Super right-winged emails

Ok, I'm not sure how or when but somehow I managed to get myself on this super conservative U.S. mailing list and some of the emails they've sent (like....99%) are truthfully a bit scary.  I mean I get freedom of speech and all that but whoo~, some of the stuff they've sent me are just....well in my opinion a little crazy.  Usually I just delete them, if I'm bored or have some free time I read one or two for amusement's sake but it kind of freaks me out that in a country like the U.S. there are actually people who think and agree with some of these emails.  They read kind of like brainwashing propoganda and not the well-made kind that's difficult to spot either.  Today I got one regarding homosexuals in the military and here's an excerpt from it;

============================================================
"WHY KEEP OPEN HOMOSEXUALITY OUT OF THE MILITARY?

Four reasons:  1) Allowing open homosexuality especially hurts unit cohesion and would cost American lives in war, damaging the trustshared in close proximity, common sleeping quarters and showering facilities that are unavoidable in close combat.  2) Men and women do not share the same showers for obvious reasons, so why force men to share showers with openly homosexual men?  This fact alone would hurt recruiting.  3) The rampant spread of the HIV-AIDS virus contaminates the blood often shared by necessity on the battlefield.  Soldiers requiring blood-transfusions and medics would be immediately endangered.  4) "Gay promotion quotas" would soon be forced upon presently impartial promotion boards, causing a burdensome rise in sexually-charged "equal opportunity" complaints against commanders, especially those who offend gays by inadvertently speaking of their traditional Judeo-Christian faith."

=============================================================

If you want to read the whole email it's copy/pasted behind the cut.  It's really long though, but I guess it's good to know what's out there.  Takes all kinds to make the world go 'round, eh?
