There's a movement coming, rising slowly but steadily.  It is a reaction to those who's virulent hatred is spewed  all over the papers, television and radio.  As a result, repeal of DADT is so very close to passage. It isn't over due, it's a never should have been.

John McCain, in a very tight race to stay in his job, has promised to filibuster until it goes away.  Just for the record, he's a former supporter of the bill. http://bit.ly/aA8IAZ

In the meantime, the right wing wants the law completely repealed; apparently on the assumption that Americans will rise up and force it's reinstatement out of fear loathing and bigotry. For the first time in who knows how long, the right and left agree on something!  Hurray.

I read an article from April of this year, about the end of the stupidity that’s DADT will destroy military chaplaincy. http://bit.ly/da7IqH.  How sad for the chaplains who believe it and the people they will abandon as a result.

Chaplains are trained to serve all sorts of religions in the service.  Jewish Rabbis definitely aren't Christian but function and minister/priest when need.  Catholic priest are suppose to be anti-every other faith including what they consider heretics, i.e. any other church that claims to be Christian, yet they perform services for Methodist, Baptist, Buddhist etc.

Frankly I'm convinced they are afraid.  They are apparently too old to be flexible.  Curiously they are flexible for other beliefs.  It would seem that's as flexible as they can get.  But they aren't the only chaplains in service.  It seems it’s just the ones who are retired and those who disagree.

Wouldn't you love to know the number of active chaplains who oppose ending DADT?  I surely would. What about the number of Senators who are running scared of loosing their seats?

Yes, I’m agitating – again. Deal with it.

We have learned, a bit to late in the day, that action springs not from thought but from a readiness for responsibility.....Silenc e in the face of evil is of itself evil.  Not to speak is to speak.  Not to act is to act.
