    Dont ask Dont tell Policy Ruled Unconstitutional

    (CNN) -- A federal court in Riverside, California, ruled Thursday that the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy -- which bars gay men and lesbians from serving openly -- is unconstitutional.
    "Plaintiff has demonstrated it is entitled to the relief sought on behalf of its members, a judicial declaration that the don't ask, don't tell act violates the Fifth and First Amendments, and a permanent injunction barring its enforcement," concluded U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips, a 1999 Clinton appointee.

    DADT is discriminatory.

    Of course this judge will be referred to as an "activist judge"...

    The right thing to do, is to tear down DADT. But we'll see how it all plays out.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Good. It's about damn time. If you don't want to serve with gays then GTFO.

    Letting people serve openly as they are as a human being is social engineering?

    Where in striking down DADT would it require all people in the military to become gay?

    You do know gays have already been serving, right?

    Get over it. If they're willing to serve and possibly risk their lives if needed they shouldn't be punished for their consensual relationships.

    The military has way too much control over service members on their off time not even counting this and is why so many people get out.

    Get over it.

    How dare this activist judge does what 75% of the country wants! How dare she stand up for free speech! This is an atrocity and will have severe repercussions! It will be massive sodomy throughout the ranks!

    It will be fascinating to watch what happens. Some studies have suggested that a significant number of troops wouldn't reenlist if gays were allowed to serve openly. It'll be very interesting to see if that comes to pass, and if so, what the result is for the military.
