    Because, don't you know? Logic follows that if we let guys that **** guys join the military then we must do the same with guys who shoot innocent bystanders, lynch people and control prostitution rings. Logically of course.

    I'm not. I'm pointing out how those memberships are consitutionally protected in the civilian world, but not in the military world.

    You do support those constitutional rights?

    All we've heard since the 9th Circus made it's ruling is that it's all about constitutionality. Well? Are you going to continue to be a supreme hypocrite? Or, are you going to turn to the Constituion when it suits you and reject it when it doesn't?

    Do your constitutional rights outweigh anyone else's?

    It's all about constitutionality. Right? Or, does constitutionality begin and end with your political beliefs?
    Your lack of actual constitutional knowledge is appalling. Being a member of the KKK is constitutionally protected. The many other actions that come with being a KKK member are not. Being a Christian is constitutionally protected. Stoning women because they are prostitutes and your beliefs say you have to stone them is not. So sure, if you want to join the military and are a KKK member of good standing(hah!) ? Why the hell not? Just know that this:

    Civil Rights Act of 1964 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    is going to make it really hard for your career to ever take off.

    The constitutional rights of a single gay individual outweigh the homophobic demands of the populace. She has the right to be gay and you have the right to ignore it and **** off.

    I couldn't find the right to serve in the military in the constitution.

    Exactly! And the military has an outright ban on such membership. Are you ready for the military to lift that ban? Simple question.

    So, you support the right of a service member to serve as an open member of the KKK?

    Lifting the ban on LGBT Americans is not the same on lifting a ban on KKK members. Plain, and simple.
