Booing of Gay Soldier
Tony Plakas, Executive Director of Compass, stated, "I think what people will remember is that group (of Americans there) was booing a member of the U.S. military."
I always said--if I were born black, I would be at the front of that bus. If I were gay, I would be doing exactly what Tony is doing. However, sometimes it is impossible to see anyone's point, whether right or not, that differs.
Rick Santorum said that injecting social policy as well as sexual activity has absolutely no place in the military and should not be an issue. "Social experimentation in the military is tragic," he said. "Sex should not be an issue," he further stated.
The gay community made a big deal of the booing when Stephen Hill, gay soldier, asked his question. When you listen to the tape, there was little booing and that was blown out of proportion. There was, however, a lot of clapping after Rick Santorum spoke to the issue.
