Statement by Secretary Hagel on DOMA Ruling
U.S. Department of Defense ^ | 6/26/2013 | Chuck Hagel

Posted on 06/26/2013 2:15:49 PM PDT by MrShoop

The Department of Defense welcomes the Supreme Court's decision today on the Defense of Marriage Act. The department will immediately begin the process of implementing the Supreme Court's decision in consultation with the Department of Justice and other executive branch agencies. The Department of Defense intends to make the same benefits available to all military spouses -- regardless of sexual orientation -- as soon as possible. That is now the law and it is the right thing to do.

Every person who serves our nation in uniform stepped forward with courage and commitment. All that matters is their patriotism, their willingness to serve their country, and their qualifications to do so. Today's ruling helps ensure that all men and women who serve this country can be treated fairly and equally, with the full dignity and respect they so richly deserve.

The Onion might as well go out of business, because who can tell the difference anymore?

Try the other thread where the WH is celebrating gays in the military and the fact that it makes the country safer.

Take oxygen with you.

It is hard to believe that I would ever agree with Obama’s Rev Wright...but the more America turns its back on God, the more certain the judgment that will follow.

Lets hear it for another RINO Republicans voted in so we’d have a majority. LMAO...

Question: Will anyone remember this the next time a RINO runs?

Answer: ROTFLOL

Oh, we’ve got to vote for them..., that way when they something the Left can say, we’ll, the Republicans voted for it too.

God, spare me...

Chuck Hagel - REPUBLICAN

His party affiliation matters not.

He is a piece of dog dump.

Amen.

Short of divine intervention, there is no way to save a nation that gives in to a depraved mind.

The sin is serious enough but they don’t even realize how stupid they are. Is this what the do for work on our dime?

If I had told my boss, I was holding a celebration for gays, he would have put a boot up the bootie and said celebrate that and then get your a$$ back to work.

“Every person who serves our nation in uniform stepped forward with courage and commitment.”

Unless they happen to shoot up a base while screaming Allahulakbar!, in which case we must find out how we failed them.
