I have no idea how the court would not eliminate the double standard for same sex couples. They clearly have been denied equal rights under the law. Individuals' religious beliefs should not trump fair and equitable treatment under the law. I find it extremely appalling that too many people have not even recieved a basic civics education in our country that we can have a debate about this issue using the constructs of the constitution. Don't waive the flag and talk about your love of our military men and women - when you don't understand the document that they swear to protect.
