    Ah, now there is a window a person could drive a truck through. But rather than assail the character of many unknown persons who have engaged in all sorts of behavior, one could simply point out that the Rainbow flag is not the only flag other than the national flag of the United States of America to be displayed on an American held site in Afghanistan or Iraq.

    I'm sure you meant to include state flags, university flags, football team logos, the Confederate flag, etc...



    UGA GRADUATES prepare to hang a university flag over their barracks in Wardack, Afghanistan. Pictured are: (left to right) Major John Gary Church, Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources; Lieutenant. Colonel Catherine Tait, Franklin College of Arts and Sciences; Major George McCommon, CAES and College of Veterinary Medicine; and Sergeant. C







    You'll love this, they said that they didn't know what the SS flag meant.

    Methodists don't hide it, you're thinking Baptist.

    I love the eel roll. But alas, I eat it no more because I have no idea what is in the sauce. Did you know that "fish sauce" has something like 1600 mg of sodium per tablespoon?

    This is very true. One of the problems with the US military's policy of promoting cultural awareness is that some cultures are inherently repulsive, and the more that you know about them, the worse they get. The Afghans are hypocritical pederasts who speak of Islamic purity, then do vile things to children, but that doesn't matter. What does matter is that this flag simply gives them another thing to hate about the decadent Americans.

    There are lots of terms for ignorance and obnoxiousness, and given time, your screen name will become one of them. However, there is a difference between tolerating a lifestyle and approving of it. To you, anyone who tolerates homosexuality but doesn't give wholehearted approval to every aspect of it is a bigot. By creating this Manichean view, you alienate the tolerant in the hope of destroying all dissent, but it no longer works. It's the default position for failure to persuade. When a leftist calls someone a bigot nowadays, it simply means that he is losing the argument.
