ilk along with the cowardly RINOs will tranform our nation into what is in their best interests with absolutely no regards for the rights of the American people. Obamacare will destroy our economy and our standard of living will be reduced to levels in line with those Obama feels we should be at. Freedoms be damned.
This is a dark day in America.
When I was in the USAF, it was illegal to be in uniform for nearly any public function… political, protests, rallies, GAY PARADES…
Once this twisted seed has been planted, it will grow and choke out reason and morals in this country. There is no turning back.
I’m ashamed of the DoD for breaking with hundreds of years of military history and protocol. There are solid reaons why homosexuals were discharged if found out. Were there gays in the military before? Sure. Were they out in the open. No. Were they a problem before – from personal experience, yes, to a point. Now that they are outed are they a problem? Most likely based on the sentiment I experienced with my friends and fellow servicemen, I would say there are going to be a number of bad situations that arise from this – especially since it’s been illegal for centuries to be openly gay in the military.
Time will tell, but this is bad policy, this will corrupt our military over time, and it is an abomination to God. Just another giant leap in the fagging of America. I’m ticked off.
Ok, so a gay military member can march in a parade in uniform… something out of bounds to all other military members…
How “F” ed up is that? The liberal way, make all kinds of special rules for different groups, ever wonder why we have so much leftist inspired group hate?
Divide and Conquer , the leftist way..
I think I’m going to start marching in white pride parades..OH WAIT! I can’t do that without being outcast? Why not?
These service members are a disgrace to their uniform.
The liberal overseers deciding who and which special group gets what…
Liberals S U C K.
Wrong headline again Scoop.
Nobody understand what sort of genus are these living things
Correct ones should sound like :
Pederasts-soldiers allowed to march in uniform in San Diego animal-B(f)uckers parade
Lesbians-soldiers allowed to march in uniform in San Diego animal-B(f)uckers parade
Necrophil-soldiers allowed to march in uniform in San Diego animal-B(f)uckers parade
Pedophile-soldiers allowed to march in uniform in San Diego animal-B(f)uckers parade
The rules should be the same for everyone…including gays. I’ve about had it with liberals breaking the rules for their special interest groups.
Gay Pride Parades by definition are political marches. Can Armed Forces Personnel March in uniform in Pro-life Marches? Or is defending someone’s sexual preferences more important than defending innocent lives?
We all know the answer, but don’t confuse the the “Party of Mass Cultural Destruction” with logic.
What a joke, I did 9 years and part of this stupid shit was the reason I got out. They can piss on the uniform that I earned as well as millions of others who respected an oath that they took without politicizing thier beliefs in uniform. We should be able to do a anti-gay pride parade then to make it fair all around.
That’s a great idea !
a “STRAIGHT PARADE”
(but I bet it would be found offensive to some )
WELCOME TO THE SCOOP!
If it ain’t broke – don’t fix it!
The military system worked efficiently for over 100 years
Why try and fix something that wasn’t broken ?
Again – we see Bizarro thinking!
Let us not forget Gordon James Klingenschmitt, the Navy Chaplain who was reprimanded and his military career ended because he had the audacity to publically pray in Jesus’ Name while in uniform. While he was ordered not to wear his uniform while pubically praying in Jesus’ Name, it is perfectly acceptable for homosexuals to march in a perversion parade with public acts of illegal indecent behavior, while wearing their military uniforms.
Is it any wonder why America is in the trouble it is?
Hagee: Gay Marriage = ‘Kiss This Country Goodbye’
Could they march in uniform in a pro-life parade?! An anti-Muhammed parade? A KKK parade? A black panther parade? An Anti-Obama parade? Ever notice how PC makes people bend over and grab their ankles for Leftie cause but never for right or conservative causes?! (not that all my examples are right causes!) The double standards are appalling, and as I have said PC will be the death knell of the USA!!
Despicable and disgraceful to the uniform and our country! These Homos are spitting right in our military faces! Thanks to Oloser and the Democraps! A sad day in America!
Wasn’t one of the Village People dressed as a sailor? I’m sure all the jihadists out there are laughing their butts off at this. This looks terrible.
TRS, was my post offensive, couldn’t have been more offensive than our military marching in this parade? Was to be reviewed them disappeared.
There will be more exceptions. Count on it.
Exchanging the truth for a lie is an old theme throughout the history of humankind. What’s missing from this mindset is the end result of a fallen civilization. If God didn’t cut any slack on Sodom and Gomorrah, then how is it that people thnk that He will spare his wrath on this civilization? The truth is, He won’t. When a people sow to the wind, don’t be surprised if they end up reaping the whirlwind.
When wearing your uniform ,marching in a Homosexual pride parade ok , but showing some boobies when feeding your kids not ok? I wonder how they feel about this.
Two Fairchild Air Force Base, Wash., airmen who donned their uniforms for a photo session in support of Breastfeeding Awareness Month violated a policy that forbids military members from using the uniform to further a cause, promote a product or imply an endorsement, said Capt. Keith Kosik, spokesman for the Washington National Guard.
A photo of Senior Airman Terran Echegoyen-McCabe and Staff Sgt. Christina Luna breastfeeding their children in unbuttoned airman battle uniforms went viral this week. Echegoyen-McCabe, the mother of 10-month-old twin girls, is pictured with her T-shirt pushed above her bared chest.

“For the look on their faces bears witness against them; they proclaim their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it. Woe to them! For they have brought evil on themselves.” Isaiah 3:9
Marching in wholesome family parades (eg. 4th of July parades) is one thing. Military does it all the time. It’s marching in activist parades that we arent even allowed to usually attend (uniform or not) due to the fact we could be a target, either positive or negative.
those are also federal holidays, not a pride march.
America’s military is on it’s way down, just like America’s economy, regardless of what our politians say.
My Grandad, a Calvalry officer and trench mortar commander in WWI, later to become Vinegar Joe Stillwells adjutant in WWII is literally turning in his grave. Nauseating, at the least.
No exceptions. I bet they wouldn’t let the military march in a Tea Party parade.
ever since they ordered our marines to stow their weapons for the first time in a combat zone,,this admin has done nothing but,,degrade our troop’s!
Sickening. Man oh man have we lost our way.
Unreal. Panetta needs to go! They can march in a gay-pride parade in uniform but I can’t march in any other politically sensitive parade in uniform? Why? Now that they let this happen they have to let them all happen. Why just this parade in San Diego? Thats not fair to gays in the military that are on the east coast who couldn’t make it there? Whose decision was this??
If all the gays want is to be treated like everyone else then stop demanding to get to do things that the rest of the military isn’t allowed to do just because your gay!! This should have been shot down a long time ago. It should have been a no brainer. If we are all Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen or Marines and are defined by our service and the uniform then why this “exception” to define themselves as gay?? Infuriated.
even worse, the DOD made exception due to organizers urging people to violate ucmj and march in uniform.
this was pre-emptive permission.
You haven’t seen anything yet. At some point you’re going to get Sanduskys showing up as drill sergeants. That’s when the fun really starts.
