I just thought I'd throw a little heresy in the mix and see what happens.

But come on though. The guy is gay, he broke up with his gay lover and became disgruntled with the military for reasons no doubt having to do with his gayness. I have nothing against Gays, but I am familiar with their behavior and based on my observations, stuff like this should be expected. Gay guys get emotional and bent out of shape in ways that straight guys don't and they do things like this guy did.

It isn't about hate, it's just about having the power of observation.

Have any large scientific studies to back that up?

From my experience, most Republicans I know are dumb hillbillies with racist issues, but that doesn't mean its true

Then why is it Liberals are the ones who can never discuss any issue without calling people names or making comparisons that are beyond stupid?

You forgot to use a proper conjunction, i.e.,

Seems the soldier who leaked thousands of classified documents, Bradly Manning was disgruntled AND a homosexual.

The statement that Manning was "a disgruntled Homosexual(sic)" implies that his disgruntledness was a product of his homosexuality and there is nothing that would indicate that this was the basis of his motivation.

But of course you probably knew that, but it just didn't fit into your intended purpose.

How could we possibly have known that a gay soldier might get involved with some gay drama, fly off the handle emotionally and do something stupid?

After all, that would require two eyes, two ears and a brain.

Ya, I know his being gay is just a big coincidence and it could just as easily have been a straight guy. You have to have an IQ under room temperature to believe that one.
God knows there have never been any straight members of the military who would have done such a thing, or worse.

Except of course:

Chief Warrant Officer John Anthony Walker Jr.

Senior Chief Petty Officer Jerry Whitworth

Seaman Michael Walker

Sgt Clyde Lee Conrad

Corporal Charles Lee Francis Anzalone,

Jeffrey Carney (USAF)

Spc 4 Albert T Sombolay

Petty Officer Kurt G. Lessenthien

Seaman Timothy Steven Smith

Specialist (E-4) Ryan Gibson Anderson

or

Petty Officer Ariel Weinmann

But then again I have an IQ of room temperature, of course some rooms are hotter than others.

The point is, the fact that stereotypes are wrong, and saying that someone behaves in a way you don't like is gay, is kind of silly.

I could call someone that believes in creation stupid, but that wouldn't make it true either. Educating yourself about your beliefs is fine, its the willful ignorance that is stupid.

You're seriously bringing up that ridiculous, fabricated thread based on a fake suicide note probably written by the OP herself. I was just being playful by giving that women exactly what she wanted - an evil opponent to vilify while she goes on her made-up, indignant tirade. The most entertaining thread on here in months.

Guys, the guy being gay is absolutely Germain to the issue.

I think it is absurd and telling that none of you can admit the simple fact that the guy's homosexual issues were the cause of his actions. You people honestly can not admit one single criticism of one single gay soldier without feeling that you will be condemning all Gays and betraying your principles.

You have no idea how humored I am in reading your responses. It's like teasing monkeys and watching them freak out. Hahahaha!!!!

What does someone's sexual PREFERENCE have to do with anything? You act like a homosexual person is incapacitated. You must also think women can't serve because they get their periods.

it just shows that the need to look at what people that are disgrntled may do in their sick way of getting some sort of revenge or whatever he saw as his mission in this. Its like not hiring someone to handle money that has debt.
