    You mean like homosexuality is genetic?

    That's about as absurd as labeling this a civil rights issue.

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    What liberty? The defense of the 95% trumps the sexual orientation of the 5%

    How is the "saftey of those that serve" negatively impacted by allowing gays to serve in the military?

    Gays are serving in the military.

    How does repealing DADT benefit the military?

    When I ask a question based upon a statement and you then ask me a question based upon a question I asked, I won't answer. Sorry.

    You won't answer because you have no answer. I did answer your question gays are serving now.

    Yeah, I have no answer. Repealing DADT allows the military to have a higher number of qualified people to serve our country. Look at us now--we are suffering tremendously because our military is stretched thin with numbers of people. To me, anyone who meets the qualifications (physical) to serve should be able to serve. How anyone can argue that such isn't anything but positive is beyond me.

    I can think of many ways. I doubt it would matter to you.
