Gay Soldiers Attacked In Possible Hate Crime
provided by HuffPost-AOL

Two soldiers were bloodied and beaten outside of a Colorado Springs restaurant in an apparent hate crime.

One of the victims -- using the name Chris to protect his identity -- is gay and told News First 5 that it started when a group of men and women took issue with their clothing.

I disagree strongly with the OP.

Being gay does not justify assault. It is the assailants who are in the wrong here, not the victims.

The people who committed this assault are criminals and should be caught, tried and prosecuted. It is not the "fault" of the persons attacked and in a civilised society, no person should have to hide any characteristic of themselves because of fear of attack.

Those men have every right to wear whatever form of clothing they choose, provided it breaks no law. The OP's comment that "Best to keep one's business to themselves" suggests to me that he believes those men should in some way hide who they are, or live their lives in some sort of shadow.

That is a form of fascism that no civilised society should stand for, and to repress decent people in that way is quite reprehensible.

The crime, in this case, lies with the assailants. It is THEY who should be condemned, not their victims.

And that's all I have to say.

me being active duty, i see all types of people from our nation.

IMO, most of the people who have a problem with race/gays in the military come from these old back woods militia, little a** towns where education is Johnny Rebel Albums.

they don't know any better. i just wonder, when s*** hits the fan on a convoy or patrol, are they gonna care if it's a gay guy pulling them out a burning gun truck?

ignorance is bliss, gays do not effect combat readiness, only upbringing.

The problem with your argument is that Colorado Springs can't really be called a small town OR back woods. Those are all in the mountains and far Eastern Plains (think driving distance from Kansas East), and even then they aren't really that bad.

I wish the freaking christians would just do the same and just shut the f*** up and keep to themselves.. And the f***ing republicans as well.

If they would all just shut the f*** up and lie about who they were and what they believed everyone would get along much better.

f***ing troll.
