The top U.S. military officer, Gen. Peter Pace, said Tuesday he should have focused more on military policy and less on his own opinion when he told a newspaper homosexual acts are immoral.His remarks drew opposition from some lawmakers and an advocacy group.

Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Chicago Tribune on Monday that he supports the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy banning openly gay people from serving in the U.S. armed forces.

“In expressing my support for the current policy, I also offered some personal opinions about moral conduct,” Pace said in a statement. “I should have focused more on my support of the policy and less on my personal moral views.”
