    Pentagon: No Plans to Change 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Policy After Court Ruling

    The military will not reinstate any gay service members discharged under the "don't ask, don't tell" policy despite a judge's ruling last week that the policy is unconstitutional, the Pentagon said Monday. Though the ruling gave a boost to gay rights activists trying to overturn the policy via Congress and the courts, a Pentagon spokeswoman said the decision has no bearing on military policy.

    "This ruling has no impact on the current law. The current law is still in effect," spokeswoman Cynthia Smith told FoxNews.com. She said the Justice Department and Defense Department are reviewing the decision, but that nothing will change without congressional action.



    Darn it! No activist judge decisions to become law!

    Damn that Constitution!

    Activist judge = one who rules in a way you do not like.

    By the way, no one has claimed to my knowledge that this meant an immediate change or was the end of any process. Nice try though.

    Sounds like the military is doing what it's supposed to do - follow the laws/orders of it's civilian controllers.

    Nope. Activst judge is one who sets out to supercede the law and the Constitution.

    By the way, no one has claimed to my knowledge that this meant an immediate change or was the end of any process. Nice try though.
    Check out the other thread. Many claimed this judge's decesion would force the military to bow to her will.

    I have no use what ever for activist Judges and i also think that once the Supreme Court rules on any subject it cn not be revisited in the future without a Constitutional Amendment. I am tired of new courts revisiting cases long since decided because some group or activist bunch of ninnies like the ACLU want to cause trouble and make the law in their own warped image.

    What makes Don't Ask, Don't Tell constitutional?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Yep just like the Army can set barriers that only whites can serve.......oh wait it can't. There are restrictions, the Army just isn't able to do whatever it wants as you think it can.

    We were right when we said the judge has no business ruling on military issues.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
