Question for you

I have just one question for you: do you SERIOUSLY wish to remove someone who has served their country so skillfully, simply because you disagree with their religious stance? Generals simply do not “grow on trees”.
As the son of a WWII vet, I’m asking you to stop trying to destroy the military simply over a religious disagreement.

What we seriously wish for is that a general who violates both the law and Air Force regulations has to face the consequences of his actions.

Contrary to your assertion, we are trying to protect and strengthen the military, not destroy it. We are working to protect the rights of the women and men in our military. Ours is not a “religious disagreement.”  We have no quarrel with Major General Olson’s faith; we quarrel with his participation, in uniform, in a political event disguised as a religious event.

Did you know that when the true political nature of the event became known people walked out, one of them being an original sponsor of it?

As the son of a WWII veteran, I hope you’ll be a bit more discerning about the danger to our military that comes from the effort on the part of a fundamentalist Christian sect to assume power over it.

You might want to pose some more important questions to those behind that effort.
