    neither is sodomy, but people still do it.

    ignoring the issue or calling it a non-issue is not going to make it go away. Article 125 needs to be addressed, not ignored. If, in conjuction with the repeal of DADT they also address Article 125, then there would be no issue. no possibility for abuse of the Article, no one setting themself up for punishment etc. I fail to see why you refuse to acknowledge that Article 125 could cause problems, instead of admitting that it is an issue that needs to be addressed.

    Article 125 is not a major issue and can easily be address when doing away with discrimination against homosexuals.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I guess you can just wave your magic fairy wand and make it go away then? Obviously you have never worked in govt or the military or else you would know that NOTHING can ever be "easily addressed".

    Awesome news!! I'm so glad that liberal activists ruling has been thwarted. I want gays to be 2nd class citizens and wouldn't have it any other way, but I'll disguise that opinion but making **** up like Gays will negatively effect a groups cohesion! Don't ask me where I got it from, it just sounded like a legitimate concern so I use that excuse!

    LOL, How dare we try to make them equal...it's not like they are born that way and can't control it.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    not that it is , in any way, relevant to this particular topic but that has yet to be proven with any certainty.

    Worked in the military. And yes, it can be easily addressed. It will come with the admission into the service of qualified individuals and doing away with discrimination. .

    Legally, we can. That doesn't mean people won't habor discrimnary thoughts or act in a discriminatory way. but there will be legal remedy. And the military is pretty good at following orders.

    "Easily", maybe not. Less difficultly than many of you think, yes. Article 125 will become as much a nonissue as it is for straits, and exposure to gays will quickly get people past their initial queasiness. As usual, no one has brought forward a good reason why it can't be done, nor why it should not be done, nor has any one actually referenced the ruling itself with any knowledge of what it contains.

    The homophobic bigots responsible for the creation of DADT are an embarassment to this nation. They should be villified at every opportunity.
