    ĎDonít Ask, Donít Tellí Ban Must Take Effect, Court Rules

    ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Ban Must Take Effect, Court Rules - Businessweek

    July 6 (Bloomberg) -- The Obama administration must immediately end the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy on gays serving in the armed forces, a federal appeals court said.

    The Log Cabin Republicans, a group that promotes equal rights for gays and lesbians, asked a U.S. appeals court to block further enforcement of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” while the court reviews a September lower court ruling that declared the law unconstitutional. The San Francisco-based appeals court today granted the organization’s request.

    “As of today, the government is prohibited from applying or enforcing ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ -- the law is over and done with,” Dan Woods, a lawyer representing the Log Cabin Republicans said in an interview. “All investigations must stop, all discharge proceedings must halt immediately,” he said.

    Too much haste will definitely cause problems.

    I agree.

    I think that gays serving in the military might cause a problem with unit cohesiveness in some units.

    Problem with that is, thats what they were saying about YOU 60-70 years ago.

    Blacks cant serve with whites, it would disrupt the unit, well you know what, it did disrupt the unit, the unit got over it, the unit changed.

    There are now generals, admirals, commanders that are black, where it would have been inconceivable all those years ago.

    Beat that with a stick.

    Being professionals and adults shold keep problems to a minimum. Surely you believe our soldiers can be professional and adult?

    Why then, is the service training soldiers to deal with the open gay policies? I mean, if they're so ready for it, there shouldn't be any need for training. Right?

    Surely you believe our soldiers can be professional and adult?
    Sure they can...as long as they have sufficient adult supervision.

    Adults need adult supervision? Okkkkk . . . .

    Part of ebing adult and professional is being prepared. Recieving training is not a sign they can't handle it.

    Gays have waited long enough. Let the straight folks deal with their bigotry on their own. Do it now.

    I think it is just the reverse of that. The straight people will cause the problem with unit cohesiveness. They are the ones that will cause the problems not the gays. Get rid of the bigots and there will not be a problem. It has nothing to do with the gays causing a problem. It is the action of closed minded idiots that will make the difficulties.

    I support the repeal of DADT. But people largely don't oppose it because they are bigots.
