The comparison nobody notices

In the "firestorm" over General Pace calling homosexual acts immoral, nobody seems to notice that he isn't discriminating, he is comparing apples to apples.

Pace expresses regret over gay remark - Yahoo! News
Pace's senior staff members said earlier that the general was expressing his personal opinion and did not intend to apologize."
As an individual, I would not want (acceptance of gay behavior) to be our policy, just like I would not want it to be our policy that if we were to find out that so-and-so was sleeping with somebody else's wife, that we would just look the other way, which we do not. We prosecute that kind of immoral behavior," he said, according to the audio and a transcript released by his staff.
Discrimination would be to say that adultery is okay while homosexual activity is not. He didn't condemn the homosexuals, he specifically referred to acts between individuals. And as the military has a policy against adultery and prosecutes for it, would it not be discriminatory to allow homosexual acts to be ignored?
