Intolerance is also a sin jackass.

“In other words, it doesn’t matter what your skin color is, it’s what’s inside of your heart,†Klingenschmitt said. “And if your heart is full of corruption or sin or immorality — in this case, homosexuality — then you should be discriminated against.â€

So if what’s in a gay person’s heart is really good but because he’s gay that means he’s ‘disordered’ and should be discriminated against anyway…go f0ck urself kindly Mr. former navy chaplain.

In September 2006, LT Gordon Klingenschmitt was reprimanded and fined $3,000 for disobeying an order not to wear his military uniform at a protest. Klingenschmitt was honorably discharged from the Navy in March 2007.

Wikipedia has the man honourably discharged; what’s the disgraced part in the post about? I certainly find the guy disgraceful but do wonder where the “disgraced” comes from. This sounds like a slap on the wrist.

Klingenschmitt doesn’t understand a goddamned thing about the real Martin Luther King Jr, whose closest advisor was Bayard Rustin, an openly gay man.

Rustin took leave from the War Resisters League in 1956 to advise Martin Luther King Jr. on Gandhian tactics. King was organizing the public transportation boycott in Montgomery, Alabama, known as the Montgomery Bus Boycott. According to Rustin, “I think it’s fair to say that Dr. King’s view of non-violent tactics was almost non-existent when the boycott began. In other words, Dr. King was permitting himself and his children and his home to be protected by guns.” Rustin convinced King to abandon the armed protection, including a personal handgun.[13]

The following year, Rustin and King began organizing the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). Many African-American leaders were concerned that Rustin’s sexual orientation and past Communist membership would undermine support for the civil rights movement. U.S. Representative Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., who was a member of the SCLC’s board, forced Rustin’s resignation from the SCLC in 1960 by threatening to discuss Rustin’s morals charge in Congress.[14] Although Rustin was open about his sexual orientation and his conviction was a matter of public record, the events had not been discussed widely outside the civil rights leadership.

March on Washington

Despite shunning from some civil rights leaders,

[w]hen the moment came for an unprecedented mass gathering in Washington, Randolph pushed Rustin forward as the logical choice to organize it.[15]

A few weeks before the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in August 1963, Senator Strom Thurmond railed against Rustin as a “Communist, draft-dodger, and homosexual,” and had the entire Pasadena arrest file entered in the record.[15] Thurmond also produced an FBI photograph of Rustin talking to King while King was bathing, to imply that there was a same-sex relationship between the two. Both men denied the allegation of an affair.

Rustin was instrumental in organizing the march. He drilled off-duty police officers as marshals, bus captains to direct traffic, and scheduled the podium speakers. Eleanor Holmes Norton and Rachelle Horowitz were aides.[15]
Despite King’s support, NAACP chairman Roy Wilkins did not want Rustin to receive any public credit for his role in planning the march. Nevertheless, he did become well known. On September 6, 1963, Rustin and Randolph appeared on the cover of Life magazine as “the leaders” of the March.[16]

“And if your heart is full of full of corruption or sin or immorality — in this case, homosexuality homophobia — then you should be discriminated against” — or better still, ignored.

I suspect, ‘Reverend’ Klingenschmitt, that when I use the word character and you use it we have very different meanings for it.

Because you, sir, are a douchebag.
