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.
This is absolutely terrifying.
The Onion might as well go out of business, because who can tell the difference anymore?
(wasted no time)
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.
Chuck Hagel - REPUBLICAN.
I’ll need it too.
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?
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...
Now I have to add this jackass to my prayer list. God help me.
” God, spare me...”
Good request, as He may be on his way here.
Lord, deliver us from this evil.
Chuck Hagel - REPUBLICAN
His party affiliation matters not.
He is a piece of dog dump.
is it true that 75 % of Americans are Gay ?
Short of divine intervention, there is no way to save a nation that gives in to a depraved mind.
Our military is being run by sick, evil scumbags.
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.
He may indeed...
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.
My mind runs along those lines too. Sad day actually...
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.
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.
Get them on that Blaze!
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.
Jerry Rivers is a Republican too. **hahahahaha**
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?
rot in hell, hagel.
Once you go down that road then the Government has power over the issue.
Once they get the power over something they will never let it go.
In the coming years watch as the Government starts taking over Churches piece by piece in the name of equal protection and all because they are granted "Tax Exempt" status.
I mean, get your parents on The Blaze!
Thanks for the reminder. So is McCain, Graham and Rubio.
Once again, stick a fork in it America we’re done.
Today is another result. So are Supreme Court appointments, Obamacare; etc .
I think you make some good points there. As for the latter, I agree there too.
Just wait until we really get into a scrape and realize that virtually every company and field grade officer worth anything has left the service.
I figure soon it will be mandated that Churches cannot dismiss Clergy based on Sexual Orientation via "equal protection under the law" as their validation for meddling.
You pray for liberals? Seriously. Out of respect to our Lord during prayer time, at least I won’t have the hypocrisy to fake my hatred for these scumbags.
