    absolutely true

    Justice department appeals judge’s ‘don’t-ask-don’t-tell’ ruling – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    it is not spin to observe that obama simply does not care very much about gay issues

    we've seen how determinedly he chases what he craves, health care, reg reform, start

    other examples which revealingly paint obama's character include the mosque, reaching out to iran, closing gitmo, moving ksm to manhattan, suing arizona...

    it is not spin to observe the things obama holds high priority for

    and gays has never been one of em

    know the man

    sorry

    i always felt this forum seemed relatively unaware of that movement, certainly personified and expressed by leadership in the activist community

    i've been much more in touch, for instance, with that particular sentiment than dadt supporters near us, and i've tried to point it out to em

    i sympathize sincerely with the deep heartbreak i know they feel

    this forum has really taught me how deeply a very significant portion of progressivism FEELS about this

    it's almost but not quite as intense as the way ABORTION has always pulled on my side

    and it's not just gays, not at all, this forum has showed me

    it is, i feel, kind of a youth constituency, which of course should be respected, not discounted for their youth

    we all envy their youth

    but around here, i feel, eyes will be opened

    it will hurt, but it's very, very good for these people, they need to see

    stay up, everyone, do not lose your dignity, not a drop, over this

    you will kill your cause if you do

    I believe gays in the military will have a detrimental effect. They are incapable of combat.

    Gay people just aren't meant to fight.

    How they exist is a mystery to me.

    How could you not like women if you're a guy?

    Either your a liberal trying to make conservatives look bad or you are truly a homophobic bigot (and I cannot believe I just said that )

    Do you have any facts to back up your belief aside from slandering homosexuals?
