    Many of you keep touting the fact that the US is one of the last to take such a step yet you won’t think about the reasons {they don’t have bans} just like you won’t think about how this legislation can harm {our} military.
    1. The reasons we are one of the last countries to do this are political reasons.

    2. What are you talking about? How what legislation can harm our military?

    That is not quite accurate. Gays are allowed to serve by ruling of the Major-General of the Medical Service in Russia. Gays in russia in general have all the same rights as straits except they cannot marry, and since adoption is only to married couples, they cannot adopt.

    If you don't need to look things up, then why are you asking us to do your homework for you?

    NP, it's kinda like militant ANYTHING. They are a small minority. Either they will get ignored or they'll get "dealt with". It's how all extremists need to be dealt with.

    Hmmm... as far as I know, people who serve in the military have the exact same rights as the rest of us. They can vote for President, Senators, Congressman, Governors, etc... Are you saying that they can't?

    Wow, all the doomsday premonitions. I never thought I would see so much FEAR! This is honest to god FEAR of the homosexuals. It's almost like a phobia of some sort...if only there was a name for it.

    1. Of course the reasons are political. Did you really think it’s because people Americans just hate gay people and want to make their lives miserable?

    I look a little beyond such elementary thoughts and try to see the bigger picture.

    2. Oh, “Motion to Concur in the House Amendment to the Senate Amendment to H.R. 2965” is the legislation I’m referring to.
