Counter to God’s law?

“We need to be very precise then, about what I said wearing my stars and being very conscious of it,” he added. “And that is, very simply, that we should respect those who want to serve the nation but not through the law of the land, condone activity that, in my upbringing, is counter to God’s law.”–General Peter Pace.

I want to know where in God’s law it says that killing your fellow man is moral. The military just isn’t the place to be talking about morality. What parallel universe is the General in? There have been gays serving in the world’s military’s since the time of Alexander and probably before. Actually I can’t find anything in the Ten Commandments or in the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth that specifically condemn homosexuality. The sixth commandment emphatically states, “You shall not kill.” Jesus said, “love your enemies, do good to those who persecute you.” I think the general is just a little confused.
