And He's Right

This is the sort of thing we need to hear from President Bush and our Republican leaders.

AP: Gen. Pace calls homosexuality immoral---

WASHINGTON - The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Monday he considers homosexuality to be immoral and the military should not condone it by allowing gay soldiers to serve openly, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Marine Gen. Peter Pace likened homosexuality to adultery, which he said was also immoral, the newspaper reported on its Web site.
Right on both counts.

"I do not believe the United States is well served by a policy that says it is OK to be immoral in any way," Pace told the newspaper in a wide-ranging interview.
[. . .]
"I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we should not condone immoral acts," Pace said.
In a world that believes in moral relativity, it is refreshing to hear a leader of men speak in such bold terms. Homosexuality and adultery are immoral. There is no grey area here. Both are wrong on all counts.

We must always condemn such immorality, but at the same time, we must love the sinner, for we are all sons and daughters of God.
