Military Prefers Criminals To Queers

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee released new information today revealing that the United States’ armed services have offered more “moral waiver” than previously disclosed. Those waivers allow convicted felons to serve despite their criminal records.

According to the data given to the committee by the Department of Defense, the Army allowed the most waivers in 2006 and 2007. During this period, moral or felony waivers were given to 3 soldiers who had been convicted of manslaughter. One soldier was allowed in following a kidnapping or abduction conviction, 11 were convicted of arson, 142 convicted of burglary, 3 who were convicted of indecent acts or liberties with a child, 7 who were convicted of rape, sexual assault, criminal sexual assault, incest or other sex crimes and 3 who were convicted of terrorist threats including bomb threats.

Gays, meanwhile, must remain in the closet, unlike common criminals.
