Training the Troops for Same-Sex Encounters

May 11, 2011

The troop training has begun. Not for a mission. This training is for the widespread acceptance of homosexual behavior.

The Washington Post reports on a training session at the Marine compound in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Major Daniel Bartos is explaining to about 40 Marines what will happen after the ban on gays in the military ends.

The reaction of Marines who see members of the same sex kissing each other, or engaging in other affectionate activity? They are supposed to pretend they are members of opposite sexes, suggests the major. How’s that for denial? And one Marine answers a hypothetical question this way: to be critical of homosexual behavior “is inappropriate in any situation, whether the Marine is homosexual, heterosexual, black, white, we’re all Marines, we’re all professionals,” said a corporal.

He was praised as “spot-on” by the major, who smiled. This is the future of our military? Happy?
