“GetEQUAL strongly opposes the potential nomination of Chuck Hagel to become the next Secretary of Defense. Hagel has, time and time again, taken every opportunity to lambast and denigrate lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans, and the Cabinet is no place for this kind of disrespect,” writes the chair GetEQUAL's board. As I have repeatedly warned: the endless power-grabbing machinations of the political parties, especially the Democrats, prove that they care nothing for the gay community, except for your vote. They have continually gay-baited with sensational issues such as gays in the military. This past election cycle, it was same-sex marriage. Now that Obama won reelection, he will do what he wants and not worry about his so-called constituency. They are not concerned with your general well-being or the state of your souls. No political party will save you. They can not legislate the pain away. The only Savior is Our Lord Jesus Christ.
