    Sorry general, it’s not like measels…you can’t catch it(gay).

  2. What could you expect from country ruled by catholic fanatics where abortion is ILLEGAL ALL CIRCUMSTANCES including rape and when the health of the mother is at risk

  3. “In July, Chile’s president Sebastian Pinera signed anti-discrimination legislation into law today.”

    Top quality reporting there, PN.

    But yes, this man should be removed. He has no place in the army as he obviously believes that he’s some sort of moral pillar. How would he feel if his life were saved by a gay troop?

  4. Most of the list is made up of groups from which the military would be understandably reluctant to take new recruits.
    But for some reason, the general decided to be clever and try to sneak some bigotry into the middle of a reasonable order. As though people weren’t going to notice?

    ‘Mental problems, homosexuals, Jehovah`s Witnesses’. Its from secret list, who must go to Auschwitz, I am right?

    Cristian Chateau should jump before he gets pushed. Chile, although Catholic has made considerable progress in LGBT issues and people like Chateau with their outdate views need to step aside.
