    Actually, I had no concerns over it because, 1) I don't give a rats ass if gays get married, nor if a chaplain officiates the ceremony, 2) To force a chaplain to marry a gay couple, against his will, would be...eee-lee-gul.

    DADT is already dead. This is about chaplains and gay marriage, which are topics which do piss off the Religious right.

    You used the word "unless", so I suspected you where unaware that the exception was made. I was not criticizing your stance, since I absolutely agree with it.

    But, you still had to get a dig in there, though, huh?

    You flew right through the first three words of that sentence where I said, "It's not wrong...".

    You are seeing things beyond what I said. I was in no way criticizing your comments. I in fact called your attitude "absolutely correct".

    After, you pointed some fabled concern that I'm supposed to have.

    The religious right was pissed off when the left created DADT, so I guess the religious right is just going to be pissed off no matter what.

    I'm as convinced of the existence of the, "Religious Right", as I am that all Tea Partiers are racists and disagree with Obama's policies, because he's black.

    I've heard many argue otherwise...
