    When you sign a contract both partys have to live up to it not just the enlistee......The government if breaking their contract with the enlistee........

    Your making a drastic change to the contract they sign........There are a lot of people on this country who are religeous and God fearing and they should be be requirerd to see this debauchery.........

    I don't think gays should be able to serve openly because my religious views put me on a higher pedestal then them..I will make stuff up about unit cohesion, then when a survey comes out showing otherwise I will create a new excuse that doesn't make very much sense. I will tell you I am not bigoted but I, more than likely, am.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    So your saying the Gov can do anything they want to a member regardless how repugnant it might be to them...Where do you draw the line?

    There is no change being made. Homosexuality isn't even mentioned in their contract. Changing the number of years they have to serve would be a change. Changing the government they have to serve would be a change. The military can and does change their rules all the time. If I hire a construction crew to build an addition to my house, I can't back out of the contract because they hired gay men to do the work if it's not in the contract that they can only hire straight.

    Bottom line the Gov signs a contract with you when you enlist and both parties should be required to live up to it..............

    You draw the line with an elected government. This isn't some twisted universe. The governments not going to pass a law forcing them to eat boogers or something.

    Again, what part of their contract is the government not living up to? Have you seen an enlistment contract recently? Nowhere on it does it guarantee that the service member won't have to serve with gays.

    What are you talking about???? There is a law in effect called DADT....People sign up knowing that...........If you cancel that law that is a huge change...........
