"There are amazing heroes here today whose stories are more powerful than any story I could tell," she tells the 4,500-person crowd. (9.20.10)
let people be themselves and worry about yourself. if you have a problem with the gay community no one really cares what you think. if you have anything negative to say, worry about yourself and allow freedom of speeh and equality for EVERYONE!
who said that? do you know anything about christianity? do you know that they used to fight and kill for their freedoms then? God burned down cities...have you ever heard of Sodom and Gomorrah? they are defending our freedom but where does our freedoms end because it has to somewhere..if we were allowed to do what ever we wanted then what do you think our nation would become. God loves the sinner not the sin, God doesn't love what you do he loves who you are and being gay is not who you are just as being straight isn't who i am it's what I do. I never said that a gay person didn't deserve respect. when did I ever say that? no someone shouldn't be demeaned and mistreated for the choices they made but there are consequences to everyones actions. and being a Christian is reaching out to people...some people don't even know they are commiting a sin don't you think it is a bit selfish to keep that to yourself. and please tell me how I am close minded? because I don't approve of someone who is sinning and wants to allow sin in our country...no that is not being closed minded that is protecting me and protecting and the people in this country. Do you believe in God or not because you are awfully mixed up with what God stands for? I have never judged them I have never said that they are bad people, I know many Gay people that have a great heart but they have still sinned. and for you to say that i'm bringing a lot of negativity, your comment has done the exact same thing...you sound hypocritical. I have never punished the gays...ok if a gay person decides to join the military knowing that they cannot disclose their sexual orientation, they are well aware of this as they sign the CONTRACT, they decide to let it out and they are discharged i'm sorry who's problem is that? if you didn't agree to the terms in the first place why did you sign the contract?
Shouldnt Stephanie, Oh excuse me GAGA be more worried about her Third Album. One Flop One hit. Now She a Politician. Ok you can Dye your Hair, pick up Akon and Use Madonna's erotica themes that doesnt make you Political. I would rather hear her music than she sit up in a Arena She been puppeteered to do...
@Carmalektra22- If our country is founded on christian principles and only those, then there would be no such thing as war. Our soldiers, who I do have much respect for, still kill people and that isn't very christian if you ask me. Yes they are fighting for our freedom and putting theirs lives at risk for us and I am truly thankful for that, but they homosexuals are willing to do the same.. and for who? People so close-minded like yourself to tell them to go away? They deserve respect as much as any heterosexual in the military because they are willing to serve and protect their country. And also, if your so much for our "christian principles" you'd also know that God loves everyone, even the gays! And he would not turn them away, they may be punished and they may not be but you are not the one who decides that. In the end, your opinion is just your opinion and mine is just mine but God's is what really counts. I say just let them be, because they're going to do what they want anyway so everyone being negative is just wasting their time. Go live your life, and let them live theirs!
Thanks Gaga........She rocks......
Ok, if this is really about freedom and equality then let the mosque be built next to the memorial...they are citizens too why shouldn't they be able to worship where they want to worship right? People waver so much with their speeches about equality and their rights. not everyone can have total freedom...there is no such thing, america would collapse otherwise. there needs to be rules and I'm sorry if your only big rule in the military was to not share your sexual orientation? I would happily oblige, why is that important? why do you need to share that with anyone. That is not who you are, that is what you do! not only that but isn't that something everyone knows before they join so isn't it your fault if someone finds out! you sign a contract do you not? if you do not agree to the terms why did you join? I'm sorry but I don't believe there is any reason for you to complain. Why would you want to join something that you don't share the same beliefs with anyway? that's my question and then you put it back on the military like it is their fault after you get discharged not before you even join! People wake up the government isn't a lamp you can rub and out comes a genie with three wishes.
I am Totally with Gaga here, She is trying to prove that not everyone is able to cope with the Gay Community, Although I may not be gay, I have plenty of friends that are and I Love them ALL! I do admit that it may not be the soldiers themselves that are singling out their fellow unit members, it is the DAMN OLD FARTS THAT PUT THIS "DONT ASK, DONT TELL" POLICY INTO PLACE THAT ARE THE SERIOUS HOMOPHOBES!
I agree, Our country is founded on christian principles therefore we expect the people fighting for us to have the same principles. People coming here expect freedom and try to change the way our governments runs I'm sorry but if you go to any other country they will not change their foundation for you. If you don't like the way we do things go somewhere else. and don't say that sexual orientation is who you are, it is a choice it may not feel like it is but it is. Everything that requires action is a choice. Our military has the right to kick someone out because the rules are made very clear before you join.
Lady Gaga, You Need To GO HOME!!! I can't stand the image that you are protraying. You know nothing about the Military. The only thing you know about is gay this and gay that..I get so sick of hearing the garbage that spews out of your mouth! You are influencing our children in a negitive way, and I am so sick of it. Why don't you put some real clothes on shut your blubbering mouth and we would all be better off for it!
False false false
I don't like it and I'm home.
Whether you are anti or pro don't ask don't tell who gives a crap what this idiot thinks.
IT IS AN AMERICANS RIGHT FOR FREEDOM OF SPEECH. So if a gay military personnel feels the need to say out loud that he or she is gay..then that is their god given right HOWEVER if a straight military personnel decides that he or she is going to speak out about their discomforts of the gay community being in the military then that is their right to do so as well...But to inflict harm on a gay person just because they are in the service is not lawful and should be discharged from the service do to hazing. but there is no law against speaking your mind gay or not gay.
i love her
It is disturbing.
First off - Thank you for your service.
Second -She's not talking about you. She's talking about those with issues against gay people, not YOU.
Send home the homophobes? ...What is wrong with this uneducated woman? She is making herself look like an idiot; military members have no problems with anyone, we do what we are told to do, and we serve our country without question. She says "if you cannot serve your country without chauvinism , then leave!". Military members have no say in this matter, it is way over us and is handled by civilians. She is doing this for attention to keep her candle lit. Stick to your music, Stefani Germanotta (Gaga) and feed a hungry child instead of wearing the child's food
