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.

"God, spare me..."

When I told a fried Today about the DOMA ruling he said to me he was afraid that God would turn his back on America.

I told him I was worried God Would turn his front toward America and show his displeasure for all the crap that is going down like Government meddling in Marriage, Abortion, aiding and abetting Satanic Cults and Satanic Countries. Etc.

Hagel’s nutso leftism was a permanent fixture on the Sunday morning shows. It is why the liberal press liked him and why Obama did too.

Hagel loves kissing his master’s boot.

This should answer my dad’s questions about Hagel. Dad is up in years and still thinks that if bad stuff was happening FNC would report it, so he doesn’t believe the country is as bad off as it really is. He and Mom are dealing with enough hard stuff so it’s better if I don’t even go into it with them.

Hagel is a big fan of sodomy. No surprise.

Don’t forget, all they wanted was to be left alone and free to love who they wanted without bothering anyone else. Remember that?

Now you can’t keep their literature out of our K-12th grade schools.

What an honest bunch.

When our troops are nothing but fags, Muslims and gang members, Democrats better hope we don’t have to go to war.

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

Well, I live in Maine and Susan Collins is up for re-election in November 2014. I doubt if she will face a primary challenger.

I will either vote for a third party or I will write in someone else’s name on the ballot. I’m done with RINO’s.

Yes, but we sowed our own seeds of destruction. When we look to government for solutions we get unintended consequences.

Loft somebody. If you have to do it yourself approach good people and see what you come up with.

Perhaps you could find a retired person with good sound values.

We should all be done with RINOs. If you do get someone to run, watch folks like Rove swarm you.

I don’t think we had much choice but to pass Prop 8. It was looking more and more like cities and then the state would buy in. We hoped to pre-empitvely put an end to that. So we did what we’re supposed to, we won, and the courts nullified it. That’s a great big screw you to the Citizens.

His party affiliation surely does matter. Hagel absolutely personifies how left the republican party has gone and continues to do so.

Our military is being sodomized and feminized. A good number of Republican elected officials voted for the former.

Ah, but FNC would think that the Blaze is crazy, conspiratorial stuff so it must be. I must be.

Isn’t it great that the slander of the press and the discriminatory labeling by this regime is a victimless crime - doesn’t cause any real harm to any of us little people? We lose nothing of value - just our good name and our families...

What a tool. Are these the same benefits that they are constantly trying to take away from our brave military personnel?

I know it’s a rhetorical question but does any idiot on the left actually listen to the crap they spew?
