Gay Yellow Elephants? Ten More Days
GOProud, an organization of gay conservatives, strongly supports the continued fight against terrorism:
Ten Years Later: The Fight Must ContinueOYE Comment:
GOProud on the 10th Anniversary of the Attacks of September 11th
(Washington, DC) – This weekend is the 10 year anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. In response, the Board of Directors of GOProud, the only national organization representing gay conservatives and their allies, issued the following statement:
“The most powerful and tangible way that we can honor the 10th anniversary of these horrific attacks is to recommit to fighting and winning the global war on terror. [emphasis added]
“The threat posed by the spread of radical jihadist Islam is no less real today than it was ten years ago.
“Radical Islam is a barbaric ideology, one that preaches destruction of the west and advocates brutality against women, gays and religious minorities.
“The truth is that for gay and lesbian people across the globe there is no single bigger threat than the spread of radicalized Islam.
“We must remain vigilant in the war on global terror. We must defend Israel, a bright light of freedom, in a dangerous area of the world. We must stay on the offensive, actively working to stop the spread of radical Islam and supporting efforts to remove regimes in the Islamic world that fail to recognize basic human rights.
“The greatest tribute to those who sacrificed their lives on September 11, 2001 is the defeat of the murderous ideology behind those despicable attacks.”
O.K., GOProud, effective 20 SEP 2011: Has your organization encouraged its members [healthy and 34 or under] at least to consider volunteering for military service, to recommit to fighting and winning the global war on terror?
We couldn't readily find anything to this effect on your website.
Please let us know. Thank you.
