Republican Rep. James Inhofe Incensed That Gay Servicemen Marched In Uniforms At San Diego PRIDE

Rep. Randy Forbes (R-VA) and the very unpopular Rep. James Inhofe (R-OK) are INCENSED over the fact that the Pentagon allowed LGBT servicemen to march in uniform in the San  Diego Gay Pride Parade

Wrote Inhofe in a letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta:

“If the Navy can punish a chaplain for participating in a pro-life event or a  Marine participating in a political rally, it stands to reason that DOD should  maintain the same standard and preclude service members in uniform from marching  in a gay-pride parade. I respectfully request a detailed explanation of the  rationale you used to grant this ‘one-time waiver’ of DOD policy, who requested  the waiver, why this waiver was considered justified over other requests, and  whether you are considering other exceptions to current policy.”

Inhofe who recently that he was so glad that we didn’t have any of  “them” in our family scores 0% in every one of his terms on Human Rights Campaign’s position scorecard and Inhofe’s office has said he “does not hire openly gay staffers due to the possibility of a conflict of agenda.
