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...............

By that rule, a soldier can be court-martialed for having oral sex with their opposite sex spouse.

All of which I agree with. However, both Congress and Commander in Chief have disagreed with that, and the president on constitutional grounds. Those are the 2 constitutional bodies charged with directing the military. How could the court find otherwise?

I disagree with all three.
