Whether being gay goes against Jewish teachings or not isn't the point here. Talking back to your parents got you stoned in the streets as well. The links were supposed to be about holidays, not linked to some homo-phobe's ramblings and opinions about Jewish doctrine. When I had to provide links to the Chaplain's Office about Pagan holidays (I'm no longer a Pagan BTW), the links I gave went straight to holiday x, y, or z; not the "Do Wiccans Practice Nude" page. Why? Because the NOTAMs were there for holidays, not Paganism 101.
Can someone post the homosexual content that's in question from this site?
I don't know if he is still in charge of the NOTAMs, but the Rabbi use to be the one in charge of that. And since I've been here (2006), the Rabbi has always been in charge of meeting the needs of the minority religions here at USAFA.
I can already tell you that there's a Rabbi here at USAFA. I know him and worked along side him when I ran a group here. So no need to check into whether or not there's a Rabbi here.
"The only thing that causes someone to be treated differently is when they mark themselves out as different."
People shouldn't have to hide the fact that they're gay. Just saying that you're gay doesn't mean that you're parading around in some stereotypical "gay" outfit letting the world know; but the second you "come out" at an institution like the Air Force Academy, the entire cadet wing (4000+ cadets, not including faculty, staff, etc...) will know. And "coming out" could be as simple as a gay cadet walking down the sidewalk holding hands with another gay cadet (not in uniform of course). So now that everyone knows, do you really think that those cadets wouldn't be treated differently by some of the neanderthals around here we call people? I highly doubt it.
Homosexual agenda? What would that be? To be treated like everyone else maybe? What a crazy agenda that would be here in the so called "land of the free".
From "The Free Exercise of Religion in the Air Force" computer based training course:
Chaplains are a resource available to everyone
1. Provide ministry to those of their own faith.
2. Facilitate ministry to those of other faiths.
3. Provide care for all service members, including those who claim no religious faith.
4. Respect the rights of others to their own religious beliefs, including the right to hold no beliefs.
5. Remain sensitive to the responsibilities of superior rank.
6. Respect professional settings where mandatory participation may make expressions of religious faith inappropriate.
Seems like they could use some refresher training, especially on numbers 3, 4, and 6.
