I recently wrote my Senator, Richard Burr asking him to support repeal of DADT. Today, I received a response from Senator Burr and thought I’d share his view.
I’d like to jump down to paragraph 4 of Senator Burr’s letter and I will quote:
“I strongly oppose and condemn unjust discrimination and would not support a policy that encouraged harrassment against any American. At the same time, our country is currently at war, and any changes to our military personnel policies must be carefully reviewed to ensure they do not jeopardize the security and safety of our men and women in uniform, including the gays and lesbians who are currently serving our country bravely. For this reason, I do not support a change in policy at this time.”
Well, Senator Burr. When it comes time for you to run again for office I hope you will understand when I don’t give money to your campaign.
And Senator Burr, I hope you will also understand that I will no longer vote for you to return to Washington.
You see, Senator Burr, I also “strongly oppose and condemn discrimination.”
