US: Idaho man donates cemetary plot, so lesbian veteran can be buried next to her wife

    Restores a little faith in humanity

  • Derek Northcote

    Read this in the Washington Times, and oh boy it brought a tear to my eye.

    This is what humanity should be about and not all the religious bullcr@p who purport to be the moral arbiters.

    • Steven Gregory

      You are so intensely CORRECT!
      I read about this woman’s plight: elderly and alone, being denied burial near her wife, and it rings as just one more way for someone with a tiny bit of authority to be mean-spirited. Then along comes Barry Johnson and offers what he earned because he feels it’s the right thing to do.

      Ellen Page summed it up: The world would be “a whole lot better if we just made an effort to be less horrible to one another.”

    What a wonderful man.

    That is what I call Patriotism, Honor, Dignity, and Real Americanism!
    That man is a True American!

    If only more people were like this gentleman, the world would be a much better place. A real officer and a gentleman.

    All I can say is thank you.

    Barry Johnson continues to serve his country with pride. Many people in the United States are lost, wobbling with self-inflicted wounds of a made-up war against gays and lesbians. Johnson is a steady voice of reason and humane concern. Good for him and those who hear him.

  • Steve Craftman

    Barry, thank you for your generosity, concern and help.
