    Oh the irony of the pathetic mind.

    So sad, he’s clearly obsessed.

    Mr. Fischer I believe the continual allowance of prayer and religious symbols in any component of the military challenges the Constitution of the United States.
    The research shows that your religious convictions are a choice and are often times used to manipulate people and coerce these said people into believing things that are not true. Your god does not exist, never existed and will never exist. in my professional opinion, you are delusional.
    Now, that said, where do you get these bizarre notions? Have you also become a military expert in the last couple of months? I am sure the Pentagon would love to meet with you. Perhaps they can send your sorry butt to the front lines. As a casaulty of war you would NOT be missed.

    What a crazy f******* idiot…Hard to believe that people really pay any attention to what this glob of matter has to say….a real butt joke…Did he ever go to school because if he did how could he be so stupid….I guess what is more stupid is that a lot of right wing nuts think he’s really God…that is sad…

    Hey, the Armed Forces are HIRED KILLERS!! Their morality goes as far as making sure they don’t kill their own people; very few would care a jot if they have Gay people and their spouses as neighbours!

      Nice to see those without a sense of irony have marked this post down. Well done you humourless individuals. Why not go back to the Daily Mail letters page?

        Perhaps marking down your post is because in the United States we have a volunteer army that is normally made up of our neighbors and friends who feel they have a duty to their country and their government.

        Yes, they are paid, just as police and firemen are paid.

        Whether everyone in the USA agrees with our government’s policies, the military follows the orders of the civilian government.

        Like any other large body of people, there are some who do not follow what some perceive as moral standards, but for the most part our military do better than some other militaries I know.

        More to the point of this story is the fact that not only did the report generated by the armed forces point out there was negligable “harm” by getting rid of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, but there was a perceptible improvement in morale due to getting rid of it.

          So basically none of them really care about Gay people working and/or living with them, which is what I said. Confused about why it got marked down, though.
          The UK also has a Volunteer army, as do many other EU nations. Conscript Armies are now rather more rare than they were 100 years ago, so therefore people that join up are doing so in the full knowledge they will be ordered to kill someone, hence the “Hired Killers” line.
          It comes to something when you have to justify your comments to people that seem to AGREE with them!

          1. Jon "maddog" Hall 13 Feb 2013, 8:51pm

            Then you can include the police in your assessment? While not all police will have to kill someone in the line of duty, some will. Likewise not all people in the military will have to kill someone, some some will.

            Perhaps it was your judgement on their morality that got your remark “marked down”, and I do not think I have to actually point that out to you.

    Just a rehash of their scare-mongering of when Don’t Ask Don’t Tell was being got rid of. What utter garbage.

    I know what reduces my morale, not having any custard. Completely ruin my day that would

  9. Since the American Family Association has been identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group, continuing to call them a “Christian group,” or “fundamentalist group” grants them a certain degree of neutrality, instead of the accurate designation.

  10. These jackasses give the concept of family a bad name. The word ‘family’ is increasingly becoming a synonym for ‘anti-gay.’ They even make normal Christians look bad – my devout Catholic friend is in favour of SSM, on the grounds that not everybody in the UK is Christian and should not therefore be bound by Christian laws.

  11. Maybe this idiot needs reminding that when he speaks out “against” LGBT, he is not speaking to second class citizens!, He is criticizing the very people who are protecting the “life, liberty and country” not just Americans, but “also” members of the AFA.

    If LGBT military personnel fight or defend, are on the same battle field, fighting the same enemy in the same clear and present danger, taking the same risks to life and limb, they are no less entitled to the same recognition than anyone else.

    It’s fair and just that the military finally admit LGBT deserve the same rights, remuneration, benefits and pensions. No more, no less!

    Same is Equal… get over it!

  12. It never ceases to amaze me how ‘expert’ religions are on gay matters. How does this silly peddler-of-myths-and-fairy-stories KNOW the effect gay marriage will have on ANYONE? On what evidence does he base his assertion? Mind you, on what evidence does he base his career? But then, the USA seems to be one of the most gullible nations on earth when it comes to religion.
