I am curious why this judge has standing to even think his order would be obeyed.

Again, the Judge needs to read the Constitution.

Congress regulates the military, not the Judicial Branch.

Because the biggest advances the Left has ever made have been through the courts- it’s a ploy that works, and is permanent, mostly.

‘nationwide injunction stopping enforcement’

WTF

a judge can do this over a military or congressional ruling?

Oh right, so it’s meaningless, except it makes meaningless headlines that stir up Obama’s base...

Let me introduce myself. I am Virginia Phillips, and I am the self-anointed expert on how a military should be managed. History, tradition, experience, and respect for those who run the military? I don't need them. You see, I am a lawyer. And not just a regular lawyer, I am a JUDGE.

If you think I am not worthy of the bench, you can attempt to impeach and convict me--otherwise, I will be defining for an entire nation the way they must conduct military personnel policy.

I require total submission, because you see, I wear a BLACK ROBE.

The policy seems unConstitutional to me, anyway. Why don’t homosexuals have the same right to serve as anyone else? If their sexual activity becomes an issue and is detrimental to the service, drum them out. I say the same thing for ALL soldiers. It is a dirty little barely secret that a LARGE percentage of females serving in Iraq were sent home pregnant and a LARGE number of men and women committed adultery with other soldiers without any repercussions except for the destroyed families at home. The biggest sellers in the base stores are condoms and pregnancy tests. They have rules against such things, but they ignore those, so why not this one?

Our military has always discriminated—
discriminated against the blind, quadriplegics, deaf, mentally ill, etc.
No disrespect to the above.
Just a fact, the military discriminates to maintain the strongest fighting force in the world.
When open homosexuality is permitted, the military may find themselves bogged down with sexual harassment investigations and charges.

Well, we now see the liberal judiciary legislating from the bench figure that their homo-sexual agenda window is about to close to openly place gays in the military. So they are acting now betting Obama will not act to stop them.

Judge just put gays in harm's way over in Afghanistan... Muslims kill gays.

So, if these idiots want to put themselves out there... adios...

And, they shouldn't count on the heterosexual soldiers to watch their backs.

Gays will have put themselves in danger.

And, it's all a moot point since it takes an act of Congress to change Don't Ask, Don't Tell...

Let me see if I can get through your thick skull, Smith. Having homosexuals in your unit is the same thing as having a barracks full of women controlled and run by horny heterosexual males, taking showers with them, sleeping with them, etc. It’s simply NOT DONE.

For all of you out there that don’t have a problem with it, then i suggest you go pick up a freaking rifle and take the place of the millions of soldiers out there that DO!

I don’t know what Romney would do; with Obama, it is a good chance he will not act on the appeal.

The military should quietly not comply and let they gays sue them in court if Obama does not act. By that time it will be a new Congress and likely Obama would be out of office before the dust settles.

it's not like the US military is just another government agency

On the other hand perhaps next some judge will demand the US cease and desist military operations in Afghanistan until it can provide accommodations for LGBT’s - wouldn't that be rich

There are many, many reasons why homosexuals should not be in the military.

They forcibly rape other men.

They have a high rate of AIDS which often cannot be detected for 6 months, but can still be infective, and the military is well known for situations where people bleed on each other and may need emergency blood transfusions.

Normal men and women are very uncomfortable around memebers of their same sex who are lusting after them. I can attest personally to this. ANd in the forced close quarters in the military, this is a recipe for disaster.

It will destroy morale for the above reasons and also because superiors may have sex dealings with their subordinates which will create another sort of hell.

Homosexuals are notoriously promiscuous and cannot control their urges, more hell.

Finally, homosexuality is a mental illness and moral and character failing and as such, those who identify as homosexuals should not be permitted to serve in the military.

Serving in the military is a privilege, not a right.

And women should have their own units (or whatever the right terminology is), as they used to have. Immorality between men and women isn’t good either. Any woman getting pregnant out of marriage should receive a dishonorable discharge, IMO. Adultery is an offense according to military law (again, I don’t know the right terminology) and should be punished if that is military code of Justice.

Again, the Judge needs to read the Constitution. Congress regulates the military, not the Judicial Branch.

And the judiciary checks the actions of Congress. Legislation is not immune to judicial review just because it applies to the military. Believe me, you do not want to give Congress a way to pass laws without the threat of judicial scrutiny, especially when it comes to the military. The imagined "threat" of homosexuals openly serving is nothing compared to what Congress and the Executive would do with the Armed Forces if not shackled by the Constitution and the interpreters of laws.

OK, Smith. Right now male and female soldiers are mating like rabbits in barracks in Iraq and nothing is being done until the female gets pregnant at which time she is sent home and honorably discharged. I know three instances of that happening in one unit during one tour, so I suspect it is commonplace. So, you mean to tell me that the service would suffer more if homosexuals are allowed to openly serve? Why not enforce regs against sexual contact between soldiers without regard for gender and stay out of their heads? If they wish to serve, let them and demand they and all others keep their sexual proclivities outside of their service? Genital contact is not necessary for military service, regardless of preference.

That entire post is ridiculously bigoted to the point of being humorous. If that was you intent, bravo. Everything you ascribed to EVERY homosexual can also be ascribed to many heterosexuals. There are many homosexuals serving today with honor. All recruits should be treated equally and required to live by the military code which means banning sexual contact between soldiers and punishing those guilty of adultery. They ignore it now and it is extremely hypocritical for the brass to object on the grounds of morality-— or morale-— when there is rampant adultery and pregnancy outside of marriage in the ranks, ESPECIALLY in war zones!
