    Not according to your link. Over 70% servicemen support ending the ban and say that they would have no problem working with a gay person.

    Plus Navy....you were in the Navy decades ago. Attitudes change. People are much more tolerant of diversity today than they were in your time.

    Why would you be opposed to the assumedly non-homosexual from receiving punishment if he was fellated by an admitted homosexual. I see them both equally guilty of homosexual conduct. You may have not meant to imply that though. Catch or pitch, they're both gay to me.

    Most likely because he views the "straight" person as a "victim" of the homosexuals unwanted and uncontrollable sexual advances.

    Re: Obama to call for 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' repeal, adviser says

    One of the problems that was brought up back in the early 90's when Clinton created the DADT policy…..living arrangements. I guarantee some people are going to have problems when forced to room with an openly opposite sex attraction challenged American. We are not talking skin color or national origin; we are talking about a sexual action/choice. That is going to cause problems. Men and women don't get roomed together in many bases around the world to reduce sexual relations and sexual assaults. So I would assume this would be a similar situation and when able (can't do it on a Navy ship though) everyone should have their own room. I know the expense that would incur, and so did the Clinton Administration when they compromised with DADT instead of allowing it to be totally out in the open.

    I like the objection that it will make some in the service "uncomfortable." As if being in the military is normally comfortable.

    Watch the Troops cheering Colbert around the 3:05 mark. Those troops seem to think the law is pretty stupid.....
