    So, an overwhelming majority of Americans support allowing homosexuals to serve openly, and now a majority of military personnel are ok with it.

    Why are we even still debating this?

    technically, it is. So, if the ban on gays is such an abomination, so should the ban on membership of an extemist group.

    Why, do you ask?

    Because it falls under Article 134 of the UCMJ, which states:

    “Though not specifically mentioned in this chapter, all disorders and neglects to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the armed forces, all conduct of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces, and crimes and offenses not capital, of which persons subject to this chapter may be guilty, shall be taken cognizance of by a general, special, or summary court-martial, according to the nature and degree of the offense, and shall be punished at the discretion of that court.”
    I'm bettin' we won't see too many Libbos making a stand on that one!

    If a majority of service members were ok with open membership to the KKK, etc., would you show as much support?

    It's their right, under the Constitution, afterall.

    Just in the interest of honesty. I mean, it's un-constitutional for a member of the military to be banned, because he/she is associated with a racial hate group, or a street gang. Right?

    If you're going to do it, go all the way. Support a court decision that says a member of the KKK can freely associate with the personel in his/her unit, without being treated differently Don't be a ****ing hypocrite!
    Yes, obviously terrorist associations, criminal gangs and fascists are the same as homos. Are you that retardedly homophobic?
    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

    Why are you equating homosexuals to hate groups and criminals?

    So, you agree that those bans should be lifted, as well? I mean, afterall, those memberships are Constitutionally protected, outside of the service.

    It's all about constitutionality. Right? Or, does constitutionality begin and end with your political beliefs?
