MSNBC Headlines Gay Couple Kissing After Navy Deployment; Conservatives Go Nuts

Exposing the hate…
LGF • Views: 27,126

This afternoon, MSNBC ran an above the fold photo showing a Navy sailor kissing her partner as the first sailor off their ship. That, by itself isn’t particularly newsworthy.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta, left, kisses her girlfriend of two years, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell, at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek in Virginia Beach on Wednesday, Dec. 22. It’s a tradition at Navy homecomings that one sailor is chosen by raffle to be first off the ship to kiss a loved one. Wednesday, for the first time, the reunited couple was same-sex.

That both of the people involved in the kiss are women makes it noteworthy, and instead of honoring the service of the Petty Officer, Free Republic posters are showing their pettiness and vindictiveness, to say nothing of their anti-gay and anti-Obama sentiment. The comments are disgusting (and I’ve truncated for space):

First comment:
Awwww….isn’t that just precious?
(sickening sarcasm)

Second comment:
So it begins the total down hill turn for our nation and its military, glad I am out!

Down a bit:
Ok, well the US military it is no longer.
I’m, just going to go ahead and call it the US fagitary.
Nice going, president Ohomo.

This is the same forum that not long ago honored service in the military, and now they’re disparaging a sailor who happens to be a woman kissing her partner, who also happens to be a woman.

Moreover, some of the same people who are registering their disgust over the policy would also be among those who would have no problems if this was a scenario playing out in a porno film.

These critics need to get over themselves; women are in the military and they are doing a service to the nation that we are indebted. There are gays who serve in the military and can now serve without fear that they would have to give up their commissions because they are openly gay. They too are people to whom all Americans are indebted since they’re putting their lives on the line to protect the nation.

That someone who is a woman and happens to be gay is serving in the military should not be a shock, nor should a photo of their first kiss off the boat be cause for derision and anger.

Here’s another lovely comment on this subject, from a Sarah Posner post at Religion Dispatches:

God Is Not Mocked…..You Reap What You Sow…..
Posted by JLof on December 21, 2011 at 1:38 PM

“nothing but love and happiness…”

Probably the same kind of smug, God-hating, derisive mocking heard prior to God flooding the entire earth and killing almost every human and animal; and heard in Sodom and Gomorrah prior to those cities being wiped out. But, as Scripture says, God is NOT mocked. What is sown WILL be reaped….
