A federal appeals court has ordered immigration officials to review their decision not to grant asylum to a gay man who said he was attacked for his sexual orientation in 2002 and 2003 in his native Russia and feared he would be persecuted if forced to return there.

"The New Jersey waitress whose story has been questioned after she claimed she received an anti-gay note instead of a tip on a restaurant bill was dishonorably discharged from the Marines last spring after she stopped showing up, NBC 4 New York has learned."

The military is not allowed to release the actual nature of the discharge. A spokesman for the military noted she was discharged after not showing up, but could not disclose further because of a Privacy Act.
It is extreme to get a dishonorable discharge and she would have had to do something considerably worse than being AWOL. The information from an "anonymous source" at the Pentagon could have misconstrued another of the less than honorable discharges. Maybe some of you guys, who put so much effort into defending her and making her the latest gay cause celebre should ask her to produce her DD214.
The reason for the discharge status wasn't required. Discharge status is public record.

Competent editors would have quashed the story after that bit of fact-checking. I would have.

<quoted text>Oh, so Matthew Shepard wasn't beaten to death by two hateful bigots? I guess he beat himself severely and tied himself to that fence to die. Secondly, there is a difference between a disgusting child molester and a homosexual man....a pedophile molests children, a homosexual man only desires grown men. Pick up a book and read it sometime, hillbilly. And the overwhelming majority of molesters are men with a "fondness" for girls. And as for the NJ lesbian, if she did lie she should apologize to the family she made the false accusation against, and should be ashamed of herself. But naturally, a bigot like YOU wants to use this story to paint ALL gays and lesbians as being dishonest and bad. I've never seen you speak against people who really do mistreat homosexuals, you bigoted hypocrite. You can come on this forum and spew your hatred all you want, but gay rights are here to stay....get used to it.
The gay meth drug pushers killing Matthew Shepard were very bad people. The gays invading the Catholic seminaries and using their focused control of placing homosexuals into different diocese molested young adolescent males, thus were not technically child molesters. The Haitian hoodlums invading the homosexual rights association, beating two homosexuals and stealing computers and files of their supporters, were bad people. Nonetheless, the gays threatening and actually infecting heterosexuals with HIV/AIDS are guilty of killing possibly thousands of people and have never been held responsible. Therefore, in balance, gays are much more deadly than anyone anywhere attacking them. For the record... all homosexuals are dishonest.

Oh, so that's why the Matthew Sheppard Hate Crime law was passed.....because he was killed by two OTHER homosexuals? LOL! Amazing the lenghts you bigots will go to to absolve yourselves of your evil acts....even blaming your own barbaric deeds on homosexuals. And AIDS originated in Africa with STRAIGHT people....read a book sometime. As for the other absurd accusations you make against gays, why don't you post statistics and websites to back them up? What is comes down to is you hate gays, and will tell any lie to justify your hatred. Your lies will never fool gays or any other person with intelligence.
