    Right. Nor should it be.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Let me know when you enlist and are discriminated against.

    Maybe because an EO can be undone with another pen?

    Exactly! I would assume then that you aren't enlisting?

    We actually don't care for the most part, we want neither conservatives telling us how we think, nor do we want gay activists telling us what to think. It's far more an issue amongst civillians than is it for those who serve/served.
    Yes, I had noticed the complete indifference of the right on this issue.

    Possibly, though, the last time it was used for something like this it stood.

    If you haven't noticed, it's because your bias is in the way.

    Why do you keep bringing this up? It's not an argument for or against anything. It doesn't refute anyone's position on anything. Why are you obsessed with whether or not people are enlisting?

    Me enlisting or not has about as much relevance as the price of tea in China.

    People like YOU aren't satisfied until LGBT issues are rammed up everyone's nose and flaunted so you can scream "discrimination" or "homophobe" to all your liberal buddies for the weekly circle jerk newsletter. This is akin to the military pushing Christianity and making it mandetory for Church and flaunting it - imagine the outrage from people like you about that! The epic whine parade would cry havoc.
    Absolutely not. There is no rule in the military that you can or cannot admit to being Christian. That is a silly argument. And there isn't anyone who is trying to ram homoxsexuality up anyone's nose. What there IS is a few people who still want to believe that they have a right to control other people's lives because they aren't comfortable with their orientation. It is no different than the bigots who didn't want to drink out of the same drinking fountains as blacks or any other discrimination.
    This isn't about "flaunting" anything. Its about allowing qualified people to serve honestly.
