I do not support gays in the military. I do believe they are a combat debilitator and not a combat multiplier.

However, given the logic of the court that the Constitutional Commander in Chief of the US Military has declared the policy unconstitutional, I find it hard to disagree with their logic.

The only reprieve would be the Congress, but they, too, have said that they are rescinding the policy.

The change is wrong, but the court’s logic makes sense even though it’s a very liberal 9th circuit.

According to the UCMJ, which hasn't been changed, it is illegal to engage in homosexual acts: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Uniform Code of Military Justice [excerpted]: Article 125. “(a) Any person subject to this chapter who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy. Penetration, however slight, is sufficient 
to complete the offense. (b) Any person found guilty of sodomy shall by punished as a court-martial may direct.” ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If one is homosexual but does not engage in these acts, you can stay in the military until you retire...............

The policy is already on the way out in an orderly fashion by a legislative act passed by congress and signed by Obama.

I have to ask WHY was this even before the 9th circus? Who the hell are they to accelerate the timeline?
