General Peter Pace ain’t budging. As gay rights activists blast his denunciation of homosexuality as “immoral”, his staffers insist the chairman of the Joint Chiefs will not retract his revolting comments.
Pace’s senior staff members said Tuesday that the general was expressing his personal opinion and had no intention of apologizing. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not allowed to speak on the record.
Meanwhile, Representative Marty Meehan – who has been leading the charge against Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell – took a little time to criticize Pace:
General Pace’s statements aren’t in line with either the majority of the public or the military… He needs to recognize that support for overturning (the policy) is strong and growing… [The military is] turning away good troops to enforce a costly policy of discrimination.
If there’s one thing the military has never understood, it’s logic.
