    And this entire discussion is based on the assumption that DADT will be officially repealed around August, after the training is complete and everyone signs off on it. The memo that was retracted specifically stated that it concerned training and policy that would take affect after DADT was officially repealed.

    So what's the concern here, then? DADT is still going away, as it should, and gays can still serve openly if married, as they should. I don't see what the big deal is. I'm totally missing the point here.

    I think I get it, the Laws in America mean nothing to Liberals and if you support law enforcement your the hater not the people who stuff up and then call you names based on their lies.


    I used to wonder how Obama could possibly still be popular with some Liberals after two years of failure and a new record for lies he's been caught in. Now the answer really jumps out a one. Thanks for the clarification.

    I don't support laws that are clearly a violation of Equal Protection of the Constitution and put in place to discriminate against a specific group of people because another group of people do not agree with their choice of legal, consenting, adult partner.

    No. It is up to the states to determine who can get married(within the frameowrk of the constitution, and court cases deciding that now). If a state allows SSM, then the military would be making social policy to deny them the right to be married by chaplains.

    You would have a point if, and only if, allowing military chaplains perform SSM's in any way breaking the law. Since that is not the case, you have no point here.

    So your saying Marriage is not a social issue.

    Are you saying Marriage is a national defense issue, because we're talking about military?

    Marriage being a state issue does not define what kind of issue it is (ie social, fiscal, national defense, etc), only what form of jurisdiction regulates it.

    I saw nothing in the OP or it's article where the Navy specifically stipulated that Sailors who's ports-of-call are in States which not offer SSM, would be denied a SSM by a military Chaplin.
