ABC News has more on Sam’s refusal to cave in to the powerful gay lobby:
Republican presidential candidate Sam Brownback is backing the Pentagon’s top general over his remarks that homosexual acts are immoral. The Kansas senator planned to send a letter on Thursday to President Bush supporting Marine Gen. Peter Pace, who earlier this week likened homosexuality to adultery and said the military should not condone it by allowing gay personnel to serve openly.
The chairman of the Joint Chiefs also said in an interview with the Chicago Tribune: “I believe that homosexual acts between individuals are immoral and that we should not condone immoral acts. I do not believe the United States is well-served by a policy that says it is OK to be immoral in any way.”
Lawmakers of both parties criticized the remarks, but Brownback’s letter called the criticism “both unfair and unfortunate.”
It’s sad that the other candidates all think that kow-towing before the gay lobby is more important than standing up for an American hero like General Pace.
