Is the army forcing him to take part in homosexual acts? Or is he just upset that others fighting along side him participates in activities he doesn’t like. Can you be a conscientious objector for reasons such as “The guy next to me likes to eat pork, but I’m not suppose to eat pork.” “The guy next to me likes to drink alcohol, but I don’t like alcohol.” “The guy next to me likes country music, but that’s an abomination to real music.” “The guy next to me has dark skin, I don’t like the idea that dark skin people can carry guns.” “The guy next to me likes pre-marital sex, but I think that’s immoral.”
Aside from my feelings that the guy is a prick, I don’t think the guy even has a case to stand on. I don’t think you can be a conscientious objector for what OTHER people do… rather only against actions that the government is requiring YOU to do. “I object to you making me eat pork; I object to you making me kill others; I object to you making me have pre-marital sex, etc”
I think you’ve summed it all up nicely there.
This is one more example of some people trying to peddle the disingenuous ‘what others do in their private life has a negative impact on ME!’ nonsense. Yet again, the objection against homosexuals boils down to: ‘I refuse to belong to this country club if they’re going to let ‘those people’ join too.’
Are we going to see atheist soldiers attempt the ‘conscientious objector’ thing too because they don’t want to fight alongside Christians or Jews? It would be utterly ridiculous, as is this.
