Letter: Destructive lifestyle

Re “No sex? Permission to speak freely?” (Monitor Forum, Nov. 28):

Laura Cannon has moved from “Jesus obsession” (her words) to sex obsession; from the Kingdom to whoredom; from honor to dishonor. How sad it is to think that the military and our culture might be so swiftly moving to such destructive lifestyles.

Hopefully her perceptions are incorrect, but with the recent revelations of sex scandals at the highest ranks in the military, with the emphasis on sex in the film/TV media, and with the articles in newspapers and magazines being so sexually graphic, and etc., she probably isn’t. May God help us.

If we live in such a "free society"...how come I cant buy a 32 oz soda in NYC???

I hope the day never comes when you "cant buy" a Ring Ding or a Twinkie.

$oros and progressives will always be able to buy Ring Dings and Twinkies, you know, Democrats in Washington. With a Ho Ho in the White Hou$e spending millions to take vacations while the subjects struggle to pay bills day to day, we are truly screwed.

Instead of hurling insults at other posters and discussing non sequiturs (Iranian culture or the Tea Party), you might want to step back a moment and understand some very basic differences between civilian life and military life and life at a defense agency. For instance, if you actually served in our military you might have come across the fact that those who serve are not 9-5 worker bee strangers. Military members, because of their mission are uprooted from their homes (i.e. bases) on a frequent basis. This compels military members to look to other military members and their families for support. Remember that word - family. So having an extramarital in an office is largely a non-affair, since most civilian workers only have, most of the time, a casual relationship with other workers personal lives. But, in the military, nothing is casual, because most military members see each other as family. So an extramarital affair in a military outfit does signify much more than anything in civilian life. One of the main differences is that such an affair can destroy unit cohesion, whether it be a distrust among members of a unit or a loss of confidence in one's commander (think General Allen). And, unlike in civilian life, there are real consequences - the loss of life. The same is also true for defense agencies, such as the CIA, which have the same mission and the same type of unit cohesion as our military. When you have a commander of such an agency act as an adolescent, not only having an affair, but also being criminally careless with classified information, you don't simply have an embarrassing situation, but a situation that could lead to the loss of life - including yours. So, I suggest you take a moment to realize there is a world of difference between having an affair in your safe little place of work and that in a military outfit or defense agency where most of its troops are fighting for your freedom in Afghanistan or some other far-flung hell-hole around the world.

Laura Cannon is part of the misguided liberal mentality that we should all turn a blind eye to deviant behavior, such saying there is no harm in having extramarital affairs while in uniform or in the service of our country. When I was in the Air Force I had a married NCOIC that had followed Ms. Cannon's advise, having an affair within my shop with a married noncom. This affair nearly tore apart my workplace not only because of the favoritism this NCOIC had towards this noncom, but also that as a tight knit group we were all friends with everyone's family, including the NCOIC's wife and the husband of the noncom. Thank goodness we had a commander that did not read from the liberal bible of Ms. Cannon. He put an end to this affair, blocked the promotion of the NCOIC and forced him to retire after nearly serving 18 years in the Air Force. Now this is an example of what happens in the trenches. Now just imagine what happens when this type of affair happens when you have a major command, such as 4-star general John Allen, or David Petraeus, who was in charge of the CIA. Despite what some liberal, "live and let live" types believe, this kind of behavior can be disastrous when it happens to the upper echelon of our military or defense agencies. And for those that argue that extramarital affairs have always happened....well, these foolish folks fail to realize that in an era of email, tweets, 24-hour news cycles and enemies of our country that use today's technology to challenge our nation that an affair is not a private matter known by a select group of insiders, like in the days of Generals Eisenhower or Washington.
