    Marines Tell Spouses Clubs: Admit Same-Sex Spouses - ABC News


    NEW YORK – The Marine Corps has advised its legal staff that spouses clubs operating on its installations must admit same-sex spouses if they wish to remain on the bases.
    It's a step that the other service branches have not yet announced as they grapple with how to accommodate same-sex couples following repeal of the don't ask, don't tell policy that barred gays and lesbians from serving openly.
    Underscoring the challenges, the Marines' advisory -- obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press -- refers to an ongoing controversy at the Army's Fort Bragg in North Carolina where the officers' spouses club has denied admission to a same-sex spouse.
    "We do not want a story like this developing in our backyard," the Marines' memo says.

    Are these not private clubs for specific people? That's not equality that is bullying.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    If it is on base it is at least using federal space. It is a good thing.

    Private clubs operating on a military base. While on the military base, you must adhere to military rules on who is allowed.

    The simple solution is if these "spouses clubs" are so butt hurt about it, they can move their happy arses off the base.

    Why would the gay "spouses" even want to attend if they know they aren't wanted. That is stupid.

    Why would the spouses clubs want to be on the base if they have to admit people they don't want? And just FYI, its SOME people that don't want to admit gays. Not every club has this issue.

    Why is the military wanting to change something that has been established and accepted for years and was NEVER a problem?

    No, it's stupid and the Corps is just trying to avoid the hubub that comes when gays are denied anything they want. Military spouses clubs are a cooperative effort between the service and the civilian spouses to support the active duty personnel. By forcing this they could very well split the clubs driving some off base. Eventually that becomes one club having more connection to support services with the host service than the other, the very condition the services want to avoid in the first place.
